5 secrets to Setting Goals. Follow them and you will move you forward in 2012, versus ending up in the same situation you are today?
Goals or Success Targets are of vital importance in our lives. Many of us spend our lives without any definite purpose, simply drifting from place to place, wandering aimlessly. Setting a goal helps us to focus our lives and to advance confidently in a definite direction. Without them, I don’t think our lives can truly be complete. You want to build your home business with purpose. It’s so rewarding to do things in life with purpose and goals can help you get there. Goals are great because they cause you to grow and stretch in your personal development.
The major reason for setting a goal is for what it makes of YOU to accomplish it. What it makes of you will always be the far-greater value than what you get.
When Andrew Carnegie died, they discovered a sheet of paper upon which he had written one of the major goals of his life: to spend the first half of his life accumulating money and to spend the last half of his life giving it all away. And he did! Some people are disturbed by those tough days because all they have is the days. They haven’t designed, described or defined the future. Setting goals will help. Remember, Goals- there’s no telling what you can do when you get inspired by them.
There’s no telling what you can do when you believe in them. And there’s no telling what will happen when you act upon them. We all need lots of powerful long-range goals to help us past the short-term obstacles. The ultimate reason for setting goals is to entice you to become the person it takes to achieve them.
Don’t set your goals too low. If you don’t need much, you won’t become much.
If you go to work on your goals, your goals will go to work on you. If you go to work on your plan, your plan will go to work on you. Whatever good things we build end up building us so set your goals high. We all have two choices, we can make a living or we can design a life.
If you are looking for proof of the importance of goals, you need not look any farther than two studies on success and goal-setting, one completed by Yale University and the other by Dr. Lewis Terman of Stanford University.
In the first study, Yale University kept track of their graduates during a 20 year period. They asked the graduates if they had written goals. They found that only 3% of the graduates had actually written down their goals. However, they further found out that the 3% who set goals were worth more financially than the entire 97% of the students who did not!
In the second study, Dr. Terman of Stanford conducted a study of 1,528 students all with IQ’s above the genius level. His study found that intelligence had nothing to do with success and financial acumen but that goal-setting did!
These two studies prove that Goal Setting is very important to your business! I know it’s been a tough year for so many people. What’s great about a New Year is that you can let go of the past and set your sights on a better and brighter future. If you are in the right opportunity you should be positioned to set so many people free. All of you are fortunate to be in an industry where you can literally write your own check. Some of you don’t like what happened to you in 2011. If the plan that you had for this year didn’t get you to where you wanted to be, then don’t bring last year’s plan into 2012. You have to get a new plan!
2012 will be here before you know it. And now, the question has to be asked, as it is always asked at this time of the year: What goals are you planning for 2012? Or let’s be honest: Do you even have any goals for 2012 especially for your home business?
So many folks in this industry will have the same year they had last year, and the year before, because they have not set any goals (I call them targets) that will focus and inspire them to greater success in their business. How about you? Tomorrow, I’ll give you the 5 Secrets to hitting your Goals/ Success Targets in 2012. Talk to you then!
