What is the REAL Secret to Goal Success?
Had disapointing results with your personal or business goal success?
It is commonly agreed that goal success involves setting specific, measurable and time-targeted objectives for something you want to achieve.
Goal setting is obviously an important key to success. But there is something more involved that many people forget to focus on. Goal success depends on having a realistic goal plan that puts you in action moving toward your goal.
Your first step in goal success requires that you set an achievable goal.
HOW DO YOU DO THIS?
1. Decide exactly what your goal is
This is your first job, and there really is NO short cut. Be as specific as possible. Your success will be a measure of your clarity – since an achievable goal plan cannot be created around a nebulous “dream.
2. Be willing to pay the “entry fee”
Success takes dedicated planning and effort. In a way it’s like building a house. In the beginning all you have is a rough concept. Then you develop a complete goal plan – and you immediately move closer to success. Creating a detailed step-by-step goal plan is the key here. Even Psychology Today cites the importance of developing a goal plan.
3. Focus on your goal every day
It is important to focus your mind consistently on your goal. Goal boards, post-it notes, and even on target screen savers can help. Consistent daily focus is absolutely necessary to “burn in” the new neural pathways you need to have goal success. This should be reflected in your goal plan. Success is an every-day event.
4. Get passionate
Having real passion for your goal. Be sure you have selected a goal you truly care about, or you may never get past the first “bump in the road.” Have you selected a goal you have passion for?
The second key to goal success is ACTION based on a goal plan. This is where the development of a formal goal plan comes in.
