Setting your goals

When following dreams one of most important things is to set your goals right. Goals set right will help you UNDERSTAND the path you need to walk through more, it will be easier for you to PLAN your next steps, it will be easier for you to CONTROL if it’s going good, there will be LESS PRESSURE and it will be easier for you to BE PERSISTANT 😊
:::
Goals need to set with a SMART method 🤓. That’s right, SMART:
:::
S – Specific – Provide enough detail so that you know exactly what you should be doing. For example, stop setting goals such as „I need to lose 10kg in 3 months”. Make it more „I need to start eating more vegetables and workout 4 times a week” 🥦💪. This is more doable, you have more control over it (as you know exactly what you need to do) and there’s less pressure. Try sticking to it and just wait for results. Same with e.g. growing here on ig. Instead of setting a goal like „I need to get 1k new followers in a month” try „I need to post daily, take more colorful photos and interact with other users more”. Just do it and wait for the results 😉
:::
M – Measurable – A measurable goal has an outcome that can be assessed as a hit or miss ✔❌. So e.g. you can easily check whether you worked out 4 times this week or posted everyday.
:::
A – Achievable – An achievable goal has an outcome that is realistic given your current situation. Make sure you actually have the time 🕰 to workout 4 times a week or post daily. Don’t set such goal if you know you won’t make it.
:::
R – Realistic – Start small. If you set your goal too high („I need to lose 10kg in a month” or „I need to gain 10k followers in a month”) there’s too big pressure and you will give up quickly if you won’t see results you’d want 🤔
:::
T – Time Bound – Set a timeframe for the goal: „in three months”, „by six months”. Setting an end point for the goal gives you a clear target to achieve 🏁
:::
Now that you know how to set your goal right let me know what are your goals!
Mine are: eat healthy + workout 3-4 times a week, post 5 times a week + take more colorful photos and read at least 60 pages a week 😊

Relationships

It is now scientifically proven that healthy relationships 👫🏼 (both love ones and with friends and family) is the most important factor of being happy AND a key to a long life ⚠️⚠️⚠️ (yes, people live longer when they have good relationships).

Look around you and see who do you spend time with. Think if your friends really are your friends. Can you count on them?

Do you have a partner? Are you happily in love? Does she/he believe in you? Help you?

Life is too short to be around people who bring negative vibes into your life! Get rid of those prople and exclude them from your life. Don’t „be friends” with someone who doesn’t believe in you, who doesn’t have your back. This is not a friend! True friend will always be on your side, will always be there for you and will believe in you on matter what. Look for those kind of people!
It is so important to have someone like that! 😊

And same with a partner. Your wife/husband needs to belive in you, support you, be there for you not only in good times but especially in bad times. 🤗

I am SO lucky to have a friend in my husband. We keep saying that what is most important in our relationship is that we like each other. Not just love but like each other as another person. 💓
+ He takes care of me everyday 😊❤

It is 3 years that we are together (seems so much longer!) and we’ve been already living together for 2.5 years and been married for 10 months! 💑
Thank you for those 3 amazing years baby! ❤❤❤
P.S. MARLA is our nickname as a couple – MARcin + poLA

Good plan

I’d say that happiness is self-evolvment and making your dreams come true. Making dreams come true can be easy. What do you need?

  1. Motivation
  2. Determination
  3. Good plan
  4. Persistance
  5. Time management

If you are highly motivated to reach your goal and will combine it with a determination to succeed, a good plan broke down to small steps, and you will be persistent with those steps, there is no way you wouldn’t succeed. But to make it all work and not to stress about your plan you need good time management as well. What do I do? When I have a new idea/new project to work on I take a piece of paper and break it down to small steps. I write all of the steps down and then i’ll mark them one by one in my calendar. It is crucial to take one step at a time and to only focus on 1 part. Otherwise you’ll be stressing out about the whole project and how far you still have got to go. Don’t think about the end line. Think about that 1 step. When you make a good plan all you need to do is take a look in your calendar in the morning and see what one small step you had planned for today and do that. For example, if you want to get a job you’ve been dreaming of, you should start with  your resume. Make it step 1 to make sure it’s good, that you’ve got your strong skills featured. Then you should make a reserach about that certain company. See what they do, what they need, who do they need. Later on you could try networking. If you live close to their office you can go there during lunch time and maybe talk to someone as he/she is leaving for break. Another great way to network is LinkedIn. It’s a great platform where you can easily see who works where. After getting your resume ready, having your research and networking done you should write an email to the company with specific information that they want to hear (that’s why research what they need is very important). If you managed to get to know somebody from that company ask him/her if they can recommend you to the boss. After that call the office. Meet with somebody there. Etc. Etc. Just one step at a time.

If your goal is to lose 10kg try writing down how will you change your diet day by day (you should do it with a dietician though), what new excercises will you do to burn fat, to get more cardio. Etc. Etc.

I’m not gonna write down each scenario for you now, I just want to show you what you need to do. Make a plan. The more steps the better. Then just focus on it and be persistant.

You will probably think „Come on Pola, it’s not that easy”. Well it’s not gonna happen overnight, it probably won’t happen in a month. Some goals will need more steps and some less. But before you tell me it doesn’t work, juts try it out and see it for yourself. Maybe you’re wrong.

 

So what is your goal? What do you dream of? If you need some help with your plan don’t hesitate to ask me. I’m here for you. I do think I have good ideas and always try to think outside the box J

Motivation

Determination

Determination. This is what’s most important when trying to succeed. If you do small step towards your goal but you keep on doing it everyday you WILL SUCCEED!
There’s just no other way.
I love that feeling when I lie in bed in the evening thinking that I did something towards my dream. I have been doing that since 2012 and I really did make my dreams come true but I’ll tell you all about it in some time as it’s still not 100% ready. Yes, it can take several years to get to your goal but if you’re persistant you’ll get there!
I believe in you! 😊
