Make a mission statement as specific as possible for your project/dream/goal.

Make sure your goal is as specific as possible. Let’s use the goal of ” I want to be rich”, as an example. If you have in your mind that you want to be rich, as a goal, you are being too general. The goal is so general, that you will not even know if you made it or not. Describe rich. Are you referring to monetary value? If you are earning $10,000 today, how much more do you have to make to consider yourself “rich”?

If you say, “I want to have in my possession $300,000, by December 31, 2020, you have now made a specific target. This new target is so specific. On December 31, 2020, you can know definitely whether you made your goal, or not. Does that make sense?

When you give a specific date in your goal, then you will know between now and then, how much progress, you are or are not making. When you have an idea that you are far away from your specific goal, then it is possible to make adjustments along the way.

I hope this helps you. Set your goal as specific as possible. This will increase your chance of success.

I wish you the best of luck.

Pick a dream…and GO FOR IT!

Decide.

Decide. This is the first word in my four step process to achieve success.

  • Decide
  • Plan
  • Progress
  • Achieve

Whatever your dream is, you absolutely MUST take the first step, which is to DECIDE. “The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”

Lao Tzu

You can daydream, you can write down your specific goal, you can yell from the mountaintop. You must have the conversation with yourself and DECIDE that you are  going to go through with your plan.

Whatever your dream is. Remember that it is YOUR dream. Even if no one else understands it. It is not their dream, so of course no one else might see it. The thing is that no one else can achieve it as well. You are the only one who can achieve YOUR goal.

Makes sense, right?

Best of luck to you.
