Having set goals is a key factor to your success. You need to know where you want to go to be able to figure out how to get there. This is true in both our businesses and in our personal lives. I have a few questions that will get you started out on your goal setting journey so that you can have clarity in your life. This was something that I struggled with myself, and I want to share with you my journey and how I got to where I am today.
Who do you want to be?
If someone ask you today what are the three goals you want to achieve in life right now? Would you have an answer for them?
The reason I ask this question is because if we don’t have clarity in what we want, how will we ever achieve it?
In 2012 when I sold my wireless business I had a general idea what I wanted to do, but I must admit, I did not have full understanding of my true behavioral-driven clarity and intentionality that I wanted out of my life. I will admit, I was going through the motions of life, but I really did not sit down and think about what I wanted my next chapter in my life to be. I attended a certification to become a High Performance Coach and during this process it became clear to me that I wanted to help others achieve their goals.
At the end of my blogs, I close with these three challenges:
- Give of yourself freely
- Love openly each day
- Make a difference in the world
I fail miserably some days but I must stay focused on my goals and be clear on what I want to achieve.
Just a few weeks ago, I attended my recertification for my High Performance Coaching. It helped my clarity on understanding my purpose in life that I would like to share with you:
“The purpose of my life is to be a servant leader to show my appreciation and love in my relationships, so that I might help others give of themselves, love openly and make a difference in the world.”
Thank you for allowing me to share. I want to ask you a couple of questions:
- What do you value most in your life right now?
- Do you feel clear about who you are and what’s important?
- Do you feel you’re striving each day to be who you want to be?
These are tough questions, but to find true clarity, sometimes you need a system to help you get to that point.
So today I want to share with you a process I call The Achiever Loop. this process can help you become clear on what goals will help you achieve what you want in life.
The first thing you must do is set a goal of what you want to achieve. Go ahead be a kid again and dream a little. As adults, we stop dreaming. If you need help in this area go to my website and click on the link to sign up for my FREE DREAM BIG challenge. I will send you a daily video and tool for the next 8 days to help you define your dreams.
In the second area you need to Visualize Achievement of your dream or goal. Write down the actions steps you need to take to accomplish the goal or dream.
The next step is deciding what habits or behaviors you need to change to achieve your dream or goal.
The last step is celebrate when you achieve your dream or goal.
The challenge with this whole process is slowing our life down enough to dream what we want our life to become.
My suggestion for you is to get a journal and start spending ten to fifteen minutes a day writing on these three questions I gave you.
When you take time to answer these questions it will set you in motion to change not only your mindset but also your life’s journey. I wish you well on your journey! Go out and become who you want to be!
As always, my challenge to you is:
Give of yourself freely,
Love openly & Make a difference in the world!
Make it a GREAT day!
