Success And Affirmations For Setting Goals
It’s known in the database design world that the best place to start is with the desired outcome. Once you know what you want, it’s much easier to take the steps needed to achieve that outcome, and leave out anything that is not needed for completing the task.
This same idea can be applied to anything you want to create in your life. If you have a clear idea of the outcome you want, it will be much easier to plan the steps needed to achieve that goal.
Here are a few considerations when it comes down to success and affirmations for setting goals:
Tips for Successful Goal Setting
- Be alert to the mental quicksand traps created by thoughts that give the power to others. There are certainly parts of achieving your goal that are not within your hands, but so much is under your control. Focus on building your confidence, make room for achieving your goal and everything that comes along with achieving your goal.
- Try creating a vision board for your goal. What’s that? It’s a visual representation of your goal, and what it will mean to you to achieve it. Find or make images of what your life will be when you achieve your goal. The secret to vision boards is to include emotions: happiness, a feeling of success, financial gain, peace of mind, whatever it is you want in your hands when the goal is achieved.
- When it comes to setting goals, not everything needs to be locked in stone, except for perhaps one thing: your sense of accomplishment, your self-satisfaction. Practice these every day. At the end of your work day give yourself credit for what you’ve accomplished. Before you “call it a day” take a moment of satisfaction for what you’ve liked about the day. Even a tough day can contain a fragment you can grasp on to, things like commitment, holding it together, supporting others, etc.
That last one is a big part of adopting a goal-success pattern in your life. There has to be both a time and a place for achievement, not a carrot forever dangling on a stick. Make success a part of your everyday life. Every achievement will strengthen those mental and emotional muscles, making it more the “norm” in your everyday life.
