Is your mindset holding you back?
Are you feeling defeated before you even start?
Does the thought of the journey paralyze you?
If so, that’s okay!
We should be a little nervous & afraid when we face a new challenge, goal or opportunity because it’s the UNKNOWN! However, don’t let that initial fear paralyze you so much that you refuse to actively seek out your goals, dreams & aspirations.
I want to encourage you this year, before you set your 2021 goals start by:
1. Purchasing a journal or notebook
2. Understanding S.M.A.R.T Goals
By doing these steps first you’ll create a 2021 roadmap that clearly defines the steps necessary to achieve your goals, while using your journal to properly track, amend, adjust and pivot your when necessary.
So, do you keep a journal???
I hope you do! I’ve been journaling or writing in a diary since I was 6 years old. From sharing my every evolving emotion or jotting down the things I wanted to achieve journals have been a guiding light in my life.
When it comes to using your journal for goal setting it’s really simple:
Step One: Dedicate 1 journal to your goals.
Step Two: Jot down 3-5 goals for 2021 and STOP!
Step Three: Write each goal on separate pages within your journal. Dedicating 2-3 blank pages per goal.
Once you’ve done that, you’re ready to convert your basic goals into S.M.A.R.T Goals.
SETTING SMART GOALS
I won’t be rude and ask, “how smart are you?” but I will ask you, “how SMART are your goals?” I know it sounds funny but really what I am asking is, ARE YOU GOALS:
If you aren’t sure then make sure by using use my steps for defining, setting and achieving S.M.A.R.T goals.
