Before you decide on a goal you need to ask yourself these important questions before you start. . .
- What is the desire behind the goal and how important is it to you?
- Are you able to achieve it and how?
- What is the reason you want to achieve it?
- How ready and confident to commit yourself to the goal?
Once you have answered these questions then you can put together an action plan.
I normally recommend sub goals, these are preparing you for the bigger goal. Break it down to daily, weekly, monthly and yearly sub goals. A major goal will have two stages short term 3 months and long term 12 months or more to check in for maintenance. Also look at the negatives what may be a barrier, situations out of your control or in your control, also non support networks. These are things you may come across that set you back so you need a strategy in place to overcome any barriers. Reduce the relapse before it happens, make a list of your support network to have accountability and support. The more you achieve your sub goals the easier it will be to achieve your bigger goal. . . .
