goals catIf you want to achieve your goal, then using goal setting strategies can help you become successful. First, you have to ask yourself why is your goal so important to you? Your goal needs to be powerful enough to motivate you to achieve it. If it really doesn’t matter to you whether you achieve it or not, you’re doomed to fail.

You MUST be committed to achieving your goal. Otherwise, when the going gets tough, you won’t get going! You’ll put off the tasks that you need to undertake in order to accomplish your goal because it’s all too hard or you’re having problems in your life and you just don’t have the mental energy to deal with your goal at the moment.

Remember, a goal that is extremely important to you will allow you to power through all the objections you encounter on your way to reaching the pinnacle.

Another important tip for goal setting strategies is to only focus on a few goals at the time. If you have too many goals at once, you won’t have enough time to accomplish them all, or else become overwhelmed and dump them all in the too hard basket. By focusing on only one to three goals at the same time, you’re giving yourself a far greater chance of achieving them.

It’s important that you plan how you will reach your goal. By breaking down your objective into smaller, more manageable steps, you’ll experience a real sense of accomplishment as you achieve each smaller section of your goal.

Remember the SMARTI system – your goal needs to be Specific, it needs to be Measurable, it needs to be Action or Activity based, it needs to be Realistic, it needs to have a Timeframe or deadline and it absolutely has to Inspire you!

If your goal passes every SMARTI requirement, then you have a great chance of achieving it.

Goal setting strategies can really help you accomplish what you set out to do. So as long as you’re committed to the process, and your goal is powerful enough to motivate you, there’s no reason why you won’t succeed.
