You Can Reach Any Goal In 7 Easy Steps

There is a difference between people that reach their goals on a regular basis and those that do not. That difference is always some variation of the following seven steps to success.

Whether you are a student struggling to succeed in school, or a mega-millionaire figuring out your next big project, the process is the same.

Become clear about what you want...
Be specific about what your goal is. It is not enough to say I want to be rich. Instead an attainable goal would say "I want $100,000". Don't say I want a better house. Say "I want a 4 bedroom brick ranch on a quarter acre in Tucson". The clearer you can be about what you want, the easier it is for you to get there.

Make it real...
Write down your goal and put it on the bathroom mirror. A goal not written down is nothing more than a wish. The act of committing it to writing makes it real. Keeping it in front of you every day acts like a nagging friend to hold you accountable for achieving it.

Paint a target...
Determine when you want your goal to happen. Then include the date in your goal. None of us ever do things without a deadline. Think back to when you were in school. Would you have done your homework if it was not going to be collected the next day? Setting target dates motivates us all to do the things necessary to make our goals come true.

What will it take...
This is where lists are your friend. Make a list of everything you can think of that you will have to do to reach your goal. Revisit the list regularly and add to it as you think of new things. Keep adding to the list until you reach your goal.

Put some structure into your plan...
Not every item on the list is as important as the others. Organize your list into the things that are most important and those that are less important. Then arrange them in some order that makes sense to you. Do the first things first. For example, you can not paint the house until you buy the paint.

Start Now...
Don't wait for the right time. Taking action is the most important step in reaching your goals. As you move toward your goal it will get easier to keep going. Like rolling a stone across a field, the most energy is expended in getting it started. Take some action. Just get moving now.

Be Consistent...
Get in the habit of doing something every day. As you mark the items off your list, your momentum will grow. There is something very magical about moving closer to a goal. So do something every single day that moves you closer to your goals.

If you begin to take these steps on a regular basis you will be amazed at how much you accomplish and how easy it really is to reach any goal.
