Your success in personal wealth building will be largely dependent on your ability to set the right goals.
Goal setting is one of those things which seems simple enough until you actually try to do it. Then you realize that it’s easy to overshoot or undershoot a goal, or to have your plan fail or your motivation to run out within just a few weeks.
As a part of your aspiration to succeed at personal wealth building, let’s look at a simple method for setting and achieving your goals…
Step One: Setting a Goal
The first thing to do is to set a goal, any goal…it doesn’t have to be perfect and you don’t have to even be that specific. You also don’t need a plan as to how you’re going to achieve it. Just set something down, and you can get to the details later. Most of the time, people don’t even set goals because they don’t know how they’re going to achieve them.
If you knew how to get something, you’d probably already have it. You don’t need to know how your goal is going to work or even when you’re going to achieve it by. Just set one, and move on to the next step.
Step Two: Take Whatever Action You Know to Take
If you have a goal written down, chances are you know at least the first step that you need to take. Go ahead and take it, even if you have no idea what you need to do afterwards. There’s no point in knowing the next step if you haven’t taken the first one. However, once you take the first step, your creative imagination will automatically start looking for how to take the second one, and you’d be amazed at how resourceful you’ll become in finding it. Think of it like climbing up the floors of a building, the only way you can see the set of stairs that leads to the third floor is by climbing those which lead from the first floor to the second.
Step Three: Course Correction and Goal Refinement
This third step is a continuous habit that you never divest yourself of. Anyone who is really good at getting what they want is always refining their goals and the timeline of their goals according to what they learn from consistently taking action towards achieving them. Notice that the keyword here is to refine your goal, not to change it. Personal wealth building is a process and if you want to succeed at it, you have to get good at that process.
So set a goal, and start taking action, whether the goal is completely clear or not. It will work out as you progress towards your goal. Have much success with your personal wealth building. Get started NOW…
