Have you ever sat at your desk and wondered

“What can I do RIGHT NOW to boost my business and get better results?”

Follow these steps and see what happens!

1-Write your monthly goal in a very direct, brave and aggressive manner.

As silly as it sounds, I believe that most people never really write out their goals on paper. Proclaim you goal to the masses, to the universe and to people who will support you to get there. Many people are unconsciously scared of success. Writing and verbalizing your goals creates clarity, purpose, focus and paves the way for clear actions. So write your goals out by hand, and make them at least one page.

2-Answer the following question. “What am I fearing or procrastinating the most, in regards to achieving this goal?”

Resistance in business can be an indicator of where a business owner needs to take action. The greater the resistance, the greater the success on the other side. Be aware that you mind will always want to take the path of least resistance, which leads you away from the key things that will grow your business the most! Push through the fear in identifying your next action.

3-Take action immediately to get a check in the box!

Tony Robbins® always says, “A person’s success in business is directly proportional to the amount of risk and uncertainty they can manage.” In other words, you must push through your fears and take action, NOW! Forget your need for perfectionism, forget your need to learn more first, and forget your need to be able to explain “why” if you are trusting your gut-feeling. What is important is that the risk you are taking is clearly and directly leading you forward towards your desired goal.

 

If there is still uncertainty after working through steps 1 through 3 as to a clear next step?

4-Take a few minutes and get organized.

A cluttered desk, office space, or environment is a clear indication of a cluttered mind. Take a few minutes and clear your space of anything that is not needed. Have everything find a home. It is amazing how a clear, clean working environment can produce clear, clean thinking!

Stop the “Setting Goals” Insanity Already…

It is that time of the year when every self-help email talks about setting goals. One thing that I have always found ironic is that everyone talks about the importance of setting goals.

Yet, 88% of people fail at their yearly goals!!!

So I have a question; why don’t people stop telling you how important it is to write goals and start writing about strategies to help you Succeed in achieving them!  It seems to me that is where people really need help! Why should I write articles to convince you to do something where 88% of you will fail?

Stop the “Setting Goals” Insanity right now!

So, let’s be thoughtful for a moment. It is important to have a goal but let’s take a look at some strategies to overcome the obstacles you put in place when you set them!

Let’s start with a couple of simple concepts. Hopefully you will find one you can try on to succeed!

Take the goal that you want and then do one of the following:

  1. Give something up. What is the one thing that is you gave it up, would ensure that you move closer to your goal? Example: if you are working to be more healthy, give up the soda!
  2. Replace what you give up with a healthier example so there isn’t scarcity. Example, when you give up the soda, start to drink bubbly water instead. No citric acid, sugar or aspartame, but you can still have the feeling of ice cold carbonation.
  3. Focus on keeping your word one-day-at-a-time. Your self-confidence depends upon it! Your word should be sacred! So only make promises to yourself you know you can keep!
  4. Create Ultimate Leverage for Yourself by telling so many people about your goals that you know where ever you go and whomever you see, they will ask you about it. You may not be congruent at first, but you eventually will have to act in accordance with your key identity and if your word means anything, you will have to adjust and make it happen!
  5. Celebrate! When it comes to change, nothing is too small to celebrate! If you don’t anchor in your success with good feelings there will be no good feelings with your success.
  6. If you really want to be an overachiever, radically do something different and follow the top four steps! For example, give up an extra hour of sleep every day to work out, write that book, read that educational material for work.
  7. LISTEN TO THIS: if you want your life to be different this year…YOU MUST DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT IN YOUR LIFE EVERYDAY AND ANCHOR PLEASURE TO IT!

I challenge you to sober up! Take a good look at where you were in 2012, where you are now in January of 2013 and where you want to be at the beginning of 2014.

Are you fat? Are you broke? Are you miserable with the person you are with? Is your job sucking the life out of you? Are you disgusted with the person you see in the mirror every morning? Are you tired of giving up on yourself and having the life you desire? Did you look back on 2012 with disappointment, grab a beverage to forget it and start the New Year the same as last; wishing something would change again but nothing did?

If so, I offer you a way out this year.  Again, it’s not about setting goals, it’s about using effective strategies to achieve those goals!  Call now to schedule a life changing Strategy Session to do something different for a change. You don’t deserve to have a life of pain, depression and complacency. It’s time to create a brighter future and evolve to your next level of success.
