When All Else Fails, Focus on The Goals

“Goal Realization= Desire + Belief + Acceptance.”

Today I was mildly depressed.  Mainly because I’m not where I want to be, but also because I’m not going to be where I want to be anytime soon.

Then I went for a run and a Starbucks trip with a friend.  I realized one, I’m not far from having my immediate needs met (aka money); two, I realized I’m on the path to achieving my big goals as long as I focus and keep moving.

So you know what?  I just need to focus and affirm my goals.  Desire, belief and acceptance can be achieved by these things.  The results, both immediate and long term, WILL follow.

Breaking Down Your Goals

Now that you have your year and month goals, break them down even further into weekly and daily to-dos.

Sometimes thinking of big goals stops me in my tracks. Not in the energy sense– if the goal matches who you are and what you love, thinking about it will bring a lot of excitement and spark.  It’s immobilizing in the sense that you don’t know where to begin and what to do now.

My example: I want to make $4,000 a month.  This sounds amazingly great and I love this goal.  But in the here and now, how would I get there?  Break it down! What avenues can get me the money?  What skills do I need to learn now/activities do I need to do now to achieve this amount each month?

Today, my breakdown’s allowed me to move closer to my goal: 15 cold calls, Craigslist ads, Constant Contact send outs and a couple emails.

How can you breakdown your goals today?
