Goals - Getting Back on Track

Getting back on track once you have put your goals aside is not always easy…

Interested in the 100Day Challenge * Rocket Fuel for Success? Only 3 Days Left

No matter how determined we are life gets in the way. Our resolutions are put on the back shelve, and we are in the same position month after month, year after year.

You have all heard the saying “keep doing what you’re doing and keep getting what you are getting”.
This is such a true statement – how many people do you know who are stuck in the same rut – unhappy – spinning their wheels and still doing the same thing over and over.
It is not easy to reach your goals – if it were everyone would be successful. It takes determination, a specific plan, and doing what it takes every day. If you want a change you are going to need to change.

"The little things in life make the biggest difference – if you manage your day you can change your life."

You need to set specific goals – the more specific the better. Goal setting is a powerful process when done right. By knowing precisely what you want to achieve and breaking it down into bit size chunks your ideal future will become a reality.

I am a firm believer that nothing is impossible – if you change your thoughts, beliefs and how you talk to yourself, you will be amazed at how different life will become. When you truly believe you can achieve that goal and take these specific steps – you will achieve what you really want in this life.
Goal setting made easy…

First you need to look at the big picture – what is truly important in your life – where do you see yourself in 5 years. By really thinking about this and writing it down on paper you will be able to create a plan that will take you where you want to go.

  • Be very specific the more detail the better.

Then you need to break it down – into smaller and smaller targets. Create a one year plan, six month plan, and one month plan of progressively smaller goals.

  • What are the things you can do today and tomorrow that will lead you in that direction?

What actions do you need to take to make this a reality? Each of these steps should be based on the previous plan.

  • When you have broken it down – you need to make a daily “To Do List” of things you will do to make your vision a reality.

You may be saying to yourself – whew to much work for me or when will I have the time? This is your life and you can make anything happen unless you make excuses. You have the time if you will make it a priority.

  • Envision your goals, see yourself where you want to be – what will your life be like – how will you feel.

It is not easy – but it is simple when you follow your master plan. Don’t let your head get in the way – negative thoughts are your worst enemy. Don’t share you goals with people who will not support you in your dream. When you share your vision with people who are negative or don’t believe it can be done, you are opening yourself up for self-defeating thoughts.

  • Write down what you say to yourself – and change the negative into a positive.

Everyone will have times when they run into obstacles, it is what you do with them that counts. This is the time when tenacity and belief in you will make a difference.

Put together a vision board you can hang up – this may seem silly but it will really help cement your vision. When you start getting discouraged look at it and remember you can do what ever you are determined to do with a strong vision and a good plan you can become unstoppable

I have a secret weapon it is like Rocket Fuel for Success. It is called 100Day challenge and it is only opened up 4 times a years. If you are determined to reach the top of your goals and are not afraid of hard work check it out.

Steps to Creating Your Vision

I originally wrote this a year ago but I think it is time to dust it off and reintroduce these important principles...

If you are like me, there are times when life can become overwhelming, causing you to lose sight of your dreams. You are thrown a curve-ball, and suddenly you are off balanced.

Or maybe you just haven’t articulated what you really want in life. Be it business, lifestyle, Family
you get the picture.

Now is the time to do it ! 

Visualization is a powerful tool and when you the emotion of being there (feel how you would if you were there now)  you will become unstoppable.

Vision Boards, Affirmation, Inspiration

Steps to Creating Your Vision:

  • Identify your core values
  • What are your passions?
  • What do you believe is your purpose?
  • What values are important to you.
  • What does your future look like?
Write these questions with the answers really think about it. This will be your blueprint.

Once you have these questions answered ask yourself what you want your ideal life to look like – dream big and get rid of the thought that it couldn't be your life.  Feel the emotions of having that life.


Steps to Complete

  1. Everyday meditate and visualize the life you are going to have.
  2. Write affirmations and repeat them in the morning.
  3. Create a vision board and hang it in your office where you can see it.
  4. Make goals that give you the daily tasks that will get you there…
I have tried many tools – the two most powerful resources I have found are.
