Start by setting an end goal - something you would like to achieve that you may not have felt confident about, but would have a big impact for you, now or long term. Then use the model and the guidelines below to work out your route.
Mindset and Motivation
· What mind-set will support you?
· What is your motivation to keep going?
· Why is the goal important to you, what will you gain?
· Remember to celebrate your successes, your strengths and your skills!
· Action takes courage as you move out of your comfort zone
· Know that you are likely to feel discomfort, it’s normal. It will get easier!
· Use your learning from the actions, to adapt the goals as you progress
Strengths and Skills
· What existing attributes, skills or strengths help you?
· What additional skills may you need?
· What resources or support may help you?
· What obstacles may occur and how will you tackle them? (internal and external)
· Regarding yourself with curiosity and compassion, how will you disempower your inner critic?
Energising End Goal
· Be clear - Make the goal Specific, Measureable, Attainable, Realistic, Timed
· Make it energising, what could the specific benefits or consequences be?
· How does it contribute to the bigger or long-term picture?
· Break your goal into small manageable steps, set mini energising goals
· If you feel you have tried and ‘failed’ can you identify what worked and what didn't work?
· What can you celebrate and what have you learnt from that?
· What will you do differently next time?
· Would it be helpful to reframe your thinking about the goal?
Lastly: Visualise your success Imagine you have the best outcome you could possibly have hoped for:
· How will you know it has been successful? What is happening, who is there, what are you seeing, hearing, doing? Allow yourself to enjoy how good it feels.
