Tips For Goal Setting

As I mentioned in my previous article, Success is in Your Reach- The Entrepreneur Mindset, it is critical to use the SMART goal setting formula when setting a goal for yourself, but it is also important to be as detailed as possible. For instance, if I was setting a goal for the type of car I wanted to purchase in the future, I would write down the make, model, color , gas mileage, year, and car statistics for that particular car, etc. So, I would do research to find the exact kind of car I'd have in mind and then, I would write all of the information, and make a step by step plan on the actions I would need to take to accomplish my goal.

It's also important to remember that your goal should stretch you. In other words, it's not really setting a goal if the outcome won't help you grow as a person. It's okay to feel a bit uncomfortable. It's necessary to force yourself get out of your comfort zone temporarily in order to set a particular goal because accomplishing goals, if you allow it to, can help you develop and mature as an individual. According to the international personal development speaker Jim Rohn, “Set your goals big enough so that in the process of achieving them you become a person worth becoming.” Consider ways on how you can keep your goals constantly in front of you, such as , using post-it notes or placing index cards around you and carry them in your pocket or wallet. You could also put them in your I-pad if you have one. However you decide to write them down is up to you. The main point is that they are wrote down and reviewed everyday.

Another tip that I suggest to everyone is making a list of the top 10 things you want to accomplish in 2011! This list could entail visiting far away places, various personality traits you would like to work on in yourself, or meeting your goal weight. It is up to you and the possibilities are endless. Just remember to use the SMART goal setting formula and stay focused so that you can be who you want to be, have what it is you want to have, and become who it is you want to become. If you want to become one of the top 1% income earners in you network marketing company, setting goals in this way and getting into massive action can propel you into the success you are dreaming of. It's all possible and within your reach.

As you get into massive action when working toward your goals obstacles will present itself that can stop you if you allow it to. Remember, this always happens when you make a life changing decision. So, it's best to prepare for it, handle it, and move forward.

Considerations, Fears, Roadblocks

Considerations are obstacles that we often allow to stop us from accomplishing our goals. These are thoughts that we have had subconsciously, so it is good to allow them to pop up and bring them to our conscious awareness. Then, you can deal with them one at a time. For example, if you are wanting to double your income next year, you may start considering how many more hours you'll have to work. Considerations are all the reasons why you shouldn't attempt the goal. They are the reasons why you can talk yourself into believing the goal is impossible for you to accomplish.

Fears, on the other hand are feelings. You may experience a fear of rejection, failure, inadequacy, incompetence, etc. These fears are not unusual, they are just part of the process. It is important for us to understand this point.

Roadblocks are obstacles that arise that are outside your control. For instance, what if you don't have the necessary $500 to start your network marketing business, you may have to consider having other investors. You may have to think about how you could raise the funds or who you know that would be interested in investing in your future. Considerations, Fears, and Roadblocks, are all relevant issues that could present themselves and you must have viable solutions in order to move forward with accomplishing your goals.
