Goal Setting and follow through


We have all heard about and probably talked about setting goals for ourselves or for others at some point in our lives whether that’s in business or our “New Year’s Resolutions”! But how many of us have actually taken the time to think about what we really want in our lives?  for each area of our lives? At different times in our lives?


In business we might have had targets to achieve, we may have set targets to achieve. We might have written a business plan. We might have gone through an appraisal process that set goals for us or gave us the opportunity to set a few for ourselves.


Did we believe in them?

Did we achieve them?

Did we focus on them daily?

Did we rush home and go through the same process for our lives??


If the answer is no to any of those questions then join the vast majority of people around, most people are not good at deciding what they want and actually following through consistently enough to achieve it.



You don’t have to be like the vast majority, why not step out of the 99% who dabble and become part of the elite 1% who DO?


Keep your life in balance by setting goals in more than one area of your life e.g. business, hobbies, relationships, finance, personal development etc.

Imagine that you are a child again and that you are dreaming about what you would like for Christmas – remember? When you wanted everything and believed you could have it and were really excited about it? Get in that state of mind once more and then write down all of the things you would like to have or achieve for each area of your life.


Next pick out the most important 3 from each area and write those down. State them in the positive as if they are already yours and then write down WHY you must achieve this goal. What would it mean to you emotionally, financially, to your relationships, to your business.

What would it COST you if you did not achieve this goal? How would it make you feel? How would it affect your future, your finances, your relationships?


Decide when must you achieve each goal by? Set a specific date. Write down one thing that you can do TODAY to take a step towards achieving that goal. Is it a car you want? Go and book a test drive, get pictures of it to put up around you, have it as your screen saver – keep it in your vision as much as possible. Do you want to learn to sing? Google voice coaches – book a session.

What ever it is for you – do some thing RIGHT NOW!

Finally – keep those top goals, in writing with you at all times. Read them three times each day. Visualise yourself having actually achieved those things, imagine your life right now with those things. Visualise them in as much detail as possible, make the experience real because the brain does not know the difference between what it real and what is vividly imagined. It will move you powerfully towards that reality.


Oh – and last but not least HAVE FUN whilst you’re making those dreams come true!!
