It's the time of year when everyone is thinking about the new year that is to come. What do I want to change? What do I want to gain? Many of us will simply toy around with the idea of change while even few of us will actually make the effort to change.
If this year you want to make real changes in your life then take a look at this guide to help you achieve your goals.
Before you set on this journey, I want to take a moment to share with you some key components that will either make or break your goal setting.
- Get associated to what you want. Really feel it. Allow yourself to imagine the things you want. Really hear it, see it and feel it in your bones,
- Ask yourself the hard questions. Is this goal ecological for me? Is this goal truly for me or am I doing this because of some external pressure?
- Is this goal realistic? For example Losing five pounds in a month is realistic. Asking to lose five pounds in a day is setting yourself up for failure.
- Who or what resources do I have in my life that will help me achieve this amazing goal?
- What will you begin to do RIGHT NOW to get what you want?
No matter what your goal is, remember that it is possible and there is help and guidance out there if you want or need it. Email your written goals to Resource Therapy in Brooklyn Park for a chance to win a free session with a Certified Hypnotherapist & Therapeutic Coach.
What do you want?
Ask yourself one simple question...
If I knew I could not fail, What would I want?
Do not misread this question! This question is not asking what you DON'T want but what you DO want. Spend some time figuring out exactly what you want. Be sure to state your goal or outcome in a positive statement.
Ho do you know you have it?
When deciding what we want it is important to get specific about exactly what we want. How will you know that you have reached your goal? How are you behaving? How are you feeling when you have reached it?
Document what you want.
It's important to make every step of this process real. Start by making a list. Ask yourself the questions in this article and write them down. When you have reached your goal; what do you see? What are you saying to yourself?
What will happen?
If you reach your goal, what will happen? Get in touch with the feelings of reaching your goal. Put on motivating music and get really associated to the feeling of achieving your desired outcome.
Tell as many people as you can. It's one thing to make a goal and keep it to ourselves but when we tell it to someone we give it life. We share our goals and allow ourselves to put our intentions out in the world.
This goal has to be about you. You are the only person who can make the changes you want within yourself. But, by telling others and asking them to help remind you is a great way of keeping yourself accountable and on track.
Job Well Done
Once you have achieved your goal reward yourself. Tell other people of your accomplishments and give yourself a pat on the back. Too often we're afraid to tell people the good things we have done in fear of judgement or tooting our own horn. But, this is one time you can do this. SHARE YOUR JOY!
