Wow! It’s the top of the fourth quarter of 2017! We have 87 days left in 2017. How are you coming along with finishing your goals? If you’re moving right along, great! Stay focused. Keep moving forward.
If you’re stuck and not quite sure of the right next move, here are 3 tips that can help you resume moving in the right direction to achieving your 2017 goals.
1) Go back and review your top goals to revive your passion and commitment. Why did you choose your goals in the first place? What was the payoff or outcome you imagined? Who will benefit once you finish your goal?
If you don’t already have this, get a picture of your finished goal. For example, if you’re writing a book, take a picture of your book cover or of a book similar to the one you’re writing.
Make copies of your picture and post it everywhere: on your bathroom mirror, the refrigerator, car dashboard, bedroom ceiling (LOL), in your iPhone/Android mobile phone and anywhere else you can think of. Look at this picture every day along with your written goals to help you stay focused on achieving them.
2) Next, use your sanctified imagination and daily visualize yourself having achieved your goal. How does it feel? What are your family and friends saying? Are they saying things like “congratulations” and giving you hugs or a pat on the back?
Now that you’ve accomplished your goal, do you have the extra money to keep building your business and to take that family vacation you’ve been dreaming of?
It feels good to have finished your goal … right? Whenever you get stuck, revisit the future in your imagination and see yourself having already finished what you’re diligently working towards completing. Visualization will keep you moving in the right direction.
3) Next, choose the one right action step to do today and by end of week to regain your momentum. Success is attained by taking daily strategic steps towards your goal. Before you know it, you will have a new momentum to FINISH 2017 STRONG!
This next step is optional. I call it “Accountability”.
