Perfect Goals For Success – How To Create ThemMarch 23, 2020
Why are these goals important to us? The reason we need these goals is because they guide us to where we want to go. We are basically wandering around in the darkness and hoping that we reach the right place if we don’t have such goals. But, we also use goals as a motivational tool to give us that boost of energy to work towards them.
If you ask any motivational speaker, one of the key points they will tell you to achieve success is to write down your goals. But wait, there’s more to this story. Just writing them down doesn’t give you that energy boost that you need to achieve success but there is a secret to goal setting.
The first thing you need to do is start dreaming again and these dreams doesn’t refer to the ones that you have when you sleep at night but rather the dreams you had when you were kids like living up in a mansion when you grow up. If you dream big but only reach half way, then that’s still half way farther than if you didn’t dream at all so you shouldn’t be afraid to dream big.
Let’s get back to this mansion of yours. Just writing down a mansion in your Goals list isn’t enough. Write down details. What kind of architecture would it be? Perhaps you want it to be a fairy tale type castle. Would it be an Italian Villa? How many bedrooms? What about an indoor pool?
In order for you to picture them clearly in your mind, you need to find images of some of the things that you want and this is another secret to goal setting. Unlike if you were just thinking about the word ‘mansion,’ doing this will give your goals a sense of realism. When you find pictures of indoor swimming pools or pictures of Italian Villas or anything that you desire, then you can try imagining yourself there.
If you are a car guy, then it’s likely you have a few cars on your list. Right now, you might drive a BMW, but that’s not enough. If you want to hit it big you have to dream big so add more BMWs, Porches, and even Ferraris if you want. The colors that you want and all the options that each car provides is what you need to know about. It will seem much more real if you get down with all the details.
So, you can start with making a list of your goals but you need to go farther. Try getting into the details. Find images as well. Picture yourself owning those items already. Helping you in whatever venture you choose to go with is this kind of thinking.
