Actions steps to reaching your goal

If we just set goals, we usually start off real excited and stay that way for a few weeks and then the excitement starts to fade and it is replaced with frustration.
We have to remember for us to accomplish a goal we need to do some prep work.
So, if you gave up on your New Year resolutions start again with your goals for February but this time make sure you did the prep work first.

1. Before you even make your first move towards accomplishing your goal, make sure you changed your belief. You can’t make a change like lose weight, quit smoking, etc without changing the belief behind it first. If you go on a diet or exercise plan, but still believe you’re overweight and not worthy of better then nothing will change. Even if you lose the weight but not the belief you won’t feel happy. I have had clients who have lost 30-50 pounds but felt like a overweight person trapped in a thin body and struggled to keep the healthy weight and feel good.

2. Change your daily routine – does your routine equal success. We need to have daily habits that make us healthy emotionally and physically. My daily routine consists of:
Gratitude checks
What does your daily success routine look like?

3. Support system – are you surrounded by toxic people? Do you have a support system? A few people who cheer you on? We accomplish more when we have support. If you’re surrounded by toxic people, it makes the journey tougher.

4. Are your goals really yours? Make sure what your trying to accomplish is your goal and yours only? Ask yourself why you want to accomplish this goal? What does it mean to you? Does it fit your values system?
We can’t accomplish goals successfully and feel happy if they aren’t our goals so make sure your not accomplishing goals that are your parents, spouse, society’s.

5. Are your goals clearly defined? What do you want? Why? What will it look like when you accomplish it? How will you feel? How will it affect others?
