Firstly HAPPY NEW YEAR. I mean we all have had a character-building 2020 and I have to admit if anything we have to be proud of what we have achieved for the last 12 months. No one could have predicted it but let’s start this year with a better plan! Goal digging for 2021 – are you ready?!
Now, this is a mundane task for anyone who is unmotivated/afraid of hard work and we have all met unmotivated people who drag us down or stop us from doing the best we can… none of that should be accepted in 2021! You owe it to yourself to be the best version of yourself!
We have made life a little easier as well… you can now download the toolkits in online formats and printable formats! HOW F*CKING EXCITING!!!
So let’s get to it!
How to set goals for 2021
To succeed, you need to have a goal and plan but more specifically a smart plan! I don’t go through this as such in detail in the Goal Digging Toolkit however, it is designed to help you keep it smart subconsciously.
Now smart planning looks boring and mundane but it is what professionals will use when working with people who are trying to achieve a goal. So let’s try it – it may or may not be for you and that’s ok along as you at least try.
Don’t be vague – you need your goal to be so transparent that the universe knows exactly what you want.
vague – I want to lose weight
specific – I want to lose 5kg by June 2021 through healthy eating and regular exercise at the gym.
See the difference? In all honesty, it’s like What, How, When and you could even add Why.
So this is a little different – how will you know if you’ve achieved it?
Carrying on from the above example of weight-loss you will know if you have achieved it when you step on the scale and realise you are 5kg less than you were. Pretty measurable right?
So this is about being able to achieve what you want to achieve – I repeat in the toolkit ‘small achievable steps’ because let’s be honest when you are ticking off the step/goals your get a bit of a confidence boost and want to carry on smashing your goals don’t you.
However, let’s be realistic. going back to the above example of weight loss – if I said I want to lose 5kg in the next 30days and I step on the scales on day 29 and see I haven’t achieved that, I’m going to give up aren’t I? this is both because the goal was unachievable and not achieving the desired result would make us more likely to give up.
The goals have to be doable – a little like explained above – 5kg in 30 days maybe a little unrealistic. Maybe half a kg a week maybe a little easier and more realistic.
Time is an interesting one – in the toolkit I have broke the year into 12 months then the month into days and then a weekly break down… although we will monitor over time its also about small achievable steps over small periods of time
If you’re stuck on getting started maybe you need to shift your mindset to be more positive – have a read on overcoming negativity
also, a quick quote –
Everyone has trauma. In order to become the best version of ourselves and manifest our dreams, hopeful thinking isn’t enough, Bryant says. You must first heal from the scars of past trauma and relearn healthier ways to cope with inevitable future trauma.Cheyenne Bryant
