Want to know how goals create success stories? Having a clear goal is the first step to creating yourself a blueprint for success. Years ago, I noticed a very real difference in results between clients who participated in our programs with coaching that included work with goal setting and those that didn’t. A clear, well-planned goal can be used to help you create your success story.
According to a study done by Gail Matthews at Dominican University, participants who wrote down specific goals accomplished significantly more than those who merely remembered theirs. Who doesn’t want to perform significantly better? And all you need is a written goal? Sounds simple, right?
It is. And the reason this works is because your brilliant mind recognises your intentions. And as you clarify and write things down, some shifts occur.
1. You start to create a new identity
That means the moment you establish a clear precise goal, your mind kicks into action and creates a new ‘you’. But it also recognises the difference between your current ‘self’ and your goal ideal. Tension forms so your brain works to resolve this by getting you to work to achieve your goals.
To use this effect to your full advantage, you need an explicit, exciting goal that has a positive impact on your current self. FITNESS GPS has been designed to help you do this with some pointed questions and exercises.
2. Would you like a reward with that?
Your brain loves you. And when you do good things for yourself, it rewards you by releasing dopamine! Dopamine is a mighty fine chemical that makes you feel great and helps keeps your mood buoyant. It’s no coincidence that achieving what our brain wants us to make us physically feel great.
Tap into this reward by setting small, achievable goals. Even to the extent of planning something so simple to accomplish, you’re tempted to laugh at it. But you’ll have the last laugh. Creating a reward cycle for yourself keeps your motivation high, so you’re on track to reaching your BIG goal. Fitness GPS helps you to create a big goal and then break it down to a series of tangible, easy to follow steps to keep you motivated.
3. So WHY do goals create success stories?
Think back to the times when you’ve had a goal in the past. Was what you wanted to achieve clear, specific and exciting? And do you know why you wanted it? Did you know what precise actions you needed to take to achieve your goal? And how long it would take?
If you didn’t answer these questions clearly now, it would have been tough for you to succeed. Goals need to be defined and specific. You have to be able to acknowledge what you want in life and from yourself to be able to begin to create a success story. How can you have a happy ending if your story doesn’t have a beginning? Or a hero?

What would be better for you short and long-term – a lifestyle adjustment with a few positive changes or all-or-nothing weight loss?
Why do changes have to be fast? What’s your plan for after 3 months time? How do you plan to sustain the work you’re doing to maintain your gains? What will you learn and how will you grow? What will change your life for the better? How will this make you feel? Does this improve your lifestyle, your body and how you feel about yourself? Intensive programs can get amazing results – for around 4% of the population. Everyone else is stuck in the cycle of continually starting again. Is this your goal? The ideas of deprivation and punishment for results come from the media – not from your dreams and goals, I guarantee it.
