4 Main Training Objectives


One of the education pillars we will be focusing on this month elitefts is training goals.


Goals can often be very short-sighted or overreaching. In my experience, most people underestimate what they are capable of in the long term and overestimate what they can do in the long term.


I like to look at things from the perspective of objectives based on a solid base of core values. From here, the rest is just laying down the groundwork, looking at strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats (SWOT analysis).


To begin, there are a few other things that need to be understood. These include:

1. Don’t dwell on past mistakes. Just because you failed before doesn't mean it will happen again. It could simply mean you are one step closer. It is also important to know your past mistakes do not have to define who you are. I do “get” that others may never define you based on your past mistakes, but I ask, "Do people like that need to be in your life? Why would they want you in their life?" I also “get” that we all make some mistakes we may have to spend the rest of our lives making right. So be it, it’s still not a reason to move on… and forward.

2. Don’t sell yourself short, but don’t expect more than you are capable of (at the time). If you have to learn more, do it. If you need to network more, do it. If you need to grow more, do it. If you need to work more, do it. Don’t spend time arguing about your limitations when you could use that time working and fighting for what you want.

3. If you have no control over it, don’t worry about it. Simple! If you do have control then do something with it! Simple.

4. The reason to start with longer term objectives is that it lets you remove all emotion from it. The shorter term the goal, the more irrational one can be because it’s easier to let emotions sick into it.


Regardless of what you embark on, win or lose, fail or succeed, moving forward or backward, going up or falling down; when it all is done, you will be ok. The sooner you realize this (and I mean, really realize this), the happier you will be because happiness can only come from one person… You.
