Seven Steps To Achieving Goals

We all have goals about a lot of things or we should have, especially if we have a business. But sometimes the goals are not well defined. Therefore your results will not be specific.

So here is a list of Seven Steps to assist in Achieving your Goals from some notes I took listening to Tony Robbins a few years ago.

Step 1 – Get Clear. What do you love about your business? What don't you like? What would you like to improve? What have you accomplished up to this point? What are some things you would like to continue to do in your business? What don't you want to have happen again? What's challenging and what have you learned by going through these experiences? And why were they valuable? What empowering decisions have you made? What decisions can you continue to make?

Step 2 – Get Certain Write down any of your goals, dreams and desire, big or little that you have achieved. Circle the 2 or 3 items on your list that seemed the most difficult or impossible for you to achieve. Then for those 2 or 3 items write down the steps you took to turn them into reality.

Step 3 – Get Excited Write down every goal you'd like to accomplish in the next 12 months in your business. Things that you would like to do, be, share, have, create, enjoy, learn, give or experience. It can be personal development, relationships, physical, financial, or anything else. Don't put any limits on your dreams. Write without lifting your pen for 10 minutes. Then write the number of months next to each goal it will take to achieve it.

Step 4 – Get Focused Circle your top four one month goals.

Step 5 – Get Committed For each of your top four one month goals, write a paragraph about why they are "musts" for you to achieve. What are the things that need to be done, that you may not want to do, in order to achieve these goals?

Step 6 – Get Momentum Choose one small thing you will do now. And ask yourself what one big thing you resolve to do immediately to achieve this goal.

Step 7 – Get Smart Set up a way to measure your progress. Without a way to measure your progress, it's not really a reality. Start today and let me know how this works out for you. Personally, it was a big help to me.

    I love Anthony Robbins, I listened to everything he put out. He thought me about being aware of your feelings. And I am so grateful for that because I was able to change my attitude because of that. Great post!

    Hey Carol,

    Thanks for sharing this. Everyone can definitely use this advise in moving towards the live that they were born to live. I believe where a lot of people break down is in the get smart category. People do not set themselves up to measure their progress along the way. If this is not set right then how can you know if what you are doing is the right thing that will take you there.

    Make it a great day!
    God Bless,
    The GREAT Edward!
