Do you take action every day to achieve your goals?
Many people will take the time to set Goals, but then fail to take action to achieve that goal.
Many people set a goal to lose weight and then don’t plan menus or schedule time to exercise. If this describes you, try Weight Watchers Online - Follow the Plan Entirely Online. Start Today! You will get the support you need and all the tools to make weight loss a breeze.
Many people will set a goal to save $100./month but they don’t complete a budget on how to live with out this $100. Every month they put $100 in their savings and then remove most if not all by the end of the month, all the time telling themselves it will be different next month. If this sounds like you find out how your can get out of debt fast with the Ultimate Debt Guide.
Many people will set a goal for a higher paying better job – but then fail to get the education or obtain the skills they will need for that job.
Many people will set a goal to spend more quality time with their family. Yet, they don’t treat this time – as they would any other important appointment. Really, it should be an appointment that would only be cancelled in extreme emergencies.
These are just a few of common goals (or wishes) that most people have.
What divides the achievers from the non-achievers?
Action speaks louder than words. Action gets results – words don’t. If you fail to take continuous action towards your goals then your subconscious mind thinks the goal is not obtainable and will stop working to achieve it.
Taking persistent action everyday to achieve a goal does two things:
1. Brings your goal that much closer to obtainment
2. Makes your subconscious mind believe your goal is reachable.
If you are serious about improving your life and reaching your goals then …
1. Write your goals down – Goals need to be Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic and Timely (S.M.A.R.T. goals).
2. Break your goals down into bite size pieces – remember anyone can eat an elephant one bite at a time.
3. Schedule time each and every day to do at least 1 task that will bring you that much closer to achieving your goal.
4. Keep a success scrapbook. Every day write down your success that day – such as I saved $5.00 by not buying that frapachino or I exercised for 30 minutes today. This scrapbook can become an enormous motivator when your feeling down.
5. Listen and grow by reading and listening to motivational information. One of my favorite motivational websites is Nightingale Conant. They are the world leader in personal development since 1960 and offer programs from the best in the field.
