You cannot chase your dream if you haven't even decided what your dream actually is…
Do you want to lose weight?
Do you want to get fit?
Do you want strong, tight, firm muscles?
Do you want more energy?
Do you want a better quality of life as you get older?
Do you want to avoid injury, aches and pains?
Do you want to feel fantastic?
Do you want it all?
Researchers at Yale University completed a study on a graduating year of students. They asked how many of the students had goals and how many had written their goals down. Only 10% had set goals for their lives and only 2% had written those goals down. 20 years later the students of that graduating year were tracked and studied again. The group that had originally set goals were more successful, wealthier and happier than the entire 90% who had not set goals. The 2% who had written their goals down were more successful, wealthier and happier than the other 98%!!
We get the message, don't just set goals for every aspect of your life WRITE THEM DOWN!!
A more recent study was completed studying the difference between millionaires and billionaires. A characteristic that kept repeating itself was that millionaires read their goals once a day, billionaires reviewed, studied and reiterated their goals several times each and everyday.
We get the message. Put your goals where you can see them. Read them often!!
When you know what it is that you really want ask yourself and then write down the answer to the following questions...
What am I prepared to change to get what I want?
How will I feel if I get what I want?
How will I feel if I don't get what I want?
What is my time limit to get what I want?
What am I going to do to get what I want?
What help, if any, do I need from other people to get what I want?
Quick Tip: Once you have set a goal and set the time limit for achieving that goal, you have completed the hardest part of getting what you want. Now all you have to do is put a success plan into practice.
Thought for the day... “A person without a goal is like a boat without a rudder...
A goal without a time limit is just a dream!!”
