The SMART goal setting is a great tool. I love setting small goals with a long term goal at the end. The small goals really help me reach the bigger prize.

I think of it as a training plan. Most successful athletes and others have a training plan with small goals and larger goals and a timetable.

This is so true Krys! Both short-term and long-term goals give a person something to aim for, which is so important when you are attempting to make a change. Thank you for sharing this very important concept!

Borrowed from a wise friend:

Why you must set a goal to get to where you want to be!

You can't go anywhere without a goal... When there's no purpose there's no interest... without interest there's no ambition... and without ambition you have nothing!

I guess you could become an Olympic couch potato. Picture this... The Olympic theme playing in the background, your coach rubbing your shoulders, Remote control ready ...and set... The thumb serves a massive volley on the remote control and in record time... you've changed the channel!

A life without purpose is like having a television with only 2 channels... you know there could be so much more but you're content with the 2 channels because you have no set plans to change your life. This is where cable and internet come in... Now you have lots to do! The same thing applies to life! You have to have something to do or you'll loose interest in life!

This is how goals work for you. Goals are dreams that when written down act as the starting place to where you want to go The purpose of a goal is to focus your attention. You'll formulate a plan of attack. You'll know exactly where you want to end up and your plan then will be put into place! Your mind will reach toward achievement only when it has a goal.

There are no achievements without goals. You won't know what to do next, you'll get confused because you won't know what to do! You'll end up returning to the place we all know best... Comfort land... the place where we go to for comfort and security... This place has comfort food, snacks, chips, dip, pop, chocolate, etc etc... and the reason is because we didn't plan our next steps towards... you guessed it... A Goal!

Now is the time to establish a goal worth working for. Your goal will keep you going in tough times, good times, all times because the goal keeps you on track! It gives you something to concentrate on and it keeps you headed in the right direction! A goal keeps our on course and the goal is designed to always have something ahead of you. Continuously visualize your next step. Keep moving after you achieve your goal and set another.

Your small steps will keep guiding you towards your goals! It gives your life purpose! It will keep you on the move...

Great News... Now you'll know what you want to do to better your life... You'll find a goal worth pursuing and you'll put those small steps to work for you and find your goals! Isn't it wonderful!

All you had to do was to give up being an Olympic couch potato!...

On to bigger, better things... I knew that you could do it! Your coach said you have great potential!... I knew it all along!


Have a great week... emoticon emoticon
