FACT: 95% of the people are dead broke at age 65 and only
FACT: 5% are financially independent.
FACT: 95% of people do not have their goals and dreams written down with pictures up of what they want!
FACT: 5% do have their goals and dreams in writing.
Hmm……could there be a correlation here?!
It really is important that each day you stay focused on your goals.
Do you have them written down?
Do you have pictures of them in a prominent place?
Do you know exactly what you have to do in terms of activity every week, month and year to reach your goal?
What is your 4 month goal? (Please no Lamborghini’s for this 4 month period!)
Let’s have realistic goals and then link that goal with your daily activity. When you know this goal (Clear Concise Mental Picture) nothing can stop you!
When you find the “want to” you will find the “How To”. When you get the “FIRE IN YOUR BELLY” nothing will stop you.
*My Personal Story*
My first year goal was getting out of debt. I cut up my credit cards, melted them onto some tin foil in the oven and framed it!
I wrote down the debt freedom date. I joined A.L. Williams in May 1981 and wrote down to be debt free by December 31st 1981 – 7 Months to payoff 3 credit card bills and 2 cars. The total was $14,000. This meant I had to get 2 clients (in a 5* market) per week at Team Leader level. This equated to 4 appointments per week, 3 Scoops, 2 clients and 1 or 2 recruits.
Did I hit this every week? No, but I did it 95% of the time!
We had a schedule up on the wall (like a thermometer) to pay off this horrible, burdensome debt of $14,000 over 7 months. My first two months I made nothing but, we read our goal every day when we woke up and before we went to bed at night.
It became a Clear Concise Mental Picture (CCMP), it became a BURNING DESIRE. I ardently wanted to be debt free.
We (yes, it was a joint goal) were determined to dig our way out and helping others with their financial problems and educating them financially, while we made money, seemed to make sense!
How could we go wrong? All it would take was the required discipline to go call people and follow the 3rd Party Referral System. I realised my daily discipline determined my future. All it would take was doing the ncomfortable things in our business (getting on the phone, going to their home, etc…) to get the comfortable things in life.
How bad do you want your goal between now and year end? Before you know it the Olympics will be over and Christmas 2012 has gone by.
Do you have your goals written down?
Do you have pictures up of them?
Do you have a daily plan to get there?
How will you feel when you accomplish your goal?
How much better will you feel and your bank account look?
If it is to be, it’s up to me. You can do it with a CCMP!
