Have you ever noticed how some goals make you feel like you’re at the mercy of outside forces (like the scale or how your clothes fit?)
… while other goals put you firmly in the driver’s seat?
I don’t know about you, but I like to be in charge of my goals and whether or not I achieve them.
It looks like this:
You can’t directly CONTROL the end result. For example, you can’t actually control “losing 20 pounds” … even if you wanted to.
But what you CAN control is the actions you need to take to make it happen – like adjusting your nutrition and changing your workouts (among other things).
Creating ACTION-based goals are not only great for your confidence and building momentum, but they will also give you hyper-clear benchmarks for success!
Basically, if you just DO what you set out to do, you win.
As a side effect, they also help you reach any aesthetic goals you might have for yourself. (Like losing that 20 pounds or fitting into those goal jeans!)
You can set ACTION-based goals based on:
- Eating balanced, healthy, portion-controlled meals for 90% of your meals
- Getting in x # of quality, programmed workouts a week
- Sleeping 7-8 hours a night
- Drinking 8-10 glasses of water a day
To make it fun, you can motivate yourself with rewards along the way – like a new workout outfit, getting a massage, taking a day trip, getting a new activity tracker, etc.
This works – and builds confidence – because you have control over your ACTIONS and can see (and feel) a direct result from what you do.
The more you take intentional action, the better you feel … and that’s a win-win!
Take a look at one of the goals you have set for yourself. Can you turn that into a tangible action-based goal to help you get there?
Write it down and get it in your calendar!
