Hey folks, how are you? I hope your have a great new year. I have been away for quite a while and many have asked if I’m “still there”. The answer is “YES!” I’m still here with you just that I’ve been extremely busy lately.
That’s what happened after I attended Anthony Robbins’ Wealth Mastery Program. Huge amount of financial knowledge need to be absorbed and have some accountability partner to keep me accountable.
Then, there’re lots of preparations to be made before new year such as finances, emotional, physical, spiritual and health preparation. Most of my time was spent on business preparation or the “business battle plan for 2010″
I called it the planning and strategizing stage where I do research about the new tools and channels needed for my business in 2010 and studying new investment vehicles, allocate my assets … etc.
After the new year (which is now), it’s a launching stage where I put all the plans in action, reviewing the response, measure the numbers, relocate my assets, managing new businesses and solving new problems
That explains why I’ve been quite for quite a while.
Thanks to some of the volunteers who offer their hands to help me out with some of my work and that gives me some time to write this post here. (I’m feeling grateful right now)
Like most of you, I have lots of great new goals to be achieved too. Here’s the thing. Setting a new goal is pretty easy but achieve it is another story.
Just look at the ratio of the number of people who set goals and the number of people who actually achieve their goals. What a sad scene.
I do not mean that setting goals is a bad thing but setting goals alone will do you no good if you do not take massive actions to execute the plan and have the discipline to do it consistently.
To achieve your goal, you need to have a solid discipline. It is not about taking massive action for a day or two but having the discipline to take massive action for a certain period of time (depends on what your goal is) until your goal is achieved.
Let’s say, your goal is to lose 10 pounds in the next 3 months.
Your next step is to come out with a plan for that. Are you going to eat less unhealthy food, eat more fruits and vege? Are you going to exercise more? Or the mixture of both.
Let’s say your plan is to eat healthily and exercise more. Then, ask yourself what are you going to eat and what sort of exercise you want to do. Is it swimming, playing tennis, jogging, cycling? With who are you going to do the exercise with? Friends? Spouse? kids? Make them your accountability partner.
After that, ask yourself, how often are you going to do the exercise and what is the duration per session?
Your plan must be crystal clear. Otherwise, forget about goal setting. It’s just a waste of time.
Done with planning? Next, taking massive action.
or in simple English, JUST DO IT!!
Do not do it for just a day or a week. Do it consistently until your goal is achieved.
Do not expect to have a lose pants after you go cycling for 3 hours in the first day. Your body needs time to response and coordinate itself. You need lots of discipline
Only consistent action can create your desired results for you.
A mentor of mine once said, “Ordinary things consistently done will create extraordinary results.”
The formula for your successful goal setting is
Goals + Massive Action + Discipline = Success
This formula is not only applicable for losing weight but also for any other goals that you set for yourself.
If you are really serious at achieving your goals, willing to take action and have the required discipline, I want you to check this out.
I got it a few years back and it really help me to achieve my goals.
All the best to you in 2010.
