You will achieve any goal if it is…
Are you intrigued? You are capable of achieving anything you want, but only if your goal is:
- verbalized positively, without the particles “not”;
- important to you;
- depend only on your efforts and not on external factors;
- to impact your life in the best possible way.
To formulate your goal in this way, you need to talk to yourself honestly and answer these questions:
- What do I gain or lose if I give up?
- What if I achieve it?
- What can stop me from doing this?
- What do I have to do to make it work out?
We all have our weaknesses and strengths. For example, I know that I am good at speaking in public, communicating, and persuasion; these skills make it possible for me to hold 2-3 meetings daily and succeed. But I also know that I don’t know a damn thing about paperwork, so I’m actively studying and mastering it to eliminate the “holes.” So should you: identify your advantages and turn them up to the maximum, like a radio, so that it screams at full volume. Always use your advantages at work right now! And try to compensate for the disadvantages with new knowledge. It is essential to identify your distractions — for example, a cell phone. Eliminate at least a few of these factors, and you will be surprised how your productivity will increase.
After that, you can begin to draw up a detailed action plan. First, make a road map from where you are now to the goal, then plan a route with clear and small steps. Set tight deadlines. Also, be sure to select the criteria by which you will measure your success. For example, how will you see that you have reached your goal? Will you see a six-figure amount in your bank account? Will you hold a trophy in your hands? Otherwise, you can drive past the most beautiful landscape, which was the trip’s purpose, and not even notice.
