Settings goals represents one of the key components to find success in your life! This is what guides you and tells you that you are on the right track. But before you write your goals down, you need to know where you want to go!

You need to determine your end result to find success. That means you need to know what you want to achieve before you even start doing it. You need to be clear about what you want to achieve. Basically, you need to establish your destination before you can set out on the road.

When you plan a route on a map you always have a starting point and a destination. It works the same way in your life: Your destination should be the goal that you want to accomplish in life! Allow me to explain.

When you create your destination, you need to start by saying something like this: “I want to be a successful real estate investor in single family homes in my city” or “I want to be an Iron Man competitor and teach people how to train to compete as well” or “I want to the best student in my martial art school and obtain my black belt faster than anybody else”. Basically, you need to envision exactly what you hope to become at the end of the road. In order to properly know whether or not you are getting closer to your dreams, you need to have a clear idea of exactly what your dreams are!

Before I continue, let me clarify something. Saying something like: “I want a million dollars in my bank account” means nothing. You are wasting your time and the odds are you won’t become a millionaire! You absolutely need to be clear on what you want to achieve. The clearer you are the better. And by doing so, it’ll help you set your goals! Write down your destination in as much detail as possible so you can set the appropriate goals in order to attain that destination.

So let’s take an example of “a road map” or “destination” from before to show you how to set some goals. “I want to be a successful real estate investor in single family homes in my city”. Like I said, by being very clear with your destination it’ll really help you set your goals.

Here are some example of different goals you may have to accomplish on a road map towards becoming a successful real estate investor: research a home (neighborhood, types of homes), find the home, make an offer, close the deal, find a mortgage, fill-out the papers at the lawyer’s office, take possession of the home, find a tenant, get the first and last month rent from the tenant, manage the property and do it all over again.

That was just a small example of the different goals that you may need to accomplish. Keep in mind that goals are there to guide you to your destination so they may constantly be changing. And that is ok. Actually your goals should change…

Now believe me when I tell you that every time you have accomplished a goal you are one step closer to your destination and you are going to fell great about yourself. But what’s really important is that you need to keep on going and never stop until you have accomplished what you set out to do!

So the next time you are sitting around watching TV, why don’t you decide to create your road map and start setting some goals? And by doing this, success will be right around the corner ?

Cheers to Your Good Life!
