Not reaching the goals that you set for yourself and your business?
Well if you’re not then you may be surprised to learn that there’s actually a real reason why…
As silly as it sounds it can be as simple as you the goals that you’ve set for yourself simply were not the right goals!
Here’s what I mean…
Maybe the goals that you for yourself simply weren’t the right goals for YOU!
Or it could just be that they just need a little tweaking.
Whatever your situation is, the following tips will help you set better business goals plus they will also help you with improving your personal life too!
Tip # 1: Make Sure Your Goals Are Really, Really Good!
If your goal doesn’t excite you then guess what??? It’s not a good goal!
And if it’s not a good goal then you won’t feel motivated to plan for success, let alone follow through on your plans!
In the end, your “results” will be that you have yet another unachieved goal so instead of going that route, make sure that you create goals that make you feel motivated and excited.
Your heart should pound with a bit of anticipation when you think about your goal and if reaching your goal frightens you even just a little bit… then that’s often a good sign!
It means you’ll be challenged to reach it and challenging goals are always more fun to attain than those that seem easy or dull.
Tip # 2: Be As Detailed As Possible About Your Goals
Vague goals are not only difficult to achieve but they’re also hard to evaluate too!
So how will you know when you’ve achieved success?
Well when you’re creating your goals, be specific about what you want to achieve and how you’re going to achieve it.
For example, do you want to write a book this year?
Now it’s time to get down and dirty with the details…
- When will you publish it?
- When will you have the outline completed?
- Who will edit it?
- How many pages will you write each day?
Get detailed with your goals and your plans.
Knowing these details allows you to stay on track and also know when you’re actually reached some milestones too!
Tip # 3: Practicing Predicting Your Future
One of the keys to setting better goals is to look both at your past successes and failures and then look at the future.
When looking at your past, assess the goals you achieved and the goals you didn’t quite reach.
Then dig deep to uncover why some goals were easier to attain than others and make adjustments to your future goals based on what you’ve discovered.
So when you begin to look forward, try to envision yourself having achieved your goal.
- What does success look like?
- What does it feel like?
- How does your life and your business change as a result of your success?
Goal setting may seem easy yet it can be a significant challenge to set good goals for yourself and your business.
Be sure that you keep your goals in line with your vision of your future and what success means to you.
Use the past as a stepping stone and learning tool and create specific goals that excite you.
Success & Blessings!
