Setting goals is a task every single person should embrace...especially entrepreneurs.
Whether you do it every New Year or at various times throughout the year, knowing what you want in life and what you want to accomplish - will prevent that feeling of just "going through the motions" each day without purpose. Knowing your purpose and having clear goals will motivate you to wake up and take action every single day. But not just any ACTION - the action that leads to PROGRESS and RESULTS!
I personally commit to setting goals with desired results, quarterly! But more on that later!
Setting goals in every aspect of your life will not only keep you focused on what you want, but it will help you eliminate the confusion of what you should be doing in your business and your life, on a daily or weekly basis. Whether it’s about losing weight to regain your health or increasing your business profits, knowing what you want allows you to put action steps in place. After all, nothing happens in life without taking action!
Taking the right action steps requires a PLAN OF ACTION!
Successful People Who Set Goals
If you’re feeling defeated with not reaching goals in the past, don’t stress! Even the most successful celebrities and business owners have had their own share of failures - but they continued to set goals anyway.
Entertainer extraordinaire Beyoncé keeps a photograph of an Academy Award by her treadmill where she sees it every day. She used it to motivate her after losing a previous award and to help her settle in on her BIG GOAL for the future. Shortly after, she won an Oscar for the theme song to the James Bond movie, Skyfall.
Michael Jordan, arguably one of the best professional basketball players of all time, was rejected by the high school basketball varsity team because he was too short. Told he would never play at that level, Michael trained even harder and visualized his name in a professional locker room.
Walt Disney was laughed at by many bankers when he proposed his idea for the Disney World theme park. The last laugh is on them because today the entire Disney franchise – including the many theme parks, movies, and merchandise – are worth many billions of dollars.
JK Rowling, famously known for writing the Harry Potter series, couldn’t get book publishers to talk to her. Depending on food stamps to survive, she finally found a publisher who agreed to publish her book after the publisher’s daughter started reading the book and became entranced.
You Can View Your Failures As Lessons Learned
Thomas Edison is another person who was labeled as “stupid” by his teachers, yet at one point he held over 1,000 patents for new inventions. Most famous for inventing the lightbulb, Edison is also known for this quote, “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.”
I personally remember not having enough money to even START my business. I took less than $40 and begin to build a BRAND and not just a business. Recently, while on vacation in the Caribbean with my family, my product based business made over $10K in sales, while I was relaxing on the beach!
Am I bragging? Not at all... I'm sharing this to encourage you!
You may not have reached every goal in your business or your life, but that doesn’t mean you stop trying. Failures or setbacks don't mean you give up! It means you take action!
What you can do is: 1) Revise your goals 2) Revisit your vision 3) Articulate what is most important in your business and your life! In other words, take the NECESSARY action toward those goals. Don't just stay busy - stay focused...on your goals, that is!
Busy work doesn't generate money! Results do!
