5 Tools Every Successful Person Uses To Dominate Their Competition

(This post is part of a three-post series on setting better New Years Resolutions. For part one: click here.)

As you may remember, if you read our first blog post, setting New Years Resolutions like everyone else is a recipe for disaster. Studies say we’re going to fail within 30 days! That’s why we decided to set informed goals, instead.

How do you set great goals?

A goal by definition is the object of a person’s ambition or effort; an aim or desired result. But what makes a “goal” different (and better) than a “resolution” is that a goal gives us the why behind it. When we make choices to do something for a reason or desired result, then we have a why and we have a stronger tie to the things we choose to do. This increases our motivation and helps us stick to our goals in a way we could never stick to a resolution. Furthermore, we can always get back on track with a goal. While a Resolution is a “one strike, you’re out” commitment.

So now it’s time to set a goal.

5 Tips To Stick To Your Goals

  1. Start Goal Positively: It should be stated in the positive. For example: “I will choose whole foods to nourish my body,” instead of, “I won’t eat junk foods.”
  2. Maintain Your Goal: It should be able to be maintained by you. It should be something you can control. For example: “I want to have healthy choices when going to a restaurant.” That doesn’t work because you don’t make the menu. Instead, you can say, “I will choose restaurants that have healthy menu choices.” That keeps you in control of the goal.
  3. Define Success: It should define what success will be like on a sensory basis. For example: If your goal is to cook healthy foods every night, what will it sound like, feel like, taste like, and look like? Give yourself permission to imagine the day to day of living your goal.
  4. Know the Consequence of Failure: It should define what will happen if you don’t achieve it. You have to know what’s really at risk. For example: If your goal is to lose weight through diet and exercise you would want to evaluate what happens if you do and do not achieve it. If you do achieve it, you will feel healthier and be able to go for a run with your dogs. If you don’t achieve it you will not be able to be active with your children. You may not be there to watch them graduate from college…you might not be able to dance with them at their wedding…you may not be able to play with your grandchildren as they grow up.
  5. How Success Fits With Your Life: You should evaluate how your goal will fit into your life. Ask yourself not only how you will benefit, but ask yourself how your better health will affect others. Will it improve your current life and everyone’s life around you? Will you be able to volunteer more? Will you be able to travel more and share your experiences with your friends and family? If the goal is good and worth achieving, then it will positively impact everyone in your life, including you.

These five guidelines for developing goals that stick can help you change your life for the better. They have proven themselves to help you lose weight and get in better shape.

With these goals, the last step is to take action and make them happen in your life. By taking action you can stick to, and by getting the support you need to follow through, is how you succeed. You can read more about that here.
