I have indirectly been walking you through a S.W.O.T. Analysis by giving the five steps to setting smart goals, and we have arrived at step three: set attainable goals.
There comes a time when we not only have to prioritize our goals but we have to be SMART about it. We’ve gotten specific about what we want and determined how to measure our progress. Now let’s move into step three: Are your goals ATTAINABLE?
Ask yourself if your goals are too far-fetched? Setting yourself up to strive for certain things in life is extremely personal. You want to avoid being too broad in your thinking.
The objective is to make a list and check it twice. If your goals are too far reaching, you can easily set yourself up to burnout and never complete anything you originally set out to do.
Identify inside of yourself the most attainable goal you would like to achieve and work until you reach it. It’s better to be the master of one than the master or none.
It’s all in your mind. The attitude you develop towards your goal will carry you further than having an astronomical list of things to do that read more like a bucket list than reality.
It’s okay to dream but in order to grow and experience the personal transformation that we seek, we have to be firm in the goals we set for ourselves and measure our progress with integrity.
Quitting is not an option and as I continue to guide your thoughts, the beauty in working on yourself is getting real with who you are and what you represent while making personal adjustments.
*Getting Specific gives you direction.
*Measuring your progress gives you insight to your productivity.
*Now examining the attainability of your goals keeps you focused on completing one thing at a time versus a life-long to-do list.
Life is in the power of the tongue. Your self talk needs to be clear so that your continued effort translates to your mindset. You inspire people who pretend not to see you, so take pride in your self improvement.
Set your goals. Stay quiet about them if you want to. Crush them continually, and clap for yourself as you move along. Speak life into your dreams and step into your authority to make it happen.
I’ll check in with you later.
