What if I told you one thing that would put you in the top three percent of Americans and put you ahead of the pack? This simple procedure will determine your future success more than almost anything else, yet a staggering 97% of people do not take the time to do it. What is it, you ask? Goal Setting.
I know you’ve probably heard of goal setting a thousand times, but have you created your list of goals? Probably not. I know it sounds harsh, but most people have a vague idea of what they want but never actually sit down and decide what they want. So many people say they want to write a book and make more money. Ok. Well, here you go. Write the book, upload it to Amazon, beg your mom to buy it, and now you have more money. I’m sure that’s not what you meant, but it technically achieved your vague goal.
A well-thought-out goal is like a compass. It points you in the right direction; it keeps you on target and helps clarify your dreams. So what kind of goals do you need to be a successful writer? Well, that depends on how you define success. A New York Times Bestselling author has different goals than a grandfather writing a children’s book for his grandkids. Decide today what exactly you want, and then write it down.
Start your goal-setting session on a positive note by writing down five things you’ve already accomplished. Then spend the next few minutes creating a list of desires by answering this question, “What would I love?”
Remember when we were all kids, and someone asked us what we wanted for Christmas? We didn’t think of practical things. We wanted a flying car, a purple pony, a rainbow unicorn, etc. After a while, we become more cynical and stop asking for our desires and ask for practical things. A lot of times, we don’t even ask at all.
I want you to step out of the practical mindset for this goal-setting exercise and get back into that childlike imagination. It’s still there somewhere deep within the recesses of your mind. Dig it out, dust off the cobwebs, and put it to use.
What would you love if I had a magic wand and everything worked perfectly? Include desires from every aspect of your life. Make sure to include relationship goals, spiritual goals, financial and personal. Don’t miss any area of your life. Write for a solid half-hour if need be. Let it all out without holding back. Then you can look back over your desires and start setting goals and creating plans.
Remember what Les Brown said, “Shoot for the moon. If you miss, you’ll still be out there among the stars.”
