This is the first in a series of posts to support you in successfully setting and achieving your goals in 2011. Return to this blog to read the next tips.
1. Know what you want not what you think you want, or what you think others think you should want, or not what you think you should want.
2. Think about your goal options: spend quiet undisturbed time with eyes closed thinking about options for a goal. If you had a goal this year, what would it be? What would truly support you as a goal this year? Questions such as, “What do I really want for myself this year” will help to prepare you for what follows. You’ll probably have lots of goal/options. Allow them to surface and spend time thinking about each one.
3. Screen the goal options: spend time with each option and notice what thoughts come to mind as you think about each goal/option. What would your life look like having achieved that goal? How would your life be different if you achieved that goal? Then notice how you would feel achieving this goal. What would you be telling yourself as you achieve that goal? What do you want to experience?
Example-Goal: To lose weight- 20 lbs. My life would be filled with more opportunities. I would take more risks. I would feel less self-conscious. I’d be more physically active and look better in my clothes and feel confident. I would feel very good about myself and I’d say, YAY, I did it! That would feel great.
