The goals we set ourselves in life concern the things we care about.
Looking behind us, most of us can spot a variety of mishaps and failures. This often leads us to not set new goals for fear of not being able to achieve them. But why leave dreams unfulfilled? Instead of backing down, you just need a system that works.
Imagine the year of change. Let’s imagine that twelve months have passed, and that we have finally achieved our personal and professional goals.
The 5 concepts to improve one’s life
This program has been designed to help you find clarity, develop goals, and leverage the courage needed to achieve these goals, to make the year you face the best in your life.
The article is based on five basic concepts:
- Real life is multifaceted ; there are 10 domains linked together: Spiritual, Intellectual, Emotional, Physical, Marital, Parental, Social, Professional, Amateur, Economic.
- Each of these domains is important . Being interconnected, everyone must be treated if we want to achieve success.
- Progress can only begin when you truly understand where you are now .
- You can improve each of these domains .
- Safety , happiness and satisfaction are the result of personal growth.
If we don’t believe we can achieve our goals, we will surely fail.
Break down uncertainties and believe in possibilities
If we improve the way we see things, our situation often changes.
Our expectations determine what we believe is possible. As a result, they also shape our perceptions and actions. This means that they determine the results.
And therefore also our reality. One of the biggest obstacles we encounter in reaching a goal is the uncertainty of doing it. Past disappointments and defeats make us develop a cynical self-defense mechanism.
Each of us has beliefs that limit what we believe is possible. These beliefs concern the world, others and ourselves. Four signs to recognize them are: thinking in white-or-black, personalizing, catastrophizing and universalizing.
Where do these beliefs come from? They often arise from our past experiences and disappointments, but equally often we are influenced by the mass media, social media or our past relationships.
How can we go about changing the situation? We must replace these limiting beliefs with liberating truths.
We can use these six steps: Recognize, Register, Review, Reject / Re-team, Review, and finally Reorient.
- Recognize the power of your beliefs
- Compare the limiting ones
- Update your beliefs
Complete the past to improve the future
We often fail to focus on the future because we are too focused on the past.
We cannot complete the past without recognizing what has happened to us. If we try to ignore it, it will come back to sabotage everything we try to do. This process is divided into four phases: declaring what we wanted to happen, recognizing what actually happened, learning from experience, changing our behavior. In this way, we can transform regret into opportunity.
Another fundamental element for our process is gratitude. It keeps our hopes alive, reminds us that we have the opportunity to act, increases our patience, and increases our responses. Documenting what we are grateful for in writing can help us focus on the positive things, as well as being useful for future reflections.
We will not be able to get what we want without first being grateful for what we already have.
- Analyze it later
- Find the aspect of regret growth
- Document your gratitude
Use writing to plan the future
Written goals tend to stay.
