    • Identify your greatest strengths
    • Identify things you need to change in your life
  • 7.
    • The most vital steps toward reaching your goal are making a personal commitment to yourself that you believe in and then committing all of your available resources toward the completion of that goal
    • SMART (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, and Timebound)
    • Goals need to be adaptable (may need to be adapted to the very changing circumstances of your life)
    • Desirable (to attain a difficult goal, you must want it very badly; you could never work toward something just because someone else wants it)

    • 1) A goal statement with a target date (SMART)
    • 2) Action steps (specific actions)
    • 3) A narrative statement
    • 4) An ‘I deserve it’ statement
    • 5) A personal signature
  • 9.
    • The narrative statement is about what your goal accomplishment will mean to you and how your life will change when you achieve this goal
    • The “I deserve it” statement is key; many people do not follow through on their goals because deep down, they don’t feel they deserve them
    • The “I deserver it” statement asks you to consider why you deserve this goal
    • Signing your goal statement shows that you are making a personal commitment
    • When you have accomplished your goal, you will find that the feeling is somewhat addictive
