Hello there you!
Are you moving forward with your goals? Or has that little seed of doubt returned? You’re losing the motivation to move on and next thing you know procrastination kicks in.
When we set goals, we need a solid plan in place, written down, and a time-frame. Realistic goals. So you can work on that action plan.
Build it up slowly
Start off in baby steps (yes build it up nicely) and work on that confidence. Believe in yourself. Do all that inner work. Work on the relationship with yourself. Get to know your strengths and weaknesses, your passions and what drives you!
Ask yourself, what exactly is my plan? How can I make this achievable?
When I set my own goals, I am more focused/clear when I actually do it step by step. Sometimes you can get too carried away and want the whole shebang overnight. All these incredible thoughts/ideas running around in our heads. The next thing you know you’re overwhelmed, and that confidence dips, oh boy does it dip. When it gets to that stage, step back and ask yourself these questions:
- How can I do this in a more manageable way?
- What is stopping me from moving forward right now?
- What have I learned?
- How do I really feel?
Set realistic goals, then reassess over time. And if you are reaching those targets, then yes aim higher, go for it. Do it. It really is all in the planning.
Using the SMART guide to help with setting those goals
When setting goals just think of the following guide SMART to help throughout the process:
When you become stressed/anxious our body goes into overdrive. Then the procrastination starts and you are going nowhere. You are spending way too much time doubting your capabilities (I know this too well)
Sometimes, you just need to take a break, recharge those batteries and come back to those goals with a fresh outlook; raring to go again.
Each step forward counts
Even taking a step back.
I know myself when that little seed of doubt starts growing, and those weeds start sprouting; I need to ask myself ” why is this happening?”
You are only human at the end of the day. Go easy on yourself, set realistic goals. Yes, it’s great to aim high, but “slow and steady wins the race” otherwise you burn out before you even reach the starting line!
Take action, set those goals and be kind to yourself. Look within. All the answers are there!
Break it down to a manageable plan of action for you. Use the SMART guide throughout the goal setting process to help.
We all go at our own pace. Listen to your gut.
