Goal Setting Quick Tip


 Start your goals with, "I AM..."

Every year I sit down and write out my goals in the different areas of my life. One tip I received form a motivational speaker last year was to write out your goals using I AM:

Most people just write down their wants, or what they will do. Why not write them as a self fulfilling prophecy of what you are doing?

Others start off with I WILL . . .

Instead, use I AM . . .

This year, in my "writing" goals, I started off with these three goals:

  • I am a writer and speaker that inspires children and adults of all ages, to achieve their dreams and goals in life.

  • I am an author with a successful, highly respected, knowledgeable literary agent.

  • I am contracted, with a large  publishing house, for my novel.
