When it comes to setting goals, it is important to be realistic and if it is a weight loss goal you must factor in that you should lose no more than 0.5 to 1 kilogram per week. This is the recommended healthy rate of weight loss that should be achievable without being on a diet and having to starve yourself. In this mission make sure you know you are worthy of your achievements, know clearly what you want and get out there and take action toward what you want. It is said that if you don’t know where you are going, you will fall into the plans of other people and flop around yourself unable to make clear and deceive decisions. With these 3 simple strategies, you are able to set a goal and start going about achieving it.
Be clear and specific.
When you set your goal, state very clearly what you want to achieve. Make it something short and easy to remember so you can focus on it and hold it in your mind’s eye to be able to know that you are on track. This will shape your choices and your decisions making you better able to achieve what you set out to do. Specificity is essential when going about your daily routine as when you put the goal out there, you must be able to recite it and know that you are on track with what you decide to eat and your exercise for the results you deserve.
Give your goal a deadline.
Do this so you can have some pull toward it as if you don’t have a deadline, you might take a very long time to get there or not get there at all. To set a deadline, you create a powerful commitment with yourself to achieve what you set out to do while knowing your own true power and ability to create through a specific and timed goal. A deadline will help you to take action and consistently work toward what you want without putting undue pressure on yourself but having you accountable to yourself, others and your ultimate outcome.
Associate into your success.
This is where you feel the feelings of having it now, you see what you would see, hear what you would hear and listen to what you say to yourself knowing you achieved your goal. When you do this, you are able to know what it is like to have achieved your goal and how good that feels. By doing this, you are more likely to stick to it because this gives you a purpose for doing it. While thinking about your purpose for achieving this goal, make sure you hold strong to that purpose and reason and know that you can love your body now and have pull toward your goals.
A sample of a goal might be:
