achievers

G’day gorgeous souls!

Let’s talk GOALS for a moment, shall we?

Oh, what’s that?  It’s not January, you say? Coz you know, goals do NOT happen JUST for New Year’s. We shouldn’t be talking about them just then. We need to start getting more intimate with them than that!

Guess what?

Good goal setting happens ALL the ding dang time. Not just January 1.

And, actually, if you think about it for a mo, it’s kinda the perfect time for some good goddess goal getting:

  • We’re halfway through the year.
  • It’s just past solstice
  • We’re in the throes of full blaze summer/winter {depending on what side of the globe you hail from!}
  • 7 (as in July) is a lucky number my favourite number

OK, I’m stretching a bit with that last one!  But I firmly believe that goal setting is a year-round practice.

So let’s have a little mid-year goal-a-palooza.

But first, let’s talk about why I’m such a goal goddess.  I saw these stats from a goal guy {aka a goalie – geddit? geddit?} named Dr. David Kohl who studies these things.  He said:

  • 80% of Americans claim that they don’t have goals
  • 16% of them have goals, but they don’t write them down
  • Only 3% actually have written goals, but they don’t review them regularly
  • Only 1% has written goals and they review them regularly, and these are among the highest achievers in the US

Or for those of who you read in images like moi:

OK, so whether you’re in the US or anywhere else in the whole wide world, if you’re one of that 1% that’s writing down your goals and reviewing them, HOLY MOTHER!  You’ve just raced to the front of the line, haven’t you?!?

And, I mean, for what? For making a doodly little list!!!

Yes, there’s more to it than making a list, but writing down your goals is the first step to success.

May I suggest you pin that, tweet it, print it out, hang it up, and stick it to your forehead, because it’s THAT TRUE.

 

My hunky hubby once asked me how many goals I had.

And my answer was in the triple digits.

I don’t think he was expecting that!  HA!

Yes, it’s true that I have more goals than the average person. But I also achieve a lot more than the average person!  I think there’s a correlation there, don’t you?

 

3 step solution to your dreams coming true!

So if you really want your dreams to come true… here’s your three step formula to success. Around here I’d make some fancy dance reference, but I am really fucking uncoordinated and can only dance The Running Man and The Leonie Crazy Dance. But pretend I’ve made a punny dance reference, and we can both pretend to be cultured normals, okly dokly? HIGH FIVES!

Enough of the ridunkulous, here’s the juice…

Your Mission This Month

So wanna be successful? Wanna be that top 1%

Schedule in a goal-check THIS MONTH.

If you did do some goal-setting in January, maybe in the form of the 2014 Create Your Amazing Life Workbook, go back and look at them this month.

You can:

  • do it RIGHT NOW
  • schedule an artist’s date with yourself to check-in
  • or see if your mastermind wants to review together (PUBLIC ACCOUNTABILITY ROCKS!)

How many have you done? How many have you started? How many just don’t even resonate with your path any more?  What’s the next one you should tackle?

And if you HAVEN’T done any goal setting in a while, then let’s have a little reviewsie of how to do it properly!

Goals keep my actions in line with my intentions.

If you haven’t written any goals lately…

or you haven’t achieved any of the goals you did write…

or you honestly don’t KNOW if you’ve achieved the goals you wanted to… (It happens!!)

Chances are, you weren’t being specific enough, my lovelies.

Goals are like small children: they need very specific instructions!

If you wrote down, “I want to rock my launch this month!” how will you really know if you rocked it?  I mean, what does rocking it look like? Is it 100 sales? 5 sales? 5,000 sales?  And what if you got a good number of sales, but not quite as many as you hoped for, but you did get some good press from it, and a few new signups to your list, but again not as many as you’d hoped and—

WOAH.

Maybe it would be easier to have a goal like:

I will reach 300 people who need this product with this launch.

Boom.  Done.

And will you know when you’ve reached that goal? You bet you will!  Cross it off and pop the champagne!

What about personal goals?  Should your goal say, “I want to spend more time with my family,” or—

I will have switch-off Sundays when I step AWAY from the computer and spend the day with my family.

It’s a lot easier to tell if you’ve achieved that then “spend more time with” right?

So let’s review our steps again:

Step 1. Write down your goals

Step 2. Make them über specific

Step 3. Review them

Step 4. Wild, amazing, unbridled success!

Once you know the specific goal – the number, the time frame, the people – you’ll know when it’s tick-off-able.

And let’s be TOTALLY HONEST: there’s really nothing better than crossing something off your goals list, is there?

I don’t think so!

So, look at this as your friendly neighborhood reminder to get off your duff and get yer goal setting on!

Get out your Create Your Amazing Life Workbook (or go get yourself one!), review your goals, and make them happen!

Goal setting is practical magic, my lovelies, and you can make it happen today.

To all your biggest dreams,
