Goal-setting is the best way to build your dreams. Be SURE to set specific goals based on your desires, then see and feel them happening. Put yourself in that glorious future in your mind. To quote Einstein, “Imagination is everything – it is the preview of life’s coming attractions.”
What comes next? Write 1-3 goals in each of seven specific categories.
Then, write each goal on an index card. Write it in present tense, starting with “I am” and using an active verb. Give each goal a DUE date, then be sure to append “or sooner” at the end. Example: “I am celebrating $10 million in revenue for my company by December 31, 2011, or sooner.”
Now you have your goal deck of seven to twenty-one cards. Go through the goal deck at least twice a day. Visualize achieving your goals – experiencing the good feelings associated with your success.
After reviewing your deck in the morning, write down three things you can do EACH DAY to help you achieve your #1 goal. Visualize them being achieved, and act on making them happen. You’ll be surprised how motivated you’ll be to move to the next step.
Then, as you reach a goal, move on to the next goal card.
