Turning Goals Into Reality For 2020

If I could have a pound for every time someone has said "Where has 2019 gone?" I’d be rich. However, truth be known nothing has really changed other than what we’ve been focusing our time on.  We all have the same 24 hours in a day.  The secret is to utilise the time to make better choices thereby creating better outcomes.

I recently read a quote which said “Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit and wisdom is not putting the tomato into a fruit salad.”  Sounds simple enough but let’s look at it from another perspective.  Let’s say you’ve decided that you’re going to set some goals for 2020.  Hey, presto you’ve started. However, one of the must do components to successfully accomplishing your goals is to write them down.

Now, that’s a great first step and one could say that it’s mandatory. However, if that’s all you do, you’ve already failed.  Why?  Setting a goal is like choosing a destination on a map. Having the map is a great start however without a destination you’ll end up going nowhere.

Here are a few suggestions to help you on your way.

·      Use a system that works for you. A tried and tested method is the SMART system. Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant and Time Bound.
·      Accept that failure can happen and that disappointments are a part of life. This does not mean that you must accept failure, but accept that sometimes when you try something new, you may not succeed the first time. Don’t give up! 
·      Understand and accept that your life’s path is not the same as those pursuing similar goals as you. Your means for getting to your destination may be different and that’s ok. Work with what works for you.

·      Believe in Yourself. It’s important that you believe in yourself and in your ability to reach your goals. Your life has already shown you that you have amazing qualities that make you a winner. Don’t doubt yourself.
·      Ask for help. Sometimes we need to get rid of the superman/woman cape!  Some things cannot be accomplished without help. Reach out to someone you trust and who is willing and able to support you. Get yourself a mentor.

·      Mindset. It has been said that as a man or woman thinketh so is he/she. Therefore, it’s imperative to surround yourself with positive people who share passion and goals. TEAM Together Everyone Achieves More.

·      Take Action. While visualisation and affirmations are highly effective in propelling you toward your goals, you also have to take action each and every day. Inch by inch it’s a cinch.
