Most of us already know that it is vitally important to write your goals down.
The simple mechanical act of writing makes your goal visible and tangible. That’s no longer just a thought!
Now it’s a commitment.
But there is one rule you must follow to succeed that very few know.
It’s not enough to write your goal down…
… You have to describe it in complete detail!
Make it as specific as possible.
“I want to buy a new home”
“I want to live in a new two story gorgeous Victorian style home with 4 spacious bedrooms, luxurious living room with a fireplace and hardwood floors. I will enjoy my large backyard with swimming pool and patio…”
“I want to make a lot of money” is not the goal.
It’s just a wish.
“I want to make $10.000 monthly with my business by July 1st.”
Now that’s the goal.
After writing your goal down in complete details don’t forget to make it visible! You can write it on a yellow note and stick it on your computer. Or even better. Print it so it would fit 4×6 picture frame, then frame it and put it on your desktop. You can also print it on your business card and put it in your wallet.
Try to surround yourself with little reminders.
This will help you to stay focused on your goal and create a clear mental image of what you want.
