Taking control: How to accelerate your starting over goals!


Starting over goal is a well thought and clear statement of purpose that articulates what you want to achieve after you failed the first time.  They are regarded as ‘new’ because a person has objectively evaluated the core reason for failure and therefore wiser.

A well thought goal motivates you to reach it!
How to successfully accelerate any of your starting over goals!  
All negative thoughts are foggy because they lack consciousness of what is real and are often motivated by the ego’s attempts to cover up flaws.  Failed relationships cause social stigma to self and members of the families.  For instance, a broken relationship often carry misconceptions of why and who contributed to failure. So, it is prudent to take time in the planning of what you want to achieve in starting over goals:

1.    Develop a plan of action:  Of the three categories that define optimal life – relationships, wealth and health – which is a priority?  To make this experience as real as possible, you need to answer this question as objectively as you can and write down key points. Find a template of what SMART goals are and do your best to articulate yours. Break your goal into sub-goals in order that your work plan can have timeline. For an example, if I want to start a transcribing home business, the most important core skill is typing.  Would I be able to have internet connection at home so that I can work anytime and access other helpful resources like the best software and tutorials to learn new skills?

2.    Make your goal a commitment that binds you and override any other activities: Start over goal is like repeating a class; your aim should be to succeed regardless of challenges. In other words, you must ban any excuse against meeting your weekly timeline. For an example, if you have to do something during the week which caused you not to meet your weekly target, you must be prepared to cancel other activities over the weekend so that you can start the next week as scheduled. This is called integrity; which means adding value to your commitment even when no one is looking.

3.    Change the way you think: All things started as an idea and the previous one failed because you did or did not do something. Make sure that you take full responsibility to pass this time like it is with a determined student. Let no one participate in your goal to a point where you could be tempted to delegate major tasks. For example, if you allow other people to help you, it does not shift the responsibility to them; their role is to assist and not take over.

4.    Create conducive environment and evaluate weekly targets: You need positive energy. Maintain a positive emotional state by starting and ending the day with meditation. It has been proved that meditation is a conscious effort to recharge your spiritual and physical self with much needed positive energy. Focus on the end result of the identified goal. Ban procrastination, which comes in many disguises such as watching useless television programs or engaging in non-essential activities like reading promotion mails in your inbox.  Manage your time and keep track of challenges and achievements. Celebrate your small achievements; they are important components of your goal.

Multi-tasks have a tendency to validate reasons why you failed to meet timeline. If this is your first start over goal pertaining to any are of your life, consider dropping other distractions so that any time after the day job, is reserved for the identified goal.  Sub-goals help you ‘see’ the distance between the start point and the finish line. Once you attain one goal, your motivation and confidence will energize you to set another one; thus transforming your perception from being a failure to an achiever!
