Tip 1: Write you goals down This is the most important thing, you must write your goals down, other wise how are you meant to remember exactly what they were and how you are going at achieving them. I suggest writing them down somewhere you will see them everyday. I had one client laminate his goals and stick them in the shower so he could look at them every morning while he had his morning shower.
Tip 2: Make your goals specific When writing your goals down make sure you make them specific. The more specific the goal the more measurable and powerful it becomes. For instance if you want to loose weight, instead of writing down a general goal like this year I want to lose 10Kg, write down what weight you want to be and by what date.
Tip3: Write them like you already have them When you write your goals down, write them down like you already have them. This tricks your subconscious into thinking you have already achieved your goal, which believe it or not makes it easier for you to achieve them.
Tip4: Make sure your goals are measurable What I mean by that is make sure you can measure your achievement numerically. So if you want to earn more money write specifically how much more money you want to earn. If you want to run a marathon then write how many Kms you want to be able to run, and if you want to spend more time with your kids, write down how many more hours per week or day that you want to spend with them.
Tip 5: Review your goals on a daily basis I mentioned this when I spoke about writing them down, but you must look at your goals as much as possible. Daily is best, spending 5 minutes a day thinking about and planning your goals will go along way in helping you achieve them. And remember YOU AND ONLY YOU are the captain of your life, you steer your ship, when you have goals to follow they act like a map giving us focus and motivation. Goals make it easier to create a life we love and to not accept anything less than amazing! I wish you all health, happiness and joy for 2011.
