At Girls Knock Life, we know that goals are incredibly important, not just for your personal life but for your business and career too! The trouble with setting goals is that so many of us are not sure how to go about it and how to then keep driving towards it.
To help with this we have put together our guide on how women can set a goal and then ACTUALLY manage to achieve it, sometimes much quicker than you might realize!
Never set one HUGE goal. Break it down instead
One of the worst things that you can do is to set yourself an absolutely mammoth goal for the long term, without a short term aim. Long term, bigger goals are wonderful to have, but to really increase your chances of getting there and not giving up, you are going to need to break that goal down into smaller chunks that will act as milestones, while still contributing to the bigger picture.
Celebrate the achievements no matter how small they may seem
There are plenty of us that don’t find it easy to celebrate our own achievement. However, when it comes to goal setting, this is an incredibly important part of the process. If you have worked hard to get somewhere, then you should give yourself a pat on the back! This simple thing will keep you motivated towards the end goal and also make you feel great too!
Remind yourself why the goal is important
It can be all too easy to lose sight of your aim. Particularly if it is quite far into the future! Which means you need to take the time and effort to remind yourself why your goal is important. It could be how it is going to help you with your career, the impact it will have for your family and of course the benefit it will have to you, anything that can help you to keep driving forward!
Accept support from those around you
There is nothing harder than trying to reach a goal without any support. Support can come from a variety of places; your friends, your family and your co-workers. It isn’t always easy to accept this support and help, particularly if you are trying your best to do things alone. But believe us when we say that having someone there to act as a cheerleader and help you get where you want to be, is going to make it a whole lot easier in the long run!
As you can see, there are a variety of ways to help you reach your goals and get exactly where you want to be. All it takes is some careful consideration, a lot of passion and an equal amount of motivation too! In no time at all you will be one step closer to your goal and knocking life!
