When it comes to Goal Achievement, most of the time, what people have when they are wondering why they are not getting anywhere is dreams. Now there is nothing wrong with having dreams, after all if you dont have one, how can they come true. But dreams are very different to Goals and goal achievement. I have heard it said before, and its a line I borrow often when working with people, Goals are dreams in action. That is, a goal, is a dream with direction, that is measurable and thought out. So that is what this course is about. This course is concerned with writing and planning your goals, its about goal achievement, or putting your dreams in action so that you can achieve whatever you desire in life. would that be ok?
You are going to learn the key components of a well crafted goal so that you can confidently pursue it safe in the knowledge that you will achieve it.
You will learn about the unconscious mind and the powerful resources within you to assist you in achieving your goals. And you will learn actionable steps that you can use straight away.
- This course is for anyone who is fed up with quitting goals !
- This course is for anyone who wants to become more effective
So why would you want to learn about goal setting and the Psychology of goal achievement. Well you have probably heard it said before that you have to have a goal if you want to achieve anything. And of course that is true, without a goal, without something to aim at you have nothing to hit.
When we are learning any new skill or topic there are a number of stags that we go through before we can say that we are fully competent. You have probably heard the phrase practise makes perfect and that is of course true. In NLP we can use modelling to model the skills, thought patterns and values and beliefs of another person so that we can fast track the route to competency. And whilst this improves our performance massively these 4 stages of competency as we refer to them in NLP still need to be gone through before we are totally competent in a specific area.
the Conscious Competence stage and in this stage we are able to carry out the tasks or skills that we have been learning consciously. And by that I mean with conscious energy and effort we are able to fulfil the task. So in our car example, we have taken some instruction and we know now how to change gears, etc. And to do so we need full concentration and we need to literally think about everything we are doing.
If you stop and think about it pretty much everything we do is based around the setting and achievement of goals and we already set goals in every area of our life, In our relationships, our businesses the work or job that we do,our health and fitness, everything.
if you have a goal in mind and and maybe you have even scribbled that goal on the top of a piece of paper, ask yourself òHave I been specific about this goal? and the chances are if you are like most people that you will say to yourself òYeah, it looks pretty clear to me .. And Im going to say STOP. And then think about it or look at it again and ask yourself is it really specific.
How are you going to know you are hitting your goal? Well first of all it is worth mentioning that at many levels, if you have set your goal correctly all you really need to do is trust your unconscious mind to take care of it. Now that doesnt mean you do nothing as you will find out in the next part, however what it does mean is that once you have engaged your unconscious mind and set it off on its mission to deliver up your goal all you need to do is trust your intuition and that little voice in your ear that attempts to guide you.
You can certainly set your unconscious mind off on its journey to helping you achieve your goals, and your unconscious mind will bring opportunities and possibilities to your conscious mind for you to act upon, your unconscious mind will also handle your motivation for you and keep you fired up and moving forward. However, as powerful as your unconscious mind is, it cant make a ferarri magically appear on your driveway, simply because you have set a goal. No for that you are going to need to take action.
In personal development circles, in my opinion a lot of trainers and coaches get this one wrong as well and they will drum into you anything is possible etc and therefore everything is realistic. Well that simply isnt true and if you mess this up then you are probably going to end up digging deep to keep your motivation up which really doesnt work.
One of the most common reasons why people fail to achieve their goals is the fact that they don‚Äôt set any time frame on their goals. They may well have been really specific about what there goal is and how it is going to pan out, and they may well have worked out all of those control variables we spoke about so that they can keep a track on the goal and make sure it is still on track, They could well be taking a lot of action and have a realistic goal. However
By now you have most probably decided. YES I am going to go for it, I am not going to be afraid and even if I sense a little fear I am going to do it anyway, after all what is the worst that can happen right?
Well good for you, as you have just set yoursefl apart from the VAST majority of people on the planet that get stuck at the point of actually doing something.
SMART stands for Specific - remember the more specific we make the goal the more likely we are to achieve it. , Measurable - we need to have some control variables along the way to ensure we stay on track, , Action based - remember a goal without action is a dream , attainable - so the goal needs to be possible, remember the golf championship or As if, - which if you recall means that we should pursue the goal with the mental and physiological traits of someone that has achieved the goal so we should act AS IF we already have all of the things we need to achieve the goal and the mindset of the person that achieves such things. .........
