What do you really want, what actions steps will most likely get you there, and are you committed to taking massive action – consistently and no matter what gets in the way? Although for many people the past year was the one they would rather forget, for me, and for my business, it was a smashing success. I realized that even though so many people set goals at the beginning of each year, relatively few end up achieving them. I think it’s mostly for three reasons.
First, many people lack CLARITY. They are confused about what they want to do and how they want to achieve it.
This confusion often seriously impacts their confidence in their ability to ever reach their dreams. Get clarity of what it is that you are really striving for and what it would look like and make you feel once you achieve it.
Second, most people seldom PLAN how to reach their goals far enough in advance.
NULL As a result they spend most of their time putting out fires and responding to emergencies instead of working towards what they really want to accomplish. Specific strategy and well defined action steps will help you get your goals faster.
Third, few people are brave enough to COMMIT to doing everything that needs to be done to reach their goals. Most quit and change direction at first sign of difficulties.
Once you make a choice to accomplish something, don’t get discouraged by small stuff, always keep the end result in mind and steadily move forward. Whether it’s your personal or business dreams, ask yourself what do you really want, what actions steps will most likely get you there, and then resolve to taking massive action – consistently and no matter what gets in the way. Personally, I also found it helpful to hire coaches, work with mentors, and always mastermind with other smart people. They help me gain clarity, develop and evaluate specific plans, and serve as accountability partners when I try to wiggle out of doing what I set out to do.
Nobody said you have to do it alone and creating a support system will allow you to stay focused, motivated and on track.
I hope you find this helpful in dreaming bigger and reaching for what you want this year and beyond.
