Why set goals?
“The trouble with not having a goal is that you can spend your life running up and down the field and never score.” – Bill Copeland
“You need a plan to build a house. To build a life, it is even more important to have a plan or goal.” – Zig Ziglar
Tomorrow starts the 24-day challenge that I’m doing with my clients and with anyone else who wants to join us. One of the first requirements I ask before the challenge begins is for you to spend a few minutes writing out your goals for this challenge. Without goals, you have no direction and it makes it way to easy to stop doing something.
I’ve been to many seminars and have read many books and am sharing with you today the importance of goal setting from a website I follow called Personal Excellence
Goal setting is the first step toward successful goal achievement. It marks your first point toward success. It is what put your life into real action mode. Without this step, the other steps of goal achievement cannot take place.
Have you ever encountered people who have a passive approach toward life? They don’t set any goals and they just live life on a meandering, day-to-day basis. You see them 1 year, 3 years, 5 years from now, and their lives are largely the same, save for a few changes that are really more the result of others’ actions and desires rather than their own.
6 reasons why goal setting is so important:
Gives CLARITY on your end vision
Drives you FORWARD
Gives you laser FOCUS
Makes you ACCOUNTABLE
Be the BEST you can be
Live your best LIFE
Take a few moments and write our your goals for the next 24 days while doing this challenge. It could simply be that you want to complete all 24 days of the challenge. I allow 2 cheat days and maybe you want to allow yourself only 1. Another idea is to commit to a number of days per week you will workout.
Tomorrow (September 4th) is Cleaning Day! This means drinking at least 80oz of water, no coffee (tea and Spark are ok), and eating no processed sugars (if it comes in a box or package, its probably processed).
