Good sub questions to ask yourself about this goal.
What will having this goal do for me? (gets you larger outcome and additional motivation)? What prevents me from having it right now? Is this realistic? (When answering this question you will most likely find something that you can do or change right away today to make getting your goal possible.)
Is this goal a manageable size or is it too large for a first step? What steps do I need to take in order to get this goal? What resources do I have available to me right now to assist me in getting my goal? Go and review five times when you were successful and see what you did –What did you say to yourself? What were you doing? How
did you look, sound and move? Find at least five times and feel how good it feels to be resourceful. When you’ve found some powerful times, move them closer, make them brighter and in full color to intensify those experiences for yourself.
When I have my goal, what will I be seeing, hearing, tasting, smelling and feeling that will let me know I have it? What will happen if you make the change (both good and bad)? What could (if it were to) go wrong?
Who else will this goal effect? Are there any possible negative consequences? Is there anyone who might possibly object to you making this change or having this goal?
When and where do you want this change (It is very important to specify time and the context)? What is going to happen when you make this change? What is -not going to happen when you make this change? What is going to happen if you don’t make this change (What is the consequence if you don’t make the change)? What is not going to happen if you don’t make this change?
You need the sensory evidence to know whether you are on or off target in getting your goal, and most importantly, you must do what is necessary to get your goal. Action is the most important step. You must make your plan and then do the plan. Each step along the way must be small enough to be able to accomplish easily and yet large enough to be motivating. (What will having this do for me? This question can provide the motivating factor).
5. Is it testable and measurable? You need a way to know when you are getting close to your goals, when you have arrived and when to stop. How will you know when you
have accomplished your goal?
