Setting goals based on motivation means that you seek an extra encouragement to generate ideas while setting the goals.
But goal setting through inspiration will not depend on an extra inducement to step up to create your goals. The ambition is already there in your mind, and you already have an idea of what you need to achieve, this information drives you to create the goals that will make it easier to achieve these goals.
In many instances, goal setting done based on motivation usually ends up with frustrations and discouragement. There is a lot of difference when you set goals by inspiration. Achieving these goals will be easier because you want to achieve them and because you clearly know the impact these goals will have on your business. One of my favorite quotes for inspiration from Stephen Richards tells: “Never allow your mind to wander untamed like a wild animal that exists on the basis of survival of the fittest. Tame your mind with consistent focus on your goals and desires.”
The following steps should be a part of your strategy to create the right goals through inspiration.
- Consider many options, avoid restrictions while thinking about your goals
There is yet to be a defined limit to which goals can be beneficial so feel free to be creative while planning your goals.
Approach goal setting with boldness. You are only limited as far as your mind believes. Be open to consider new possibilities for your business
- Ensure that your goals can be achieved
Be reasonable when setting goals, this is an important part of goal setting to avoid frustrations and abandonment. While you should be bold and open to new ideas, be realistic about achieving these ideas and the impact on your business
- Start with a good plan
Without a good plan you might end up wasting a lot of valuable time, but with a good plan and the right inspiration, you will know exactly what you have to do to proceed.
- Source for reliable feedback
There are many benefits in carrying out research and analysis. Based on your business, you can choose from a variety of feedback mechanisms. Find out what other people think about your ideas. Find out how people who have done it before achieved success, and apply these principles in your business.
