Last week, we outlined how to set goals. This week, we’ll cover accountability and building a strategic plan for your goals.
Brian Tracy says, “You can learn anything you want to learn. You can become anything you want to become.” But with anything, we should always be accountable for our actions.
Darren Hardy, creator and editor of SUCCESS Magazine, says, “The only person’s fault for your life is you.” We should take on 100% responsibility with 0% expectation in return.
As you figure out what goals you’d like to achieve in the (near) future, keep in mind that you can only get there if you are willing to put in the work and push yourself to your limits in order to reach new ones. It doesn’t matter where you came from. It only matters where you’re going. And you only move forward by keeping yourself accountable of the tasks ahead of you.
By putting in the work, you will improve and get real results. It may take time, but patience and diligence are key. Keep working towards your goals and you will reach your destination.
Now, imagine that you can do anything, that you have no limitations. Imagine your ideal life in five years. What are you doing? What does your life look like?
Visualization is a powerful tool in goal-setting and achieving desired results.
So, ask yourself these questions:
What kind of life do I want?
In what area of my life do I need to be more accountable?
Create a clear picture of your ideal life and think about what you have to do today to achieve your vision. That is your goal, your mission to accomplish.
Remember that nothing is impossible. We’ve all heard of wondrous successes from unlikely places. We may not end up famous like Steve Jobs (who dropped out of school yet managed to build a multi-billion dollar business in tech), but we can be like him in achieving success in our lives if we put our hearts & minds to it.
Believing in you always,
