Achieving Your Goals
What is it you want to achieve? Do you have a goal? Do you want to make it happen? These steps will help you achieve your goals
Make the commitment to reach your goal. One person with a commitment is worth a hundred who only have an interest.
Commit yourself to detailed accountability. Record your progress toward your goals every night, and list the six most important things you need to do the next day. Daily discipline is the key to reaching your goals.
Build your efforts on a sold foundation of honesty, character, integrity, trust, love, and loyalty. This foundation will give you an honest shot at reaching any goal you have set properly. And if you don’t quite get there in the end you aren’t going to be ashamed of your efforts either
Break your intermediate and long-range goals into bite sized pieces or increments. If you can do it overnight it wasn’t much of a goal right?
Be prepared to change and be flexible. You can’t control the weather, inflation, interest rates, or the stock market etc. Change your decision to move toward a goal carefully–but be willing to change your direction to get there as conditions and circumstances demand.
Share your “give-up” goals (i.e., give up smoking, being rude, procrastinating, being late, eating too much, etc.) with many people. Chances are they’re going to encourage you. If they don’t, don’t listen to them anymore.
Become part of a team with the same sort of goals. Remember: You can have everything in life you want if you will just help enough other people get what they want.
Visualise your achievement . In your imagination see yourself receiving that diploma, getting that job or promotion, making that speech, moving into the home of your dreams, achieving that weight-loss goal, etc.
Remember, what you get by reaching your destination isn’t nearly as important as what you become by reaching your goals
