Any one can make goals. There are hundreds of books and seminars on how to do it. And you could follow them to the letter for a little while... and then, you'll get burned out, bored, frustrated, distracted and most likely quit.
When you are setting goals whether they are for the day or the rest of your life, you have to know your "Why". Why do you want this goal?
Why is it important to you?
What's in it for you?
What do you get out of it?
Think of this. Has there ever been a time in your life, that you really wanted something? I mean really wanted it and you would do whatever it took to get it. And maybe your mom said, "no, if you want it so bad, get it yourself." And maybe that sent a challenge to your brain and you were like, "Fine! I will!" And you did?
Well, believe it or not you set a goal and you did the steps to achieve it.
An example in my own life was, I wanted a record. (It's a large round disc that plays music. The predecessor of CD's... go ask your mother.) Anyway, I wanted this record SO bad and my mom said "no". And then, as all good moms do, she issued the challenge, "If you want it, earn the money to get it."
I babysat, I did extra laundry, I nickeled and dimed my way to having a wad of money and coins in my jar. Just enough to buy that record. So, using my example, lets back it up and see how I made a goal.
The Goal: The Record. $X.XX
Time Frame: Had to have it in time for my pool party
Steps: -What can I do to earn money?
- Who can I get to "hire" me?
- How much should I charge?
- How many days per week will I have to work?
- What do you mean there's tax??? Ugh
- Re-adjust my goal slightly
- Negotiate with my sister to take me to the store
- Buy album
- Be the awesome-nest host at the pool party (mental note, plan the pool party) New Goal!!
Can you see the difference it would make since I WANTED something? I could have been out doing those chores and earning money all along, but it's not until you want something- FOCUS on something that things start happening.
We all dream about things we want in our future. Big things, like college, a home, a family... Little things like a new outfit, a new CD, a new game, or even a car. (yes, in the grand scheme of things a car is a little item! Lol)
You CAN have everything you want in life, you just have to 1) Know the path to get there 2) Be willing to take the path. But again, first, you have to know what you want. What's in it for you? What is going to make you happy along this, sometimes hard, sometimes trying path?
If you are not going after something that really excites you, the chances drop dramatically of you ever getting there.
Yes, you CAN have all the things you want- and don't let anyone tell you any different. I can teach you. In the Total Truth Workshop or even the separate Goal Setting Like A Boss, you will learn how to best achieve your goals.
The Total Truth Workshop will be re-released in 2016. Click here to get your name on the list to receive the dates and cities! They WILL sell out! Don't MISS OUT!
