The Goal Setting Blueprint
Why is goal setting important? Because without goals you don't go anywhere!
Whenever you see anything worthwhile being done anywhere, it's because someone is behind it with a passion, a belief and a goal!
When it comes to your personal life and your business, goal setting can make the difference between mediocrity and excellence and accomplishment.
Much is said about goal setting.
But just how do you set and accomplish goals?
Is there some goal setting formula or strategy that can be employed to increase your chances of success?
What follows is a blueprint for success in goal setting.
The Goal Setting Blueprint
STEP 1. Develop a DESIRE to achieve the goal. The desire must be intense. How do you intensify desire? Sit down and write out all the benefits and advantages of achieving your goal. Once the list goes between 50 and 100 your goal becomes unstoppable.
STEP 2. WRITE your goal down. Once it goes into writing it becomes substantial and starts etching itself into your subconscious.
STEP 3. IDENTIFY 1) the obstacles you will need to overcome, 2) the help you will need to acquire, e.g. knowledge, people, organizations. In each case write them out in a clear list and analyze them.
STEP 4. DEADLINE your goal. Analyze where you are now in relation to the goal and then measure how long you will reasonably need to complete the goal. Then set the latest outside date.
STEP 5. Take all the details of steps 3 and 4 and make a PLAN. List all the activities and prioritize them. Rewrite the list, optimize it, perfect it.
STEP 6. Get a clear MENTAL PICTURE of the goal already accomplished. Make the mental image crystal clear, vivid in the mind's eye. Play that picture over and over in your mind.
STEP 7. Back your plan with PERSISTENCE and resolve. Never, never, never give up even when you hit setbacks.
Follow those steps religiously and you will be successful at goal setting.
