There are many different ideas and methodologies behind goal setting but the one truth I believe is by writing and speaking them aloud you start to manifest them into reality. That’s not to say that all you can do is write them down and talking about them and you will achieve them. Your effort and work ethic must propel you towards those goals. So I want to share with you a story about goals and work.
I have a friend a friend and former teammate whose company was just named the #1 wholesale mortgage business in the nation. This is a guy who took over a management position and immediately began asking why can’t we be number 1?
There was nothing stopping him and their team from going from an unranked company to the top spot in the business. This is when the concept of stating your goals began for him. He took time to write down daily, weekly, monthly, yearly, 5 year and 10 year goals. He talked about them to his family, too his team, to anybody who would listen and almost more importantly he worked extremely hard.
He put in the sweat equity that it takes and he did it every single day. He found a way to do something every single day that would continue the momentum he had built the previous day. He’s not the most talented guy but I can attest to the fact that he has been obsessed with reaching the #1 spot and now that he’s gotten it I’m sure he’s obsession will continue to grow so they will stay there.
One of the good things about goals is that you get to define them for yourself. You don’t have to rely on any external forces creating the things you want to achieve.
The greatest thing about goals is that no one else can put the work in for you to achieve them.
