Why GOAL setting is the Number 1 thing you need for success. The 9 surprising benefits you didn’t know about:
Why set goals? I this question a lot from my clients. Until quite recently , it didn’t previously occur to me that there is a lot of misunderstanding and confusion about goals and why they're so vital for your progress...
People just don’t know why they set goals and what the benefits are. If they do it, it’s because someone told them it is important. But do you actually know why?
To me, goal setting is a natural thing to do, but even I find a great motivation to “remind” myself why is it important to set goals.
I say it's a "natural' thing for me to do; when i actually thats not entirely true: I've conditioned myself over years of sporting events, or dance shows and bodybuilding competitions to understand innately the benefits to my progress when i have clearly defined goals and a vision set out ahead of me.
So what's the purpose of setting a goal:
Goal setting may seem like an arduous task but without the following you cannot expect yourself to make and continue to keep making life changing choices and decisions.
Goal setting/ Vision Planning helps us align our actions with the things we value most highly and reverse engineer that outcome to happen.
Think of the concept like this:
You jump in your car, pop the Sat-Nav on and start driving... but where to?... why? ... what are you hoping to achieve? Are you going the right way?
Compare that instead to having crystal clear defined goals and outcomes; You jump in your car with a specific destination in mind, you know exactly what route to take, how long it likely to be, any potential hold ups on route and you are clear about where you are going!
Makes it muuuuuuucccccchhhhhh easier to stick with the route. Your goals for your weight loss are no different.
Goal setting helps us by giving us:
- life with purpose
- a sense of accomplishment;
- live longer
- make life happen
- unlock the potential of your heart
- learn and grow
- and .. have joy/fulfilment
