Hey loves, it’s another month again and I’m so excited because I can’t wait for this year to come to an end. Who’s with me?

A new month is a breath of fresh air and it’s always exciting because you don’t know what the month will bring. There are a lot of opportunities and blessings coming your way this month. (Say an amen if you believe 😃)

Last month I was really excited for the opportunity the month could bring and I must say it did bring a lot of good things despite the bad. The point is, you just have to believe and work to get it. In the last month, I wrote a couple of things that I wanted to get done and I’m glad that I could achieve them. Writing my goals down here really made me accountable so you should definitely write down your goals somewhere and review them from time to time.

I know a lot of us have goals and dreams that we all we love to see accomplished, you can definitely achieve them. I know this year really cut some goals short but that doesn’t mean that you can’t get them going. Despite the whole thing with the pandemic some will still tell you this is their best month so far. You know why? Because they are working for what they want irrespective of what is going on. Believe me, it’s hard to stay motivated sometimes or even bother to get things done especially when you feel like all hope is gone and life just keeps on throwing stones at you that you are tired of dodging so now you’ve just resolved to letting it hit you, it happens. There are some days that you get tired of working and just feel so frustrated and tired with life, don’t give up, rest if you have to for as long as you want, refresh your mind, review your goals, plan your life and come back with a bang.

I just want to encourage someone out there struggling with something. Calm down, breathe, you’ve got this. Don’t give up on you, everything you want is at the other side of you not giving up. Your current location is not your destination, you will surely get to where you are headed, have patience, good things take time. That your idea is going to work out well for you, your business is going to boom, your blog is going to grow, your life is going to go in the direction you want it to. Just don’t give up.

TEN GOAL SETTING QUESTION TO ASK YOURSELF.

1. WHAT DO YOU WANT?

To have a goal you must have an intention, a wish that you want to grant yourself. You must have something you want to accomplish and this may be in the various areas of your life. So what do you want?

2. WHAT MOTIVATED YOU TO CREATE THOSE GOALS?

You need to know your why. Why did you set those goals, what are you hoping to achieve? What is the motivation behind those goals? You need to have a strong reason behind setting those goals and be sure of it. You could set those financial goals because you want to have a certain amount by a certain period of time. Know your why as this will help you pursue your goals.

3. WHERE DO YOU WANT TO GET TO?

Where do you want to get it to with those goals, what are you hoping to accomplish? We all set goals for a particular reason, we all have a destination in mind. What’s yours?

4. HOW WILL YOU GET THERE?

Now that you have set those goals, what are you going to do to get there? You simply can’t set goals and lay on your bed thinking that they will just come into existence simply because you wrote them. You have to get up and work. If you want to loose weight, you will know that you have to go on diet, visit the gym amongst others. Make a list of things you have to do to get to your destination.

5. WHAT IS YOUR ACTION PLAN?

For any goal to come into existence, there must be a plan and action must be taken on it? What is your action plan? What do you want to do to achieve those goals? Think about it, plan it and take action on it.

6. WHAT DOES YOUR GOAL NEED?

What do you need to get that goal going? What resources do you need to get? Whose help do you need to have? Write them down. What are the books you need to read, the courses you need to take? Write out all the things you need and also people that can help you, it could be a coach, a family member, a friend, an expert or mentor. Just make a list of people that can help you attain your goals.

7. WHEN DO YOU WANT IT?

When do you want to see those goals and wishes in reality? What is the time frame for those goals? Your goals can be short term, medium term or long term. Let your goals have a time frame. How many months or years will it take you to get what you want?

8. WHAT ARE YOU WILLING TO GIVE UP TO GET IT?

What are you going to sacrifice to get to where you are headed. It could be your time, your work or your money. What habit are you going to stop to get those goals. Sit down and think about it.

9. WHAT IS HOLDING YOU BACK?

We all have limiting beliefs, tackle them when you are setting your goals. What do you think is stopping you from doing that thing you want to do, what is stopping you from being the person you want to be? I’m going to take a wild guess and tell you it’s you. Stop waiting for the perfect time, there’s no such thing as perfection. Other things that can be stopping you is your time and money and don’t worry about that. They will fall into place when you decide to step up for yourself and let go of your limiting beliefs.

10. ARE YOU WILLING TO FAIL AND TRY AGAIN?

Something will surely come up. You’d face obstacles at one point or another, you will fail and fall but are you willing to stand up everytime you fall? Are you willing to keep on going no matter how difficult it gets? Whatever obstacle that comes your way, one thing I know for sure is that, you will surely overcome them and succeed a long as you don’t give up.

So those are the questions you need to ask yourself when setting goals and you should also remember to review your goals from time to time.

I just wanted to drop this here to motivate myself and whoever comes across this. You’ve got this, you will surely overcome. The blessings that will come your way this month will be uncountable. Whatever you do and wherever you go, you will find favour so don’t give up. Your potential is endless, there’s more to you than what meets the eye. Have a blessed week and month. I wish you all the best in your endeavors.

    https://www.femaleoriginal.com

    1. You should ask yourself these questions and be honest with yourself. It will definitely help you out.

    2. Yes, you should ask yourself

  6. Actually, this is an inspiring writing. You’ve written really well. Thanks for this

    1. Thanks. I’m glad you find it inspiring. 🤗

  7. This is really well written and a blog that will help lots of people! I think a big one is your motivation behind the goal. There is no point doing a goal purely because someone else tells you it’s good, you need an instrinic motivation behind it, and that will help you follow through with the goal when things get tough 🙂

    Thanks for sharing!

    1. Yes. We need to know our why behind our goals because they can keep us going when things are tough. And our goals have to be ours unless we wouldn’t put much effort into it. Thanks for the comment. Have a blessed month. 🤗

  8. It’s so important to digest your goals once you set them! I think a lot of people set goals for themselves and then that’s where they stop. Like, it’s so beneficial to look into the why’s and how’s of your goals to really understand and help reach them! Thank you for this post, great points here!

    1. Yeah, most people set goals and not do anything about them because they don’t have a strong why. It’s also important to know what to do to attain those goals. I’m glad you liked the post, thanks for reading 🤗

  9. What a helpful post! I think a lot of people write goals but don’t go back to evaluate or measure success. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Yes, we need to go back and review them from time to time. 💯

  10. lovely post as always!
    iv’e been keeping a journal for gratitude and monthly goals.
    i shall follow you on pinterest as well 🙂
    take care

    ~ B

    1. Thanks. It’s nice that you keep a gratitude journal and one for your goals too. It can be of good help to you when you are feeling down to go over the things you are grateful for and when you are not motivated to do anything to review the questions and go after your motivation and why. Thanks ♥️

  11. The last one is really important because no matter how great your plan is towards your goal, it all comes down to how much you want it? The passion and drive needs to be there.

    1. Yes, you need to have a burning passion for what you want. Thanks for reading.🤗

  12. Adedoyin wisdom adeola

    Ya…
    Thank you..I must confess..dis write up was not done only by just thinking alone…
    I found it helpful…and mind driven… thank u❤️❤️

    1. I’m so glad you found it helpful. Do have a great month. ♥️

  13. A really good list and all questions definitely worth asking when one’s determined to reach a goal. Figuring out the ‘why’ already sets one off really well. Everything else tends to follow once you figure that out 🙂

    1. Yes they are worth asking and knowing your why can be a big drive. Thanks for reading 🤗

    1. Thanks, a plan is definitely needed to activen your goals.

  17. Great questions! I think the most important or most vital is “what do you want”… once that is answered than the rest should fill in the blanks by itself.

    1. Yes, knowing what you want is the first step because it brings up the other questions and answers.

  18. Thank you for doing this post. These 10 questions are so important and I will use them as I plan my workshops

    1. You’re welcome 😊

  21. These are such great questions to keep in mind! The failing and trying again is definitely where I struggle

    1. Yeah, we all struggle with that but the thing is we will surely fail at some point but you have to keep on trying till you get it. 💯

  22. Well said, its just that there are somethings that you cannot really fail at and try again. Really appreciate the post. Happy new month!

    1. I’m glad you like the post.
      Let me know what you mean by things we fail that we can’t try again.
      Do have a great month.♥️

      1. I mean for example I am on some scholarship and my final submissions are close and I am stressing out, because I can’t resits if I fall them because the scholarships doesn’t cover resits. If you get what I mean

        1. I don’t really get but be calm and do your best. You’ve got this, you won’t fail. 💪

  23. Great advice! Gotta have goals and stay on track. Thanks for sharing,

    1. Yes, having goals helps you stay on track. Thanks for reading.

  24. This is a great post! I think it’s important to ask yourself, what’s holding you back, because, we might think that we’ve got the situation under control or not, because we haven’t really taught much about our strengths and weeknesses that can affect our goal setting. Thanks for this, nianni! 😌💕

    1. Thanks. We really need to know what’s holding us back and let go of limiting beliefs so we can have the right mindset to achieve our goals. Thanks for reading Elle ♥️

    2. Hi, I tagged you in a post

  25. Hi, I have nominated you for the Sunshine Blogger Award. Please accept the nomination. https://penofhearts.com/2020/09/04/sunshine-blogger-award-3/

    1. Wow. Thanks, I’ll go check it out 🤗

  26. Love how you made a structure for setting goals with these questions!

    1. Thank you, I’m glad you love it. ♥️

  27. Great post, it makes you think!

  28. These are really great questions to ask yourself. You need to know the answers to all of it. If you dont you will be running around like a chicken with its head cut off.

  29. Nianni, I absolutely love this post and believe you are helping tons of people overcome their roadblocks and obstacles to achieving their goals. Your encouraging spirit has touched my heart today. The opening paragraphs really spoke to me, thank you! Here lately it has been tough to press through and trust that better is coming. When you work so hard to see something come to pass, and it isn’t working out as you expected, it’s too easy to get discouraged.
    It’s true, our dreams won’t just magically appear out of thin air. Faith, mixed with intention and vision, with some hard work thrown in are the cure for the not happenings of life. 🙂
    I agree with you about sacrifice too. We don’t always like this one, but the reality is, we will have to leave something behind. It may mean doing some tough inner emotional pain work. Or, it could be leaving dead-end relationships.
    Excellent post all around. Thank you for all you do to uplift, encourage, and inspire.
    💕 ~ Holly – https://wholenesshaven.com

    1. Holly, first I must say, I really appreciate the comment. I’m glad you love the post and I hope a lot of people come across the post and learn a thing or two. Yes, it’s so easy to get discouraged when we feel things aren’t working for us but we need to know that all things are working for our good.

      Yes, we have to work towards our dream, have faith in it, ourselves and God.

      Thank you, I’m glad you found it uplifting and encouraging. Your blog is really nice as well. ♥️🤗
