Setting Goals That Get Massive Results!

Happy New Year!

 

How to have an AWESOME 2013!

This is very similar to the post I made one year ago. There are a few simple changes.

We hear all the time how important it is to set goals. Well, there’s a reason for that… They work!Listen to this killer method and learn how to easily set some goals that will change your life. Really.

There are many methods out there for creating goals. Many are good. I’m going to introduce you to something new.

A New Way To Create Your Goals

Here’s a method I’m using right now! This was developed by using components of several different people’s ideas on goal setting. I know you’ll love this. Bottom line is, follow the steps. This is about RESULTS, not about writing down a bunch of words and forgetting them.

At the end of 2013, you will realize that this exercise in “goal setting” made a huge difference in your life. Here we go…

The Goal System

STEP 1

Get a paper notepad (no computers or laptops – too distracting!) that will be used JUST for this.

On the first page, write a list of items, one per line, consisting of things in your life that are important. This is your list, so include whatever you want. Mine looks something like this:

  • Spriritual
  • Family
  • Love/relationships
  • Friends
  • Hobbies
  • Travel
  • Fitness
  • Income
  • Helping Others
  • Location
They are in no particular order, it doesn’t matter, just write down everything that is important like the above example.
STEP 2

On the next page at the very top, write “December 31st 2013”
Choose one of the topics and write a few paragraphs AS IF that goal were already accomplished and you were living it. Write out of gratitude and excitement about your accomplishment for that goal.
Here is my example for “Hobbies”. I have a couple, so I’ll share the first one with you that I plan to accomplish.
HOBBIES
I love my new hobbies! This year I learned to fly helicopters and actually got my pilot’s license. It’s so amazing to cruise the skies and see everything from that perspective. Made some great new friends. These people know how to have fun! It’s great to be able to catch a lift somewhere with a buddy, or take a bird somewhere and spend a few days. What an amazing new accomplishment!

That’s it! If you have more than one thing for that item, just leave a space and keep writing.
Do this for each item on your list. Be as descriptive as you can, and try to use emotion in your words, like “it feels so great to…” etc.
Here is the SECRET SAUCE
EVERY DAY take a few minutes and READ every one of your goals. Just read it.
NOW, pick ONE of them and spend 3-5 minutes imagining it. For example, I would take about 1 minute and read through each one of my written out goals. Then, in a quite place where there won’t be any distractions, I would choose one for that day, say hobbies, and spend 3-5 minutes imagining that I had already achieved that goal and how grateful I am that I accomplished that it. Simply imagine yourself living that goal. 3-5 minutes.
DO THIS EVERY DAY!!
FINAL STEP
Map out a plan and TAKE ACTION. I’ll be the first to tell you that it isn’t going to work if you just sit around and imagine things happening. Sorry. IT REQUIRES ACTION!
The final step is to create an action plan for each one of the items then actually TAKE THE REQUIRED ACTION. This can be done as you go, the IMPORTANT thing is getting your items on paper NOW. Do it TODAY.
The items are your destination. The action plan is your road map.
Determine the destination. Map out the route, then take steps every day toward your destination. Guess what… When December 31st rolls around again, you will be amazed at the things you’ve accomplished.
I hope this helps you.
I wish you a Very Happy New Year and all the best to you and yours!
