Goals are dreams with deadlines
Setting goals is a MUST to achieve what you want in life.
Here are the steps-
Step 1. Know your outcome.
“If you don’t know where you are going, you wont know when you get there”
You need to become very clear on the specific outcome you desire.
Don’t use negative language such as “I don’t want to be overweight” or intangible outcomes such as “I want to look better.”
You NEED to be very specific with your goal outcome, it must be measurable and contain a timeframe.
Your goal should be stated in the positive. i.e. “on the 31th March 2012, I will weigh 60KG.”
Step 2. Create Alignment
To attract the right circumstances, ensure that your goal is congruent with your values, beliefs and self identity.
If there is a misalignment and you really want to achieve your goal, then you need to make adjustments to these beliefs or values.
And yes this is possible!
For example, if your goal is to weigh 60KG in 12 weeks, yet you believe that it takes at least 6 months to lose that much weight, then you have a misalignment.
So you need to change this limiting belief. One simple approach is to seek out lots of evidence where people have lost weight healthily within this timeframe, research all you can on what foods they eat, what exercise they undertake and get very clear on how this is achievable. Faced with overwhelming positive evidence you can then reassess your old belief.
Alignment of your energy is also key, you need to clearly experience, with all your senses how you will feel when you achieve your goal, what does it look and feel like and what emotions do you carry with you in this state.
This enhanced emotional state is the basis for you commencing the change. Use this energy to propel you towards your goal.
By aligning your goals with your self identity, values, beliefs, thoughts and actions, you are ensuring that all parts are functioning to support the attainment of your goal.
It is like a team of rowers all in a long rowboat. In order to get where they are going efficiently, they must all row in the same direction, in harmony and unison.

Step 3. Take Action
Wishing for something alone will not ensure your outcome.
Action is what brings thoughts, emotions and beliefs into reality.
The first two steps help to transform your actions into something exciting, enjoyable and full of energy. Enthusiastically striving towards actions that are aligned with your joy and your goal.
Ideally, you will continue to modify your actions to ensure you are aligned and congruent with your goal.
Each day you are presented with choices. Ask yourself if the choice is aligned with where you want to go. Does it bring me closer or further away from my goal?
Take consistent and constant action in the right direction.
So there you have the three steps to achieving your Goals.
