Achieving Your Ultimate Goal is Easy When You Know How

Posted on

I am the kind of person who always has the ultimate goal of being the best, but I approached everything step by step.

I read this quote by Michael Jordan recently and it struck me in its simplicity.  Michael Jordan was undoubtedly one of the best basketball players of all time, yet he recognises that his success was more to do with hard work than inherent talent.

You see the problem with naturally talented people is that they are so used to being the best at everything, sometimes they never really learn to work hard and be persistent.  Then, when they come up against something that will take effort or persistence to achieve, oftentimes they haven’t built the skill set necessary to get there.

You see success isn’t so much about achieving an end goal:  it’s about the process.  Every time you set a reasonable, manageable goal that can realistically be achieved if you work hard enough, you build confidence that you can do it.  Every time you reach one of those goals, it builds on the one before it, until you achieve your ultimate or end goal.

You can apply this approach to anything you choose to do.

If you want to earn $50k per year but you’re a stay at home mom, then the first thing you need to do is work out your options for earning.  Do you get a job or start up on your own?  That is your first step.  Then when you achieve that step, now you need to work out how many customers or skills you need to earn enough to cover your outgoings.  That is your next step.  Then once your business is profitable, you can move into other products or services to increase your revenue streams.

You need to take the small steps, otherwise you’re opening yourself up to all kinds of frustration.

Not everyone is going to achieve every goal they set.  

But as they old saying goes: It’s better to shoot for the moon because if you miss, you’ll land among the stars.

Question:  What will your next step need to be in order to achieve success?
