Goals are huge for anyone looking for success. It doesn't matter what kind of Fitness Program you're following or what goals you're aiming for, you need to set goals. I know it's a a few days past New Year's but I thought that I'd expand on this "New Year's Resolution" idea and how you can maximize your Fitness Program by setting the right goals, the right way.
This is why I want you to start off fresh and make your New Year's Resolution. Why? Because your new year's resolution can be your way of setting true goals that you can follow and succeed with.
Research shows that individuals who set goals for themselves have been more successful reaching those goals, while those who don't do anything about their goals, end up failing.
Why A New Year's Resolution
When you make a new year's resolution, it tends to be one of the biggest goals you're trying to achieve and the one thing you're very serious about. This is where you need to take action and set your Six Pack goals for this upcoming year (its currently 2012). I know the world is supposed to "end" but why not set goals that you can aim for with the "small time we have left?"
There are a number of reasons that a New Year's Resolution is so much more extreme than normal everyday goals.
You feel as if you've started fresh, instead of halfway through the year
You feel like you have more time to succeed and aren't "short on time" since you have an entire year
For some reason we naturally have a stronger desire to succeed when we turn our goals into New Year's Resolutions
You feel like you "reset "your life and tossed aside all of your past failures as opposed to carrying that baggage around when you start midway through the year
Surveys show New Year's Resolutions tend to be more permanent and produce more success than normal everyday goals we randomly decide to put into place
How To Go About Your Six Pack Goals
I've decided to break down the perfect goal-setting method into two words, S.I.X. P.A.C.C. Now, this is the way I go about my goals and I only share this method with you because it's the right way to set goals and the only method that's proven to give me results time after time.
There are individuals who don't set goals, individuals who don't set their goals right, and individuals who set goals the right way. I want you to be as successful as possible with your Fitness Program and the only way you can succeed is if you set goals, the right way.
Before we get into the details of this method actually let me explain what each letter stands for. S=satisfying, I=Intense, X=exciting, P=permanent, A=attainable, C=concrete C=conceivable.
That's the basic idea of this method and like I said earlier, this is the only way you should be setting your six pack ab goals, especially while you still have time to call them "New Year's Resolutions." Now that you have the basic concept down, let's get into the details of this method now.
You're probably wondering what satisfaction has to do with succeeding with your goals. Think about it this way. Do you want to reach for six pack goals that are going to satisfy you or do you want to go for goals that will give you partial satisfaction?
When you aim for goals that will satisfy you, you're more likely to work harder and succeed in reaching those goals. For instance, let's say your six pack goal for 2012 is to lose a certain amount of body fat.
However, deep down you know that you won't be satisfied until you get those toned six pack abs. Now you feel pretty good once you reach your body fat loss goal but you aren't satisfied yet.
Your real goal is to get toned abs, so you move on from your first goal to an even higher goal. This is the kind of un-satisfaction that most goals bring to many individuals, and I want to help you avoid this unsatisfactory feeling. So, instead of moving on from goal to goal, make your New Year's Resolution one that will satisfy you completely once you've finally reached it. Satisfaction is our whole reason for setting any kind of goals.
You're goals should be intense, plain and simple. When I say intense I mean that you shouldn't aim for something that's so easily attainable, but rather push yourself to new heights by going for something intense. Here's an example: you're a rather thin body typed individual and your goal is to gain weight.
Your goal for 2012 is to gain 15 pound of muscle by the end of the year, but you only choose that goal because you know how easy it is to attain that goal within a year's time. This gives you the ability to take it easy and slack off since you have a whole year to take the "rollercoaster ride" of gaining muscle as you workout, and losing it as you slack off.
Now if you were to make your goal intense you would push your body to its limits and make yourself really have to work hard throughout the entire 2012 year.
An intense goal would be aiming to gain 40 pounds of muscle by the end of the year instead of going for the mediocre kind of goals that most individuals go for. Get the best out of your six pack ab goals and make them intense, because I promise your results will be well worth it.
Who wants goals that are plain boring? No one! We want goals that excite us and cause us to work harder because of our excitement. Yes, the "excitement effect" can play a dramatic role on how you succeed with you six pack ab goals.
How? When you're excited for something, do you have patience for it or do you want to do anything and everything to get to whatever it is you're excited about? Obviously patience isn't an option because you're so eager for that one thing.
That excitement causes you to work harder and do anything in your power to reach whatever it is you want. This is how your goal should be. If you set goals that excite you then you'll do anything you can to reach those goals, no questions asked.
This will cause you to work harder, stay consistent with your goals and remain untampered by everything life throws at you. Trust me, make your goals exciting and you'll have no problem reaching that goal in no time.
Temporary goals are ones that you make for yourself and have no desire of really reaching them. You make those goals just for the sake of making them to be like everyone else. These kind of goals will get you nowhere, because your goals need to be permanent.
You have to set goals that you know you'll follow and not give up halfway through. If you're aiming to set powerful six pack ab goals for the upcoming year, you have to make sure those goals are permanent ones that you'll stick with. When you set temporary goals, you're basically telling yourself that you have no intention of actually reaching them, but instead you're intentions are to quit halfway.
Don't be like everyone else out there, but set powerful, permanent goals that you know you'll get far with in the next upcoming year.
Your goals should be attainable. When you set goals that aren't realistic, you aren't going to get anywhere with those goals because you're setting yourself up for failure. What this means is that you have good intentions for reaching your goals, but there's just no way in reality that you can possibly accomplish this.
So you feel as if you can reach those goals, but when you do realize it's not possible to reach them, you lose confidence and give up. This happens too much when people set their goals and I don't want you failing with your goals.
So set goals that are attainable for you, set yourself up for success, and reach those goals. Keep in mind that attainable goals can also be extremely hard if you want to push yourself, so you don't have to set easy goals just to make them attainable.
Be smart about setting your goals by making them both attainable and difficult, and you'll see amazing results once you do reach those goals.
Concrete is tough, unmoving, and difficult to crack. This is the way your goals should be when you set them. Set your goals to be immovable and tough, because there will be times when you want to give up and move on to something different by changing those goals.
I don't want you cycling through different goals, but rather I want you to set goals that set you up for success in the future. Also, there will be times when people will try to bring you down or stop you from accomplishing your goals out of jealousy, and this is usually where you'll break down and give up.
I want to save you from this kind of situation, by telling you beforehand to establish goals that are unmoving and tough. This will set you up for success and prepare you for those kind of situation since you'll already have established concrete goals.
By setting goals like this, you'll notice yourself naturally mirror your goals, and become immovable and unchanging yourself.
If you can conceive it then you can do it. This is the philosophy you should follow when setting your goals for this year. Many people limit themselves or overestimate themselves because they don't have an understanding of what is conceivable and what isn't.
If you take the time and really ponder what is conceivable for you, then you'll be setting yourself up for success in the future with your goals. Set a graph for yourself that outlines the absolute least you want to achieve out of your goals and the absolute limit you have that is still conceivable.
Basically understand the absolute least you want out of your goals and understand that absolute most you can possibly do. By doing this, you'll have an understanding of what is conceivable for your goals, and what you can really accomplish.
Set yourself up for success and set goals that you can actually conceive because you'll see much more success in reaching your goals by doing this.
