If you want to improve, you need to have a strategy. But I find that the goal-setting strategy alone is not enough to achieve our goals, and you need to create a goal-oriented strategy. This is a hack that is designed to help you set goals to fully know what steps you need to take and to perform. There are a number of things in this strategy that I find that people often forget about.
Below are some key factors and why having these goals in mind is important in your overall growth.
Having a goal in mind is not a time-consuming process. We all have different desires and dreams. The challenge, however, is sometimes to find the right motive for reaching that goal. What has helped me in the past was setting myself a LITTLE goal.
SMALL GOALS are built on SMART goals. The idea is that the objectives should be:
Simple – Direct and direct.
Measurable – Something you can see your progress in.
Achieved – Is something you can achieve right now.
Reality – Be grounded in your performance and movement.
Timely – Available on your dedicated time.
Minor objectives build from there by adding two questions:
What is ONE thing you most want now?
Why do you want it?
To help you answer those questions, I use the 5 Whys framework to find the deepest desire. When I first started using this strategy it was at times when I believed it was important to dedicate one aspect of your life to giving of time to another. I spend a lot of time working at my job and spending less time taking care of myself, or spending time with my wife, children.
When my health reached a peak – severe back pain from a bad posture – I knew I had to get my life back on track. And then among the many goals, I wanted to work on regaining my strength and not suffer from back pain.
This is the framework I used:
What is my current goal? Exercise once a day.
Why do I want this? Because I want to be healthy.
Why… I want to be healthy? Because it hurts to do physical activities that last longer than 15 minutes.
Why…? Because I don’t have time to exercise or I’m too tired at the end of the day.
Why is that a problem? Because my two sons are young and strong and I don’t want to have any problems getting along with them.
Why is this important? Because I want to be there and participate in their growth. It would really hurt me to be on the sidelines for physical reasons.
Frame 5 Whys helped me find my real goals in this career. As a result, I was able to take some actions that would make it easier for me to reach this goal. For example, I set new routines in the morning and at night that focus on increasing my energy level.
“A well-placed goal is scored in the middle.” – UZig Ziglar
Another thing I find that people get lost are the important things. Setting a goal is also good, and having a strong personal motivation to achieve it is helpful. However, if you do not set marks – or categories – then it is difficult to see if you are improving or not. Depending on your SMARTER goal, you will want to set 12 milestones – one per month. Every single month your focus should be on completing that milestone.
When you think of a landmark, you definitely want each landmark to bring you one step closer to your ultimate goal. And you can adjust the events if you can see that it will not take you a year to achieve that goal.
No matter, the landmark must meet the following criteria:
It should be a challenge.
It can be completed within three to four weeks.
It has to be concrete.
If you are unsure how to set up key categories, the following can help:
Look for people who have done what you want to do. Pay attention to people who have a record of achieving those goals as well. Ask them for an answer. Most people are happy to give you directions.
Find online communities like Quora, Facebook groups or Reddit. Asking for an answer there can help you find some milestones.
View street maps that share your proximity and convert you. There is no shame in copying or inspiring others with a road map.
While people know what they want and how to get there, sometimes everyday tasks can be deceptive. Sure, people know what action to take, but what specific steps should you take? When I started exercising, I never went to the gym to exercise my back. Instead, I prefer to stretch at home. Why did I go with that strategy over any other way because of the action plan.
It helps you to look at the options you have and choose the one that makes the most sense to you. After all, your time is important and you want to make sure you put time into the actions that give you the results you want. For me, I’m not looking to lose weight or develop muscle. I wanted to be strong enough to be able to keep up with my kids. How did I reach this conclusion by asking three questions:
What are my goals? To be healthy and not feel tired from doing simple physical activity.
What steps can I take? Stretching morning and night, and playing with my kids.
Why did you take these actions? Because stretching does not take up much of my time and provides enough for me to get the results I need.
One way to look at this is that actions have accomplished three ways:
It tells you why to do it.
It clearly shows the benefits of the work.
It shows you what you need to give up or invest in order to get that benefit.
The last part people have to work on or lack a reward system for. Even though the purpose is more about the journey than the end, you still want to celebrate in some way. But how much?
What I find helps the solid and lasting rewards complement two options:
You get the same amount of good reinforcement you get for each reward.
The overall size is directly related to the effort you put into completing the milestone.
And remember that there is no shame in using the same reward over many steps. If they are widely distributed, they have the same reward.
As more and more people focus on setting goals and making sure everything is perfect, people often forget about other details in order to achieve goals. Between you and the completed goal, there is a long way to go. But using these strategies, getting to your goals will be easier.
Everyone wants to be confident. And for good reason, real self-confidence allows you to feel good about yourself and your abilities. You smile more and you have a more positive attitude because you truly love yourself and your health. Because of this, you attract people (and opportunities) to you without power because of the warmth of friendship that extends to the whole world. I cannot imagine a single person who does not like being around people who are warmhearted and approachable.
Unfortunately, for the most part in our society, people lack a leading quality of self-confidence. If you ever feel like one of the people who falls into this category, don’t move. Because I will share 3 powerful ways to gain self-confidence in life.
- Try New Things
It is impossible for self-confidence to grow within the boundaries of your comfort zone. You have to get into the unknown, go beyond where you are now to increase your self-confidence. You do this by trying new things. When was the last time you skipped your normal routine and tried something different? Do you even remember? We can get so caught up in the affairs of daily life that we often miss the forest because of the trees.
It is much easier to get into trouble when we come to a comfortable and comfortable place in life. And it is at this point that your confidence begins to plummet. What are you thinking of trying to do, but have not yet entered? Do you want to try your hand at getting up? Maybe you took the martial arts? Or maybe you enrolled in a dance course? It’s up to you – what do you want to do?
By trying things that excite you, challenge you, or frighten you, you are forcing yourself beyond your current comfort limits. And being on the edge of your comfort zone in this way forces you to adapt and develop the habits within you that are asleep right now – and in this “dance” real growth takes place. And growing up, of course, is a major factor that contributes not only to your self-esteem but to your whole life as a person.
- Organize Your Money
Moreover, this may seem counterintuitive when it comes to self-confidence. But money plays a vital role in our lives and can have a profound effect on your self-esteem. Having money gives you options and freedom. It gives you more confidence in job interviews, business conversations, and makes you feel more stable in life.
Lack of money replaces poverty, frustration and despair. And logically, it is hard to trust yourself when you are in debt, still in debt, and you are paying a salary. But it doesn’t have to be this way because, with the right plan and strong ambition, anyone can change their financial situation, and as a result, strengthen their self-sufficiency – which is very important to gain pride.
Develop Confidence in Your Financial Position in These 4 Steps
Get into the budget – keep track of all expenses. Every dollar that comes in and every dollar that goes out – make sure everything is listed.
Live Less Than You Do – This is easy, if you always spend more money than you bring, you will never go further.
Clear All Debts – If you have debts, then a dollar more than your basic living expenses should pay your creditors.
Create an Emergency Fund – Many financial experts agree; You should have a cost of 3 to 6 months saved only for emergencies (car repairs, job loss, family illness, etc.). Just think how confident and relaxed you can be if you don’t pay your bills, you have $ 10,000 + in your bank account.
Well, money is not the end of everything, be it all — feel good about yourself. However, there is something to be said about the confidence it gives you. Get this part of your life and I promise you, your confidence will increase significantly as a result.
“Keeping busy and making a living hope can restore your faith to you.” – Lucille’s ball
- Respect yourself
There is no greater killer of self-confidence in life than watching and behaving immorally. That is why it is so important to respect who you are. Now, I understand that may seem like a vague statement, what does it mean to “respect yourself” literally?
Going to the gym and exercising regularly, eating a healthy diet, following your commitment (and others), spending time with people who love and care about you, work out passions and hobbies that bring you joy and happiness.
It imposes and imposes healthy boundaries when people cross the line, does not tolerate disrespectful behavior from anyone, other than independent. Simply put, self-respect means doing what is best for you, and do not tolerate low-level behavior from yourself or others. This is how self-esteem will allow you to be confident.
3 Ways to Gain Self-Confidence
Speak Your Mind – Say what you really think or feel. Too many people test themselves out because they feel that their ideas are “politically correct”, or they fear that they might offend someone. GOOD. In a nutshell, you will see who really loves you, and who you should kick off on the sidewalk.
Stop Sacrifice – If you say you will do something, do it. Stop sacrificing yourself and your desires easily. Developing persistence is one of the best ways to gain self-esteem and as a natural product – gain self-confidence.
Go – Leave any situation (or person) that is not conducive to your growth and development. If you value yourself, you will not live in a place where your sense of well-being is disturbed. This includes jobs, lovers, friends, entrepreneurs, etc. Leave them all behind if they do not help you and do not help you on your journey.
When you have self-respect and you behave as an important person, you can not control yourself but to build self-confidence.
