Have you achieved what you set out to achieve in 2017? Earlier today I was asked whether I am proud of what I have accomplished this year. My first thought was – thankfully I still have 2 whole months to achieve was I planned to achieve, so I have time on my side. My second thought was – but what exactly was my goal for this year and have I spent enough time and energy on this? So often I simply say I will get to it next year, and without realising it, I am not moving forward, not achieving my full potential at work and even at home. By doing that, I am stagnating and staying in my comfort zone.
Realising I needed help and direction on what I can accomplish in these last few weeks, I found this brilliant guide by Brian Tracy. It has given me hope and a path to follow and I hope it does the same for you.
|Seven Steps to Success, by Brian Tracy|
He starts by advising that you need self-discipline in order to be the very best in your field.
“Self-discipline is the ability to make yourself do what you should do when you should do it, whether you feel like it or not.” It is easy to do something only when you feel like it. It’s when you don’t feel like it and you force yourself to do it anyway, that you move your life and career onto the fast track.
There is a powerful seven step formula that you can use to set and achieve your goals for the rest of your life. Every single successful person uses this formula or some variation of it, to achieve vastly more than the average person. And so can you. Here it is:
Step 1: Decide What You Want
Decide exactly what it is you want in each part of your life.
Step 2: Write it Down
Always think on paper. A goal that is not in writing is not a goal at all. It is merely a wish and it has no energy behind it.
Step 3: Set a Deadline
Deadlines acts as a “forcing system” in your subconscious mind. It motivates you to do the things necessary to make your goal come true.
Step 4: Make a List
Think of everything that you are going to have to do to achieve your goal. When you think of new tasks and activities, write them on your list until your list is complete.
Step 5: Organize Your List
Arrange your list into a plan, then decide what you will have to do first and what you will have to do second. Decide what is more important and what is less important. And then write out your plan on paper.
Step 6: Take Action
Take action on your plan. Do something. Do anything. But get busy. Get going.
Step 7: Do Something Every Day
Do something every single day that moves you in the direction of your most important goal at that moment. Develop the discipline of doing something 365 days each year that is moving you forward. You will be absolutely astounded at how much you accomplish when you utilize this formula in your life every single day.
