How to Achieve Goals – Steps to Success
You’ve come to this website because you are looking to get that flat stomach that you have always dreamed about.
A dream is a goal without legs. It is a wonderful thing to have, can be the guiding passion of your life, but unless you clarify it and give it the legs to move toward you, getting there is going to be very much a matter of luck. – Diana Robinson
It is important that you absorb the "How to Achieve Goals" quote above.
So how do you give your dream the necessary legs?
In order to transform you dream you have to embed the image and details in your head so that it becomes so clear to you that you can hardly tell whether or not it is a dream or a memory.
By doing this you will open up your subconscious to allow this new reality to manifest itself. With your subconscious open to this reality, it will help to put your life on autopilot while trying to accomplish your goals.
Is it really that easy?
“Anything in life worth having is worth working for.” Andrew Carnegie
Well the truth is it will not be easy. But if you follow the below steps a flat stomach may become your reality.
How to Achieve Goals – Steps to Follow
Establish a Realistic Goal
The first thing you will want to do is to write down your goal on paper. This step is very important because the simple act of writing it down will subconsciously hold you accountable to achieving this goal.
Be practical when creating your goal. You may even choose to break your dream into smaller manageable goals that will help to keep you motivated.
So before you set your goal to lose forty pounds, try setting a goal to lose the first five pounds to get the ball going.
Put Your Priorities in Order
Is watching that episode of American Idol more important than your interval training session? We are all pressed for time, but in order to accomplish your dreams you will have to make sacrifices.
Move up activities on your priority list that takes you a step closer to your goal.
Creating Your Workout Plan
In order to successfully accomplish your fitness goal, you will need a solid action plan in place that will keep you heading down the right track.
So in order to lose your first five pounds, you have to consistently burn more calories than you are eating. Your plan may outline your daily diet schedule in detail as well as your daily workout regimen.
The more detailed your plan is, the easier it will be to accomplish your goals. Think of each day as one step closer to achieving your goal of having that flat stomach you always dreamed about.
It is important that you put on your blinders and focus on each daily task and not on your overall fitness goal. Before you know it, you will have accomplished more than you ever imagined. This will be your fuel to keep you going.
Blueprints are essential, but if you never begin to build it is useless. After you put together your action plan the most important thing in accomplishing your goals will be to take action. Don’t worry if everything doesn’t go as planned at first. As long as you are taking a step towards your goal then you are fine. Tweak and refine each day until it does become routine.
Measure and Review
I mentioned to stay focused on each daily task, but in your action plan be sure to insert scheduled times to review and measure your progress. So you will only do this when it comes up in your action plan.
An example may be to schedule your review every two weeks. This is long enough for progress to be made but not too long that you lose motivation from not seeing actual results from your hard work.
At certain points you will start to feel your hard work paying off and you will not rely on numbers or statistics to tell you so. That feeling is priceless and it will also fuel your fire.
Losing that stubborn belly will be hard work, so it is important to treat yourself to something nice as you reach certain milestones.
This reward will depend on what makes you happy. For some this may be a nice outfit to show off your new figure and for others it may be a night out to your favorite restaurant.
I hope you found “How to Achieve Goals” helpful in your quest to getting rid of your stubborn belly and improving your overall health.
Remember, achieving your fitness goals will require a lifestyle change and not a permanent diet. If you are able to eat healthy 85-90% of the time you will be fine. Unless you are trying to become a fitness model this should work just fine for you.
