Value = Goals = Behavior = Self-esteem
“If I had 8 hours to chop
down a tree,
I’d spend 6 sharpening
my ax”
Abraham Lincoln
Long vs. Short
A short term goal is
achieved quickly (finish
term paper, wash
dishes, mail Christmas
cards by Friday, etc.).
They help you achieve
your long term goals.
Long term goals will
take months, years, all
your life.
For example: graduate
from college, become a
pilot, lose ___ pounds,
Do you believe you can achieve?
• We need to learn how to dream.
• Keep the dream alive, reach your goals
• Some people don’t decide or have a vision
of what they want out of life. NO GOALS!!
• People with goals can see what they
eventually want to achieve and they can
see just how to get there.
Things to remember:
Goals must be realistic – you
can’t lose 40 pounds in one
Must prioritize – rank in order of
importance you, can’t
accomplish it all at once.
Do you have the resources you
need to reach your goals
(money, information, health,
energy, skill, etc.).

• 80% of success is showing up
• If you are not working to where you want
to be, you are AUTOMATICALLY
working to where you don’t want to be.
• Keep your most important values in mind
at all times when you are making LESS
important decisions.
• Don’t sacrifice what matters most for
something that doesn’t matter that much
to you. There are always trade-offs

You will have roadblocks
You can have excuses or success but not
There are three types of people
Ones that make things happen
Those that let it happen
And the ones that don’t know what
Which one are you going to be?
Creating SMART goals
S pecific
M easurable
A ttainable
R ealistic
T imely (and Tangible)
Creating specific goals
A specific goal has a much
greater chance of being
accomplished than a
general goal.
Creating measurable goals
Establish concrete criteria for
measuring progress toward the
attainment of each goal you
set. When you measure your progress, you stay
on track, reach your target dates, and
experience the exhilaration of achievement
that spurs you on to continued effort
required to reach your goal.
Creating measurable goals
To determine if your goal is measurable,
ask questions such as:
• How much?
• How many?
• How will I know
when it is accomplished?
Creating attainable goals
When you identify goals that are
most important to you, you begin
to figure out ways you can make
them come true.
You develop the attitudes, abilities, skills,
and financial capacity to reach them. You
begin seeing previously overlooked
opportunities to bring yourself closer to
the achievement of your goals.
Creating attainable goals
You can attain most any goal you set when you plan your
steps wisely and establish a time frame that allows you to
carry out those steps.
Goals that may have seemed far away and out of reach
eventually move closer and become attainable, not because
your goals shrink, but because you grow and expand to
match them.
Creating realistic goals
To be realistic, a goal must represent an
objective toward which you are both
willing and able to work.
A high goal is frequently easier to reach
than a low one because a low goal exerts
low motivational force. Some of the
hardest jobs you ever accomplished
actually seem easy simply because they
were a labor of love.
Creating realistic goals
To determine if your goal is realistic,
ask questions such as:
• Do I truly believe that it can be accomplished?
• Have I accomplished anything similar in the past?
• Can I identify the conditions that would have to exist
to accomplish this goal?
Creating timely goals
A goal should be grounded within a
time frame. With no time frame tied to
it, there is no sense of urgency.
When do you want to accomplish your
goal? “Someday” won't work. But if
you anchor it within a timeframe (“by
May 1st”), then you have already set
your unconscious mind into motion to
begin working on the goal.
can also stand for Tangible
A goal is tangible when you can experience it
with one of the senses, that is, taste, touch,
smell, sight or hearing.
When your goal is tangible you have a better
chance of making it specific and measurable
and thus attainable.
