It's Goal Setting Time Again
by John Colanzi.
Wow, another year has flown by.
My grandmother used to say, "When you get older, time will begin to fly by."
Man, was she right. I'm still getting used putting 2003 on my checks and we're already in December with 2004 coming at break neck speed.
Well, it's time to start working on writing out our resolutions for 2004.
If you're like me, losing weight is a given. That's been on my list for as long as I can remember.
The difference is this time around there's a greater sense of urgency and my desire is white hot. It's not wishful thinking this time out of the box.
Desire is the first step in accomplishing any goal.
If you don't have that burning desire, your goal is nothing more than wishful thinking.
First set back and your goal bites the dust.
How do you work up that burning desire to stick to your goal?
Hey, you're a marketer. How do you write a killer sales letter?
You pile on the benefits. You create a picture in the reader's mind of how they'll benefit from your productor sale.
Well this time, the prospect is you. You're selling yourself on the benefits of sticking to your goal.
You have to do more than write your goal down, you have to experience it with all your senses.
That's where many of us fail.
We write out our goal and think we're done.
If you want to set goals that you'll stick to, you have to use all your senses.
If your goal is to make more money in 2004, you have to create a movie in your mind.
See yourself performing the service and the money flowing in.
Add emotions to your goal. As you visualize the money flowing in how will you feel?
Visualize how you'll spend the money.
Will you buy a new house? Picture yourself living in your new house.
Do you want a new car? See yourself driving it.
By emotionalizing your goal and experiencing the end result, you'll build that burning desire that will guarantee your success.
If you have problems with visualizing your goals, create a treasure map.
Take a picture of the house you want to live in.
Take a picture of the car you want to drive.
Do whatever it takes to build up that white hot desire that nothing can stand in the way of.
Make 2004 your best year ever.
