Happy New Year, friends! Can you believe that today marks the first day in 2018? It's amazing to me how quickly time flies and how there never seems to be enough time in the day to get everything done!
Let's tackle this year by setting ourselves up for the best chance at success! How do we do this? It's not easy, but it's possible! We must take some time and strategically plan out our goals so that we have a direction and we know where we are going. This is the only way that we will have time for all of the important things in our business and be able to execute our goals year after year.
Here are some tips to successfully set your goals and follow through:
1. Take Ownership
All too often we are told about the latest and greatest 'item' or 'thing' that will make all of our goals possible and our dreams come true. However, we are rarely told that 'we' are the ones who have the ability to make our goals possible and our dreams a reality. You must be willing and ready to commit to the challenge that lies ahead and have the self-determination to make it happen. Rather than relying solely on the latest 'program', commit to the process and you will be much more likely to succeed.
2. Be Realistic About Time
How many times have you started a new project only to quit before you reached your goal? Most of us desire to see change or results much quicker than is possible. We live is a society where everything is moving 100 miles per hour and it's difficult to slow down and set realistic expectations. You must be realistic about the time it takes to implement and complete a task and be willing to re-evaluate and adjust your goals and time frames as needed to meet your goal expectations.
3. Embrace Difficulty
To be successful you must understand that there is a price for success and that you will have to work hard to meet your goals. Having a realistic outlook on the challenges that lie ahead will give you more of a drive to continue when these do arise. To be successful in business you must not be afraid of challenging goals. Set your goals to be specific and then look ahead to face the challenges head on!
