Help Your Child Use His Imagination for Successful Goal Setting

Isn't it great how kids love to use their imagination? They are so much better than most of us grown ups at seeing things in their mind, at experiencing things vividly with thought alone.

Using your imagination is such a powerful tool for goal setting - so it's a really good idea to encourage your child to use his imagination, and especially to day dream about his goals.

Some questions you ask about your child's goals, to help your child experience his goals in his mind as vividly as possible:

"What does your goal look like?"

"What does it sound like? What do other people say about your goal?"

"What does it feel like when you've achieved your goal?"

For even more impact, you can suggest to your child that he sits comfortably and closes his eyes while you ask him these questions.

Doing this will teach your child that his imagination is a powerful tool, and help him to form a habit of using it in a positive way that will help him with achievements, large and small, in the future.

Happy Goal Setting with your Kids!
