Creating Mind-Boggling Goal Success
There is a joke in the gym world that if you are a regular don’t bother saying “Hello” to all the new people in January because most likely you will never see them again. Sadly, there is a good reason for that. Goals are tricky and creating ones you will stick to through completion is a bit of an art.
What is needed to keep yourself on track to achieve your goals.
Firstly, as I said in my last newsletter (click HERE for a refresher) the goals need to have shorter timelines and be very specific.
In addition, the secret sauce achieving a goal includes:
Self-love: Basically, self-love says “you want this thing? Well, I love you so much I will do what it takes to get it for you, even when its hard or makes someone else mad at me”. A strong sense of self love is in important part of goal achievement.
Discipline: I’m not just talking about the discipline to say no to cookies when you are trying to drop some L-B’s. I am talking about the discipline of setting time on your schedule for the things you will need to do to achieve that goal. Which also involves saying “no” to other things during those time slots that might be more fun, like shopping.
Catching yourself before allowing resistance to take over: The favorite tactic of the part of you that is resistant to achieving your goal is distraction. As in, “I should check Amazon to see if that thing I want is on sale” which becomes an hour falling into the black hole of the internet and later wondering how you went from working on your business plan to reading about fights in the royal family.
Distraction and resistance happen, that’s part of life but catching yourself and redirecting back to your goal takes is an important part of the process.
re-evaluate and re-adjust: Sometimes you follow all your plan and what you wanted doesn’t materialize. Or more commonly you never did any of the activities on your plan. When that happens it’s time to reevaluate goals and your plan and adjust.
It’s not failure to say that in the “cost benefit analysis” you figured out it a particular goal might just be too much work.
The black hole of mistakes
Making the goal so big you can’t actually see it happening:
That old phrase “Shoot for the moon and you will hit the stars” isn’t really true. If your unconscious mind looks at your goal and says “nope a million dollars in one year?, that’s not possible” it doesn’t generate the feeling frequency necessary to actually hit the moon, or the stars for that matter. It sees the effort as a waste of effort and shuts down.
Personally, I can see myself always going first class when I travel, that image comes easily to my mind. But the private plane?…. not so much. Create goals that are a stretch but not so far that you can’t actually imagine a realistic scenario where it happens. Like winning the masters Tournament when you are just learning to golf. If your mind says “Yes, it will be a lot of work, but I can see that happening” then you will know are on the right track.
Love yourself enough to do the hard work to create the life you want for yourself.
