Realistic _ You want to challenge yourself to grow, but you also want to hit the goals you set. Set small goals that you know you can hit in the beginning. With that success you confidence grows. Once you hit a goal just reset it and expand upon it. Even if you first few goals seem like a cake walk it will get harder as you progress. Don\'t set enormous goals right off the bat or again you\'ll be setting yourself up for failure. Focus on consistent effort and increasing incrementally along the way. Timely _ This is one of the simplest yet most often overlooked aspects of goal setting. You must establish a time_line for the accomplishment of your main goal along with all of your sub_goals that will get you there. Just remember \"someday\" never comes. Without a hard time_line you\'ll never get to where you\'re going.
You Secretly Don\'t Think You\'re Worth It _ This is where the way you see yourself is important because if you see yourself as someone who doesn\'t follow through, who doesn\'t succeed and who can\'t change their life, you\'ll avoid goal setting like the plague. You\'re the only person on Earth who can control your actions, so you\'re the only one who can set the goals for you, and the only one who can make yourself feel worthwhile.
