A goal is a dream with a deadline.
Think and Grow Rich
Creating a clear, concise and inspiring goal statement is a crucial initial step to bring your dream to life.
Your dream is the “big picture” the vision reflecting what you desire. A goal is a smaller expression of your vision. Too often we jump into writing a goal without truly having a clear vision for our life. Follow this model to create powerfully potent goal statements:
Model for Creating Powerful Goal Statements
- Write your goal statement in the present tense. (Writing in the present tense, generates a strong, Yes I can feeling, since the words are inviting you to imagine your goal is already accomplished. If you notice you are questioning your ability to accomplish your goal, include the words easily, confidently and effortlessly in your statement. See our examples below.)
- Express your goal as the result you desire – what you want not what you don’t want.
- Identify a specific deadline for your goal.
- Use words that generate the feelings, in the present moment, of your goal accomplished. (This is the secret of the Law of Attraction, embodying the feelings of your goal accomplished before you actually see it in your physical experience. This is faith in action.)
