How to achieve your goals starts with a simple formula. No matter what your goals are it all starts with a dream. After that it's just training your mind to believe you can do it.
Naturally your goals must be realistic and you must put a strategy together so that you even have a chance at achieving your goals.
There is no sense in reinventing the wheel because if you follow the simple formula your chances of success will double.
More than likely you have heard of the term Smart Goals. If you have not heard the term then you might want to read about the term S.M.A.R.T goals by Brian Tracy. A simple Google Search will get you there.
The reason we asked you to perform a Google search is because setting goals and achieving them will require you to not be lazy.
Most goals that are long term require a lot of work. You must be up for the challenge. Nothing in life comes easy for most of us if your goal is worth pursuing.
Most people only look at the money aspect of their goals. The thing you should concentrate on is the real reason why you want that money goal.
Is it to have a quicker route to retirement, or buy a new home, or send your children to college. You see there is a reason why you want to make this money.
Money does not buy happiness. But it can sure help. So in order for you to achieve your goals you need to start out with a specific reason why you want to accomplish this.
Instead of saying you want to make $80,000 you might say you need to make $80,000 by 2025 so your child can attend college.
So once you have that specific goal that you want to accomplish it's time to put a strategy together so you can achieve your dream. Whatever your goal is it also must be realistic and achievable. Bring your passion to life.
Your not going to be able to save that $80,000 by working at the 7/11 convenient store unless you plan a way to have an additional income.
When it comes to money goals the internet is a great choice to increase your income. But you must beware. It will not happen over night.
Do not fall for the shiny object syndrome that we have seen so many people get.
Any online business takes time to develop, grow, and to learn the skills to even make a few dollars let alone $80,000.
No matter what your reason was to make that money lets dig in and breakdown the simple strategy to achieve that goal you had.
Maybe you do not have a money goal that's OK, just substitute your goal instead of using the money. Maybe you want to speak Spanish, travel the world, lose 50 pounds, or get in shape.
It really doesn't matter as long as you can wrap your mind around it. Even quitting smoking can be a challenge. It all starts inside that think head you have on your shoulders.
You have to get rid of the stinkin thinkin and believe you can do it. Why do you really want to achieve that particular goal.
Why people wait until this time of year is beyond me. I guess it's the coming of a New Year and people just want to do better for themselves. Anyhow lets get back to writing out this strategy to accomplish the goal we set out to achieve.
Here is the simple smart formula for those who did not Google Brian Tracy's post.
We already hit on being specific so now we need to write all this stuff down. Pull out that pad and take an hour or maybe two. Think about what you really want to accomplish during a specific time frame.
Get rid of all distractions, cell phones, and find yourself a nice quiet area. Get busy. Taking action is part of the process.
The next part is reversing everything and breaking it all down into smaller steps. You want to break everything down into smaller little goals that you must achieve in order to move on to the next smaller goal. Example:
Lets say you still want to achieve the $80,000 mark for whatever reason. You need that money in whatever time frame you have decided on. Let say you want that money in 5 years.
To make it interesting we'll say you do work at a convenient store and there is no way your going to be able to save that kind of money in 5 years or even 10 years.
So you decide to learn some new skills and start an online home business. Since you have very little money to invest in an online business you decide to take the affiliate marketing approach.
That way you do not need any inventory, no customer service, and you will not even have to provide shipping for the products you promote.
You may realize that you are going to need to learn some new skills and start building your brand. So part of your smart strategy is to learn the skills you need in a one years time frame. Maybe you only have a few hours a day to dedicate to this new venture.
Even if you take an entire year to learn the skills you need you still have another 4 years to achieve your $80,000 money goal.
Whatever that goal is just break it down into smaller achievable steps. We are still using the money goal of that $80,000 we need. So that gives us 4 years and if we break that down you will see that we only need to earn $20,000 per year.
That is less than $2000 a month. So really we only need to make less than $56 a day to achieve our goal and have success.
By breaking everything down into smaller bite size chucks enable our mind to clearly see that we can really accomplish what we have in mind.
No matter what it is if you just break it down into those smaller tiny little goals it allows your mind to look at it in a more positive matter.
Think about it. Say you want to lose 50 pounds over the next couple of years. That is 25 pounds per year. That is just over 2 pounds per month. It just makes it more realistic for your mind to comprehend.
But it is still up to you to take those smaller steps so you can accomplish those smaller goals.
You still are going to be required to take action. Without action nothing happens. Here is the best part of you taking action on your smart goal strategy. It now becomes a plan.
It's no longer is a plain strategy. Make it becomes part of you. Your plan to get what you want. You can see it and it starts to take on more meaning with those action steps. It all starts right between your ears.
Then write out your strategy and put your strategy in action so it becomes your plan. It's that simple.
