4 Effective keys to ahieving your goals every time 

Every year you set down goals you want to achieve. It may be at the beginning of the year – yes you know those New Year Goals. It may be in July getting set for the new Financial Year. You think about them, you write them down and may even look at putting plans into place. Yet somehow many of those goals, if not all, just don’t seem to become reality.

So what has happened? What has stopped you from achieving your goals? Let’s look at four key areas that you can work on to achieve the best outcome from your goal setting.

1. Set an unshakeable foundation for your goals

A solid foundation is going to practically guarantee goal achievement. Your foundation includes looking at what goals you are setting – are they the right goals or are they goals that you think you need to include because someone has said it is important to have goals. Do those goals align with your business, your mission, your vision? Once you have the right goals you need the right tools. Tools may include planners, programs, goal setting systems, time management. Look at what you already have in place to assist you – are you using those tools effectively.  Too often we rush off to get new tools when the answer may be in how we are using the tools we already have.

2. Identify the goals that are worth going after

So you have some goals written down. You have goals that align with your business. Do you try to achieve all these goals?  The next step is to really look at each of these goals and ask the question: Will this goal actually grow my business?  You can often get bogged down in the number of goals that you end up with.

Now is the time to refine those goals so that your time and effort goes into achieving specific goals that result in growth in your business.

3. Mindset

Are you self-sabotaging your success? What self-destructive behaviour is interfering with your motivation to achieve your goals? What’s stopping you from living your best life?  Your mindset can cause you to burn out before you get to the finish line.  How often have you started the year full of enthusiasm, then lost your motivation, become overwhelmed with life, with business, and allowed those negative voices to lead you astray? Stop and look at what you have been doing. Take time to reflect on the changes that need to happen for success. Now is the time to work on your mindset and behaviour to achieve significant lifestyle changes allowing you to achieve the goals you have set.

4. Dream bigger

Take your goals up a level – think about the outcomes that you can have. Those outcomes can flow not just into your business but could be a change in the world.  Just by dreaming bigger and achieving bigger in your business, you could have a positive impact on the world.
When you set in place these four keys you will not only achieve success in your goals. That success will flow into your life, you will feel more confident, you will have more time, you will start to have the life you want and have dreamed of having – you will be the change you want to be in the world.
