Goal setting is a formal process for personal planning. By setting goals on a routine basis you decide what you want to achieve, and then move step-by-step towards the achievement of these goals. The process of setting goals and targets allows you to choose where you want to go in life. By knowing precisely what you want to achieve, you know what you have to concentrate on to do it. You also know what is merely a distraction.
Setting goals for yourself is crucial for your success in network marketing. Goals are what help you stay focused in times of difficulty and they are what motivate you when you are being lazy.
Take some time and write down your goals in blue ink. Why blue ink? Blue is the hardest color for the eye to see therefore your brain must imagine it before your eyes can read it. So again write down your goals in blue ink. You should have both short term and long term, easy and hard goals, set some that you will be able to finish by the end of the day, and when you do check it off. Always set new goals as soon as you think of a new on or reach an old one. Never let yourself be without a goal.
Post your goals all over your house- on the bathroom mirror, by the phone, on the refrigerator, on your night stand, post a list or pictures of your goals in every room of the house. Read over your goals every night before you go to bed and every morning when you wake up.
Use your goals to your advantage. Have them pull you towards success and financial independence. Below you will find some additional tips to help you with your goal setting.
*Check your conscious thoughts, your sub-conscious thoughts and your super-conscious thoughts.
*Whatever the mind of a person can conceive and believe, it will achieve.
*Tapping into your super conscious capability: -Feed your mental energy. -Visualization of your goals –Can you see what you want? -Affirmation- of yourself and others- Confirm the positive. -Find solutions, and plant the need to find answers. Stop trying…Do it!
*You are what you think about- super conscious leads to your dominant thoughts.
*Concentrate on what you want, not what you can get.
*Leaders see it and so they can achieve it.
*Consistent small goals lead to big rewards. Always take baby steps on the way to long-term goals. Inch by inch is an cinch; yard by hard is hard.
*Your goals should be EVERYWHERE! In your wallet, on a paper in your pocket, pasted on your bed, on your bathroom mirror…see them everywhere.
*Make a habit- it takes 21 days of repetition to create a habit. Make positive habits.
*Create positive visualization habits!
*When you achieve a goal, quickly set another. Don’t delay. Keep the old goal for reference.
*You are what your thoughts are today.
