MiGoals are all about giving you the tools and stationery to help you achieve your goals – but we all know that sometimes aspirations don't quite stick or pan out. So the founders have shared some of their top tips that'll put you in the best position to achieve your goals in 2018.
1. Write down your goals
The average human being has on average 50,000 thoughts a day. The whole point of goal setting is to help you gain clarity, focus and direction, which gets thrown out the window when you have all these thoughts going on in your head. The power of writing your goals down on paper is it forces you to focus your attention on what’s important.
2. Set goals you're passionate about
By doing this you automatically increase the odds of achieving your goal. A quick tip to find out if the goal is something you really want to achieve is to ask yourself 'Why?' three times. By asking yourself, 'Why do I want to achieve this goal?' three times, you'll dig deeper and really get to the true crux of why you're doing what you are doing.
3. Tell someone who cares
The journey towards achieving your goals is always going to be challenging. Doing it on your own and maintaining that self-belief can be tough at times, so that’s why it's important to have help along the way. When you share your goals with some one else, it makes you both accountable and gives you an avenue for support.
4. Take consistent action
Now that you know what your goal is and how you're going to achieve it, the next and most important part of making it happen is by taking action consistently. For most people, they set their goals and get super excited and take massive action in the beginning, but then an obstacle pops up and they give up or fall back to taking minimal action. The trick is to get into the habit of taking consistent action day-in day-out.
5. Celebrate your progress
Goal setting should be fun and something to get excited about. Far too often we are too hard on ourselves in the process that we forget to celebrate the progress we've made. So remember to acknowledge big and small wins along the way – life is short and it's always much sweeter when you celebrate the journey.
