5 Ways to Manage Your Goals: Know Your Why

5 Surefire Ways to Manage Your Goals

Define Your Why.

“If you don’t design your own life plan, chances are you’ll fall into someone else’s plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much.” ~ Jim Rohn

You want that kind of energy behind your goals. You want to feel alive and energized and driven to take on the obstacles and struggles that are sure to come. You need to utilize that energy on the days when you just don’t feel like working on your goals.


The key here is to attach your goal to a why that is so profound that it will nag at you if you try to neglect it.

What I have learned through all of my experiences thus far with success and failure is that in order to make your vision a reality, you must have a clear plan, and take massive action. And when I massive action, that doesn’t mean cramming every single task you can into one day, and leave no room for sun or social events.

What I mean is, “You need to take Petit Steps to Success, to achieve your goals.

After identifying what fear feels like to you, focus your energy on setting clearly defined goals and creating a plan of action to set those goals in motion.

The first step in setting clear goals is to get razor clear on your why. In connecting your goals to your why, a foundation is laid to maintaining motivation. By doing this, you create a connection that will propel you and your actions.

When you feel alone in the desert of your goals, your why will provide the lifeline you need to succeed. You know what I’m referring to, don’t you? -Those moments when you haven’t quite made your goal a reality, but you won’t stop trying to find the fuel to persist. Those are desert moments. Your energy is down, it’s hot and you’re feeling dry, wounded, discouraged and thirsty. These are the moments when your why will keep you moving forward. But, your why must be heart-centered.

Your Why is Your Lifeline."

Then, once your why is established, your priorities will align with your goals.
