What are your personal goals for participating in a pageant? Or, why do you want to win the “Miss” title you are competing for? Is it the scholarships, the personal development, to promote an issue you are passionate about, or all of the above?
Some areas of goal setting to consider for a successful pageant competition can be:
Style: fitness and appearance; how you present yourself and how you may be perceived by others; how you represent the local pageant organization, community, state and national pageant systems as a contestant.
Service: your platform and community service
Scholarship: keeping your grades up and pursuing financial awards for further education
Success: reaching small goals that lead to bigger goals
What are some of the goals you have set for yourself?
Once you have identified your “Why?” It is time to transform your goal into actionable steps that will yield results. Actionable steps are the daily, weekly and monthly tasks that need to be accomplished in order to achieve your goal. These tasks are specifically geared toward helping you become your best self in a given area. The objective is to turn your goals into manageable, realistic steps. This is done using a method known as SMART goal setting. SMART goals are short and long term goals that are:
T- time bound
An example of a SMART goal is as follows:
Goal: To teach goal setting
SMART Goal: To utilize TheOrganizedMiss.com as an educational platform for young women living the “Miss” lifestyle and to share tools to assist them in setting and achieving their goals.
Hopefully this guideline to SMART Goal setting has given you some new tools to help you reach your goals. I am including a free printable entitled “Smart Goal Setting Steps” to help you get started. Good luck and reach for the stars!
Remember: You are your only competition!
