The concept of goal setting is very easy to understand. Applying the principles of goal setting is somewhat more difficult.
I think the most challenging part, of goal setting, is actually identifying and stating your “MAJOR GOAL”. It is relatively easy identifing small goals, you know, the goals that can be accomplished almost through the course of your daily activities. It is the big goal, the one that you really don’t want to talk about because it can seem overwhelming, or you’re not sure how you’re going to accomplish the goal, or the dreaded fear of failure. I have, and continue to face all of these challenges. Truth be told, on some occasions I have even incorporated “excuses” for putting off stating my major goal. I have used: I’m tired, I don’t have enough time, I don’t have enough money, and “yes” I’m not good enough. We may even self-sabotage ourselves, by not giving the pursuit of the goal 100% of our effort.
What stops us from stating the major goal – Risk. After all, by stating the goal we are putting ourselves out there.
So, I’m going to take a risk and put my major goal out there:
MGB GOAL STATEMENT:
To Be the Most Supportive, Encouraging and Results orientated Fitness and Health Training Facility in Warren County.
There it is. How am I going to get there?, I honestly don’t know. That is where you come in. Another part of setting goals is asking for help when you need it. Asking for help is a skill in and of itself and one that I am not very good at
There are two things I need some help on:
1. If possible, could send the link of my blog site to any of your friends, who are interested in fitness.
2. I have a couple of questions I would like some feedback on. a. What is the biggest motivator that keeps you active? b. Do you prefer small gyms, or mega gyms? c. Is there any type of exercise that you enjoy, but is not well supported with facilities or options in Warren County? (Example – For me it is outdoor skating – there are few options available for people who enjoy skating over running and biking) d. If you have ever worked with a person trainer what have they done well, and what have they not done well?
