7 Critical Keys For Success, Part 3

May 17, 2008
Are you in the same old place? Are you looking to have a break out year? Looking to take charge of your life? Many people start off their Networking business with great hopes but no idea what it takes to make it successful. One must understand this simple but hard truth. We are where we are in life due to the way we think and the actions we take. If you are not in the place you want to be then we MUST change our thinking and actions. If you always do what you have always done you will always have what you had (author unknown). Learning to master these 7 critical areas will help you avoid the pitfalls that derail most people.

3. Develop A Mental MAP

Nothing happens, nothing changes until we put our success plan into action. As simple as this is I have watched countless people get stuck right here. It is so easy to let our daily routine interfere with our plans to have a breakout year. So we are going to do something that I am sure your not going to like when I say it. That's right-goal setting! Done wrong they can be a hindrance, done right it can be fun and motivating. Just a little note, all and I mean all successful people are goal oriented. If you feel like you don't need to set goals then why do all successful people do it?

When you put a goal into your brain (especially when you review it daily) your subconscious mind will work unceasingly to bring this to a reality. First keep your goals somewhat achievable, shoot for the sky but be a little real (like maybe making a billion dollars in the next 10 days is a little unreal)? Write out your goals in detail, as much detail as you can picture. If you want a house- describe it in every way. Size, color, location, square footage, design, furniture, the paint, the appliances etc. Make your goals measurable, so anyone can measure the result. If you want to loose weight, don't say I want to loose 30 pounds in 90 days. Instead state the exact weight you want to be on the exact date you want it. For example, I want to weigh 140 lbs. by June 1st, 2008. Always write your goals in a fashion that you are in the process of becoming, in the present tense as much as possible. For example, I am excited that I am in the process of loosing 30 lbs and will weigh 140 lbs by June 1st. Now write a life goal, a 5 year goal, a one year goal, a 6 month goal, a 3 month goal, a one month goal, a one week goal, and a daily goal. Now let us make a life MAP, a Motivational Action Program. To Motivate us we need reasons why we want to accomplish a goal. To loose 30 lbs. is not the why, it is the what. What will loosing 30 lbs. do for you? How will you feel? What will it help you accomplish? Having good reasons will help motivate us during the hard times. Next write down all the Actions that you could possibly take to help you reach your goals. Write down as many different actions that you can think of. Having options provides hope and supports our motivation. Finally, write down the Program you are going to take. This is the planning part, which action(s) I will take, how often, how long, etc. This is even more powerful if you plan rewards at different levels along the way. A good example might be, when I loose 10 lbs. I will buy some new clothes. Create goals for each of the following ares; body (physical), mind (self improvement), spirit(whatever your beliefs are), relationships, and financial. To attract the things you want in life, strive to have as much balance in all parts of life as possible. There are areas that you will be satisfied with and areas that you are always working to improve. I suggest that you rewrite your entire list every 3- 6 months. To see a completed goals chart go to www.letenergyheal.com/map.html.

Now let us put this MAP into motion. Set up one day a week, I use Sunday evenings, to do this. Take at least 20 minutes and lock your self away. I mean away, away from kids, pets, phones- everything and everybody. Review your entire goal lists, and visualize the emotions, the pictures, the sounds and smells that the accomplishment of each of these goals will bring you. Make it as real as possible, you will come to thoroughly cherish this time. Take your daily and weekly goals and schedule it, actually write it down on a calendar or planner. For example, if I want to loose weight I would schedule in my exercise time each day, and maybe even a time to cook some healthy lunches to take to work with me. It doesn't become real until you schedule it, until then it is just a good idea. Now review your goals from last week to see if your on schedule, ahead or behind. Make adjustments, don't judge and move on. Your daily goals will keep you on track for your weekly goals, which will keep you on track for your monthly goals and so on. Plan on reading and visualizing your short term goals (one year or less) at least twice a day. Following this plan will give you motivation and excitement to keep on the track to success. The biggest thing it will give you is results; small daily steps add up to enormous results over time. Stay in action, and stay focused. Step 4 will show you how to do this on a daily basis.
