Sports Goal Setting
I talked last week about how we all have goals. Now let's start narrowing down your goals. I am going to talk specifically about sports, but this can translate in to anything you are working on in your life.
In order to start achieving your goals, you need to know what they are, right? As crazy as that sounds, many of us say we have goals, but we really don't. You need to have your goals written down. It can be a journal, a piece of paper or a white board. It doesn't really matter, but it needs to be put down on something. If you have not been putting this into practice in your life, start today. Not tomorrow, not next week, and not next month. Do not put off what you can do today, until tomorrow. No procrastination allowed! :) Procrastination gets you where? Nowhere! If you want to go nowhere, then don't work on goals, and certainly don't do it today.
Ok, so now you are ready to set some goals. Set daily, weekly, monthly, yearly, 5 years, and even 10 years. This way you have all types of goals to challenge you. Set personal goals. It can be as simple as doing all of your conditioning without complaining for an entire practice or even a day. A weekly goal could be that you want to be the first one to practice and the last one to leave for that week. You can have different set of goals for the emotional part of your sport. We are all passionate about the sport we are doing, or we wouldn't be doing it. If you have a situation where your emotions start spiraling out of control when a coach corrects you, start making goals to handle it better. Another type of goal setting can be physical. How are you going to get stronger? What can you do to work toward that? Yet another goal can be spiritually. Never, ever cheat yourself by leaving out your spiritual side. Make sure that it lines up with the goals you are setting. You will not be happy if you try to do things that go against your core beliefs. Please don't ever lose site of that. If that does happen, then you lose YOU. You can do this!
