Smart Goals for 2015: Get Your Year Going!
How to improve your life in one year…
2014 was a whirlwind! I traveled all over the world to Italy, China, Hawaii, Florida and Canada. My business grew exponentially and I was able to bring many people to new levels of success. By the end of the year I was ready to set more smart goals for myself and take my success to the next level.
I started my 2015 by setting smart goals in order to make this best year for my business and myself. I focused in on what didn’t work for me and what did. Are you wondering how to set smart goals for 2015? Do you want to know how to improve your life in one year? Here are 6 of my best tips for you!
One very important aspect to setting goals is being realistic. Whether it is losing weight or increasing profits for your business, setting smart goals means setting realistic goals. Set yourself up for success. If you want to lose weight, start with 5 or 10 pounds, not 30. You want to set your goal somewhere in between, that way it is a challenge, but not impossible. Set your big kahuna goal too – just give it a realistic timeframe.
2. Be specific.
Make specific goals for yourself. If you want to set smart goals for your business, write down exactly how you plan to achieve that. For example, if you want to add 20 new people to your mlm business, schedule out how many people you plan to get each week and day. Also come up with a game plan on how to acquire them. Maybe that means sending 10 text messages a day or 10 phone calls. Put all of this on a timeline with a deadline and check your achievements off as you go! I love to check things off a list. I know I am a bit of a geek about it.
3. Really commit yourself.
This is HUGE! You can’t put half your energy in and expect full results. I like to start my day off reading inspirational quotes from entrepreneurs and business leaders. Sometimes that little push keeps my commitment strong. And always ask yourself..”Do I want this as bad as the air I breathe?” What we really want, we go after.
4. Visualize yourself achieving the goal.
I once heard from a sports psychologist that one of the most important behaviors professional athletes had was visualizing success. Basketball players that constantly pictured themselves winning and ran through mental scenarios were much more successful. This applies to all of us! Picture yourself where you want to be everyday and success will follow. I do this often. It may sound corny, but it really works.
5. Be positive.
There will be times we fail to meet a deadline. Life gets in the way. Kids, pets, husbands wives, you name it, we all get distracted at times. The most important thing is not giving up when we have a set back. Always stay positive. Thinking negatively will just attract negativity! The ones that win are the ones that get back up and get back on track.
6. Reward yourself.
Treat yourself! When you reach a goal, no matter how big or small, give yourself a little reward because YOU DESERVE IT! Your reward could be a nice meal out or just taking a walk after a long day of working. This step definitely helps with the commitment step! 😉 I love to treat myself to a massage or a romantic dinner out with my husband when I achieve a goal.
So here’s to a successful and happy year full of smart goals. Now you know how to improve your life in just one year…pass it on!
It’s time to live your dreams!
