The Secret to Making Goals Happen
by Ann Rusnak

Facts about goals

  • Success is almost inevitable when the goal becomes an inner commitment. Researchers agree there is nothing more important than writing it down.
  • Writing specific objectives and reviewing them frequently will help you release the energy, creativity and the drive to attain them.
  • A Harvard Business School study found:
          83% of the population do not have any clearly defined goals.
          14% have goals but not written down.
          3% of the population have goals that are written down.
  • The study concluded that the 3 percent that did have written goals were earning an astounding 10 times that of the 83 percent group. In addition, similar studies have shown that individuals with written goals also tend to have better health and happier marriages than those without goals.

The power of written goals is indisputable.

Writing your goals down is the first step to any action. Write them down anywhere. Even the palm of your hand is expectable if nothing else is available to write them on. Why is writing your goals so important? It creates a commitment in your mind. That gives you the momentum to achieve your immediate goals. Writing them is even more crucial for your long term goals.

Second Step is your goals need a deadline. They are just wishes without one. Your deadlines can be flexible. The deadline puts your goal into the real world of working within time frames.

What happens if you miss your target date? The fear of failure of not making that date is why many of us don't write those goals down in the first place. Missing the deadline is not failure. You just under estimated the time frame required to accomplish it. Just move your deadline into a more realist time table of achieving your goal

Remember! Only 3% of the population write down their goals. Even if you missed YOUR deadline, you have already done more than 97% of the population.

Write your goals as if they have already been achieved. This triggers an important process in the subconscious. The subconscious mind start working toward the written goal. You don’t have to keep thinking about them.

Writing your goals down does not replace working them. You still need a goals action plan to make them a reality but this simple act of writing your goals down, virtually ensures that you'll accomplish them especially if you follow theses action steps:

17 Action Steps Toward Goal Achievement

  1. Change
          C - Challenge & Courage
          H - Hang in There
          A - Attitude
          N - Necessary
          G - Go for It
          E - Effort with Enthusiasm
  2. Break down your goals into smaller steps- SMART
          S-small steps
          M-managable
          A- achievable
          R- realistic
          T- tangible
  3. Write down your headline goals
  4. Assign a date to each goal
  5. Check off each goal as you achieve it
  6. Reward yourself
  7. Review your goals weekly put them in your daily planner
  8. Share your goals with others
  9. Visualize, Perceive and Believe in your goals
  10. Cultivate a support group
  11. Make the Commitment

  13. Ensure Your Attitude
  14. Daily Disciplined Accountability
  15. Change Your Vocabulary
  16. Stay in Shape
  17. DO IT NOW! TAKE ACTION!

Your goals should be posted in places where you will see them frequently. Carry them with you so you can review your goals at an instant. Remember it's OK to change your goal, but it's not OK not to have them.
