The most common reason for people not reaching their desired destination is … they don’t really know where they’re going. Seems kinda obvious right? The truth is, if you’ve been unsuccessful at attaining and sustaining your goals, it’s because you’ve probably never actually set clear, powerful and meaningful goals.
“But isn’t wanting to lose weight a goal?”
Kinda, but not really…
Imagine you wanted to leave your house and go visit a friend in the next town and all you had was the name of the street they lived on. No house number, or cross streets, or a point of reference, and absolutely no signs stating that you went too far.
You’d never get there right? You may come close, by accident. But arrive at your desired location; nope.
This is exactly what happens if you don’t set clear goals.
What do clear goals look like?
Here’s an example:
I want to be a size 6 and fit into my favorite jeans and feel comfortable and confident wearing them.
You see how specific and measurable it needs to be? You could easily try them on at the end of each week and see your progress.
Try setting your own SMART goals.
