I am helping you create your goals. Because simply creating them exponentially increases your chances of achieving them. Even if you do nothing else.
The Basic Outline.
- Write down what you want (we did this)
- Put time frames on all your goals (we did this)
- Reword any wants necessary so they are all stated in the positive – Stated as if Now
- Make sure you have at least 1 lifetime goal, a few 10 year goals, and some 1 year goals.
- Go back and ask yourself, “Why?” – why do you want the things you listed.
- Create action steps for each goal
- Wherever there is resistance or struggle in moving towards the goal, there are belief systems or unconscious blocks to allowing the goals to manifest in your life – remove them or change them
You wrote down everything you want.
You put time frames on your goals.
You made sure they were all worded in the positive now tense.
This week we are going to make sure you have a guiding goal, a few 10 year goals, and some 1 year goals.
Why is this so important?
Let me ask you a few questions first
Do you have problems making decisions?
Are you not sure about what to do?
Never seem to find yourself making real progress?
Making longer term and shorter term goals will help you solve all of these and More. . .
Let me tell you a story of Walt Disney. He created a lifetime goal of “Family Entertainment”
With this as his lifetime goal, making decisions were often easy. If it didn’t fit with Family Entertainment, the answer was no.
So many decisions were easy to make because if they didn’t fit with family entertainment, the answer was no, no matter what the other pro’s and con’s were.
Likewise, if you have a life goal for yourself. The first filter you run the decision through is:
Is this going to move me closer to my lifetime goal.
And just with this, a lot of decisions become easy, because the answer is no. Independent of whatever the other pro’s and con’s are.
Think of it like an airplane. An airplane is off course over 99% of the time. But with constant slight adjustments, the airplane gets where it is going.
Your goals in life are the same way. They help keep you on course and make those slight adjustments necessary.
Before you go into overwhelm of “But I don’t know what I want” don’t worry.
You can change any of your goals at any time.
Now I know this fly’s against the theory above – at least on the surface.
As long as you do not change your lifetime Goals too often, you are fine.
And often, when you choose a life goal, just the idea of being able to change it makes the goal more freeing for many. And often you will find the life goal you create, you will not want to change later.
Your 10 and 1 year goals are similar
These goals are used to act as “markers” and immediate gratification on your way to your life goal.
If all you have is a lifetime goal, you will probably give up before you get there. Because it is a lifetime goal, it often is not getting done anytime soon.
But if you only have 1 year short term goals, you will not feel like you ever really get anywhere. Because you are always wandering from place to place in your life. With no real destination.
So if you already have lifetime, 10 year and 1 year goals. Great. No real action step for you this week.
If not, create them using the steps 1-3 above.
