These are the next steps you need to achieve your goals.
First write down your goals.
This is probably the most important step of all. You should do more than just list something general like – “I want to buy a car”, that isn’t really a motivating statement.
You should write a good description like – “I want to buy a luxurious new car with leather heated seats, surround sound and a heated steering wheel. A car equipped with all the latest technology and …”.
You have to have a strong statement and something that you can visualize. Something that will be specific and not just a wish.
Write this on something that you can keep handy and be able to see all the time. use a sticky note on your computer or print it on a business card. You could even print out a 4 x6 copy and frame it to keep on your desk. Keep those reminders around you at all times.
It’s important to be able to see your written goals at all times. It will help you stay focused on achieving your goals and will create an image of where you want to go.
The second thing you have to do is ask yourself “why” you want to achieve these goals.
If you don’t write down your “Why“, you won’t have the motivation needed to continue trying to achieve your goals and you will fail. Write down your answer on a piece of paper.
Your why has to be more than just “I want“. There are a lot of reasons you have to describe why you want to accomplish the goals you’re trying to achieve.
The reason can be that you want to make 10,000.00 dollars in six months or you want to lose a pound of weight each week until you lose 10 pounds.
List all the reasons you can think of and imagine what benefits you’ll get from them. The more reasons you have, the motivation you have will be stronger.
To keep yourself motivated and focused, you may want to frame your reasons and hang them on your wall.
Every morning the first thing you should do is read your reasons “Why” to help keep you going in the right direction.
The third thing is to trick yourself into getting started.
We’ve all heard these sayings hundreds of times.
“Dream Big Dreams!”
“Imagine A Goal As Big As You Can Conceive!”
These are not the dreams you want to imagine because at the end of the day when you get home from work these dreams can be overwhelming. They can be unachievable and you would probably put off starting the work you need to do to accomplish them.
Here’s a trick you can use to get you started that works very well and will not overwhelm you regardless of how big your dream is.
Write down a small task every night, something that you can do the next day. Make it something that will only take you 10 to 15 minutes to do.
Say you wanted to lose some weight and you wanted to work out every day for 30 minutes. Your task for the day could be to do one exercise for your lower abs by doing ten reps. That small task of doing that one exercise 10 times would only take about 3-4 minutes, but once you got started, you would probably finish your 30 minutes of exercise.
That small task you set is a small trick to get you started. Once you’ve started you’ll find out that you will do more than you actually planned.
You can set big goals for yourself, but remember to make small tasks to achieve them.
Now that you have two more of the “next steps you need to achieve your goals“, you can start to put them into action.
