Create A Statement Of Professional Goals To Increase Your Income

Dec 18, 2007
Many entrepreneurs have given up setting statement of professional goals because they are convinced that such resolutions simply do not work. This may reflect a larger problem, mainly not knowing how to set and reach goals. Achieving income goals is one of the most important things in life. Just because you may have encountered some failures does not mean that you should stop setting concrete goals.

To achieve goals, there are guidelines which can be followed. While following them does not necessarily guarantee success, it is certainly preferable to giving up on goal setting. Like most things, there is no one single approach and different methods work for different people. Nevertheless, it is difficult to achieve any goals if they are not identified in the first place.

Many business experts suggest writing down your statement of professional goals as a means of activating your subconscious mind so that it can start the process of working towards it. It can help to be detailed at this stage. For example, a common goal is to create your own business.

However, rather than just writing that you want your own business, it gives your mind clearer direction if you write down details about your ideal business.

In this way, you can visualize the goal. Let your mind see you running a prosperous start up business. You can involve all the senses in this exercise. Just imagine the power and freedom of ownership.

It is a good idea to review your written goals periodically as situations change. It is not a failure to modify or forego a goal, but rather a recognition of altered circumstances.

Sharing your goals freely can be counter-productive as even well-meaning colleagues and business friends can instill negative attitudes and cause you to abandon your ambitions.

In a similar fashion, it can be a good idea to set large, albeit realistic, goals. If you shoot for the moon and miss you'll still be in the stars.

Finally, comes the most difficult part of achieving your goals and taking action! Almost everyone has goals for their business, even if only in their thoughts.

What separates those who achieve them from those that don not is not failure, but a capacity to focus and not give up. Most successful people have experienced many failures in business, whether it is a brick-and-mortar business or Internet Marketing. Nevertheless, they reach their goals because they do not let that stop them and continue to take action towards their goals.

This can have the fortunate consequence of making decisions a lot easier. Every time you need to make a decision during the day, you only have to ask yourself this question, "Does this take me closer to, or further from my statement of professional goals."
