  • The Power of Goal Setting

    A study done at Harvard Business School wanted to look at the importance of setting goals. They found 84% of graduates had no specific goals at all, 13% had goals but were not written down, and only 3% had clear written goals and a strategy to accomplish them.

    The results were shocking – the 3% who had written goals and a strategy were earning on average 10x as much as the other 97% combined! [1]

    If you’re going to be successful at anything you must have written goals and a strategy to get what you want. One of my favorite success coaches of all time, Zig Ziglar, says, “If you aim at nothing, you will hit it every time.” What are your life goals? What are your health goals? Do you have a clearly defined plan to achieve what you want? Do you even know what you’re aiming for?

    If not, life coach Brian Tracy says the four main excuses people make as to why they don’t have written goals are:

    They didn’t realize the importance of goals
    They didn’t know how to write goals
    Afraid to fail
    Fear of rejection
    Don’t let these little excuses get in the way of you achieving and living your dreams. I’m going to address the first two excuses below, and as for the last two, my mom always used to say, “If you shoot for the moon and miss, you’ll still be with the stars.” If you set a goal to lose 10 lbs and only lose 8… who cares, it’s better than losing none!

    Here’s what you need to do when setting goals:

    1) Write or type your goals down on paper

    2) Make sure your goals are clearly defined and specific

    3) Set a date of when your goals should be achieved by

    4) Make your goals measurable

    5) Put your goals up where you can see them everyday (bathroom mirror)

    6) Create a strategy for achieving your goals

    7) Determine WHY you need to achieve your goal (what’s your inspiration)

    Example:

    Goal: Lose 20 lbs

    Strategy: Follow the Healing Foods diet, eat a coconut berry smoothie for breakfast, a salad for lunch, and meat and steamed vegetables for dinner. Exercise 3x a week on Mon, Wed, Fri @ 7:00am (weight training 20 minutes and burst training 10 minutes)

    Deadline: Lose 20 lbs in 40 days by June 30th

    Once it’s written, put your goals up somewhere you can see them everyday like your bathroom mirror. Also, if you fall off track and eat a whole pizza and half a tub of Rocky Road… then just jump right back on track. It’s ok.

    If you want to increase your chance of success even more, get an accountability partner to do this with you.

    So let the goal setting begin! Aim for success, and even if you miss, you’re still a star!

    What are your goals? What is your strategy for achieving them?

    Alhamdullilah! Also, plan the day before and say InshaAllah, such a task will be complete tomorrow!
    8 powerful habits to succeed


    1. Wake up early!
    2. Do it as soon as possible, you could die tonight so make the best of today
    3. Remember your life is unique, don't compare yourself to others. Use that jealousy as an energy to make your life a success"
    4. Have healthy habits. Set a time each day to exercise. Try with the mindset you're only going to do some jumping jacks for 5 seconds and the next thing you know, you're doing a workout!
    5. Read, read, read. Ponder over the Qur'an, learn more. Put the idiot box (TV) away
    6. Take note. Desires make slaves out of kings and patience makes kings out of slaves.
    7. Results aren't just worldly. Results are also about perseverance, retaining dignity, being honest, being honourable, doing good unto others.
    8. Always encourage others especially our brothers and sisters, let them know making mistakes is okay, we all make mistakes, do not ever undermine them and make them feel incompetent. This is also true for the dunya, so what if they don't get the maths sum right the first time, that is what LEARNING is.

      The Power of Goal Setting

      I read one of his books, I don't recall the title but it had rough drawings in it such as some steps with a word written on each step, etc. Quite a humourous book if I recall, from the sixties. I found it in an old antiquated book shop for £3.
