We are going to get down to ONE WORD that can be your focus, your mantra, the word that can guide you through the whole year. When you need a break, you go to your word. When you are stressed, repeat your word. When you need strength or a lift, this word will be there for you!
I tried this exercise at our monthly meeting with my Sales Team last year, and will be repeating it with them again at our January meeting. It seemed to be well-received and helpful, so I hope you’ll give it a try.
To get to your ONE WORD, let’s take a little time to figure out what we you in your businesses this year. (If you want to do this for health, family, etc you can, but we will be focusing on business for this example.) Take a few minutes to sum up what you want in 1 Paragraph.That’s 5 sentences total. Make it personal, specific, and important. It may sound something like, “This year, I will build my direct sales business by growing my Team. I will be sure to work my personal business at the level of the Leader I desire to be, even before I am officially promoted to that level. I will take responsibility for making sure the work needed to make this a reality gets done. 2017 will be the year when I accept no excuses or let any distractions get in the way of what I want. I will be proud of what I have accomplished at the end of everyday.”
DID YOU DO IT??? DON’T CHEAT YOURSELF BY THINKING YOU’LL COME BACK TO THIS LATER.
Now, take that paragraph and reduce it to 1 sentence that sums up what you want to achieve. Your one sentence should encompass the most important items in your paragraph. This can be tough because we really have to DECLUTTER our thinking and boil it down to the essentials. Using the example above, it may sound like: “2017 will be the year where I accept no excuses for making my dream of becoming a (Leadership Level) a reality, and I will make sure I am doing the tasks necessary on a daily basis to add team members and reach the sales level I need. ”
MAKE SURE YOU DID IT BEFORE YOU READ ON!!!
Finally, take a few minute to look at your sentence and decide what your ONE WORD will be for 2017. It doesn’t have to be a word that is IN that sentence, it can be one that sums it up. It could be a noun, what you actually want. It could be a verb, what you are going to do. Make it an adjective to describe how you want to feel. It can be whatever you want it to be. Whatever you can hold on to and focus on when you need that extra push or guidance.
Some people are even finding their words on items and keeping them close at hand as a reminder of their focus. You could select a piece of jewelry that already has your word on it, an article of clothing like a “Believe” T-shirt, or even a motivational cell phone covers.
TIP: Can’t find anything with your word on it? Create your own personalized, engraveable piece of jewelry with your ONE WORD on it.
So, how did you do? DID YOU CREATE YOUR ONE WORD?
You can now put that word to use! Keep it where you can see it so you find motivation from it all year long. TAKE ACTION right now by writing it on a paper to hang on the refrigerator, create a poster, or print it and frame it to hang on your office wall. By keeping your word in front of you, you are sure to stay on task all year long!
Goal setting is the true secret to success in any area of life. But although setting a goal may seem simple, achieving it is usually another question altogether.
Why is that?
Because you will never achieve your goals unless you: (1) know exactly what you want, (2) are passionate about your goal, and (3) have a solid, realistic plan of action. This is what marks the difference between nebulous dreams and wishes – and truly achievable goals!
Many obstacles and challenges will fly right in your face when you’re going after a goal. Here are 5 time-tested methods that will help get the success you deserve.
1. Know exactly what your goal is
Your first job is to discover exactly what your goal is. What will achieving that goal really look like? Be as specific as possible about exactly what your desired end result is. Your success will be a measure of your clarity – since an achievable goal plan cannot be created around a nebulous “dream.”
If your goal is to create a more successful business, what will that look like? Are you thinking in terms of simply hiring someone else to give you more free time? Are you looking for a very specific monthly profit? Or can your goal be best expressed in terms of a certain lifestyle?
Regardless of what you want, the best way to get it is to first clarify exactly what you want in as much detail as possible. This can be hard work. But without a clear mental picture, you’ll never have the focus required to achieve your goal.
2. Be willing to pay the “entry fee”
Success takes dedicated planning and effort. In a way it’s like building a house. In the beginning all you have is a rough concept. Then you develop a complete set of plans – and you immediately move closer to success. The same is true of creating a better lifestyle, or a more successful business.
But there’s always an *entry fee* to be paid for success.
The entry fee?
Creating more success in your business may mean less recreational time. Writing your own book may require less TV. Being closer to your children may require adjusting your work or social activities.
It’s the “full glass” deal. If your life (your time) is already full to the top, there’s no room for something new. The entry fee is carving out the time to create that something new.
3. Focus on your goal every day
I’m sure you probably want to achieve your goal as fast as possible. That’s why clear mental focus is so very important.
Consistent daily focus is absolutely necessary to “burn in” the new neural pathways you need to create your new goal. Without daily focus, the old mental habits that have kept you from your goal will continue to take over.
This happens automatically – since these old habits replay 24/7 deep in your subconscious mind. The only way to override subconscious anti-success messages is to consciously focus on what you DO want – and build new neural networks!
That’s why success is an every-day event.
Re-commit to your goal every day. Don’t let your goal take a back seat to the daily tasks and distractions that will try to take over. Life WILL try to get in your way. Just get, and stay, on course every day. Focus on your goal, and on success!
4. Get passionate
One of the most powerful tools in your “success tool box” is having real passion for your goal.
Because intense passionate desire for your goal will help you burn in those new neural pathways even faster. Many, many scientific studies have shown that intense emotion (passion) is a key success tool.
PLUS (and this is really a *big* plus), intense passion will also help you rapidly override any inappropriate old “failure messages” stored in your subconscious mind.
5. Take consistent action
In many ways, actually taking action can be the most difficult step. Successful goal achievement is built by taking one small action after another.
The word is ACTION!
If you commit to take at least one small action each day, your actions WILL add up and make a difference. So avoid sitting back waiting for that big second when everything will magically “just happen.”
You CAN create whatever you want in life. The secret is to determine exactly what you want, then pursue it passionately. But remember — in the end, only action counts! You can’t just dream about it! You have to DO IT!
Planning your work can make any project easy and simple. People are often scared at the onset of a new job or a project. This is where goal setting can help you
What is Goal Setting
Goals are targets which you decide to achieve in a given time frame. When you have a project at hand all you have to do is to divide it into small achievable tasks and set a time frame for the completion of each task.
Steps for setting Goals
Divide the project into some manageable tasks
Set a time frame for each task
Set to work according to your plan
Try to maintain the time limit
Finish the task in the given time frame.
Revise the project
This planning helps you to have a clear cut idea about what you will be working on each day. This also saves your time. Your attitude should be a positive one. That is you should believe in yourself and have confidence in your working ability.
How goal setting helps
There are many benefits of setting goals. Setting of goals gives you a clear idea of what time table you will be following. The other benefits are as follows-
Makes the project more understandable
This helps you to complete the job within the given time frame.
The technique of goal setting can be used in your personal life also. For example if you want to loose weight or you want to go for a diet. Set your goals and try to work on them. Eventually you will be successful.
