Finding Your Pot of Gold
You must always have a goal you’re working toward to stay on course. Your plan needs to be something you can attain and utilize your full potential. Don’t be afraid to aim high; make sure you are clear on your goal and exactly what you need to do to get there. You need to continue to hold yourself accountable to your goal and raise the bar as you accomplish the steps to your goal.
A few goal setting techniques to consider are:
- Exit planning: You can’t know how to get somewhere if you don’t know where you’re going.
- Fear setting, this goal-setting technique allows you to address your anxiety and hesitation. Great if you need to make a significant investment.
- SMART, great if you need to make short-term tactical goals.
No matter what you need to accomplish, excellent goal setting can make a difference in resource management.
Put Yourself Out of Business Before Your Competition Does it For You.
Once you’ve mastered these areas, you need to make sure you stay competitive and constantly come up with new ways to use your new tools. Don’t rest on one success when there are more on the horizon. To continue to be successful, your business must continue to learn and evolve.
When you get to this point, it is time to set aside 1 to 4 days a month where you, as the business owner, spend time working on your business. This means for that day; you do not answer emails, do daily tasks, etc. Instead, you spend the day thinking about opportunities and find new ways to grow your business.
Wealth from the Inside Out
Wealth and riches are defined within yourself, not by your profits or the world beyond. You can use all these strategies in both your business and life to find a greater level of success. When you naturally reflect on who you are and what you mean, you will automatically attract the right people to you. This will happen in life and business.
You can reach your goals as long as they are well-defined and a solid road is built to them.
Throughout the last several lessons, we’ve talked about how to take a hard look at the resources you currently have right in front of you, how to take advantage of them, and leverage them to maximize your results.
