First, write your goal down. By writing your goal down you are making it real and permanent;Two, share your goal with a friend or family member. When you share your goal, you are making yourself accountable because someone else now knows what you were planning;
Three, set a plan on how you can achieve your goal. This is important because it will show you that your goal can become reality and it will give you the blue print on how to achieve your goal.
Four, set bench marks along the way. These are smaller goals that let you know you are on the right path. Setting benchmarks allows you to gauge your success and gives you small wins along the way that will help you stay committed to your goal.
Finally, set a date by when you want to complete your goal. Setting a date will help prevent you from ignoring your goal as there will be a ticking time clock between you and failure. This can help you both stay motivated and on track.
Whatever your goal whether physical, professional, legal or romantic just make sure to follow these steps and to follow through. We can all achieve great things through hard work, perseverance and knowledge.
