Goal Achievement for the New Year

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas as I did. All of my family was in town my mom, 2 sisters, 2 brothers, and the wife of one of my brother's. We had a great time of really not doing much, but that's what Christmas is all about at our house, just lounging around the fire, maybe watching a movie, playing chess (my brother and sister had some serious matches this year), spending time with each other, and eating some good food...cheesecake included (gotta make some exceptions for Christmas right?). My brother and I whipped up the cheesecake this year, as well as last, and boy was it good. In my mind for cheesecake to be worth it its gotta be like 10 pounds for the entire cake and feel like a meal after having a piece.

All in all the break was good as I hope it was for you too.

Today I want to talk to you about goal setting or as Dax Moy, author of TheMagicHundred, states Goal Achievement.

If you really want to achieve your goals, whatever they may be, for 2008, you will want to answer these few questions. Again this can apply to any field or area in life.

1.) WHAT do you want, i.e. what's your goal? Please be very specific, i.e. what exactly is it and in what time frame (not what you will settle for or what seems realistic, the bigger the goal is, the bigger the challenge, the more you will work toward it).

2.) WHY do you want what you want? In other words, WHY is this important to you? Be brutally honest and truthful.

3.) WHAT are you willing to do to make this a reality for you?

4.) WHAT things are you NOT willing to do?

5.) HOW will you feel when this is accomplished?

6. ) Do you KNOW the price to pay?

7.) Are you willing to pay the price?

Lastly write a truth diary. List all the thing in your life that you know are not moving you towards your goal(s) and in fact are hindering you. As well get rid of the get-out-of-jail-free cards and just stick with it, don’t give yourself and out. Tell as many people as you can (obviously be selective of the ones you tell as some will just discourage and drain you) as this will help as if you know that others know about it you won't as easily be able to back out of it.

In the area of health and fitness, Dax talks about the biggest mistake people make is being inconsistent in reaching their goals. So if your goal is to lose 120 pounds, be very specific and answer the questions above. For question two really peel away the layers of WHY you want it. The deeper you get to the core reason the more committed and CONSISTENT you will be in working towards it.

Whatever your goal is find some to make it a reality. If its losing weight, find a trainer to put together a program for you and to coach you along the way particularly if you are doing it on your own. If its business find those in your area of business who have had success and glean from them as much as you can and if possible find someone to mentor you. If its being a better mom or dad read as many good books as you can and talk with mom and dads who have had success. Whatever the goal find someone to help make it a reality.

Remember this when you are working toward your goal(s): In Consistency Lies the Power!
