Arrange Your Life to Support Your Goals

If you have huge goals, working on them here and there whenever it’s convenient will delay ever reaching those goals.

If you arrange your life in such a way that supports those goals, however, all aspects of your life will be working together - complementing each other - with the realization of your goals as the result!

Yes, arranging your life around your goals helps you create the exact life you want!

Use these strategies to make it happen:

1. Define your goals.

Know your goals. This is always the first step. Success isn’t an accident. It requires a vision and intention.

Clarify exactly what you want to happen, in such a detailed way that you can see, hear, smell, taste, and feel all aspects of that life.

2. People.

Are the people in your life supportive of your goals? You have a choice to make.

You can spend time with others that make you more likely to be able to live your purpose, or you can spend your time with those that make it less likely for you to live the life you truly want.

Are there others you need to connect with in order to achieve your goals? Maybe it would help to have a banker or two in your life.

Maybe a coach or a marketing expert would spur you on. Invite new people into your circle that will support your goals.

You can only spend time with a certain number of people. As they say, you become like the people you spend the most time with.

Are you spending time with the right people?

3. Diet.

If you want to run a marathon, that’s a different diet than someone that wants to win a bodybuilding contest.

Do you need a lot of energy, or do you need a lot of focus? What type of diet allows you to do your best work?

Experiment with several diets and pay attention to how they impact you physically and mentally.

4. Sleep.

What is the optimal amount of sleep for you? You might find that you can pursue your goal much more effectively if you get more sleep.

Most people require 7-8 hours of sleep each night to be at their best.

5. Time.

How are you spending your time each day? Are you wasting time on mere distractions or trivial pursuits?

When you’re using your time to chase after your goals, are you choosing the most effective actions or the easiest?

Track how you spend your time each day and see what you discover.

6. Home.

Are you living in the right city, neighborhood, or home to best pursue your goals?

For example, it would be very difficult to become the world’s greatest skier while living in Illinois. Where do you need to be to maximize the odds of your success?

● Should you be living in the city or the country?
● East coast or West?
● Condo or farm?
● Near the mountains or the ocean?
● Alone or with others?

7. Career.

Are you making enough money to pursue your goals? Is your career helping or hurting your efforts?

● For example, if you need to be free during the day to pursue your goals, then an evening job makes more sense than a day job.

● If your current job or career path doesn’t support the life you want, research one that will and make plans to pursue that path.

Big goals require the coordination of every aspect of your life. If you want to run a 10K, you can work that around your current schedule. If you want to become a billionaire, it’s going to take more than that.

How big are your goals? How serious are you about achieving them? Are you ready to arrange your life to support your goals? You can get started today!

Take A Few Baby Steps Toward Your Big Goals

Big goals can be scary. It doesn’t matter if it’s losing a significant amount of weight, paying off a large chunk of consumer debt, or changing careers. When we look at those big goals, we get intimidated.

We put off working towards them because we either don’t know where to start, or because the task simply seems too daunting. Today we’re going to tackle that issue and start making progress.

The key to reaching any goal, no matter how big or lofty, is to get stared and take baby steps. You can reach any goal and make any change if you consistently take small steps towards it.

My goal for you today is to motivate and inspire you to take a those first few baby steps toward your big goal.

The best part is that you don’t’ have to have it all figured out to get stared. You don’t need to know exactly what you’ll have to do at every step along the way.

You don’t need to come up with a plan to pay off your entire credit card debt. You don’t have to figure out how exactly you’ll lose all of those 65 extra pounds.

You don’t need to know what it will take to buy your dream home. And you don’t need to know everything there is to know about opening and running your own bakery.

Today is all about making a little bit of progress and getting started.

This gets you over that initial hurdle and builds momentum. It will also help you realize that you can figure out the rest along the way. Ready to take those first few steps right now?

Start by looking at your big goal, the changes you want to make, or what you want to get out of life. Know what your end goal is, but don’t worry about everything you need to do to get there.

Just make sure you have an idea of the general direction you want to head in. At this point, it’s fine to simply decide that you want to lose some weight and improve your health, or pay off those credit cards and student loans to give yourself some financial breathing space. Go that goal in mind? Great!

Now come up with one or two little things you can do right now that help you move into the right direction. It doesn’t matter how small those steps are.

They may seem insignificant when you look at the big picture, but they will quickly add up. Most importantly, they get you started. Let’s look at a few examples of what those baby steps may look like.

If your goal is improving your health and losing weight, your baby steps may be to go for a 10 minute walk each day, or replacing soda with sparkling water.

Maybe it’s trying some new healthy recipes and getting into the habit of eating a salad or steamed veggies with two meals per day.

If the goal is to save money or pay off debt, it could be to have $20 per month auto drafted into a savings account or to pay the principal of your debt.

Or maybe it’s going through bills and cutting out some monthly extras like canceling magazine subscriptions or downgrading your cellphone and cable bills.
