What are the resources that can help you achieve your goal?
Look in your immediate circle of influence and identify the people that you already know that can help you achieve your goals. Try to get clarity on exactly how you would like them to assist you. Approach them with a clear request for assistance. Ask them if they are willing to offer the scope and type of assistance you require.
Once you have done this look outside your immediate circle of influence and try to identify any other people that you will approach or contact to help you with your goals. It is really important that you are clear on what type of assistance you require. It is unlikely that anyone will offer their assistance, if you are vague about what you require and what your expectations from them are. You must be clear about the exact contribution you expect and the input you require. Be very specific about the time or other commitments you would need. This exercise can include people that you can ask to coach or mentor you.
Once you have completed this exercise then really open your mind. Try to identify personality or character traits or characteristics in other people. You feel will significantly contribute to your future achievements. This exercise will program your mind to unconsciously begin looking around for the right people to help you to succeed.
What are the skill sets you possess, that you believe can contribute towards reaching your goal?
Take a long hard look at yourself and see what characteristics or skills you posses that will contribute to your sustained success. This self audit will help you assess where you are regarding your current skill set. It will also highlight any shortcomings that you may have and allow you to take action to remedy them.
This new awareness will also program your brain to start looking for what you need. Amazingly exactly that will start showing up. The more clarity you can create around your goals. The easier it is for your brain to filter the specific bits of information you need, out of the billions of bits of information you don’t require. The greater the degree of clarity you create in all areas surrounding your goals, the more powerful the assistance from the universe will be too.
What is your plan? How are you going to achieve your goal?
Once you have decided on the individual actions necessary to succeed and achieve all your goals. You now have a system that will help you realize your goals. This is more commonly referred to as the “How’. Obviously this is really important and is the key to long term sustainable success. What I want you to do now is look at each of your goals and try to see the “Why” behind each of them.
Find that one huge and inspiring reason why you want to succeed. Discover that one passionate reason that will inspire you to keep taking action even when the going gets tough. When you uncover this, you will have the tool that will help you remain disciplined and driven to succeed. Despite the inevitable challenges that will come your way.
When you understand exactly “Why” you must achieve, become, have or do something. The “Why” will become the fire that glows or explodes in your belly. This will inspire and drive you to achieve your goals. The “Why” is what will get you to make the changes you need to succeed, even the uncomfortable ones. The “Why” is what will get you through those difficult and challenging times. The “why” is the inspiration behind your goal that will make it happen for you. http://www.andrewhorton.co.za
