Here’s a quick little GIF guide to setting goals from A to Z. Daily words of wisdom to inspire and motivate you to take action.

Action

In order to move forward you need to take action. Whether it’s a giant leap or a tiny step forward, take action.

 

Plan B

When working towards something new, it can be hard to know the best way to achieve it. If you find it doesn’t work, craft a Plan B.

 

Cruise

If want to do things a little differently today, go for it! Following your original plan to a T can get a little stale.

 

Daily

Work on your goal every single day. Whether its 2 minutes or 2 hours – it all adds up in the end.

 

Early

Struggling to find the time for your goal? Consider waking up a few minutes earlier to take the pressure of your daily routine.

 

Failure

By acknowledging that failure is a part of life and bound to happen, makes it a lot easier to move past it when it happens.

 

Gratitude

Just like Ariana in ‘thank u, next’, practice gratitude daily by thinking “I’m so lucky to…”, “I am so thankful for…”

 

Hurdles

Make a plan for what you’ll do when a hurdle crops up. Or if it’s a new hurdle, think about how you’ll deal with it and take note for next time.

 

Imagine

Visualise the end goal. What would your life look like if you achieved your goal? How would today look?

 

Journey

Know that this is your unique path to achieving the life you want. Other’s may do it differently, but this is yours. Own it.

 

Kindness

Show yourself kindness when you get things wrong. Stuffing up along the way is to be expected. So don’t beat yourself up. Move past it and carry on.

 

Locus of Control

Who takes responsibility for what happens in your life? If it’s you, you have an internal locus of control. If you blame your misfortune and attribute your good luck to someone or something else, you have an external locus of control.

 

Metric

Is your goal measurable? Choose a metric to measure it by. It might be time, weight, distance, amount, or value.

 

Notice

Recognise the changes you’ve gone through since Day 1. Do you feel any different? What compliments have you heard from others?

 

Openness

Be open to doing things differently. Opportunities or hurdles will crop up along the way, work with them. Don’t worry about straying from your original plan.

 

Perception

How successful you are depends on your motivation. If you focus on what you have achieved, rather than what you haven’t, you’ll feel like you’re really making waves.

 

Quality

Your goal should add to your quality of life. Does yours?

 

Review

Remember to review your progress. Take a look at how much has changed since you first began your journey.

 

Struggles

Struggling to reach your goal? Break it down into bite sized pieces. It’s 110% ok to start super small.

 

Targets

Set yourself daily, weekly, and monthly targets to keep you on track.

 

Unstuck

Feeling stuck? Revisit your WHY. What made you want to work towards this goal in the first place? Rekindle those old flames of motivation.

 

Vague

A clear cut end goal is much easier to work towards rather than a vague goal. Take a few minutes to clarify your goal.

 

When

Rather than thinking “I want to be debt free”, think about WHEN you’d like to reach that. Give yourself a realistic deadline.

 

Xoxoxo

Look after yourself. You are your biggest supporter. If you’re not there for you, who will be?

 

Yearly

Take stock every year to acknowledge how much you’ve grown since last year. Not where you want to be? Make a plan for this time next year.

 

Zigzag

The journey from Day 1 to your end goal isn’t a straight line. It will zig and zag. It’s ok, just move with it.
