Vol IV: 7 Steps to Achieve Any Goal


What if I told you there is a way to achieve your goals quickly and easily? Would you be interested in learning more? Most people think achieving their goals requires hard work and dedication, but that’s not always the case. You can use several techniques to make the process a lot easier.

In this blog post, I will share some of my favorite tips for goal setting. So whether you’re looking to lose weight, start a business, or get more organized, keep reading for some valuable advice.

#1: Focus on Systems

Instead of focusing solely on goals, it is important to focus on systems – the processes that lead to the desired results.

Goals can help set a direction, but habits are better for making progress and achieving lasting change. Achieving a goal can provide temporary satisfaction, but a well-designed system leads to long-term growth and success.

Additionally, focusing on goals alone can create an “either or” conflict – either you achieve the goal and succeed, or you don’t and are considered a failure, even if you are progressing in the right direction. This can be demoralizing and counterproductive.

#2: Create a Plan

Successful people have a well-thought-out plan to achieve their goals, and this is done by breaking down the overall goal into measurable sub-goals. Plans are powerful when they have concrete items, deadlines, or times attached, so there would be no confusion on what needs to be achieved next.

This also helps bypass the fear and overwhelm when accomplishing significant life changes.

Sample Journal

A motivational journal can be a valuable tool for this process, as it can help you to organize your thoughts and track your progress.

Here’s a sample template to get you started:

  1. My first sub-goal is to ____
    1. I believe I can achieve this goal because ____
    2. To achieve this sub-goal, I will ____
    3. This will be achieved by the following date: ____
    4. My reward for completing this will be ____
  2. My second sub-goal is to ____
    1. I believe I can achieve this goal because ____
    2. To achieve this sub-goal, I will ____
    3. This will be achieved by the following date: ____
    4. My reward for completing this will be ____
  3. What are the benefits of achieving your overall goal? List three important benefits, focusing on how much better life will be for you and those around you. 
  4. Whom will you tell about your goal and sub-goals?

#3: Shift Your Identity

Exercise: Expanding Your Identity

Your identity is not fixed and can be changed and improved over time. Keep refining and expanding it to achieve your goals and live a fulfilling life.

Here’s how:

  1. Make a list of the elements of your identity that you want to have. Consider which characteristics you admire in others and would like to develop in yourself.
  2. Imagine yourself fusing with your new identity. Visualize how you would behave, think, and feel in this new role. What kind of habits will you have?
  3. Develop a plan of action to help you live consistently with your new identity. Pay attention to the people you spend time with and ensure they support your goals and values.
  4. Commit to your new identity by constantly reminding yourself of it and using it to describe yourself to others.

#4: Reasons: Know Your “Why”

To achieve your goals, it is important to focus on the positive aspects of making changes in your life. Those who are successful at making and maintaining permanent changes often clearly understand why they want to achieve their goals and how their lives will improve once they are met.

For example, if your goal is to improve your health, you might focus on the benefits of having more energy, feeling better, and reducing your risk of illness. Focusing on why you want to achieve your goal can create a strong internal motivation that drives you toward success.

Visualize the End Result

Proactively condition your nervous system to achieve your goals with pleasure. Visualize your desired outcome in vivid detail, creating a clear mental image of your achievement and its impact on your life.

Rehearse twice daily and vividly envision yourself living out each dream, feeling every moment as if it were real. This practice builds unwavering confidence, assured action, and increased motivation, propelling you to fulfill your ambitions.

To stay motivated, keep your vision in mind while also set specific goals that help you move step by step toward that vision. Leverage the power of visualization by focusing on the end result and letting your subconscious work out the details to help achieve your goals faster.

#5: Visualize the Process

Visualizing the end goal is essential, but also focus on visualizing the process of achieving a goal. This approach has been shown to lead to better results. Concentrate on when, where, and how you will achieve your goals, not just the result itself.

Utilize the steps outlined in 59 Seconds to Happiness to master this technique. Reflect on your goals and desired results, barriers and problems, positive aspects, and potential difficulties. Repeat this process to stay engaged and proactive in the pursuit of success.

#6: Use Public Accountability

Share your goals with others to maintain motivation and accountability. Research shows that people are more likely to continue their goals when they declare them publicly. The fear of failure and loss of respect can motivate perseverance.

Agreeing to penalties with friends or partners for not achieving goals can provide an extra incentive to stay committed to your plans.

#7: Get Inspired

Motivation is an internal force, while inspiration is external, coming from others who have achieved similar goals. Seek inspiration from role models to overcome doubts, and limitations, and drive towards your ambitious goals.

Remind yourself that if others can succeed, you can too.


  • Visualize the end result to help build unwavering confidence, assured action, and increased motivation.
  • Keep your vision in mind while also setting specific goals that help you move step by step toward that vision.
  • Focus on visualizing the process of achieving a goal for better results.
  • Share your goals with others for motivation and accountability.
  • Seek inspiration from role models that have achieved similar goals to drive you toward success.
