Sometimes you may feel like you're really good at smart goal setting. But sometimes you might not reach your goal — and you wonder why you're not hitting them more frequently.

It's really frustrating to have goals fail. Learning how to use the Law of Attraction might help you achieve your goals more often.

In order for the Law of Attraction to be successful, it's all in how your goal is constructed.

It turns out that there really is a formula after all. It's been used for ages with successful business leaders and I'll include it here so that you can use it, too: they're called SMART goals.

  • S: Specific
  • M: Measurable
  • A: Attainable
  • R: Realistic
  • T: Time-based

Let's talk about a few key factors in success.

"Success-full" people are good at resourcing, managing their discomfort during transitions, setting boundaries, and understand how to set goals that use the Law of Attraction and its main success center (your unconscious mind).

All of these items have a step-by-step process, so let's look at the goal design below.

Here's how to use the Law of Attraction to help you complete your smart goals instead of falling short:

1. Your goal must be specific. Really specific.

"I want to be my ideal weight" is not specific. "I want to be 130 pounds, toned, healthy, and fit by July 21, 2020 through eating smaller meals, increasing my exercise, and becoming more educated about food," is specific.

If you can't name it in a sentence or two, you can't get it!

2. Your goal must be measurable. No "feelings."

How will you know that you have achieved your goal? You see the scale number or your jeans are looser, or you've lost three inches on your waist, etc.

Your goal must also be for you, because unless you want it, it won't happen!

3. Your goal must be attainable, and as if it's now.

If you're only making $30,000/year now, setting an annual income of $1,000,000 probably isn't attainable as your first financial goal.

If you've never gone to the gym steadily before, setting a goal to go five days a week probably isn't attainable, but walking three times a week certainly is. When you've mastered that, then set a goal to go to the gym for three days a week.

You also need to put your goal in the present, even though it may be grammatically incorrect.

I am enjoying ... I am celebrating ... I am ...

4. Your goal must be realistic.

A woman once told me her goal was to have her body process sugar like protein. Not only is that unrealistic, but by current body designs, she would have been dead if she achieved it.

Make your goals realistic, and build on them.

5. Your goal must have an end date.

Note that the goal I listed earlier had a timeframe on it. You must put an end date on your goal, otherwise, it's just a wish.

Moving toward a goal is different than moving away from your pain point. Toward wealth is different than away from poverty. Very different.

Make sure your goal only has positive language and only describes exactly what you want.

Once you have a goal then you can work from the goal backward until you're in the present.

This allows you to create a step-by-step plan. All good plans need resources.

Look around your world, listen to what friends and family are saying. Who can you tap into as a resource to assist you? Announce your goal to your family!

Give people an opportunity to assist in creating your success. Success is fun for everyone!

If you don't know what to do, make sure you keep asking until you do. This is where a coach can make all the difference in the world. Coaches work toward specific goals with clients, so make sure someone is coaching and cheering you on.
