Take Pride Tuesdays: Goal Sharing

The trouble with not having a goal is that you can spend your life running up and down the field and never score.
— Bill Copeland

Have you ever wanted to accomplish something so amazing, but didn't because it seemed too difficult or overwhelming? That's because you are only looking at the end game and not the building blocks to incrementally get you to where you need to be. To accomplish your aspirations, you must set goals. Goal setting is much more than simply saying you want something to happen. If you can clearly define exactly what it is you want, and understand why it is you want it, your odds of success are considerably reduced.

In order to hold yourself accountable (and measure your success) you may want to create goals that fall within these guidelines: specific, measurable, attainable, relevant, time bound.  Physically writing down your goals make them come to life and become tangible as well as provides you with the information necessary to learn about yourself and your potential.

ILP has created cards to help you focus on short term and long term goal setting. Take the next step in your fitness journey and write down your goals and stick them up on the “I WILL” board, eventually turning them into “I DID.” You may even find that many of your peers within the Den have very similar goals, so, don’t be afraid to offer support or just cheer them on.
