Setting Goals and Achieving Success Series

In the comments section I welcome you to share what gets you stuck when reaching towards a goal and how you get unstuck or refocused on success?

Part 2: Creating a Plan of Action/ Asking for Help

 Now that you’ve assessed the plausibility of achieving your goal and the outside variables that may affect your success (Part 1: Set Yourself up to Succeed), it’s time to put your goal into action. Developing a plan of action is the first active step towards making your goal a reality, and it is my favorite part.IMG_1209

When I set action plans for my goals, I think about what I need to do to make it a reality. I list my goals and a detailed action plan and post them on the back of my closet door.  I post them so everyday when I go into my closet it reminds me of my targets.  As I achieve a goal, I check it off.  You would be surprised how fast things get crossed of the list and your list will get small with time.

Asking for HelpIMG_1096

In the last year I have had to ask friends for favors. What is the worst that can happen, they say no?  Well, at least you learn who your real friends are.  I’ve never been good at asking for help; I used to feel strange about asking for anything.   I have learned an important lesson, that’s what friendship is all about; helping each other and being there for each other.  When working towards a goal become comfortable asking for help.  Asking for help is not a form of weakness; it is a sign of strength and self-awareness.

In the comments section don’t forget to share what gets you stuck when reaching towards a goal and how you get unstuck or refocused on success?

Stay tuned for Setting Goals and Achieving Success Part 3…
