How To Set And Achieve Any Goal With Ease

Updated on September 24, 2014

Goal setting is a must to achieve anything in life. You must have something to focus on and a plan put in place.

Many people have been discouraged in the past because they set goals, but something always happens and they don't achieve those goals.

Sound familiar?

Well I know it does for me that is until I watched the two video's below by an expert in the area of success with goal setting and achieving Mr. John Assaraf.

So if you are serious about achieving your goals, schedule out the next hour for some serious fun learning, grab a pad of paper and pen then hit play on the first video!

Enjoy!

How To Set And Achieve Any Goal - Part 2

Goal Setting Questions To Ponder

1. Are you interested in becoming a millionaire and a good person?

OR

2. Are you committed to making some grant goals and really achieving something in life?

The difference between "Interest and Commitment"

If you are interested you will only do what’s convenient. You will do what other’s are doing and stop when you are pushed a little outside of your comfort zone.

However when you are committed, you will never have any excuse and do what it takes to achieve that goal.

The people who never so truly achieve their goals in life are the one’s that will come up with excuses and blame anything outside of themselves for their lack of hitting that goal.

These people are always hopping for something to happen.

Don’t suffer from “hopium”

Just having hope that you will hit your goals is not enough. You must commit and have your goal backed up by a process (strategy) that take’s it from being just a dream to a reality. Doing this will make it into probability instead of a possibility.

So how do you make the leap from a goal setting (hoper) to an actual achiever??

Well that leads us to Step 1 of goal setting and Achieving......

You must start with absolute precision on exactly what it is that you want to achieve.

For example: think of your goal like it's a bulls eye

Think about exactly what you you want to achieve in each of life's area's.

These areas are:

  1. Health
  2. Finances
  3. Relational
  4. Spiritual
  5. Emotional

When you are precise and specific you give your brain a command of exactly what to focus on.

People who know exactly what they want always achieve their goals vs the people who are vague about what they want to achieve.

*Set a goal that you have never achieved before.

The number one mistake that people make when setting a goal is that they look at what their bank account says or what the weight scale says or their job or past history.

Here's a rule "Do NOT let your past or situation influence your goal setting."

When you focus on the past, what you have right now or the economy, you are with every fiber of your being going to do what you are focused on. It’s how our brain works.

Set a goal that scares you a little. Set one that makes you uncomfortable because you are not sure that you can achieve it.

*You do not need to know how you are going to do it. You just need to set it!


A Simple Formula

Strategies => what you need to do

Tactics => how you need to do it

Process => a system to follow over and over again

Everyone has a daily ritual. That daily ritual will get you closer to your goals or push you farther away.

If you haven’t yet achieved your goals then you need to look at your daily rituals.

To achieve your goals you need to develop a habit/ritual to focus on your goals.

A mistake that many people make is that they never write down their goals and therefore never remind themselves of their goals on a daily basis.

So what you need to do to achieve your goals is this:

  1. WRITE down your goals
  2. Develop a plan (blueprint) or find one that is already in place
  3. Read your goals out load EVERYDAY


Remember that habits are what drives your behavior every day.

Replace your habits/daily rituals with something that will give you the same reward while at the same time getting you closer to your goal.

Have you ever wondered what causes someone to believe that they can achieve a goal, but then their behavior says different?

This is because there are two different kinds of beliefs. The person who beliefs they can achieve their goal, but their actions say otherwise is operating in the first belief.

This first belief is.....

Explicit Belief

This is when you can say and declare that you believe you can do it. It’s an external belief. It’s what you say out loud.

The second belief is......

Implicit Belief

These beliefs are what you think about in secret. In your mind.

For example you may think: “I am not smart enough, I am not disciplined enough, I don’t know if I really can do that, I don’t have enough money……..”

These beliefs are build right into the subconscious mind.

When you are reading your goals out loud every day and focusing on them, you may have that negative internal dialogue going on.

In time if you are persistent with reading your goals out loud and focusing on them, you will start to see your behavior change. You will start to attract the things in life that you need to achieve those goals.

When you take a small daily goal and achieve it what you are doing is setting up a win win response system in your brain.

So create a habit of consistency. A little bit every day of the right thinking and the right behavior will start a new belief. When you see and emotionalize your goal you will start to ingrain new implicit belief.

That is when you will start to take the actions that you have never taken before.

Ask yourself

"Why is it that I want to achieve this goal."

If your goal is to lose weight think about what losing this weight will do for you. What would be different about your life, how would you feel?

Be creative and start dreaming about what you really want in life while you are thinking about your BIG WHY.

Now that you have learned all the steps that's briefly recap them.

1.Set those grand goals

2. Create the strategies, tactics and process (STP) by understanding the triggers that cause you to do certain things. What is your habits/ daily rituals and what’s the reward for maintaining that routine.

Understand the trigger, change the routine and then get the reward.

3. Develop the beliefs you need to change the behavior.

Sit down every day and read your goals, make sure your strategies and tactics are in place, make sure that your habits line up with what you want to achieve.
