Putting Your Goals On Paper Is The First Step To Achieving Them

Successful people in all fields have something in common: They have made a commitment to write to themselves.

They have written down what they expect to happen in their lives, and they keep reminding themselves of it as often as they can.  Have you written to yourself lately?  How can you achieve your goals if you don’t know what they are?

Success isn’t so much about achieving an end goal:  it’s about the process.  Every time you write down a reasonable, manageable goal that can realistically be achieved if you work hard enough, you build belief in yourself and 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 write it down.

Then you need to work out the steps necessary to achieve this goal.  Do you get a job or start up on your own?  That is your first step, so write it down.

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, write it down.

Then once your business is profitable, you can move into other products or services to increase your revenue streams.  That is your next step, write it down.

Not everyone is going to achieve every goal they set.  But don’t forget, you always the the results you deserve:  No more, and no less.
