The next few posts are going to be all about goal setting& how to set them 🙂 So if you’ve ever had a goal (which you probably have) but you didn’t know how to set it or plan it, then here’s how you do it.
So to start off here are the 7 steps you need to think about when setting a goal:
1. The past doesn’t equal the future
This means that if you had a similar goal in the past and you didn’t achieve it, then that doesn’t mean you can’t achieve it in the future! You can’t change the past but you can create the future you want!
2. Anything you can dream and believe, you can create!
If you dream about something and you really want it and believe in it, then you can achieve it.
3. Let your mind go crazy
Think of all the possibilities you have when setting your goal. Don’t just look straight ahead, look at what’s around you and let your mind you crazy. Be creative!
4. Forget about the opinions of others
Forget about what others say. Because this is your life and these are your dreams. If others don’t like them then don’t let it worry you. You can do whatever you want with your life and goals.
5. Write and read them as often as you can
If you look at your goals everyday then it will be easier for you to follow them becasue you will know what to do. Write your goal out on a piece of paper, and put it on your wall. This way you will always be able to read it and you will never lose track!
6. Have a dream book
Keep a book in which you write in your goals (so you don’t forget about them) and stick pictures of your goal in it. For example if your goal is to win a race at school, find a picture of people running (at the Olympics maybe?) This way you’ll have a clearer idea of your vision and you’ll be able to visualise it better.
7. Tap into the Reticular Activating System
This means that you have to visualise your goal everyday so you can stick to it. The best time to do that is in the morning because then you will know what you need to do during the day in order to achieve your goal.
