The Secret to Making and Keeping Goals

Write + Read + Action GoalsHow to make 2016 your best year yet

I love the energy of the New Year. It gives us all a fresh start, a chance to review our lives and look to the future with hope. If you’ve had a relaxing holiday, you’ll feel ready to make some plans for the year ahead. It’s a great time to commit to healthy lifestyle choices, such as losing weight, quitting smoking, drinking less alcohol, saving money for a holiday or even buying a pushbike. Whatever you want to do, you must take action towards making it happen!
However, there’s a problem. New Year’s Resolutions are notorious for being broken at the first challenge. Unless our goals are specific and we are clear about our purpose, we lose momentum and give up. By the end of the January, we find ourselves feeling even worse. Because our goals weren’t specific enough, we judge ourselves harshly for our lack of achievement. It’s not at all fun.
What gets in our way is fear. The self doubt, a lack of resources, thinking that there’s no time: there’s always a reason to quit if we listen to our fear. Fear is trying to protect us from danger because we are wired to pick up all the information around us. We are always on alert, and that can interfere with our ability to be confident in the face of challenges.
If, on the other hand, we make plans that align with our values, it is easier to face our fears with courage and achieve a great deal. Read on if you want to find out how to successfully achieve our goals by using a really simple technique.
First of all, when making a list of goals think about the people and things that you love to surround yourself with as well as the activities that you really enjoy. These can give you clues about making healthy and empowering choices for the year ahead. You might consider meditating every morning, taking a holiday to somewhere you haven’t been before, starting a new fitness routine or finding a new job. Whatever you choose to have on your list of goals must have significance for you. You need to really desire it. It has to be important enough to motivate you into action.
Once you’ve seriously committed to your goals, the next step is to focus on making them happen. This is the fun part. It is in itself a simple process, but having the commitment to work on it daily is the key that separates the achievers from the procrastinators. Everything depends on how much to want to achieve your goal. In other words, it’s up to you. If you take action you will reap the results.
So, here is the technique:
The secret to making goals and achieving them is to
(1) WRITE them down and then
(2) READ them out loud every day and most importantly
(3) take ACTION every day.
Our goals are achievable when we use this 3 step formula.
