When asked what their goals, dreams, and aspirations are, most people have a pretty good idea of what they want. But when asked if they have a plan for achieving their goals, most people haven't formulated anything concrete.
When it comes to goal accomplishment, most of us continue to rely on hope and prayer alone. In this video with John Assaraf, you'll learn the crucial plan you must create in order to achieve your goals.
There's a big difference between setting goals and achieving goals. It's important that you look beyond the scope of just setting goals to have goals, you must create a detailed action plan that leads you down the path of goal attainment.
To help you get started on your plan here's an easy 4-step guide (PDF) to help you achieve any goal.
So what is it that you are striving toward? Write it down. This is your goal.
Once you have a goal in mind, it is time to develop your plan to achieve it. There are several techniques you can implement as you design your personal road map for success. And if you invest a little bit of time to plan what you're going to do, versus trying to figure it out as you go along . . . you're far more likely to persevere and achieve what you set out to do.
The individual goals you set are stepping stones toward the greater vision of yourself and your true calling or highest purpose. When you have your goal written down and clear in your mind, it's time to visualize and strategize with tactics and a timeline.
Here's a quick overview of the easy 4-step process to achieving any goal.
1. See the "goal achievement" vision of yourself.
Develop a clear vision of what you want to achieve in your lifetime. How do you see yourself once you've accomplished your goal(s)? Mentally rehearse what your life will be like upon goal completion. What do you see, hear, smell, taste, and feel? Use your senses to get clear on the external and internal outcome of personal achievement. This is your "goal achievement" vision. Once you've done this, it's time to move on to design a strategy.
2. Design a strategy.
A strategy allows you to figure out exactly what you must do in order to achieve your goal. Your strategy is basically the overall game plan. Ask yourself, "How can I achieve my goals?"
3. Develop tactics.
A tactic is a specific action item you'll follow through with in order to put your strategy into play. Developing tactics is a way to break down the strategy into smaller tasks and to-dos. Write these down. Once you have your action steps clearly outlined, have a look at your calendar.
4. Create a timeline.
So you've set your goal completion date for sometime in 2017 . . . great! To implement your strategy, take your outline of tactics and organize your schedule. Pencil in time for each individual action step. A timeline will keep you on track to achieving your goal.
Got it? With strong motivation, a plan, and a timeline, you're ready to achieve any goal you set. You can totally do this!
