4 Steps to Goal Success 

  1. Decide What You Want - When you ask most people what their goals are or what they want out of life, they often cannot answer. And when they do, the goals they say are often what others have influenced them to want. This course will help you determine what YOU really want out of life and how to make your goals achievable and inspirational. 
  2. Know You CAN Achieve It - Many people hold themselves back from the goals they really want because they believe they cannot have their true desires. Often people don’t reach their goals, or even try, out of fear of change or failure. This course will help you find evidence from your own life that you can believe in yourself and give you the confidence to know that you have everything you need to be successful. Anything you want is possible for you. 
  3. Make a Plan for Achievement - Even the most strongly desired goal cannot be achieved without a solid, actionable plan. Often, people get discouraged when goals are not reached or attempts lead to failure. This is most often because the goal wasn’t well thought through and an effective plan wasn’t made. This course offers detailed, yet simple, strategies for planning a route toward your goal, while keeping you motivated and on track. 
  4. Stay Motivated - Even the best plan is ineffective if the person following it isn’t motivated. And, unfortunately, most people leave motivation to chance—waiting until the moment that they need to feel motivated and finding it’s not there. This course helps you prepare your mind state in advance so that your true desire and big reason for reaching for your goals are strong enough to pull you through those times when doubt, discouragement or procrastination threaten to zap your motivation.
