In my last blog, I shared with you the three problems you may be encountering in making your goals. Today, I will share with you the three solutions on how you can be confident in making them.
Solution 1: Be proactive in planning your future
Make sure that instead of being reactive to other people's agendas and goals, you're proactive in the planning of your own future.
Start by thinking about where you want to be. Then ask yourself, “What's the fastest way I can get there?” Not just what opportunities have come your way or what things have people suggested you do or what are other people doing. Instead, what’s the most direct path and the main goals that will help you to reach your dream future. You do that by implementing solution 2.
Solution 2: Look at your ideal life and how you want things to be a year from now
If you want a really clear picture of your future, then you need a proven process to follow in order to figure it out. Go through these questions:
The answers will help you to set the right goals to get you to that picture.
Solution 3: Have someone else work with you on this
Solution 1 and 2 can be pretty intimidating so the key thing is to have someone else coach you through it. When you have someone else work with you, they not only can suss out when you have limiting beliefs, and expand what you think is possible, but they can bring in new ideas for you that you might not see. I say this Les Brown quote all the time, “You can't see the picture when you're in the frame.”
So there might be some really great opportunities staring you in the face, but you can't see them for some reason. You might have your blinders on, like the racehorses, or it could be that you didn't even know that it was possible.
One of the things I love to do for my clients is showing them ways to reach more than 1 goal at the same time. When they say, “Oh, yeah, I want to do this.” Then I respond, “Awesome. Well, when you do that, think about this other piece to tag on.” I love efficiency and productivity and making things easier, especially in a lean type of business.
When you have help to see what else is possible then you’ll know how to have your goals work for you in three, four other ways. This may mean you bring in multiple streams of income, or it's easier to achieve multiple goals at the same time or you do the work once but it feeds you, pays you, helps you out two to three times.
Just make sure you are bringing someone else in who is ahead of you in your business growth or your life growth, so they can share best practices with you.
These three solutions will increase your confidence in making your goals.
