Steps To Goal Setting
You must have a specific goal. ...saying you want to make more money isn’t specific enough. You should assign a specific dollar amount to it like, “I will make an extra $10,000/month.”You MUST have a specific time in which to achieve your goal. ...
You must write down your goal. ...Many people like to skip this step or deem it as unimportant. DON’T be one of those people! Writing something down always makes it seem more important. Put it somewhere you’ll see it daily. For my goal setting process, I keep them printed out and on my desk where I see it daily and then I schedule time every Monday to review my goals to make sure I’m moving forward each week to achieve them.
You must develop a plan to achieve your goal. ...this is where the rubber meets the road. Wanting to earn $10,000/month by June 1 is a great goal.
Can you get there doing what you’re doing today? Do you need to find a business with an extra stream of income and follow their training system? Do you plan to invest your money differently? What are the specific action steps you will take to achieve your goal? This step answers, “How will I achieve my goal?”.
You must decide the price you're willing to pay. ...If reaching your goal was easy, you would have done it by now, right? So there’s going to be something or some things you’ll need to give up if you’ve set your goal high enough. You identify those in this step.
To make an extra $10,000/month, you may need to give up tv or get up an hour earlier every day. Figure out what that is for you and make it happen.
You must think about your goal every day. Your dreams keep you going but your goals keep you on course. I do some reflection in my goal setting process. I put them in the present tense versus future so I can actually feel them happening and can see it.
For instance, I say to myself, “It feels amazing to be making an extra $10,000/month. My saving account is growing every day.” It sounds a little cheesy but it works!!! Try it daily affirmations and set your goals and you will see the difference in your life.
