Have you ever started each year with a new year's resolution and then when you don't actually get there you wonder why. When you actually look back at the progress you made over planning what you did you realize you were set up to fail from the very beginning.
this article will help you learn the steps to set a goal and achieve it no matter how big or small it is.
Before we get stuck into this article I would like to thank Sandor Kiss, the creator of the course "How to achieve your personal goals in 12 months" on Udemy (https://www.udemy.com/how-to-achieve-anything-you-want-in-12-months/), for giving me the honor to write this article.
1- Know exactly what you really want.
Now you may think you know what you want but when it comes down to the nitty gritty of it some of us really want something different to what we believe. For example you might want to lose weight but then you ask yourself why do you want to lose weight. Perhaps it's because you feel unhappy. So really is your goal to feel happy and losing weight.
2- Don't let fear get in your way
We might not want to admit it or might not even be aware of it. A number of us are actually scared to achieve our desires. There might be a number of reasons for that, for instance, the fear to learn new skill because you will begin to think that you will mess up and make lots of mistakes. In fact, you should get out of your comfort zone and have the guts to fail, learn from your mistakes then master that new skill.
Once you know and are aware of the things that you need to do in order to reach your goals it becomes much easier to achieve them.
3- Break everything down into bursts.
Now what I mean by bursts of small chunks of information or tasks and goals that we're going to set now.
The reason we do this briefly is because rather than setting one long term goal that could be months away from where we are today. In fact, we're going to set it into smaller easier to manage chunks and then as you achieve these tasks, you'll feel as though you're progressing and getting closer to your goal.
4- Work backwards to reach the end.
Now if that sounds confusing don't worry I know it is. What this means basically is that in order to get to where you need to be to begin you're going to start from where your end goal actually finishes and work backwards will then do that to a point where you're ready to create your very first day of tasks. So you can get started straightaway.
5- Review and reach forward in your challenges and your goals
You need to continuously monitor and adjust your targets your goals and the tasks that you have to complete to ensure you're constantly heading in the right direction when required or needed to change goals.
It's important to stay on target and there's a number of things that contempt your way from being as committed as you should be such as procrastination.
Finally we look at creating momentum. This is all about staying motivated and positive and working towards your goals. I hope this article helped you to achieve at least one goal in your life. If you like this article and want more of this kind of topics, follow me and comment below.
