Success is not an accident. Success is something you create by having an identified goal and by taking the action steps necessary to move in the direction of achieving your goal until you finally reach it.
Depending on your goal, this takes differing amounts of time, energy and focus. It doesn’t take as much time, and energy to get to work safely, as it does to create a successful business, loving relationships or reduce weight.
The bigger the goal the more pre-planning and the more adjustments you need to make in order to be successful. Often times individuals are not willing to make the commitment of time, energy and focus to achieve their goals. When the going gets tough, too many people give up, instead of adjusting their action steps and continuing to move forward.
Having written goals that you review everyday is a powerful way to be successful. Check everyday to see if the actions you are taking are moving you toward or away from your goals. If you are moving closer to your goal great! If not, identify what you need to do to get back on track.
Driving a car requires you to make constant small adjustments to stay on the road. Are you making the adjustments necessary to achieve success as you travel the road of life?
· Write one or two sentences about why this goal is important to you.
· Write one or two sentences about how you will feel when you achieve the goal.
· It’s important to have long, as well as short term goals, so the last thing you want to do is decide on a date to accomplish each goal. 1 month, 6 months, 1 year, 5 years, 10 years.
