Do you have an ambitious goal for 2021 that at the moment may feel daunting and maybe even impossible? Here’s a simple 3 step goal setting process to help you achieve your life changing goal.

Create Goals For Your Life

Most people don’t create goals for their life, which is interesting given that we typically plan for most of the endeavors we take on. We don’t go on a road trip without planning the route, deciding where to stay and what to pack. We recently finished renovating our bathroom which required major planning from beginning to end. I don’t believe anyone would start a major renovation without having a plan.

Write your goals down daily

Despite the power of goal setting only 3% of the population set goals for themselves and only 1% write their goals down. Gail Matthews, a psychology professor at Dominican University of California, found that a person is 42% more likely to achieve their goals and dreams simply by writing them down on a daily basis.

I know how much we are all looking forward to saying goodbye to 2020 and welcoming in a new year and new possibilities. 🎉 Before this year ends though, I would like to tell you about my goal setting ritual and I invite you to join me in doing the same. It’s a process to help you set smart goals and get the most from the new year. Not only will you learn a lot about yourself, but following these 3 simple steps will help you create long-term goals that won’t have you giving up when the going gets tough.
