Here we are yet again… Standing at the edge of another year gone by, and the beginning of a new one.
If you’re on my list and reading this, you have a desire to build a profitable business, or you have a desire to learn how to make money online.
Neither of which are tasks for the mindless minions of the world whose daily goals consist of working as little as possible, and watching television.
If you’re here, it’s because you consciously want to change your life for the better, and you’re willing to put in the work to make it happen.
This is no small task.
And for that reason, they will not come easily. There is a reason why they call it the 1%.
I’ll tell you…
If you’re like most people, you’re going to sit down this week and write out your goals for the coming year.
In fact it’s mandatory.
But if that’s all you do, you’ve already failed.
Setting a goal is akin to choosing a destination on a map. You have to know where you want to go, or you’ll end up going nowhere.
So why do so many people miss their goals? Why is this process typically a reminder of all the things you failed to accomplish last year?
"A Goal Without A Process Is Simply Next Year’s Source of Disappointment."
Let me give you an example of what I’m talking about…
One of my primary goals in 2015 is to get into the best shape of my life.
Yes, it’s quite possibly the most boring goal on the planet. It’s on everyone’s list.
Some people might write this goal down. Others might go so far as to print it out and hang it on their wall so they can see it every day, as if the reminder is all they’ll need.
Well in my experience, that daily reminder isn’t enough.
You thought about the destination, but you didn’t create a process to ensure you accomplish it.
So once you have your goal, you need to reverse engineer it. What needs to happen in order for you to accomplish it?
For my fitness goal, I need to do two things…
Great. All common sense. Now that I know what I need to do, I need to create a process to ensure they get done.
This is the most important step there is because it’s the process, not the goal, that will bring the result, and yet it’s the one that almost everyone neglects to take.
So in order to eat cleaner, I need to always have healthy food ready to eat in my home. Why? Because I know that if I don't have my meals planned out and healthy food in the house, Don will say, "Want a pizza?" and I'll say 'YES!"
As for exercise, I’ve done the same thing. Left to my own devices, I’ll go to the gym when it’s convenient.
For the past four months, I've purchased my Pilates workouts in advance. If I don't show up, there's a hefty $25 fine each time. That motivates me and helps me stay true to my weekly exercise.
So that's the process I've set up. Now there is a mechanism in place that forces my responsibility and compliance when it comes to this goal.
With these systems in place to support my goal of getting in the best shape of my life in 2015, I’ve increased the likely-hood of accomplishing it to 90%+.
For years I knew that I wasn't living up to my full potential.
I knew that I could be a successful entrepreneur, but something just wasn't right.
I wrote my goals down every year, but I had neglected to set up a PROCESS for getting my goals.
I worked every day, but the process was faulty.
It wasn't until Don and I studied and were mentored by a successful entrepreneur that we put the processes in place that worked specifically for us in our business.
Then, we codified it.
And now you can take advantage of our experience and run alongside of us in 2015.
We've put together an intensive boot camp that will:
Now it's time to learn from those who are ready and willing to teach, and who have already been where you are now in order to nail the strategy part.
So at this point, it's really all about finding the right teachers, and fortunately, we have taken care of all that for you.
So as you sit down over the next week to make your goals for 2015, put just as much time and thought into creating the processes that will help you accomplish them.
Doing so will ensure that the next 12 months, are the most productive and transformational of your life.
