Goal oriented entrepreneurs achieve the maximum results from their efforts in business due to the fact they work towards clear and measureable targets.
You are the architect of your own business. You have to accept responsibility for your long-term success. Working towards clearly defined goals is essential.
Your primary responsibility to yourself is to design your future the way you want it to be. Clarity is vital. The very act of becoming clear about what you want and what you have to do to get it dramatically increases the probability that you will realize your goals exactly as you imagined and in the timescale you set.
The starting point of business success is to think like a winner. Successful people think about what they want and how to get it most of the time. Unsuccessful people, on the other hand, tend to think and talk about what they don’t want most of the time. In fact the big difference between the successful and unsuccessful is their level of belief and optimism. The more optimistic and positive you are, the more creative you will be coming up with great ideas and recognizing new possibilities to help you move even faster toward your goals, the goals you think about most of the time.
One of the key attributes that I believe that enables me to achieve much of what I do, is my future orientation. I love thinking ahead into the future me, seeing where I am going considering all the possibilities awaiting me in the months and years ahead.
I am very clear about what I want my life to look like five years from now. I know exactly what I want and what I am working toward. Not only do I know where I am going but also why I want to go there. So not only am I tremendously goal oriented but also future oriented.
We invest so much time into our businesses yet so few entrepreneurs actually set concrete goals for themselves. They allow themselves to drift through with no definite goals wondering off in all different directions.
I have always been goal-oriented. I have a clearly defined set of daily goals, weekly goals, monthly goals, yearly goals, and lifetime goals.
I keep my business partner on his toes, by not just setting my goals, but by putting myself on the line, and him of course, by stating them loud and clear in public
I believe totally that to be successful you have to have clear, focused goals. As entrepreneurs it is so important that we keep a laser-focus on our goals. After all we make a conscious decision to commit the time and resources needed to run our business, it makes sense that we know the outcome we wish to achieve, and how we’re going to do it.
Success does not ‘just happen’. First, it is imagined, and then it is created. It takes time. It requires skill, determination, persistence and faith. But you must know what you’re working towards.
I think about my goals and how I can achieve them most of the time. What I don’t do is waste time thinking of any problems that I face in my day to day activities, with these I just think of the solutions, with my mind set on nothing will stop me reaching my goals.
I frequently check over things to make sure I am striving for the right target. I ask myself regularly, “What am I trying to do?” Exactly what is it that I want to achieve as the result of my efforts? I then ask myself “How am I trying to do it, and is this the right way?” Are my current methods working? Is there be a better way to achieve my goal?
The key to goal setting is for you to think on paper. When you write things down, you crystallize them right before your eyes.
So get writing and set your goals.
