Goal setting is an important part of your recovery. It is also an important part of life. Having a goal, with intention provides direction and a clear focus on what is important to you. It gives clarity in decision making and control over your rehabilitation, and ultimately your future.
First consider what you want to achieve, and then commit to it.
Set SMART (specific, measurable, attainable, relevant, and time-bound) goals that motivate you. Goals are more deliberate than desires and momentary intentions. Therefore, setting goals means that a person has committed thought, emotion, and behaviour towards attaining the goal.
Of course, these goals need to come from within you. We will guide you and provide you with the necessary tools and advice to assist, but that motivation needs to come from your drive to want to get better. ‘That old saying, ‘we can give you the bullets, but you need to fire them!’
By attaining and achieving your goals, it will give you a sense of personal satisfaction and purpose in life. We can’t wait to be apart of that journey with you.
