Should You Have A Good, Better, Best Goal?

Jun 30, 2022

You may have heard of the good, better, best goal setting strategy where you set three different goals to achieve.  For example, if you want to lose weight by the end of the month.  Your good goal is five pounds, your better goal is seven pounds, and your best goal is to lose ten pounds by the end of the month.  Your goal is to lose weight but there is scale in which you can achieve that goal.  But, is this really the best goal setting strategy?

 

Three Winning Goals

If you achieved your good goal, you’d be happy with that result.  But, you’d feel even better if you achieved your better goal and over the moon excited if you achieved your best goal.  The idea is that you’d put forth the same amount of time and effort to achieve the goal, but you wouldn’t be upset if you just hit your good goal instead of your best goal.  Each goal is a winner to you.

 

Bigger Goals

How To Stop Comparing Your Success To Others

Jun 23, 2022

When you look around and see other people achieving success quickly, you think that you should too.  Yet, achieving your goals isn’t an overnight success.  In fact, the people who you think quickly achieved success actually took a long time in the making.  You’re just seeing the highlight reel.  Here is how to stop comparing your success to others.

 

Mindset

You might be thinking that success happens for others but not for you.  Don’t buy into that belief.  It only keeps you stuck in a fixed mindset without the possibility of believing that there is more for you and your life.  Success is more than possible for you.  It can happen.  You just have to keep working towards achieving your goals and never give up.

 

Not Failing

Don’t think that you’re a failure just because you haven’t achieved your goal as quickly as someone else.  It may take you longer to achieve your goal.  But,...

Baggage

Imagine you’re going on a car ride to achieve your goal.  You’re going to need to pack a few things to take on your trip.  Leave behind all your fears, worries, and doubts.  Those things can weigh down your car and get pretty heavy.  Lighten your load and let go of some of things you’ve been carrying around.  You don’t need these on the journey.  In fact, they will only hinder you and slow you down from reaching your goal.  Instead, only bring your essentials.  Such as, water, snacks, and a positive outlook with the determination that you will...

How To Overcome Your Negative Inner Critic

Jun 09, 2022

The negative inner critic in your mind starts getting loud when you’re trying to step outside your comfort zone.  It just wants to keep you safe.  But, that limits what you’re able to do.  It ultimately prevents you from achieving your goals and dreams in life.  Stop letting that negative voice paralyze you.  Here is how to overcome your negative inner critic.

 

Take Responsibility

First, acknowledge that the inner critic is you.  It’s not someone else.  It’s not an alter ego or a bad part of you.  It’s simply you.  When you recognize that this voice is truly yours, you have the power to change it.  The voice may have been formed by things that you’ve heard others say.  But, you have repeatedly told yourself these things which have made them your own.  By taking ownership of this inner critic, you are admitting that you’re 100% responsible for either believing or not believing...

You must create the thought of achieving your goal in your mind before it actually becomes your reality.  That first initial thought of what you want to achieve solidifies it as entirely possible.  But, often you get hung up in all the worries, doubts, and fears along the way that cause you to question your ability to achieve your goal.  Visualizing the point when you’ve achieved your goal is extremely powerful.  It creates that subtle knowing that your success is inevitable.  You will achieve your goal.  It’s going to happen.  Here is a quick six step visualization to help you achieve your goal.

 

Specific Goal

Think about the goal you want to achieve.  Make sure it’s specific enough so that you know when you’ll have achieved it.  Vague goals will only give you a vague visualization.  Ensure that your goal is tangible and includes measure.  Be specific and get clear on the exact goal you want to...
