How to Set Goals and Be Successful at it!

Goal Setting
This week I wanted to help you kick your goals in the butt! October 10 was National Kick Butt Day! I know we all have a goal or two maybe even a bunch of goals we want to complete.  I also know how hard it is to actually start! Especially if you are doing it by yourself! This past week I started up an  Stock Photography Shop on Etsy and it was really a goal I had for a long time, just was too afraid to start. But I just went for it! Now I've never had my own business so this is completely new for me! I had high expectations but realized I needed to take it down a notch and learn and grow! Have I had my first sell yet, NO! Have I created a bit of buzz, eh it could be better! Nonetheless I'm proud that I started and I want to encourage you too! Whether it's just getting a new blog post out their or starting your own business don't be afraid to just do it....actually it's ok to be afraid but do it anyway!

Now after you find that goal it's time to make it all happen!
Stay tune til the end because I have a FREE GOAL WORKSHEET FOR YOU!

How to Set Goals and Do it!

1. What is your #1 long term Goal
(That one goal you can't shake no matter what)
2. Ok, Break that Goal down into ACTIONABLE and ACHIEVABLE short term goals 
These are the goals that you need to achieve in order to get to the REAL BIG GOAL!
3. Make these goals specific as possible 
Planning the details is the most important part! The more detailed you are the better it is to achieve these smaller goals.
4. Time to make ACTUAL STEPS in Doing these smaller goals
Make these steps achievable by acquiring an actual time frame. 
5. Challenge yourself but don't overwhelm yourself
Challenge brings growth.
6.But Be Realistic
Set your sights on what you can do...this is where you need to be confident in your ability.
7.Ok now its time to start!
