There are perhaps 100’s, maybe even 1,000’s of blogs already written on the subject of the importance of goal setting, so why another?

Very simple.

We need to be constantly reminded of why setting goals is an important priority in every aspect of our life.

It’s called Top of Mind Awareness, or TOMA for short.

It has been said that “What You Think About, You Bring About.”

Or, as found in Scripture, “as a man thinks in his heart, so is he.” Proverbs 23:7

Let’s start with that idea and expound upon it for a moment.

What You Think About, You Bring About

If you are always the type of person who dwells on the negativity that surrounds you, unfortunately, you will never move forward.

I liken it to the idea of trying to drive down the road while constantly looking in the rearview mirror.

At some point, you are going to either cause an accident, or you are going to get hit by someone else.

If you are always thinking about what is wrong with your life and focusing on that, then you simply can’t move forward.

Therefore, guard your mind and what you constantly dwell on.

By doing so, you will set yourself up for progress and begin to find yourself moving in the right direction.

What is true of dwelling on the negative is also true of the positive.

Keep good things on the top of your mind at all times and anything negative that comes your way will roll off like water off a ducks back.

What type of Goals Should You Set?

Now that we have established the idea of thinking on positive things over the negative let’s talk about the type of goals you will want to consider placing in your life.

First of all, set goals that are attainable in a short amount of time.

When you set short term goals, you are more than likely to achieve them within that allotted timeframe versus setting just long term goals.

Think of the idea of eating an elephant. You would do it “one bite at a time.”

When you set goals so far out in the distant, many things can happen along the way that can cause you to either quit, become overly frustrated, and ultimately by setting them so far out in time, you will likely move on to something else.

When it comes to setting goals, it is our opinion that you will be far more likely to reach them if you set them in bite sized  increments and work on them daily.

Set goals that are 2 weeks out, a month out and so on.

One final thing on this, is to make sure that your goals are written down and dated.

What Happens When You Set These Types of Goals?

In this last section of this blog on goal setting we want to discuss what will happen when you set realistic short term goals.

We could summarize it very simply.

You are more likely to achieve them.

Yes, it’s that simple.

When you establish goals that are broken up into short term segments, you are more likely to conquer them in the long run versus just going for the grand slam right out of the gate.Set Smaller More Attainable Goals

The mentality of “go big or go home” will get you flat out frustrated and off focus.

I’ve seen this happen more times in my life than I care to count.

Experience has proven for me over and over again that in goal setting, apply the Eating an Elephant principle and you will find yourself hitting your targets more often than when you just simply swing for the fences.

We trust that if you will apply this information, you will find yourself on the ultimate path of hitting those goals more often and that will create a winning attitude in your life and what you have set out to achieve will more than likely come to pass much sooner.

Until next time…


Stay safe, stay strong and remember always,


You are A Champion, Be One!
