Did you know, one of the many reasons dieters fail is because they do not have goals that inspire them? It’s true. Most people will never take the time time to redefine their lives and set realistic goals.
Trying to lose weight without setting a clear goal is like trying to build a business without a plan. Just having an idea of what you want isn’t enough, you have to be clear about what you want, and then plan how your going to get it.
In today’s article, I reveal the 5 reasons why goal setting will increase your weight loss success rate.
1. Setting A Goal Compels You To Become The Person It Takes To Achieve It
The real value of setting a goal is not so much by its achievement. The real reason for setting goal is to compel you to become the person it takes to achieve it.
For most people, they think losing weight is all about numbers and appearance; however, the greatest part about losing weight is in the new skills, attitude, disciplines and experiences you develop in attaining that success. It’s the willpower to attract the results that make you a slimmer, healthier and happier person.
2. Setting A Goal Will Inspire You To Keep Doing The Right Thing
Many people who start a weight loss program, feel like it’s a chore. They aren’t inspired about the process, and usually forget why they started. Writing your goals down will keep you inspired about the process, and will remind you about why you started.
So many people decide they want to lose weight, but in less than a week, they can’t think of enough reasons to keep going. They allow negative emotions to hold them back. However, if you kept a goal journal at hand, and read your goals everyday, you greater your chances of sticking to the weight loss plan.
3. Setting a Goal Will Separate You From The Majority Of People Who Don’t
It is said that a person with average talent and education can outstrip the most brilliant genius in our society, if that person has a clear goal
Many people fail to write goals because they don’t believe that what they want is attainable. In fact, many people think that writing goals are a waste of time. And these are the same people who complain about their weight year after year.
Writing down your goals will place you in the small percentage of people who are most likely to be successful in losing weight, and leading a healthier lifestyle.
Instead of being like everyone else who will not set a clear goal this year. Instead, grab a journal, write your goals, and be different.
4. Setting A Goal Gives Your Life A Whole New Meaning
If you were to research the lives of some of the world’s most successful people, you will find they all have one thing in common: They set goals. Setting goals will give your life a whole new meaning. Setting goals will compel you to lead a lifestyle that most people on ever talk about.
If you take the right action, and commit yourself to your goal, weight loss and personal change will be certain. As time goes by, you may find that some of your goals aren’t so important. And that’s good. Its a sign of personal change.
How To Write Your Goals
When setting goals, especially for the first time, it’s easy to become overwhelmed. But remember this: Your ability to become the person you desire will always match your goals. The more you work on your goals, the more opportunities will present themselves to you.
Start your your goal journal like this:
1. Write a detailed description of what you want, and then describe what life will be like as a result of achieving it.
2. Write the reasons why you want to achieve this goal of yours, and then describe what will happen if you don’t act on it.
Remember: What you want is a powerful motivator, but only if your reason to attain it are good enough. Once you have clarified your goal, read them as often as you can, and review them once every week to see if it’s still important to you.
