When it comes to achieving goals, there are certain strategies that will always serve you. I've shared this specific message before and will continue to share it. That's because, whether you're a new subscriber or have been reading this newsletter for years, you can always benefit from this one simple practice. It can make all the difference.




The next time you set a goal, stop and ask "Why?" before you ask "How?"

When you get crystal clear about the reasons behind a goal, you will be much more motivated to reach it. You'll save yourself a lot of time and trouble by not pursuing someone else's goals. And, knowing "why" will keep you going when times get tough and the inevitable obstacles get in the way.

So, think about a goal that's important to you. It might be a personal goal like losing weight, finding your true love or retiring comfortably, or a professional goal like starting a business, getting promoted or learning new technology.

Make a list of all the benefits that come from accomplishing this goal. Don't edit yourself. Just write. Get emotional. If it appeals to you, you can mind map it. 

For example, if you want to lose weight, those "whys" might include:
  • Feel better.
  • Look younger.
  • Be healthier.
  • Live longer.
  • Enjoy more energy. 
  • Fit into my favorite clothes.

Then, go a step further and ask, "So what?" For example, feeling better and enjoying more energy will certainly enhance your relationships with your family and friends, as well as your coworkers and clients. And, being healthier equates to less time and money spent at the doctors.

Remember to use tools like a vision board and affirmations to elicit the support of your wise subconscious mind. As you establish new goals or recommit to your annual resolutions, I hope this simple exercise gives you more clarity and confidence to live the life you deserve. 

Inspire others by sharing on my Facebook Page how this strategy has helped you achieve your goals, or reply back to me. I love hearing from you!

Have You Heard What They're Saying?
"Simple but brilliant! That's Tricia Molloy's 'Work-Life Balance Wisdom' program. 
"Tricia spoke to more than 600 AT&T employees at our headquarters in Dallas and via webcast to AT&T offices throughout the country. She got us to think about our lives in a different way. Her empowering message struck a chord with so many of us, regardless of our level or lifestyle. We followed up the event with a book giveaway to encourage participants to improve their balance by making conscious choices-like cleaning out technical clutter and using positive affirmations. 
"Even a respected senior executive who is known for her commitment to balance said she learned some new strategies that she'll apply right away."
Tiffany Jenkins, Director of Audit Services
