Create Realistic Short-Term Goals For Success

Have you ever been disappointed that you didn’t accomplish a goal? Maybe you wanted a new car but your credit score was lower than you thought and you weren’t approved for that loan or you had a goal to lose a certain amount of weight within a month but it didn’t happen. I completely understand, that’s why I created daily short-term goals for myself to accomplish. It has been proven, if you set short-term goals for yourself it boosts self-confidence, improves mood, and it leads the way to accomplish your long-term goals. When I think of long-term goals I envision buying a house, improving health and fitness, vacationing abroad, and building a successful business. Obviously, long-term goals takes time but the good thing about that is, you can take your time, there is no need to rush to accomplish your long-term goals when you have short-term ones that can quickly be achieved. Personally, I like to jot down daily tasks that I want done and put it on a calendar so I can mark it off when I am finished. This is the most simplest way of achieving short-term goals. I consider short-term goals to be: cleaning out a closet, mopping floors, laundry, getting an oil change, buying tires, or beginning your fitness journey with working out three times a week. Short-term goals that I have planned for this week are: incorporating fruits and veggies in my daily diet, drink a gallon of water each day, clean my master bath, and organize my hygiene cabinet. Once I complete my short-term goals it gives me the extra motivation that I need to chip away at my long terms goals. Mama, you don’t have to be overwhelmed and frustrated by long-term goals taking longer than expected. Write down some short-term goals and achieve them. Even if it’s small, it’s still success. A short-term goal is better than no goal.
