Guest Author Kathy Balland - Achieve Your Goals

There may be times in your life when you feel stuck. You may be in a situation that is making you unhappy, however you are lacking the inspiration you need to help you to achieve your goal; whatever that goal may be. Sometimes you may not even be sure of what it is that you want.

If you are unclear as to what your goal is, you can take a look at each area of your life. The areas may include: Family, friends, health, career, finances, physical location, hobbies, and also your love life. You can begin by determining on a scale from one to ten (ten being best) how you feel about each of these areas of your life. After you determine which area has the lowest number, you can then think about what you can do to make that area a “ten”.

Once you have determined what your goal (or dream) is, then you can begin to focus on it by determining what steps you need to take in order to get there. One thing to consider is that even though you may not be happy with your current situation, it was that situation that launched your dream. So it is important to appreciate where you are in your life, which helps to create a positive mental attitude. This attitude can help to move you in the right direction more quickly.

Also, it is a good idea for you to surround yourself with other people who have similar goals. This support system can add more inspiration, and can provide even more ideas which will help you to reach your goal. Determination is very important, because the person who did not reach their goal is usually the one who gave up before they reached the “finish line”. (Consider that Thomas Edison tried 700 times before inventing the light bulb.) Sometimes, you simply need to keep trying and not give up.

If there comes a time when you could use some extra inspiration, a personal life coach can help you to find out what you want, and can help inspire you to get there. Also, a hypnotherapist can provide positive visualization, which can help you to reach your goal more quickly by using the power of the subconscious mind. Any of these tips and tools can help you to reach the goal that you desire.
