Achieve Your Goals

Good morning loves, ❤

As you may have noticed, I’m the kind of person who likes to set goals. There are so many things I’d like to accomplish, and coming up with concrete goals every month makes it manageable for me (otherwise my head might explode).

 

HOW TO ACHIEVE ANY GOAL

 

  1. DECIDE ON YOUR GOAL

Write it down, and don’t worry about it being too big or too small. As you work through these other steps, you might find you’re able to be more specific.

 

  1. FIGURE OUT YOUR MOTIVATION

There’s a reason you wanted to work on this goal in the first place, so make sure you write it down in case you find yourself struggling later. Maybe it’s to feel better about yourself, to further your career, or to gain a new skill.

 

  1. DECIDE ON A DEADLINE OR TIME FRAME

If you set a time frame for yourself, there’s more pressure to actually work on your goal (in a good way). Maybe your goal is to start running. Well, there are so many different ways you could measure that. Do you want to run 2 miles every other day, run 10 miles total every week, run for 20 minutes every day, run 20 times by the end of the month, run a marathon by Jan 30th? Be as specific as you can.

 

  1. CHOOSE A REWARD

If there’s no incentive to achieve your goal, you’re not going to be motivated to try. Choose something you would like but don’t really need, like a new nail polish or a new loose leaf tea.

 

  1. COME UP WITH 3-5 ACTION STEPS

Break your goal down into smaller steps to make it more manageable. If we’re going with the running goal above, some smaller steps could be to lay your running gear out the night before, log your runs in a journal to stay on track, and find two new trails to go running on.

 

Think in positives. If your goal is to stop doing something, think of an alternative that you can start doing instead. If your goal is ‘I will not check Snapchat at work’, try to turn it into something positive like, ‘I will log out of Facebook while I’m at work.’

 

Find the underlying goal. As you keep asking yourself how and why you want to achieve your goal, you might discover that you have an underlying goal instead. Example: I need to stop hitting the snooze button. Why? Because it makes me late for work. Why do I hit the snooze button? Because I’m tired. Why am I tired? Because I went to bed too late. Maybe the real goal here should be to go to bed earlier.

What goals are you working with at the moment?

 

Wherever you are in the world, have a lovely day ❤

Kiama Holiday

Hello my loves ❤

Another short but sweet post ❤

So from 20/11 till 23/11, I went down the south coast of Sydney, Australia to a beautiful little coastal suburb called Kiama.

It was honestly breathtaking, from the moment I got there till the moment I left, I was speechless. The place I stayed in, the environment, the people, the weather, everything was beautiful, nothing could be faulted.

This holiday was a time for me to switch off, focus on myself, & figure out my future & also what 2018 will bring for me both physically & mentally.

I have never thought so much in my life – I honestly thought so much whilst I was away. So many things were put into perspective for me & I had to make some tough decisions in life, but I know that they benefited me in every way possible.

I have big goals for 2018 to conquer & I know I am more than capable to achieve these, I am happy to now start working on myself & make myself happy.

Whilst I was there I made myself breakfast, lunch + dinner – I enjoyed living independently, that was a good test. (Not ready to move out of home yet, haha)

I went to the gym every day whilst I was there which was fun, I am happy that I got to squeeze some workouts in. Everyone at the gym were so friendly, I couldn’t believe how friendly they were.

I went for long walks, meditated a lot, relaxed, de-stressed, watched teevee, ate lots of food, & truly took some timeout.

Below are some photos that I took whilst I was down there, I didn’t spend much time on my phone as I wanted to enjoy my company & breath in a different lifestyle.

I hope you enjoyed my photos ❤

Wherever you are in the world, have a lovely day ❤
