Chart Out Your Goals carefully and pursue these with precision.
1. Set your goals high so that you always have something to live for!
In order to win you need to set your goals. You should know what actually you are trying to achieve. But if your goals or not high for which you have to stretch yourself to achieve, your exercise, your efforts me and in futility. So it is necessary for you to carefully design your goals. I don’t say that it should be such which are not realistic, but it should also not be easily reachable because then you will not make sufficient efforts which are required to become a winner.
A goal without a plan is just a wish. So there for which ever goal or goals you have written you must chart out a detailed plan to achieve the same which are required to become a winner.
A goal without a plan is just a wish. So therefore reachable goal or goals you have written you must sort out a detailed plan to achieve. Break large, vague goals down into achievable parts. For example, if your goal is to “win at life,” break that down into smaller goals, such as “get a job I love” “finish my education” “build meaningful relationships” “feel good about myself.
2. How to break a goal into actionable steps?
First, break each goal into smaller ones. Breaking your goals down allows you to track your progress. For instance, the goal “feel good about myself” could be broken down into sub-goals such as “build a positive self-image” “exercise” “be well rested” and “work through negative feelings.”
Break those goals down again into actionable steps. For instance, “be well rested” can be broken down into “1. Start winding down at 8:30.” “2. Be ready for bed by 10 every night.” “3. Wake up at 7:30am and get immediately out of bed.”
Identify the steps that are most difficult. For instance, it may be easy for you to wind down and get into bed at the same time every night, but difficult to pop right out of bed in the morning.
3. Unless you make the goals time bound, the goals don’t have any significance.
Get organized and create an achievement schedule for yourself. Have daily goals, weekly goals, monthly goals, and yearly goals. Check in regularly to make sure you are achieving them all. If you don’t achieve all your goals one week, try again the next.
4. Check your goals for realism.
Make sure your goals are actually achievable. You can’t win at an impossible game. If a goal can be broken down into actionable steps, it is probably realistic. Make sure your time frame is also realistic. Can everything you want to achieve be achieved in the time you envision? Check your progress as you go, and revise your schedule until the pace of improvement is reasonable.
5. Set yourself up for success with mental strength to visualize it.
Use the wild power of optimism and the cold, shrewd wisdom of pessimism together by practicing mental contrasting. Take a few minutes to imagine yourself winning at your goal. Imagine every detail of perfect success: how it feels, what it looks like, how everyone will react. Then turn it around entirely. Imagine each and every possible roadblock you might come up against.
6. Never compare with others. Compete with yourself.
Compete with yourself as well as with others. When you have achieved a goal, set your next goal higher. For instance, if you got all A’s and B’s one semester, set the goal to get all A’s the semester that follows. Take time to celebrate each goal as you achieve it, but avoid complacency.
7. Turn negative feelings into motivation.
If you notice yourself feeling jealous or unsuccessful, that’s a sign that you’re ready to set a new goal. Identify the cause of the negative feeling, and set a goal that will catapult you beyond it. For instance, if you are jealous of your neighbor’s new car, set goals for earning or saving more money so that you can buy a car you like.
You may end up changing your mind about the car once you have achieved your goal. The satisfaction you get from setting a goal and achieving it will be greater than any satisfaction you can get from showing up someone else.
8. Monitor your actions on daily basis.
It’s necessary to keep track of your work in respect of goals and also the results that are coming through your efforts. When you are having a constant watch you will find that certain times you have ignored some small details which you should not do in your future actions. In this manner if you follow your efforts the results will be much above your expectation. And that is what is required to become a winner.
