How To Achieve Your Goals
Written by Dave Lorenzo on September 17, 2016 / Personal Development / Productivity
Setting goals is one of the most important elements of success. But a goal is just a wish until you take action toward achieving it.
There is one step in between setting the goal and taking the action that you cannot forget. You need to visualize the success you will have when you achieve the goal.
If you do not believe the goal can be real, if you have not visualized the success in your mind, you will never be able to give your full effort toward achieving it.
The video below provides you with an easy technique to help you visualize the success you will experience when you achieve your goals.
Visualize Success And Achieve Your Goals
Today we’re focused on helping you visualize success. Lots of people talk about goal setting, and setting goals is important. Even more important than that is visualizing what success will look like for you.
You see, you can’t go somewhere in reality until you go there in your mind.
Success is no different. Success is a destination for you, but you have to go there in your mind first. I want you to get a good picture of what your success in the future will look like.
In order to do this, I need you to get out a sheet of paper. You’re going to write down the answers to some questions.
These three questions will help you visualize your future success. If you do this exercise two or three times a week and you review these answers each day, you’ll be far more likely to be successful because you’ll be familiar with where you’re going.
Question #1. When you are successful, when you’ve achieved the level of success you’re striving for right now, what will you say no to that you’re currently saying yes to?
What will you say no to in the future instead of yes. Write down your answers to that question. What things will you say no to instead of yes in the future when you’ve achieved a level of success you desire.
Question #2. I want you to finish this sentence.
I know I am successful when …
I know I am successful when …
In my case, I know I am successful when my business commitments never ever come before my family commitments. I know I am successful when I am able to take time off at short notice without having to worry about work deadlines.
I know I am successful when I take off every Friday from June through September.
I know I am successful when I travel 30 days out of the year. Those are some of the ways that I answer that question. You should answer that question however you want to. You should answer that question with as many answers as possible so that you clearly visualize what success will like to you. More importantly, you know what success will feel like when you’ve achieved it.
The final answer I want you to put down is finish this sentence: With an extra $100,000 I will …
Finish this sentence:
With an extra $100,000 I will …
It is critically important that you know the answer to this question. You will never earn the extra $100,000 unless you have a plan for what you will do with it. It’s amazing how often we meet our “musts.”
It’s amazing how often we do what we have to do in order to survive on a day-to-day basis. You’ll notice that often times you’re financial life will mirror this. You have a specific payment that’s due. All of a sudden, you figure out how to make that money.
Finishing that sentence will help you get to the point where you have the extra $100,000.
These three things, these three questions will help you visualize the success you deserve and the success you’ll achieve.
