Week 10 – Goals That You Will Achieve

Last week you decided what you truly want for yourself and that you are committed to that vision. This week we will take a look at creating goals that will get you results. Enjoying the process is the key factor that will bring you success. This is critical and must be part of the plan. When you are breaking up your goal into the actual steps that you will do each week, make those steps as enjoyable as possible. It is better for you to begin walking, then add a little jog into your walk, then increase the time jogging until it feels so good you want to jog the entire time. This will create an enjoyable new habit. If you were to just start jogging, and it hurts and you don’t like it and every time you have to force yourself out the door, then you are setting yourself up for failure. Break your goal into small chunks that are doable and enjoyable and you will achieve your vision and enjoy the journey!

What is your overall goal?

Specifically how will you know you achieved your goal?

How will you measure your goal?

Specifically, when do you want to achieve your goal?

Now break your goal down to realistic steps that, when you achieve them, you will meet your timeline. Be very specific in your description of what steps you are taking and work backwards from your overall goal. 

Overall Goal ______________________________________________ Date ______________

¾ Goal __________________________________________________ Date ______________

½ Goal __________________________________________________ Date ______________

¼ Goal __________________________________________________ Date ______________

Weekly Goal ______________________________________________ 

Now use the Action plan or a journal to write down your specific goals for this week. Make them as enjoyable as possible. Use a Power Thought that reinforces your will to achieve your goal!
