The Power of Goal Setting

If you asked 100 people if they had written goals you would probably get an unrealistic response to your question.  Many would say that they have written goals but actually don’t.  Why is that?  Perhaps because they know that they should but they just haven’t done it yet or they may be procrastinators.  I believe it’s because we all know that we should have them written down, we just don’t.

I am not here to belittle anyone who doesn’t have their goals written down.  My goal is to help anyone who has an interest in achieving what they really want out of life no matter what it is.  The first step is to merely acknowledge that you want more out of life.  We all do.  I don’t know anyone who doesn’t.  No matter what that desire may be you must take steps to get to that place or possess that object you desire.

The first most crucial step to setting a goal is to write it down.

Goals are just dreams with plans.  So dream big and put them down on paper.  Put the paper in your wallet or purse and be ready to show it to someone when they ask you if you have written your goals down.  I can see the gigantic smile on your face and you pull it out and actually show it to them.  Even the person who asks the question may be surprised to find someone who not only has them written down but has them with them, probably all the time.  Wow!

Part of our success here at the12monthplan.com is to help as many people as possible live a better life.  The real first part of achieving any goal is to know what you want that goal to be.  What is the outcome that you desire?  If you write it down and look at it every day your mind will do miraculous things to make that dream a reality.  So now is the time to get started.

Below are instructions on getting your goals written down.  Don’t get hung up on the particular details.  If there is something you want write it down.  For example, I want to lose 30 pounds or I want to have $100,000.00 in my bank account in 12 months, write it down.  Don’t be afraid to dream big.  “If you want to launch big ships, you have to go where the water is deep.”

When you are finished put a timeline beside each goal of when you want that goal to become a reality.  Now read that goal every day and spend some quiet time focusing on how you are going to achieve that goal.  Now your mind will start to act creatively to make that goal come to fruition.   You will begin to find energy and ideas to make it happen and you have to follow through on those actions. You must act.

This is the way to accomplish your goal.
