7 Hacks to Make Goals More Attainable

  1. 1. STEP #1: CLARITY IS KEY Vague goals don’t inspire action. That’s why it’s important to get very specific about what you really want. Make sure your goals are specific and measurable… What do you want? Why do you want it? When will you achieve it by? So your goal isn’t “I want to sell a lot of houses.” It’s “I’m going to sell 25 houses at an average price of 250K by December 24 so I can take my family to Europe.”
  2. 2. STEP #2: VISUALIZE IT Have you ever created a vision board? It might sound like an old-school exercise, but that doesn’t mean it’s not powerful. Create your own vision board not just about the monetary reward or the experiences you plan to enjoy, but also one that shows you actually doing the work.When you add in everything that needs to happen to achieve your goal, it helps you create clarity around exactly how you’ll get there
  3. 3. STEP #3: CONDITION YOURSELF DAILY Create a dailyvisualization discipline. We’ve all heard the stories of champion athletes who saw him or herself winning the title thousands of times before actually achieving the feat. This is the same thing. Simply close your eyes and see yourself achieving your goal, and make sure to do this EVERY DAY! In doing so, you’re conditioningyour conscious and unconscious mind, which is a very powerful thing.
  4. 4. STEP #4: “AFFIRM” YOUR INTENTIONS The next step is to convert your goals into affirmations in your dialogue with yourself. No longer is it “I want to earn $250,000.” It’s now “I earn $250,000.” The key is to always state your goal in the positive and as if it’s already been achieved. This isn’t about fooling yourself. It’s about training yourself to succeed. When you state these affirmations, you’re programming your mind to do the things that will achieve the desired results. And when your mind believes these affirmations, your behaviors will naturally align with your goals.
  5. 5. STEP #5: ACTIVATE YOUR RAS Your mind is a powerfulthing. It’s constantly processing ideas, sights, sounds, etc. and filtering the vast majority of them out so you don’t get overwhelmed and go crazy. But when you open yourself to a new goal, your mind can do you a big favor. It starts bringing that goalto your attention when you encounter it in the world. As soon as you decide you want a grey Lexus as your next car, you begin seeing grey Lexus after grey Lexus on the road. They were always there, but not until you activated your Reticular Activating System did you start noticing them. When you see someone creating the result you desire, tell yourself that’s where you’ll soon be. Use it to reinforce your goals and inspire you to keep doing the work to achieve them.
  6. 6. STEP #6: SURROUN D YOURSELF WITH LIKE- MINDED PEOPLE When you’ve set a big goal, the last thing you need in your life is an energy-sucking vampire to nay- say your excitement. So don’t give them the chance… Avoid them! Instead, surround yourself with people who are headed in the same direction as you. Seek out goal setters and goal achievers to spend your time with. Leave the negativity behind.
  7. 7. STEP #7: STAY IN MASSIVE ACTION Remember: Setting the goal is the easiest part of this whole process. The real, most important secret to achieving a goal is to stay in action until you achieve it. If you’re not willing to do the work, it’s not even really a goal, it’s just a wish. Set the goal, put these steps in place and then create the accountability necessary to keep yourself in massive action until you achieve the goal.
