6 Steps To Setting A Goal


And Achieving It

How to be a goal getter.

We all want to succeed and better ourselves but some of us fail time after time. Setting up goals to work towards is a way to help us on track and achieve success. In this article I would like to discuss the process of how goals can be reached.

Eating and exercising regularly is not something everyone sees as a fun thing to do everyday and most people find it hard to stay motivated and on track. With this being said, the people who have a goal set in place whether it be a holiday coming up or a wedding etc. always find it easier and more manageable to succeed. The people who are just trying to lose weight or eat better but with no goal lack motivation and find it a lot more difficult.

The process

Step 1: Define the overall goal

This step seems simple enough but it comes with its challenges. Nothing can be achieved without something to work towards, but a goal that is too big can be disheartening. Creating a goal that is hard yet achievable is a good start. You will need to decide on what the end result will look like and how you will know once you have achieved the goal.

Step 2: Setting up milestones

This step is where you will decide on the milestone to be achieved on the path to the goal. These milestones are of utmost importance as with each milestone achieved, you are a step closer to the final product. This can be done by setting up a plan of action with timelines or achievements.

Step 3: Motivation

We all need some motivation every now and then to give us that boost to carry on. Using pictures or notes for example a picture of someone who you want to aspire to, or a note saying “you can do this” is a reminder to keep on going. Websites such as CutAndJacked.com have tons of motivational pictures and videos that are great for that pre-work out pump or to get the day started with in a good mind frame. Many people take before photos as a reminder of how far they have come and as a way to monitor the changes they have made. A great way to stay motivated is by including friends and family. They can join you on achieving your goal by understanding your goal and by simply giving you a push every now and then.

Step 4: A timetable

This has been mentioned above but setting up a timeframe for example a “12 week plan” for yourself is a good idea. Create a day to day schedule of what you must eat and what days you must exercise is a constant reminder of what must be done in order to achieve your goal. Putting this in a visible place is a must and reading it over before you sleep and when you wake up will automatically put you in the right frame of mind for what must be done.

Step 5: Nutrition

Once the meal plan has been decided a shopping list and prepared meals are essential. Going to the shop and buying your weeks’ worth of foods will put you in a great position to stay on track. The biggest culprit of sliding off the eating plan is a lack of preparation. If you take with you a pre-made meal and set it aside for lunch then you have no room for error, however taking no food with you and being starving with only a convenience store or a fast food chain nearby is a disaster ready to happen. Remember preparation is key! In terms of weight loss goal or muscle gain, preparing a meal plan, a grocery list and exercising routine could be the most important step in your quest to achieve your results.

Step 6: Goal reached!

Once your journey has been reached it's time to pat yourself on the back and feel proud. It’s now time to enjoy the results and start thinking of the next goal to work towards. Success comes from reaching small goals all the time. Consistency is key.
