How many times have you set a goal to reach for the stars just to fall short and feel disappointed?
“I’m going to clean out my attic this summer.”
“I’d like to save $5,000 in 6 months.”
“I will go to the gym 3 times a week!”
You may be surprised to know that 60% of people who set out with a goal abandon it within just 6 months. Is it because they actually could not do what they had set out to do? Not at all. In every case I have seen, observed, and studied, it has nothing to do with the person’s ability to achieve the task. In fact, it has everything to do with breaking the task down into tiny, measurable, and achievable steps that lead them towards his or her big “reach” goal.
Every human has the desire to feel accomplished and successful. On the same note, every human dislikes the feeling of failure. So it makes perfect sense that when someone starts to feel like that “reach” goal is just too far out of site, that person gives up. However, when we achieve a tiny victory, we feel successful, giving us that motivational boost to keep pushing on. That small victory leads us to the next small victory, all the way until that daunting goal has been checked off our list.
The purpose of this Success Tracker is to give you the tools to be successful at whatever goal you’ve set. Print it out weekly and update it to reflect a big dream, followed by small, measurable daily steps to get you closer to making your dream a reality.
We have included a sample for you to get started.
