We all want to crush goals! We most certainly want that dopamine rush that we get when we check another goal or another step off the list! It's all about our mind. Discipline, direction, accountability, and a way to check things off!!! That's it!

Ok, I know you’re saying that it cannot be that easy, and you’d be right…to a point. It takes setting SMART goals to begin with. Check out this blog post for more on setting smart goals. (INSERT LINK) Then it takes creating a clear plan to get from where you are now, to where you must be to achieve that goal you set for yourself, etc. Creating action steps after setting your goals is simply a step-by-step plan of what you are going to physically do to get yourself to your goal. 

Here’s my real life example:
I want to become financially stable. Currently I have credit card debt, car loans, a mortgage and zero savings. Ouch! That is no where near financially stable, is it? 
Here are my 2 financial goals, take note they are in the SMART format:
  1. Have $2,000 in savings by the end of 2021.
  2. Pay down 10% of my credit card debt by the end of 2021.
I have my goals, now how am I going to get there? My old mindset wouldn’t be thinking I could do it. So, action step #1: change my mindset to my finances and my abilities. 

Action Steps to Crushing My 2 Financial Goals:
To Change My Mindset
  1. Read a personal development book
  2. Do daily affirmations
To Obtain a Savings of $2,000 and Pay Down 10% of My Credit Card Debt by the end of 2021
  1. Create a monthly budget.
  2. Have a monthly meeting with hubby.
  3. Get rid of unnecessary expenses/subscriptions, etc.
  4. Sell things that are sitting around we no longer use.
  5. Hubby work overtime.
  6. Track all spending.
  7. Access credit card debt, write it all down.
  8. Take 5% of each paycheck and put it to savings.
  9. Take 5% of each paycheck and put it to credit card debt.

Those were 12 action steps, and the best part is those can be broken down into even smaller steps in you wanted to. Our minds love having small wins, and action steps every day, 3 is recommended, is one way to crush your goals!
