The hard truth is, you will not achieve your desires without a system of setting goals!
Goals are the very first step in 'turning the invisible into the visible' Tony Robbins
Here is how it goes, one day you are sat having breakfast and BANG!!! an idea for an awesome business or service idea pops into your head, not to go into too much detail today... but where the hell did it come from!! it literally blows my mind to wonder where a thought comes from (a later post perhaps!!)
So there it is, some unknown force has planted a seed in your head, and then it sits back and watches what you will do with it!
Do you take the thought of interest and write it down?
Tell your self (or your ego tells you) that that is a ridiculous idea, and puts it away in a box inside you?
80% of the entire population usually go with option 2. Is that you? Are you living in your comfort zone? Are you getting incredible seeds of ideas given to you and killing it before it has had a chance to breathe? There is a really simple way to test the worthiness of an idea, and no one even needs to know! If you would like a FREE copy of The Vortex Goal Setting Guide - Type #GOAL in the comments!! Next time you have a lightbulb moment, why don't you do the 6 steps below to see what happens. What have you got to lose and more importantly, what have you got to gain!! You may already have an idea that has taken hold and you may be nurturing the seed with action and still not knowing what, when, where, how or why. Fear not, I am about to go through the 6 steps to formulate your thoughts to lead you to success. If you do not have a goal for your desires, you do not have a path for your destination. Here are six reasons why setting goals is important to according to the Amazing Brian Tracey. 1. GOALS GIVE YOU FOCUS Without a goal, your efforts can become disjointed and often confusing. For example, a goal takes the flight of a hummingbird, which is chaotic and erratic and focuses it much like a hawk swooping down for its prey. It allows you to zero in on each day’s tasks with laser precision, weeding out wasted effort and idle movement. 2. GOALS HELP YOU MEASURE PROGRESS Being able to keep track of your progress toward achieving a goal is only possible if you set one in the first place. Being able to measure progress is extremely rewarding and will help you maintain focus, keep your head held high and your energy up. It will also keep you from getting down. Sometimes, when working towards success, it’s easy to become discouraged because you don’t feel you have “arrived” yet. However, when you measure progress while working towards a specific goal, you will be able to see that though you might not be where you are wanting to get, you have made movements in the right direction and are a lot better off than where you started. 3. GOALS HELP YOU STAY MOTIVATED It’s easy to put off work until tomorrow when there is no goal on the line. For example, let’s consider the life of an athlete. If they have to get in shape for say an NFL combine, you better believe they are going to be working out each and every day, whether they feel good or not, whether they are sore or not, whether they are tired or not, whether they want to or not, because they have a goal. They have a destination. Their desire to achieve their goal keeps them in the gym when they would much rather skip. In much the same way, having a goal will keep you motivated! 4. THEY HELP YOU BEAT PROCRASTINATION Procrastination is something we all battle from time-to-time, myself included. However, when you set goals in life, specific goals for what you want to achieve, it helps you understand that procrastination is dangerous. It is wasted time. It is another day you aren’t moving closer to that goal. Consider this quote from Pablo Picasso next time you are thinking of putting off that next step towards your goal and rethink your stance: “Only put off until tomorrow what you are willing to die having left undone.” 5. YOU ACHIEVE EVEN MORE When you set a goal and reach it, it gives you the taste of victory. You will want to taste that again. What does that mean? You push yourself towards the next rung of the ladder, challenge yourself to move past another ceiling, you achieve even more. Working towards meeting and surprising goals help you achieve way more than you ever thought possible. 6. GOALS HELP YOU DETERMINE WHAT YOU WANT IN LIFE The act of setting goals forces you to contemplate what you truly want out of life. What is the level of success you want to achieve? What is the income level you want to have? What does your life of ease look like? What about your dream home? What do you need income-wise to achieve your dreams? Once you set this end goal, you then break your desires down into attainable, measurable goals. These goals keep you motivated, helping you avoid procrastination and keeping you laser-focused on achieving your dreams. It is, therefore, the act of setting, achieving and surpassing goals that make living your best life possible. Are you ready to take control of your life and plan an awesome future? YES, YOU ARE!!!!
