We’ve all got fresh aspirations, visions and dreams for the new year; some of us call them “new year resolutions” while others simply refer to them as “goals”. Whatever the case, new dreams are crucial for a better life. Herein is the most helpful piece for the actualization of you goals:
Goals are the routes to success. Every accomplishment begins with a goal, either consciously or unconsciously. Success is never achieved without goals; goals precede success. The realization of every dream is in goal setting. Anyone can achieve success in anything he sets out to do as far as he can plan. But just how do you set and accomplish goal? Here is one of the best and most effective goal-setting plans you will ever learn:
Secret One: Decide exactly what you want in different aspects of your life and write it down. Ask yourself, “What achievement would be worth your very best effort?” “ What would you attempt if you knew it was impossible to fail?” Make it measurable, specific, clear and detailed. Write out all the benefits and advantages of achieving your goal. Once the list goes between 50 and 100 your goal becomes unstoppable.
Secret Two: Attach a deadline for the achievement of your goal. If it is a large goal, ensure you break it down into smaller parts and set sub-deadlines.
Secret Three: Make a list of everything you will have to do (action steps) to achieve this goal. As you think of new items, add them to your list until it is complete.
Secret Four: Organize your list of action steps into a plan. Note that 20% of the
things that you do will account for 80% of your results. Therefore, organize your plans on
the basis of two elements, priority and sequence. If you do not set clear
priorities, you will “major in minors” and spend much of your time doing small
and irrelevant tasks that do not help you to achieve the goal. Determine what has to be done before something else can be done in order of relevance.
Secret Five: Identify the key obstacles that might hold you back from achieving this goal. Identify the most important constraint or limitation holding you back and then focus on removing that obstacle. It could be a certain amount of money, or a major resource. It could be
additional information you require. It could be an additional skill, character or habit that you need. It could be the assistance of one or more people. Whatever it is, identify it clearly and work to eliminate it immediately.
Secret Six: This is perhaps the most important in this process. Once you have determined your goal, developed your plan, attached your deadline, and identified your major obstacle, take action immediately toward the achievement of your goal. Nothing moves until you move; step out in faith. Do something immediately to start your process of goal attainment.
Secret Seven: Do something every day that moves you to toward your most
relevant goal. Develop a habit of getting up each morning, planning your day and
then doing something, anything, that moves you at least a step closer towards your most important goal. This habit of doing something every single day that moves you toward an important goal develops within you the power of momentum. Daily action deepens your
belief that the goal is achievable, and activates the Law of Attraction. As a result,
you begin moving faster and faster toward your goal, and your goal begins moving
faster and faster toward you. Following this steps makes you a super-achiever before long! Plan and succeed!
