“Goals are dreams with deadlines” and “A goal properly set is halfway reached. “ (Diana Scharf, and Abraham Lincoln).
We always get what we focus on. If you focus on what you don’t want, you’re only going to get more of it. Focus on your goals daily and turn the impossible into the possible. By putting your goals on paper you are making a commitment to yourself and feeding your sub-conscience with instructions.
In 1979, they conducted a survey with Harvard’s MBA Program Graduates and found that:
- 84% had no goals at all
- 13% had goals but they were not written down
- 3% had clear, well defined goals mapped out on paper.
Ten years later they went back and surveyed all the groups again and the 3% with well defined goals that were mapped out on paper were earning ten times more than the other two groups combined. These numbers are staggering.
The lesson here is if you want to be successful and amass a fortune, start putting your goals on paper and focus on them daily. Your goals do not only have to be geared towards sales and business either; set personal goals, relationship goals, and goals in every area of your life.
With no roadmap or destination, we can’t get to where we want to be in life.
Right now, write down your daily goal! Put in on paper! Make the commitment to yourself.
Now where are you going to be at the end of the week? Write it down! Make the promise to yourself.
Where will you be at the end of the month? Write it down, make the commitment! Now do the same for 3 months, six months, 1 year, 3 years, 5 years, and ten years. Good!!!!!!
One of the keys to success is consistency: focus on these goals daily, continue to write them down and say them out load with enthusiasm.
Have a fantastic day full of success and prosperity!!!
Until Next Time,
