In order to achieve any sort of suc-
cess in life, you have to know what
exactly it is you want to accomplish.
It s not enough to think, "I want more
success in my career," or "I want to
make a living off my art."
You need to be more specific in set-
ting your goals. Goals are targets that
you set and work to achieve. In the
context of your dreams, goals are the
milestones along the route to realising
"Goal setting" is the process of
defining these goals. And it s a process
that the world s most successful people
use routinely---whether they re business
people, athletes or performers in other
areas---to propel themselves to success.
Many studies have shown that one of
the strongest and most reliable pre-
dictors of achievement is whether or
not people know about goal-setting,
and whether or not they use it to guide
When you set goals you can:
• Focus your attention and effort
towards activities that help you
achieve your dreams.
• Manage your progress towards your
dreams, so that you can achieve them
as quickly and easily as possible.
• Motivate and energise yourself to
achieve these dreams.
• Distinguish between activities that
contribute to the achievement of your
dreams and distractions that are
keeping you from achieving them.
• Justify the time you spend learning
skills and strategies needed for suc-
• Encourage yourself to persist in the
face of adversity.
How do you set goals is a question
that is asked all the time. Firstly, let s
take your A-list dreams and convert
them into goals. This turns them from
vague aspirations into hard, precise,
motivating targets that you want to
achieve. Listed below are six steps to
set your goals.
• Put the dream into positive, emo-
tionally intense language. This is crit-
• Express it clearly. (Don t say "do my
• Make it measurable so you know
whether you ve achieved it or not.
• Make it achievable. It s been shown
time after time that people with dif-
ficult but achievable goals do much
better than people with moderate
• Set a clear date by which you ll
achieve the goal.
• Express it in the present tense. This
makes it so much more powerful!
Success goals need to be clearly
defined and measurable. For example,
instead of thinking "more money," think
a specific dollar amount achieved by a
certain date. (Eg: $150,000 in the bank
by December 31 of this year.)
Be sure to read through your list of
goals every day and use the power of
visualisation to get your goals crystal
clear in your head. This will give you
the motivation you need to carry your
goals forward and attract the people,
resources, and opportunities you need
to make them a reality. You ll find it
much easier to reach your goals if you
have a clear vision of what they are.
Are you ready to make that happen?
Read and follow the instructions.
• Decide what you want---record
your goals. Set the date by which
you will complete your goal, then
create a plan to achieve them.
• A sample goals sheet.
But, how are you going to find time
to work on even these first-step goals
if your calendar is already full?
The answer is to create an
integrated organisational system that
will embrace both your goal-related
activity and the everyday items that
are just part of your job. Why?
Because unless you make goal
achievement a normal, routine part of
the way you live your life, you risk
forgetting your goals and getting
overwhelmed by the trivial day-to-
day activities that hold most people
back from achieving them.
