New year, new you. Are you jumping on your goals?
No matter what they might be, planning for success may seem like an intimidating task.
Fortunately, I’ve got your back.
Here are six crucial steps to pump it up so you can turn your dreams into reality.
Step 1: Know Where You Are Going by Visualizing Your Goal
What are you passionate about?
Where do you want to end up?
Use visualization to flesh out the details.
What will you feel like once you accomplish your goals?
How will your quality of life change?
Pump up the jam.
While your feet are stompin’ and the jam is pumpin’, pump it up a little more.
Feel your future, sense it, and even taste it in your mouth.
Oh, that sweet taste of success!
Step 2: Get to Know Your Strengths and Weaknesses
Arrogant people rarely succeed.
Take time to understand what needs to be worked on to create the infallible you that can achieve anything.
Sometimes it means… outsourcing.
You don’t have to be a superman or a wonder woman all the time.
Can’t stand accounting? Stop fighting yourself.
Admit it – you ain’t gonna do it.
Hire an accountant to do it for you. Then focus on the things that you’re good at.
Easy? You bet.
Who’s the super hero now?!
Step 3: Take Time Before Taking Action
Most people jump straight into action before they’ve aligned with their goals.
If you’re scratching your head, thinking “What the heck is alignment?,” then the answer is simple.
Are you excited about your goal? Are you thrilled to get it going?
If you’re not, go back to Step 1 and visualize all those juicy sensations from achieving your goal.
Step 4: Set Un-Realistic Goals
“Realistic” is the enemy of dreams.
Don’t listen to your nagging friends who tell you that you’re thinking too big.
Super-size your goals.
Surely, it can be intimidating to go after doubling or tripling your revenue but, trust me, your brain doesn’t care how small or big your goal is.
Get your brain to work for you.
View your goal like a puzzle.
Work on the big picture first (Step 1), then fill in smaller steps.
Put one foot in front of the other towards that big, fat, hairy goal.
One small step each day is all you need to move forward.
Step 5: If at First You Don’t Succeed, Try Again!
Never give up, no matter how hard it seems at first.
When you were a kid, you were learning how to walk. How many times did you fall?
I bet your bum was pretty sore.
Guess what? You lived.
You even ended up walking in the end.
Need I say more?
Step 6: Celebrate all victories – no matter how small.
No achievement is too small to recognize so get your freak on.
Release “happy hormones” and get addicted to success.
Celebrate your progress.
Get your booty on the floor tonight.
Get the party going on the dance floor.
Make my day!
