HAVE YOU SET YOUR GOALS UP FOR SUCCESS?
Updated: Feb 19, 2020
The champers has been drunk, the Christmas decorations are away, the gifts have been exchanged. It’s official, we've entered a new year.
Is this your year? Is this THE year? Is this the year you finally stop playing it safe? Is this the year you smash your goals? Is this the year you get the physique you want?
More than half of people failed at their New Year’s Resolution just 3 months into the new year. But you? You’re gonna be better than that.
Goals are easy to make, but tough to achieve. That’s why I’m here to help you. IN this week’s podcast I talk you through setting your goals up for success in 2020. To make sure you aren’t just part of another statistic.
In my opinion these are the 3 common mistakes people make when setting goals for themselves:
Setting too many goals- girl, you can do anything but you can’t do everything. You’ll end up giving up some of your goals which can leave you feeling disheartened or even worse give up on all your goals completely.
Not setting specific goals- I am going to go to the gym more. Well that’s great but how do you know if you achieved it? More than what? I want to know how many times a week you are going to go to the gym.
Setting goals that contradict each other- I made this mistake this year. My goal was to step on stage for the WBFF but also to increase my deadlift strength (exponentially – I also set my goal too high). How am I going to hit significant personal bests when I spent over ¾ of the year in a calorie deficit not a surplus?
I’ve made all of these mistakes before. Many people have, you are not alone. But this year lets do it a little differently. Lets make sure you achieve them.
These are my tips for goal setting:
Be specific, put a number against each goal and a deadline date.
Only pick 1 or 2 goals for each of your categories (My categories are; personal development, fitness, financial, environmental
Use emotional connection- make sure you are passionate about your goals.
Tell someone about your goals for accountability
Make small choices each day that move you forwards towards your goal
Write your goals down and put them somewhere where you will see them regularly.
Break your annual goals down into quarterly goals or even monthly goals.
Achieving goals isn’t always easy. Its up to you and only you to achieve them. The choice is yours. And as always, I'm here to support you in 2020.
