Mike’s Message: Getting Aligned with Your Goals

We all have goals set out for us, whether we choose to believe that is another story.  We have goals in mind each day; What we want to accomplish, how we want to treat ourselves & others, etc.  You may not write these goals down or necessarily keep them on the forefront, but they are still there daily.

We also consciously make long[er] term goals. Most often surrounding our finances, health and relationships.  Maybe even all 3? I admit, sometimes I can find myself on cruise control, but that doesn’t mean I don’t have an end goal in mind.  You may have experience this as well.

In regards to health and making goals, sharing goals with co-workers, friends, family and coaches is vital.  You have put your goals out there for the universe to hear. Yes, that offers room for judgement to be made, but what you want for yourself should always top the outside opinions you may hear.

As simple as this may sound, the key to goal-setting is sticking to your plan. Don’t give yourself a plan B. Set it, do it and love it!

For example, we have all known a talker; somebody who has big dreams about “what they are going to do” but fails to put the work in to achieve success.  The talker often causes us to instinctively make a judgement call on the validity of each claim they make.   Don’t be that “talker” when it comes to your state of health.

I believe that all humans can accomplish anything they put their mind to. If you put all of your focus and efforts into accomplishing something, I know you will find happiness at the end of the journey. But it will be just that; A journey. And you have to enjoy the journey in order to really reap the benefits of the final destination.

If you want to lose weight, do you think you “I eat pretty good” diet is going to help you lose weight? Do you think your “I try to take the stairs at the office” workouts are going to help you lose weight? That may be your starting point, because everyone starts the journey on a different level, but you have to advance to the next level – and quickly – to tackle your goals.

We control our destiny and our decisions.  You hold the keys and can make your life change, if you really want it. HERE are some great goal-setting tips that I think everyone can benefit from!

I believe in you, believe in yourself and you can defeat your giants!
