You want good health, so you can go after your big dreams. I have just the thing for you this week. It’s the S.L.A.M. technique for setting health goals and achieving them.
S = SPECIFIC
You may state that your goal is to lose 20 lbs. But that’s not a goal. You have to be more specific. Now be more specific by stating for the next 2 weeks I will speed walk around the track during my lunch breaks every day. This is a goal- It’s specific, time line, you can track progess, you can achieve it!
L = LIMIT
Decide on 1 goal. Limit your Goal choice to Just One. Too many goals is why many people fail to achieve. Focus your attention on One goal at a time get it done then move to the next goal.
A = ACHIEVEABLE
On a scale of 1 to 10 what is the highest probability you will achieve this goal? If your number doesn’t rank high enough – like 7 -10 go back to your goal and structure it differently- maybe it wasn’t specific enough or not meaningful enough.
M = MEASUREABLE
What’s the criteria that proves you are making progress toward achieving your goal. Your body may be a little sore from the increased level of exercise. The “weigh in” scale reads a lower weight. You’re feeling good and looking good in your clothes.
Okay this is it. I hope you are blessed with this health goal setting and achieving technique. Apply it to your life to build: Confidence and Conviction to go after your big dreams achieving one goal at a time.
