Setting goals is the first step in turning the invisible into the visible – Tony Robbins
What goals do you have for 2020?
Now is the best time to turn your attention to your future. Have you set your goals for your life, to achieve your dreams? Goals for the next year, next month, and next week? What strategies do you have laid out to accomplish those desires? Are your goals taking you closer to your dreams?
Today is the first day of the rest of your life!
Setting goals personally and professionally makes sure that your life will take a positive turn in the coming year. Remember, setting goals motivates you to takes action and turn your ideas into reality.
Take a pen and a piece of paper and spell out what you want to accomplish in the next 12 month. The act of putting your intentions on paper makes the goal setting and achieving process more real. You are not just thinking about your goals, but are taking the first action step by writing them down.
Discipline is the ladder to success. There is an old saying, “if we don’t get it done today, there is always tomorrow”. Well, this may work for non-achievers. If you want to be the lead actor in your life’s success story, it is your responsibility to exhibit the highest level of discipline, if you want to reach your dreams within a set time frame. So take action, and get things done.
It does not make sense to set goals that are easily achievable. Always aim higher and stretch yourself beyond your comfort zone. It will make reaching your goals a more rewarding experience. The process of stretching yourself beyond what you feel comfortable with, gives you a tremendous boost of energy, that will keep your momentum accelerating.
When you get off course, and you fall behind in your time line, don’t adjust your goals. Instead adjust your actions and change your approach in dealing with your goals. Remember, turning your back on your goals has a demotivating effect, like losing air in your tires.
Setting goals can turn “nothing” into “something”. It will take you from an idea, to heights that you didn’t even dream of before. Nothing is impossible to those who believe. Believe in themselves, and believe in their dreams. What seemed impossible, will be made possible, by taking the action steps that you laid out in your success plan.
Get started and never give up!
