Realize Your Goals With These 5 Great Techniques

By Xavier Nelson

You hear it time and again, set goals, make sure and plan. But do

you really take the time to do it? Be honest.

If you are like so many others, then you think about it, even plan

things out in your head, or maybe make some notes on a notepad, but

do you seriously plan and strategize?

Goals keep us motivated. But sometimes, people find it too hard to

achieve their goals. Maybe because they have set long-term goals

before setting short-term ones, or they did not plan their goals

carefully.

Goal-setting strategies are important especially for those who want

to achieve long-term goals.

Here are five goal-setting techniques to help you realize them:

1. Start with short-term goals that will lead you to long-term ones.

Sometimes, people start with short-term goals unconsciously. Why

unconsciously? Some of them may have considered the goals to be

long-term at the time they planned them; and after achieving a goal,

they realize that they are in fact, looking forward to a longer

one.

Some are content with their short-term goals, but after a while

will realize that they also need to attain long-term ones. Short-term

goals seem to be our set off for longer ones. They will motivate

the person to plan for longer goals, which will usually take some

time before achieving them in full.

If you have a big project, breaking it into smaller steps will

help you stay focused and on track. You will feel better as you reach

each goal, keeping you fired up and ready for the next one.

2. Make sure you really want the goal. You have to ask yourself:

"Do I really want this goal? Will this goal give me a better life?"

Answering these questions will give you more passion to achieve your

goal. Some people recall their past to find out why and how they

came up with this goal.

Look at the big picture, regardless if the goal is short-term or

long-term. How will this step help me achieve the endresult, my

overall desire?

3. Speak up. Don't keep your goals to yourself or a secret.

Sharing your goals could help you get the support you may need

from others. Some people are too shy to tell others about their goals

for reasons like they are afraid they cannot achieve these in the end,

or they lack the courage to speak their minds. This is not a good

habit because when the time comes that you really need their

support, you may have trouble getting it. Besides, sharing the

fruits of your goals is uplifting to the mind and spirit not just

for you, but your friends and family that are helping you stay

strong also benefit from seeing you succeed.

4. Write down your goals. While some say this strategy is more

advisable for those who have a long list of goals, I tend to disagree.

Write them down, even if it only is one simple step. Your mind is an

incredible tool and it has been proven that as soon as you write a

goal down, your mind (subconcious or also known as creative mind)

will begin to work on solutions to help you reach that goal.

After writing them, it is advisable to review them because this will

encourage you to achieve them.

5. Stay on track and don't give up. Reviewing notes as well as

your written goals will help open your mind to see if you are on

the right track.

There may be challenges you will have to face and how you react to

them will ultimately determine your level of success. Reach out to

your support network for a helping hand if you feel you are struggling

and keep them up to date on your progress. They can help you stay

accountable to your set task.

Going back to your notes will also potentially help you uncover some

missed items that could potentially cause great damage to your overall

project, so always review and refine your goal and the tasks needed

to achieve it.

6. Celebrate. Party. Have fun.

This extra, step is here to remind you that you definitely need to

take the time to reward yourself along the way. Don't wait until you

have completed all of your tasks and achieved your overall goal.

Do something small to reward yourself along the way too, maybe

sleep in an extra hour, grab a coffee from Starbucks instead of

the fast food joint around the corner. Any kind of pat on the back

that you can give yourself is well deserved. You work hard, don't

forget to play too.
