10 Ways To Achieve Your Goals In 2019. It is the beginning of the year and many people are fired up. Resolutions are being set with so much hope. It is indeed time for a fresh start. Sadly three months down the line most people fall of the wagon. Here is how one can set and achieve their goals set for the year.
Determine Your Life Goals
Ask yourself some important questions about what you want for your life. A career life goal might be to open your own business. A fitness goal might be to become fit. A personal goal might be to have a family one day. These goals can be incredibly broad.
Make Your Goals Specific
When setting goals, they should answer the highly specific questions of who, what, where, when, and why. For each specific goal you make, you should ask yourself why it is a goal and how it helps your life goals.
Set Time-Bound Goals
Your goals must have a deadline. Again, this means that you know when you can celebrate success. When you are working on a deadline, your sense of urgency increases and achievement will come that much quicker.
Adjust Your Goals Periodically
You may find yourself set in your ways concerning broad life goals, but take the time to re-evaluate your smaller goals. Are you accomplishing them according to your time frame? Are they still necessary to keep you on track towards your larger life goals? Allow yourself the flexibility to adjust your goals.
Understand Why This Goal Is Important
If you don’t know why the goal is important to you, then it’s just random. Understanding the why will give you a stronger sense of purpose, and this sense of purpose will keep you motivated during the difficult times.
Tell The World
The minute you decide that you are ready to commit to a goal be it changing careers, getting in shape or finding more time for travel or family, tell your everyone what you intend to do. The more people you tell, the more you are obligated to follow through with your goals
Focus On Goals Everyday
Focusing daily on our goals helps us succeed in reaching them because it’s a constant reminder of what we desire in life. Create a vision board with pictures, symbols and words relating to goals, or even a simple daily visualization practice where you imagine yourself having achieved the goal.
Passion And Hard Work
Achieving important goals in life can truly be difficult yet so rewarding. Enthusiasm, self-discipline, commitment, and perseverance is what’s needed to get our desired results. Once a goal is realized, a dream turned into reality, we gain acknowledgement that through hard work and passion nothing is impossible.
Think of Potential Obstacles And Solutions
Obstacles to achieving goals can include fear of failure, fear of success and lack of self-confidence. An obstacle can be less threatening if there are potential solutions. So think about some real solutions to help overcome roadblocks in the path to your success.
Keep Track Of Your Progress
Writing in a journal is a great way to keep track of both personal and professional progress. Checking in with yourself and acknowledging the progress made towards a certain goal is key to staying motivated. It may even encourage you to work harder.
