What are you doing today to achieve your goals and dreams?
Often, we get so caught up in daily life that we forget to take small steps towards achieving a greater life of balance and success. Take Brian Tracy, for example... as the #1 Business Guru in the world, he has written over 50 books, speaks to hundreds of thousands of executives around the world and is the founder of FocalPoint Business Coaching International, Inc. Do you think he got there overnight, that his success came with easy? Absolutely not!
Let me tell you a story, Brian Tracy never finished high school, he worked a number of odd jobs for many years until on day he set his intention to start being successful. He changed his mind-set... he began taking measureable results in the direction of fulfilling his goals. First, he started with what he was going to achieve that day, then he went on to goal setting for the year, then five years, etc. He had a lot of ups and downs along the way, and had to overcome many trials to get where he is today, bringing value to millions of people all around the world. The important part is that he took small steps towards achieving his goals, everyday.
Can you relate to Brian Tracy's story? Do you dream of a better life? Here are some of his tips to help you get started!
Take small steps to achieve your greatest goals, everyday:
- Write down 21 of your core values (ex: I live with intergrity, I am highly successful, I am empathetic, I am a good listener, I am honest, etc.)
- Write down your goals... if you could wave a magic wand over all areas of your life, what would your life be like? (Be specific. Income, time, health, family, friends, traveling, hobbies, etc.)
- Find mentors that are already successful, people who will support you and your dreams, people who cherish you and see your value.
Are you ready to achieve your goals? Are you willing to take small steps towards achieving success, everyday?
Believing is the first step towards achieving.
We all go through periods of time where change is inevitable... both professionally and personally.
After getting over the initial pain of accepting the need for change, our real work begins. There are so many opportunities to grow and shape our future to benefit not only ourselves, but our families, friends and clients as well; so why is change so hard?!
Experience and observation tells me that the unknown is scary... even if we are unhappy with the present situation, at least we are familiar with it! To step out on faith and courage is key for highly successful people.
Let's think of our heros for a moment... we can be assured that they had many failures and times of tremendous grief just like we have. I am a firm believer that the difference between leaders and everyone else is the ability to overcome obstacles. Trusting our intuition, accepting the need for change and growth, and stepping out on faith are some of the most important factors for success!
Have you felt the urge to step out in faith? It's normal to be scared... the unknown is scary, BUT don't let your fear override your ability to fulfill your dreams. If you have been hoping for something more, chances are it's out there!!!
I cannot stress enough the importance of being true to yourself... do not judge your success by how difficult it is to achieve, but rather by your drive to overcome and achieve success.
Change is inevitable... are you ready to stretch and grow for your greater good?! Okay, on your mark, get set, GROW!;)
Happy Week, everyone! Remember, you have all of the power within yourself to be what you were created to be, trust that you have the ability to achieve your dreams.
