We have a bright new year ahead of us! Have you set goals? Any new year resolutions?
Many of these resolutions don't last, and far from all goals that are set, are reached.
Let's look at how you can increase your ability to reach the goals you have set.
For now I will assume you have set the goal to train more this year.
Write down what your life would be like in an ideal world.
If you could have, do and feel everything you wanted, what would your life be like?
Make sure your 2019 goal is connected to this vision.
Will achieving your 2019 goal move you towards your vision? Is training more related to the vision of your life? If not, consider another goal, or a re-phrasing of your goal.
Next, make sure your goal is connected to who you are.
Who are you? You are a person who takes on several different roles in your life. Like being a child, a parent, a spouse, a friend, a colleague...
Choose the role that is related to the goal you have chosen.
Write down what your mission is for this role; what your reason for being is.
Make sure your 2019 goal is connected to your role and your mission.
Let me give you an example.
My husband and I have several visions for our lives. One of them is:
Happy, Healthy, Loving, Family.
Two of the related roles are Parents and Lovers.
Our mission for Parents is
Providing Love, Security and Guidance.
Our mission as Lovers is:
Side by side through good times and bad
Love and attraction forever.
If I set a health goal with all the above in mind, I will be a lot more likely to achieve the goal than if I just set an isolated goal like "I will train more 2019".
Connect your goals to your vision and your mission and you will achieve them.
