Monthly goal setting review –

We have past the 21st of June; the longest day of UK summertime, so from now on the UK days will slowly get shorter. Driving down the motorway I can see the corn fields turning yellow and harvest cannot be many weeks away. My daughter spotted a hotel advertising Christmas meals (in June!)….yes we will soon enough be eating Christmas turkey again!

Doesn’t it make you think? 2011 is half way through already. It is a good time for a review of progress made, both for the past month, as well as back to New Year’s Day. So firstly how have you got on since the 1st of January? Are the goals or resolutions of that day long forgotten? Or are you making some progress with them? Maybe you have had a good year so far and achieved some good results already since that day.

How about this June? At the start of each month I encourage my thousands of readers to set or reset a goal and at the end of each month to review that goals progress. How have you done this month?

It is worthwhile having a regular set review period, so that time or a lack of progress does not march on unchecked without noticing.

Whether this month or this year, if you have reached your chosen goal or made some good progress towards it, then be glad and grateful for that. If not, do not allow yourself to become disheartened by it. Remain positive; as I so often say, “I believe the number one lesson from personal development is; that it is vital to have a positive attitude.” Review your goals progress and all that you have learnt in the time of trying to achieve your goal. Check that your plans are as sound as they can be, but realize that often you cannot know it all at the outset. Some things you are just going to have to find on the journey towards your goal. By keeping your goals dominant in your thoughts, all the right answers will come to you as you need them.

Be clear on your goal.

Understand why you want that goal.

Be calm and know that you are going to reach your goal.

Have faith.

Be persistent.

“Goals give you more than a reason to get up in the morning; they are an incentive to keep you going all day. Goals tend to tap the deeper resources and draw the best out of life.” – Harvey Mackay
