3 Reasons You Should Re-align Your Yearly Goals.

We are officially halfway through 2018 and I really wanted to share with you something that I am currently doing that will make a dramatic difference in your life.  Maybe you have set some yearly goals for yourself but have kinda let them go, or maybe you are totally on top of them but feel as if you aren't where you need to be to achieve those goals yet.

Personally I am somewhere in between, there are some goals I am going to easily achieve as long as I keep doing what I am doing now, and others I have no idea how I am going to achieve them by the end of the year.  So making this blog is a must because this is what is currently helping me align with where I want to be in the near future and really figure out exactly how I am going to live the next 6 months of my life.

1) Figure out which 2 goals are a priority.

I started 2018 in a great way, but it was also kind of stupid.  I gave myself to many goals and directions to move in.  I wanted to achieve a ton of stuff this year in different  areas of life.  Being halfway through the year I noticed that having all of these things to do every day made it almost impossible to have any direction in life.  

If you are putting your focus towards too many things try to narrow you goals down to 2 main goals for the rest of the year rather than having 5 or more.  This way you are able to put more energy and focus into your 2 goals for the year rather than having scattered energy and barely any progress being made.

This doesn't mean the other goals you have for the year are not worth while.  They should still be important goals for you, but they may be more beneficial later in life.  

2)  Make monthly and weekly plans for each goal.

Looking at a goal from 6 months away can be scary and intimidating.  If you are able to step back and look at how small victories will lead up to achieving that goal, it makes it tremendously easier to achieve.  

If you can go to bed each day or each week knowing that you accomplished something worth while and that means a lot to you then you can officially say that day or week was a great one to live!

This is a big mistake I have made is not setting smaller goals (or victories) that help me achieve the bigger goals I have planned for my life.

Yes I may want to weight 135 with a lean body this year (gaining 10 pounds of muscle) but if I only focus on that I will get discouraged.  However if I put my focus on 1-2 pounds of learn muscle per month, while simultaneously focusing on my end goal, then I will be motivated to achieve that goal.

3) Why have you set this goal? 

Reconnect with why you set the goals that you set for yourself.  Think of all the reasons that motivate you to keep going on that goal.  How much will achieving this goal improve your life?  How much will it improve the lives of those around you as well?  What makes this goal important to you?

Ask yourself these questions for motivation and a meaning for each goal.  Without meaning your goal wont be able to give you motivation to achieve it!

Closing thoughts.

I hope these 3 tips have helped you and gave you insight on how to make sure you achieve your goals for the rest of the year!

Be sure to share your goals for the second half of the year in the comments section!
