5 Strategies to Help You Achieve Your Goals

goals process Jun 18, 2021

 

One reason people fail when trying to accomplish something is that they think the results should be immediate. We have trained ourselves for instant gratification and if it doesn't happen now we are more inclined to give up. Some goals take time, and you will learn and grow from the experience. No matter what you want to accomplish, you can make it happen as long as you have the right strategies and stick with it long enough to see the results. Here are 5 strategies that can help you achieve your goals:

 

  1. Set SMART Goals

 

Setting smart goals will help you be more successful in accomplishing your goals. As you may have noticed, the uppercase lettering in the word above is there for emphasis. It is an acronym by which you can assess goals to see if they fit the requirements of being specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and have a designated timeframe for completion. Goals or tasks that fit these requirements have a higher probability of success....

The Process of Change

The Five Stages of Change

 

When going through changes in our personal, professional or business life we tend to go through this process in stages. What we have to keep in mind through the whole process is our end goals and our purpose for engaging in this change. One way we can power through each stage of change is by being aware of what is in store for us at each point. So let’s outline the 5 key stages in the process of change.

 

The first stage is… EXCITEMENT!!

This is where we are feeling really excited and enthusiastic about our decision to change and we are anticipating all of the positive results that the process of change is going to bring us. For example if you are considering buying a house you can’t wait to have to own space, to be on the property ladder and start to be paying your own mortgage instead of a stranger’s. This change is going to be awesome and you can’t wait, until…

The Power of Focus

life balance purpose May 23, 2021

I’ve worked with a lot of people who can find themselves extremely excited and motivated to progress in their business when presented with some of the concepts we discussed in my course. However a common issue they seem to run into consistently is not knowing where to start and not knowing what to focus on first. 

 

Let's talk about the magnifying glass. I remember growing up and using my magnifying glass to focus the sun onto a dry piece of wood and holding it until I saw smoke. If I had taken the magnifying glass and moved it around all sorts of surfaces I wouldn’t have seen much smoke. Similarly if I had focused the glass on something that didn’t react as well, I would’ve had to focus on it for much longer to see any results. It was when I was patient and held my focus over the surface that reacted best that I saw results. If there’s one thing we know about fires, it’s that they take a lot of effort to get started but once...

Writing a Vision and Mission Statement

goals purpose Apr 21, 2021

How clear is Your VISION and how are you writing Vision and Mission statements?

People can’t be Passionate and Inspired about a Vision they can’t see……that goes for all of us. Three Steps to Bring your Vision to Life

Step 1 of Writing Vision and Mission Statements is: DEFINE the Vision to get Clarity of something far away, we would call upon our trusty Telescope, as the view is significantly clearer than with the naked eye. This is in the context of creating a vision of at least 5 plus years.

I suggest you pull out the Telescope within and use it to create your IDEAL scene. Use it to look out to what the view will be like 5 years from now. Hold that telescope within up to your eye and look through the lens. At first the view is a little blurry. But as you start to turn the focusing dial your view becomes a little clearer. As you’re turning the dial to make the view clearer you’re creating a clear picture of what your business or life is is like....

Creating a Vision and Mission Statement

purpose Apr 14, 2021

Creating vision and mission statements is a great technique to help you get what you want out of life. Vision and mission statements can help you define and clarify your business goals and your personal life.

For example, in a business situation, you could have a Team meeting where everyone can contribute equally. You could ask your Team what strategies worked in the last six or 12 months and why. You could then share what you want to achieve with your team in the next six months and ask them for suggestions on how to go about it. This way, all Team members are involved in the discussion, and as long as you inspire them to share your vision, they will want to help you achieve your objectives.

In a personal situation, you may want to write down how you would picture your perfect day. What would you like to be doing three or six months from now? How would that make you feel? Be playful, creative and inspired when you write about your perfect day. Embrace the emotions your thoughts...

Abundance vs Self-Limiting Beliefs

purpose Mar 31, 2021

Ever since I started my journey on Personal Development, deliberately and on purpose, I was constantly reminded by those in the know that we need to embrace the concept of Abundance and have an abundant mentality. My interpretation of this subject of abundance is that there is more than enough of everything for everyone. There is an abundance of Food, Water, Love, Money, Opportunity and practically everything else you can think of. Someone once told me that if all the world's money were distributed equally amongst every living person, each would have over a Million Dollars. When I was growing up, I can recall comments that I had to work hard for money. Money is hard to get. We can’t afford that. Money didn’t grow on trees and all that stuff. Now I know several family members over the generations have had to deal with a range of different challenges that I haven't, and  I can totally...

Goal Setting Guide

Uncategorized Mar 19, 2021

When was the last time you set a goal and achieved it?

Success leaves clues, and when reflecting on your own experience or others' experience, you get the opportunity to create a system or a process to achieve your goal consistently.

Several years ago, I was introduced to a simple formula to achieve CONSISTENT Results. Think about the various businesses and organisations that you immediately think of as CONSISTENCY businesses. To help you out, think about the numerous Franchise Brands. Look at those businesses that have multiple sites, locations and outlets. There are hundreds in the food industry alone.

Now notice that whenever you visit them, you’ll notice they have the same branding, their shop layouts are similar, the ordering process is the same, the pricing, the products and services are all the same…they’re all providing a CONSISTENT product, service or experience…

Now, what does this have to do with a Goal Setting Guide, you might ask?

Goal Setting Strategy - iSmart Goals

goals Mar 12, 2021

If you want to achieve your goal, then using goal setting strategies can help you become successful. First, you have to ask yourself why is your goal so important to you? Your goal needs to be powerful enough to motivate you to achieve it. If it really doesn’t matter to you whether you achieve it or not, you’re doomed to fail.

You MUST be committed to achieving your goal. Otherwise, when the going gets tough, you won’t get going! You’ll put off the tasks that you need to undertake in order to accomplish your goal because it’s all too hard or you’re having problems in your life and you just don’t have the mental energy to deal with your goal at the moment.

Remember, a goal that is extremely important to you will allow you to power through all the objections you encounter on your way to reaching the pinnacle.

Another important tip for goal setting strategies is to only focus on a few goals at a time. If you have too many goals at once, you...

Managing Your Work Life Balance - How You Can Have It All

life balance Mar 02, 2021

In today’s world, managing work life balance can be tough if you don’t know what you’re doing. Work is such a large part of your life that it can seem easier to forgo the other areas such as recreation, spirituality and family, to name just a few.

But it’s important that you find enough time to enjoy all different aspects of your life, otherwise you can burn out.

The first thing you need to do is write down your Intentions. These are things that you want to turn into reality for the next week. Attending your daughter’s recital, going to church or taking care of your tax return are all Intentions. So make sure you write your Intentions down in your diary for a certain day and allow time for them. Intentions don’t have to be tasks, either. They can be as simple as wanting to Be Kind.

If you want to live your ideal life, first you have to plan it, then live it! This is key to managing work life balance. It’s important that you don’t put...
