Now that you know what you REALLY want for yourself and your business (and if you don’t you need to go back and read my previous post), it’s time to move forward and Start getting the results you desire!
The One Thing That Gets Results
Everyone wants to be successful, but not everyone is willing to do what it takes. The vast majority of humanity would rather wish and dream than do. And that doing is the key to success. Only actions will bring you the results you desire. There is ABSOLUTELY NOTHING ELSE that can create success for you. Wishes and dreams are a beginning, but they are NOT the means to the end result.
So, now that you know what you want, you need to determine the actions you need to take in order to get there. How? By starting at the end and working backward. Look at where you want to be in your business and in your life twenty years from now. It may be difficult for you to imagine actually achieving that level of success, but unless you’re dreaming of something that is truly impossible, you can get there.
Next, look at where you want to be ten years from now and ask yourself if that goal will help you get to your twenty year goal. It should. If it doesn’t seem to fit, tweak it.
Now look at your five year goal and ask yourself if that will help you get to your ten year goal. And then, look at your one year goal and see if that fits with your five year goal. What you should see in each goal is a certain level of growth that will help you reach your next goal.
Keep It Flexible
Of course, goals can change along the way. Nothing should ever be ridgid or set in stone. If your goals don’t need some tweaking now, they will at a later date. Sometimes opportunities come up that you never could have imagined and goals need to be tweaked in order to take advantage of them. Other times, something doesn’t go the way you thought it would, and you’ll find you need to change your goal because of that. Your goals should be flexible.
What You Must Focus On Now
The most important of your goals is your one year goal. This is the one you really want to focus on because it is responsible for getting you to your five years ,which in turn is responsible for getting you to your ten year goal and so on. Look at your one year goal and ask yourself what it’s going to take to get you there.
If your one year goal is simply to be the author of a booklet that is selling, that’s an easy goal to achieve. You can write your booklet in as little as 24 hours if you’re truly dedicated, or if you have other time constraints it might take you a week or two. In any case, the writing and production of your booklet won’t take long, and in just a month or two you’ll have a finished booklet ready for your market. In that case, you’ll want to work on the sales aspect of your goal.
If, on the other hand, your goal is to expand your business and your income, you’ll want to be specific as to how much you wish to expand and what you’ll need to do in order to achive this goal. If you would like to double your income, you’ll need to consider the products you already have on the market, which ones are your best sellers, and what new products would compliment them that your market will snap up.
These are just a couple of simple examples to get you started. The bottom line is that without action you can’t get anywhere. Your dreams and goals will never be achieved. Action is the one thing, and the ONLY thing, that can get you the results you want. Start taking action now!
