Let's talk about goal setting.
Goals are the pathway to the garden of abundance.
It's true! When we set goals for ourselves, we're more likely to get what it is we want. I'm setting goals right now to become more fit. I write them down, make vision boards, imagine the end result. These can all be a part of goal setting and achieving your dreams.
What is it that you want to do? Change careers? Write a book? Lose 10 pounds? Learn French? Clean out your closet? These are all totally achievable and much easier to accomplish when you put them in goal form.
I love Sark's micro-movement technique; it's especially helpful for those of us who are a bit on the lazy side (*raises hand*). Even the dullest of goals can get accomplished by setting up tiny, tiny tasks. Need to clean out the fridge, but dread every moment of it? Create your tiny (5 minute) goals and take it one step at a time. Your goal list might start with "9 a.m. -open fridge." After that, you can choose to take the next step or wait for the allotted time. "9:05 a.m. - take out one expired item and throw away." Easy! It works for the really big goals too. It might take a bit longer, but it'll get done!
If micro-movements aren't the best way for you, you can always have a bigger picture goal list:
In 3 months I want to...
and then break it down to smaller goals. What can you do now?
In 8 weeks I want to have lost a few inches and toned up. What can I do now?
*follow the Tone It Up nutrition & fitness plan
*work out twice a day
*only eat lean, green, and clean foods
I can break it down even further...
*Week 1: follow the 5 day slim down menu
*week 2: start the regular nutrition plan and workout guide
And even further!
You get the picture :)
Our big, and even little dreams can seem so overwhelming when we look at them without a guide, but break them down, put one foot in front of the other, and you'll be opening the gate to your abundant life in no time.
