If you’re interested in creating successful goal setting, these strategies will empower you to set ambitious but realistic career targets you can truly achieve!
When it comes to your career, it’s natural to be ambitious and want to carve out a career that is highly successful.
Of course, while it’s important to have ambition, it’s also crucial that you are realistic about your career and potential.
In fact, research shows…
Basically, having goals is vital. If you have no goals to aim for, you won’t feel motivated to work as hard. But If you set unachievable career goals, you will end up feeling let down and disappointed.
When I coach clients I tell them: You want to aim high. But you also want to think about what you can realistically achieve.
Either way, you need to have goals in place to stay motivated and on track.
As a turnaround coach, I’ve witnessed time and gain that goal setting is not as simple as writing a list of targets that you want to meet within a set time frame.
There’s a lot of elements that you need to consider.
Below is a guide I’ve used to help my clients create and set ambitious but realistic career targets to achieve.
Studies have shown that when it comes to meeting targets, there’s one factor that is absolutely crucial. You need to have a clear goal in mind.
It’s vital that you’re aware of what you want from your career.
Goals shouldn’t feel comfortable. Every goal that you set should challenge you in some way.
Of course, while your goals should challenge you, they shouldn’t be unrealistic.
Basically, every target you set should come with a challenge. But don’t create goals that you have little chance of achieving.
Don’t be one of those people who moan about their jobs, but never bother to attempt to move their career in a different direction.
If you’re unhappy with your career, then you need to be committed to trying to change it. You need to be actively taking steps to move things forward.
If you are serious about improving your career prospects, you need to show commitment – and keep staying committed. Hence it’s important that you do a little something regularly to move forward. But don’t over-commit – or you’ll become discouraged and stop.
A great tool to stay committed: Journaling! You can share your progress. Get in touch with things you need to do more of – or less of. Plus you can use the journal to celebrate small steps forward along the way. I enthusiastically recommend my Listen to Your Heart journal.
If you want to give yourself every chance of moving your career forward, you need to put yourself in a position to achieve success.
When it comes to success, it’s important to remember that often, we make our own success. If you want to move your career forward, you need to take a proactive approach. You must push yourself into a position for success, even if the road is challenging. Don’t be afraid to push yourself. You will increase your chances of ending up where you want to be.
