Goal-setting is an effective way to drive results and experience success. So, here are a few reasons to consider setting personal performance goals not only in your martial arts practice but also beyond it:
1. Turn Vague Dreams into Concrete Goals.
We all have things that we dream of doing “someday.” Perhaps some of these dreams are related to martial arts. Others might center around your career. Or relationships. No matter what plans you have, how do you know when someday will get here? Will it ever arrive?
Setting a specific goal transforms a vague, unrealistic, or unattainable dream into a clearly defined objective that’s specific, realistic, and attainable. Setting goals helps us create concrete objectives for the future, making dreams more likely to actually happen.
2. Push Yourself in New Ways.
Sticking to a routine is great, but after a while, you might find yourself bored, stuck, or even unmotivated. A performance goal that challenges you and takes you out of your comfort zone can inspire you to push yourself in new ways.
Do you have a goal in mind right now that you’ve always wanted to tackle? Now could be the time to commit to that goal, take on a new challenge, and discover something new about yourself.
3. Do Things You’ve Always Wanted to Do.
Do you have a bucket list or some version of one? How will you get the items on your list crossed off and completed?
Setting goals can help you achieve the things you’ve always wanted to do. You don’t have to cross off everything on your list tomorrow or all at once. Instead, choose one item to start with and come up with a plan for how you can make it happen in the future. Adding a timeline and mini-goals or checkpoints to your plan can help make any item on your bucket list more attainable.
