Ever feel that setting goals is a pointless exercise? Or that even when you set goals, you never follow through? That might be because you’re not making your goals compelling enough!

In part one of this goal setting success series we looked at the 5 reasons why your goals fail – the old model of setting goals. In today’s episode we explore a new model – the 6 most important steps you must take to set compelling goals that make you fired up to achieve them.

A few great questions to ask yourself to check what is really important to you are:

“If no one else cared whether I achieved this goal or not, would I still want to?”

What would I do if I knew I couldn’t fail?

The truth is that behind old patterns of conditioning, current fads and those ‘shoulds’ you really do know what you want.

The key is to be open and honest with yourself and allow your truest desires to call your name.

It is then important to make sure you goal matches what is important to you. To know this, you must explore your values.

Your values are the significant truths within you that make you, YOU.

They help you to determine what is important to you in any given situation and often are what you attach an ingredient of worth to. And you have ingredients of importance and worth connected to your all areas of your life.

Check out these 6 steps you must take to set compelling goals:

  1. Know what you really want.
  2. Make sure you goal matches what is important to you.
  3. State your goals in positive language.
  4. Be detailed and specific.
  5. Make your goal compelling.
  6. Create a plan of action to support your goals and TAKE ACTION!

When you put these steps in place, you take out the guess work around setting goals and give yourself a strong foundation from which to leap into action!
