Six Musts for Achieving Your Goals

By John Assaraf

We've all been through it at least once in our lives. We decide to make a change: Make more money, lose weight, quit smoking, start exercising, whatever. We set goals and work toward them. And for a while, there is progress.

Then we start to slip, and before we know it we are back where we started. This happens all the time. The source of the backsliding isn't that people lack self-motivation or willpower. The primary reason that so many people don't achieve their objectives is that they have no idea how to create workable goals and maintain the forward motion necessary to make them happen.

Successful people are masters at setting and reaching goals. If you interact with people who have "made it," you will see patterns that anyone can apply. Here are seven goal-achieving "musts" from the "success masters":

  1. Balance your goals to balance your life.
    Develop goals in six areas of life: relationships, spiritual, contribution, financial, health and business. By pursuing goals in each area, you will create a more balanced and integrated life.

  2. Aim high.
    As the now-cliched saying goes: Shoot for the stars, if you miss you'll still be on the moon. Get out of your comfort zone. Make your goals slightly unreasonable; in other words, don't allow your (perceived) limitations to get in the way. Don't allow your old conditioning to stop you from going after what you really want.

  3. Write out goals in detail.
    Just the act of writing down goals sets the process in motion, so be specific. Instead of writing, say, "A new home," write "A 4,500-square-foot ranch home on five acres of lakefront property with vaulted ceilings, 4 bedrooms, 3 baths, and a private boat dock." The more information you include, the more probable the final result will be. By being as accurate as possible you invoke some of the natural laws of the universe in your favor as well as getting your brain to work for you in the most efficient way possible.

  4. Make your goals consistent with your values.
    Most people don't do what they value first and therefore find themselves stressed and out of alignment. Create a list of your highest values and then create your goals around them. This will give you a sense of being on purpose consistently. Every goal must have two things: 1) A detailed plan to achieve it and 2) the right beliefs and mindset. You can kiss your goals goodbye without these two items. So, what do you have to believe and what can you start to do immediately to move you towards your goals and dreams?

  5. Review your goals daily.
    This is an important part of achieving success and must become routine. Review your list of goals each morning when you wake up. Visualize your completed goals and how your life looks and feels as a result. Each night before you go to bed, repeat the process. This is a great way to train your brain to expect your goals to materialize.

  6. Finally, don't get discouraged.
    You will either achieve your goal, or you will gain insight into whatever is in the way of its achievement. This is not a setback; rather, it is part of your forward progress. Stay focused on what you want to achieve and you will find ways to solve difficulties or break through barriers.
Celebrate every success and contextualize your accomplishments within the framework of your goals. Before you know it, you'll have to make a whole new list for "next level achievement!"
