Goal Setting Forms

Let's prosper with these goal setting forms!

Setting goals using goal setting forms can turn an almost overwhelming task into an uplifting, life-long rewarding experience.

Motivational “giant” Zig Ziglar said “You were born to win, but to be a winner you must plan to win, prepare to win, and expect to win.” Goal setting forms can walk you through the process. Let’s get started.

Your goals need to be realistic, somewhat stretching, well-defined, measurable and have a deadline. Most importantly, your goals must be ones that you’re seriously passionate about. Let’s go into a little more depth;

Be realistic

Set big goals, but not unachievable goals. If you’re a 5’6” fifty-nine year old, you won’t play in the NBA. Be honest with yourself. Other than “real” limitations, don’t rule out anything. Napoleon Hill said “What the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve.”

Stretch yourself

If your goal is too easy, if it’s a “no-brainer,” you’ve accomplished little or nothing. Here’s Zig Ziglar again; “What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals.” Real success requires stretching yourself and your abilities.

Well-defined goals

“Being rich” is not a well-defined goal. “I’m going to have a gray ’57 Caddy parked in the circular driveway of my 10,250 square foot house in the central California foothills” is well-defined. Spell it out, exactly, precisely, in complete detail.

Your goals have to be measurable

How do you measure “getting in shape?” “Losing 20 pounds” is a a measureable goal. Slimming to a 32 inch waist is a goal. Fitting into a size 4 dress is a goal. Know where you’re starting, what your “milestones” are and where the “finish line” is.

Set a deadline

Not only should you set a starting date, but you also need a deadline. Without an expected completion date, as well as “checkpoints” along the way, any sense of urgency will be missing. Which would “spur” you on – losing 10 pounds by the 20th? Or losing 10 pounds someday?

Passion, passion, passion

If you’re “half-hearted” about a goal, forget it; don’t waste your time or energy. The big goals you set must be ones that you cannot see yourself living without. You “know” you were meant for this. You’ve thought of little else for as long as you can remember. There is no other option; you must and you will reach it! If you don’t feel that way about your really big goals, keep searching.

Are you ready to begin? Take as much time and paper as you need; this is important.

Goal setting form

What is the first “big” goal you’re going to set? Write it out in as much detail as possible.



Is it realistic? Do you have the skills and talents needed? Or can you learn them?



Can you see yourself accomplishing your goal? Are you totally passionate about it?



What is the first, small step in achieving your goal? When are you going to take that step?



How will you measure your progress? What are your “milestones?”



When will you reach your goal? What is the exact date you’ll proclaim “I did it!”
