DONT SET GOALS UNTIL YOU READ THIS
Don’t set goals …… Without taking these 14 tips
1. Make it specific and challenging
Telling yourself, “I’m going to do my best” leaves
the door open to settle for sub-par effort. Make
yourself accountable, be specific and raise the
2. Remind yourself that it’s going to be difficult
Two reasons people throw in the towel on their
goals is because they underestimate how long it’s
going to take and how difficult it’s going to be.
This isn’t going to happen to you will it?
3. Make sure it’s your goal
Don’t pick a goal that you’re “supposed” to
choose or a goal that someone gives you. Own
4. Just pick one
You’ll be amazed on what you can do when you
lock-‐in on one thing.
5. Don’t let your goal consume you
Just because I told you to pick one, that doesn’t
mean to forget everything else. Don’t let your
goal blind you from other important things (i.e.
family, sleep, health, school, work, etc.)
6. Celebrate your victories
If you’re not careful you’re going to miss those
hard-‐to-‐notice successes, don’t let that
happen. Those are going to fuel your confidence
along the way.
7. Have your goal in your face every day
Have a poster, a saying, picture, or anything else
to remind you of your goal every day.
8. Have a finish line
Could you imagine running in a race that doesn’t
end? Eventually your motivation would drop, your
energy would give, and your enjoyment will
whither. The same thing happens when you don’t
have a finish line to your goal.
9. Know your obstacles
Think about and write down all the things you’re
going to face that will get in the way of your goal
achievement. Do you still want to climb this
10. Have plans to combat those obstacles
What are you going to do when adversity strikes?
11. Start BIG, work small
Don’t get caught into the minute details of
achieving your goal before you start. For
example, some people trying to get into shape
don’t begin immediately because they’re so
worried about having the perfect shoes, the right
watch, and ideal meal plan, that it gets in the way
of them actually doing something. Just go; take
care of the details later.
12. Lock‐in on the present
Goal attainment is achieved by giving your
attention to the only thing you can control –
doing something today.
13. Process over results
Focus on the process and let the results follow.
14. Have fun
No explanation needed.
