How to Plot Your Path to Success?

It does not matter if your goal is for your business or personal life the path to success is the same.

It all starts with getting clear about your goal or what you want to accomplish and having a vision.

We are taught to have SMART goals
–> Specific
–> Measurable
–> Achievable
–> Relevant
–> Time based

This great, but how do you stick to working towards your goal? Having a vision of how your life will be once you have achieved your goal in all the glorious detail will keep you on track. The vision will help you keep going when the going gets tough.

Imagine you want to transform your garden, but you only have a limited amount of time daily to devote to this endeavour. What will you do? Start and give up, never start or start and keep on going?

Let me tell you a story. This is the story of my backyard garden transformation.

When I moved into my current home my backyard looked like this. It was a steep hill that was difficult to mow.

After working one hour every day during spring, summer & fall, weather permitting for over 5 years, the hill now looks like this.

So, no matter what you want to accomplish, by sticking to it on a regular basis eventually you will be successful.

You will have become an expert in your chosen field or have accomplished what you thought was impossible to achieve.

That means, no matter what, every day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year you work on your goal. Find the tools that help you learn faster.

Doing a little every day is a lot more important than doing a lot some day or even just on one day. I have watched neighbours work in their garden on their vacations. On the first day, they work the whole day in the garden. The next day they wake up and can’t move and don’t work that day in the garden. The following day they have lost the momentum and then the vacation is over and they have lost interest and that’s it for working in the garden for the year.

Doing a little bit every day has a huge impact. If running water can create the Grand Canyon, how much can you achieve by working daily on your skills and knowledge?

 

 

Do you need help creating a vision to achieve your goals?

Let’s get started today. I would love to work with you.
