FEEL YOUR WAY TO THE FINISH LINE

You’ve set a goal. Check. 

You’ve written it down. Check.

You’ve told other people about your plans to make yourself accountable. Check.

You’re visualizing how you’ll feel when you achieve your goal. Check.

You’ve done all the goal setting strategies. Check. Check. Check.

 

And you still aren’t working toward your goal… 

 

Try this. Work back from the goal or result you want by asking yourself:

 

What is my goal?

 

My goal is to complete writing my online course. 

 

What action do I need to take to complete this goal?

 

I need to produce a module a week. 

 

What feeling do I need to generate this action?

 

I need to generate the feeling of perseverance.

 

What thoughts will produce the feeling of perseverance?

 

Small steps move me forward. Slow and steady wins the day.

 

Working back to the thoughts you need to think is a great goal strategy because your thoughts generate your feelings that produce your actions that are responsible for completing your goals.
