“Set Your Goals – You Can Do It” by Joan Y. Edwards
This is the time to review your past goals and set your goals for the current year. Any time is a good time to look at and focus on recommitting yourself to your goals. If they are no longer meaningful to you, it is time to revise them to make the goals in your mind and on paper ones that you really want to reach.
When I was in sixth grade, my teacher had these little encouragement signs all over the room. One of my favorites was: “Make a Wish Upon a Star, take a seat and there you are.” This showed me that if you set your eye on a goal, you can reach it.
Day 1 Title the page with your name and goals for the current year.
Brainstorm possible goals. Set time to reach the goals for December 31, 2018 or 12 months after you’ve made your list. List them all on a piece of paper or in a file on your computer. Let them sit overnight in your mind. Save file as Day 1 Goals for this year.
Day 2 Read them over the next day. Delete any goals that you have already reached or revise them to be goals you really want to reach. Delete goals that you wouldn’t care if you reached it or not at the end of the year. You want your goals to be items you feel a strong yearning to reach. Save this file as Day 2 Goals for this year.
Day 3 Read the goals again. Make sure you agree with them. Make sure you believe you can accomplish them. Revise any to make them so they not too hard and not too easy. Goldilocks goals…just right. Believable and Achievable.
Add 1-3 Images at the top of your goals to inspire you.

Print out your goals. Post in a picture frame on the wall or on a file cabinet where you can see them every day. Revise when necessary to keep your mind positive and motivated to meet your goals and live and conquer your fears.
There are many ways to reach your goals. You know yourself better than anyone else. Choose the method that works for you. Many people make goals in their heads and are successful at keeping them. Others write down their goals. Still others share their goals with a close friend that keeps them accountable for their goals.
As for me, I like writing the goals down so that I can look at them every once in a while to see how I am doing.
If you check your goals every 6 months, you’ll be amazed when you see how many of your goals you have reached and how close you are to others. There may even be one or two you want to change and set a different goal.
Here is a link about a that says that it’s a good idea to write down your goals and also to write down the steps to achieve them. Even if you don’t write down the steps, you can achieve your goal. Good luck! Dreams come true when you believe in you.
