Today, my friends, we are talking about goals! I’m going to be completely candid with you, EFF setting goals come January 1. Why should we wait to envision the life we want for ourselves? Instead, why not set the goals NOW to crush for 2019 like a boss? I figure, I have the motivation and determination to sit down and design my life right now, on this very gloomy day in early November. So here I am, typing out the goals I want to set for myself for the New Year.
But then I took it one step further. I’ve gone to my local Target and purchased an actual notebook. Something that I can hold and carry with me every day. Sure, I carry my phone everywhere I go, but I want more of a physical representation for how determined I am about seeing my goals unfold in 2019. I am a firm believer that we must write out our goals in order for them to manifest themselves into reality. I am ready to set the stage for the story I want for my life.
How to be a Goal Digger
Find a way. Often times we set goals for ourselves and when they start to not work out we give up. Um, that’s not the way to crush your goals, my friends. Instead, look at your goal and find a way to accomplish it. That may mean changing the way you approach completing it, asking for help, or going about it in an out of the box way.
Make a timeline. Set your goal, set a date you’d like your goal completed by, and then work backwards a timeline on the steps you need to accomplish in order to complete your goal. This way you will have a visual map on the steps you need to take in order to crush it.
Identify your resources and use them. Write down the resources you have at your disposal, whether it is people, skills, or something else – sometimes we don’t realize the things around us that are actually helpful in actualizing our goals. This is especially true with the people around us. If you don’t know how to do something in order to complete your goal, more likely than not someone around you has those sets of skills and would be willing to help. “You don’t lack resources. You lack resourcefulness.” – Tony Robbins.
Visualize. Once you’ve set your goals, sit down and visualize your life as if you’ve already completed them. This way you can get a taste of what your life would be like if your goals were completed and that taste will fuel your fire to complete them!
