You will NEVER be successful if you do not set proper goals.
What is a proper goal?
A goal that is detailed, specific, measurable, and time bound.
What does a weak goal look like?
I want to be rich
I will be a millionaire by 40
These are not real goals they are more like a wish list. They don’t tell you anything really. You need to create POWERFUL goals.
I will earn one million dollars by the 31st of December 2019. I will do this by creating an online business modelled on a system which is proven and that I will duplicate. I commit 3 hours of my day for 6 days every week to build my business. I commit to learning new skills, stepping out of my comfort zone and remaining disciplined to my daily routine. I will work strategically and manage my time productively. I am committed doing whatever it takes to create this reality for myself.
You can see how different the feel is between a powerful goal and a simple idea.
You will NEVER be successful if you are only doing it for the money.
If you do not enjoy what you are doing, you are wasting your time.
Achieving a goal, or growing a business, is going to take effort, energy and consistent work. It will not always be comfortable, in fact most of the time it will be uncomfortable, but if you are pursuing what you love you will find the effort worthwhile.
If you want to get rich quickly go buy a lotto ticket.
You will NEVER be successful if you wait for opportunities to come to you.
Go out and find a problem to solve and then create the solution. Go out and find what you are passionate about and become an expert at it. Go out and find the opportunity because I can assure you the opportunity is not looking for you.
I have very clear goals for myself. I have walked a journey and had the opportunity to re-evaluate the things that I truly value in life. I have been blessed with the ability to bounce back after set backs and the tenacity to not accept anything less than what I set out for.
I invite you to look at where you are going and what road map you are following. Whose hand wrote your destiny? If you are not following your own path you are been led by someone else.
Right now, grab a pen and paper and write out your goal. Write in out and read it ever single day. Write it out over and over again until you know exactly what you are going to do, how you are going to do it and when you are going to reap the rewards.
