Unfortunately your link didn't come through correctly, maybe you can't link on these posts. 

So I'll add one of my goal setting ideas:
When I need to zero in on a particular goal I'll put sticky labels all over the place to remind me.  Once the goal has been reached the labels are taken down with much celebration.

It's the celebration that helps to motivate me!!!

Anytime you set goals you run the risk of setting them so "high" that they can seem overwhelming and unattainable.

So, should you just NOT set goals? Of course not! However, this is likely an excuse that many use to give up before they start.

Simply break your goal down into smaller, attainable segments.

If your original goal is to attain something specific by 1 year from your current date, it likely looks HUGE at that point. However, if you break it down to what that means monthly it brings that down to a "smaller" view. DO THIS but also then go further and break that down to what needs to be achieved weekly (which again brings that down to a "smaller" view) and then, yes, break it down to necessary DAILY activity.

YOU have decide to take action at that point. If you are one to make excuses (and most "excuse-makers" don't want to admit that even to themselves) then it doesn't matter how "small" we break it down, you still won't take action.

FOCUS on that daily activity and you WILL reach your goal!

Break any goal into smaller more manageable goals, then just complete them one by one. The reward system is a great way to motivate as mentioned above.  ;D

Keeping yourself motivated with goals can be tricky...
Here's a quick "hack" to get you through the week and look back with prideful eyes on what you accomplished. Keep in mind you can do this for your annual goals as well, but I find that doing this weekly is a great exercise to keep you motivated

Take 20 minutes at the beginning of the week (Sunday or Monday) and categorize your week as best you can...
For instance...
Finances---Budget for month of February---Save $200 this week
Health---Workout Monday, Wednesday, and Friday for 30 minutes---
Take kids in for their check up on Friday
Marketing---Cold call 20 new prospects---Schedule appointments for following week---Create template for customers to use when filling out forms on site....

As you get through the week...check these off.
You can always look back at this if you get lost with what you need to do but it also shows how much you've ACHIEVED!

In my personal experience, motivation is quite high at the beginning of any goal. However, pressure builds while confidence and motivation level dips as time passes.


Therefore, how I have managed to achieve my goals so far, is by keeping my eyes on the larger picture. Instead of thinking about what rewards I would get on fulfilling a particular goal like achieving weight loss, completing a writing deadline, ending a toxic life pattern or habit etc, I try to focus on efforts. Example : Eating healthfully, moving enough and writing for a set amount of time everyday with or without inspiration.


While pursuing goals, I try to keep myself full in other areas of life, like praying, chanting, reading, traveling and relationships. This speeds up manifestation since I'm not just chasing that particular goal accomplishment.


Let me know your views . Cheers!
