Do you have a plan?

So often we get clear on what we want but have no plan on getting there. Part of being clear about what you want is having a plan for how you are going to get there.

The first step is certainly to get clear on what you want. Actually sit down and visualise it, see yourself there, what does it look like, feel like and sound like. Get as much detail as you can. Review where you are right now, where do you want to be. For example if your plan is to be able to be at home with your children as they grow up and work from home. Then you will need to find a way to do this. Sitting on the sideline of life is not going to get you there. You will need to do something.

Question one: I ask myself with every action I take is – Is this action, task or step going to move me closer or further away from my goals.

Question two: How would I take this action step if I had already achieved this goal? How would I act, what would I say, How would I stand, How would I feel? Take action from that place.

Sometimes we are in such a hurry to reach the goal that we do not want to take the time to do the plan. The plan is the essence of results. If we skip all the steps, then we can end up at a goal other than that which we wished and dreamed in the first place. I am sure that you have heard of people winning lotto and then later on going bankrupt.

They did not have a plan for that financial abundance in their life and most often have not worked on their mindset to keep it.

Set the goal, work the plan and then work on yourself harder than anything else to put yourself and your mindset in a place to allow it in.

Abundance is less likely to come into chaos. Get your chaos and clutter in your life in order to make room for what you want. So often people say I do not have enough time, yet in 6 months time they are doing more. For example this may mean that you need to get a book keeper to get your books in order, this is essential. I have heard that the state of your work environment or car can tell you a lot about a person. Whether this is true or not, I certainly feel better and work more clearly when I have a clear space to do so. Clear space in my environment means clear space in my head.

From my experience I had a vision of being able to be at home with Jasmine each and every day. In order to do that I needed a means other than the 9-5 I was doing. So I found a home business and have continued to work that business with my vision in mind. Now I enjoy each and every day at home with Jasmine. I travel the world with her and Paul and we have the pleasure of making a fabulous income.

Just to recap: Get clear on what you want, make a plan, find a way to work the plan, stick to the plan, clear and organise yourself so that you can allow the result to arrive.

So if I can do, you can do it. So when are you going to begin?

Goal setting doesn’t work

Have you set goals in the past and they have never worked, have you given up on what you really want to achieve. Have you struggled to get yourself moving? Have you set New Year’s resolutions only to find one week later you have given up?

What is the reason for all of this? Do you really know how to set goals for yourself that will inspire you to jump out of bed in the morning?

Here are our top goals setting tips that have been proven to produce results and be the most effective time and time again:

Write down what you really want if you knew you could not fail. For example – To be a millionaire, to work from home, to run your own business, to sky dive or bungy jump.

Then look at that list of things you want to achieve and pick 3 things that stand out to you as the most important

For each of those 3 goals take the time to work out why you want them, and what it will mean to you when you have achieved them

Write a paragraph down about how you have already achieved them

Then ask yourself the following:

  • When am I going to start?
  • What is the very first action step that I can take to move myself closer to my goal
  • Ask yourself each day, is this action taking me closer or further away from my goal?
  • Then ask yourself what is the very next step I can take
  • Make a list of agreements with yourself that you will uphold each day in regards to this goal
  • Put your action plan together and sign it off
  • Stay true to your word
  • Write up your goal, and action plan and put it up somewhere where you can read it a few times a day
  • Start visualising yourself as already achieved this goal
  • Be in complete gratitude for where you are and where you are going
  • And finally ask yourself everyday: How would the person I want to be, do what I am about to do?

Enjoy and celebrate in your achievements. “Every great achievement is preceded by a period of fanatical dedication”.
