What is a Big Gorgeous Goal?
Most of us have heard of SMART goals (specific, measurable, achievable, realistic, time-bound), but what is a big gorgeous goal? What makes a big gorgeous goal unique?
Well, the thing about big gorgeous goals is that they look different for everyone, so the question becomes, what does a big gorgeous goal mean to you? For me, it’s something I want to achieve that’s a little bit scary, a little bit out of my comfort zone. It will probably require a leap of faith in yourself as you set it and pursue it. I like to think of a big gorgeous goal as reaching for the stars.
Big gorgeous goals are meant to be made, and you are meant to make them! It’s important to keep in mind that they aren’t always a destination like a SMART goal is; if I only get part of the way to my big gorgeous goal, I still feel successful because I’ve stepped out of my comfort zone and grown in some way.
We often end up with a big gorgeous goal by starting with a dream. That dream takes shape and becomes a goal, and we usually also find something holding us back from achieving it.
That’s only natural! The key is how we handle that. This is where it becomes important to quiet the little voice in your head that tells you that you can’t do it; instead of listening to that voice, I challenge you to grab a notebook, flip to an open page, and write down your thoughts about what could be holding you back.
Consider taking some time to answer questions like these:
- What fears and doubts are you wrestling with? (Ex. doubting your abilities, fear that your network isn’t there to help, etc.)
- What skill sets might you need to acquire?
- What kind of team will you need?
Taking time to contemplate these questions will help you better see the path toward your big gorgeous goal and what it involves. But the most important part of a big gorgeous goal is this: just go for it!! You are meant to have and hold your own big gorgeous goals and to go out into the world and chase them.
