Empowered Thoughts From Our Recent Forum... by Floyd Wickman
Wow. What an exciting group we had recently at our Winter Forum in Michigan. Every single time - I'm overwhelmed and thrilled by the passion our group has not only for this business - but for each other, their customers, their colleagues and their futures. It's empowering and I am honored every time to be part of it.
One of the things we talked about at this Forum was hitting your goals for the year. (And talk about some inspiring goals to go around!) I wanted to share with you four quick components for you to be certain of as you are kicking off your journey for this year as well.
1. Create a LASER FOCUS on your goal. To do that - first it has to be YOUR goal. Something that will motivate YOU. Excite YOU. Move YOU to take the action every day to get where you want to go. Too often we have our 'goals' handed to us by a boss, a friend, a family member -- even an 'expectation' from others. That's not going to do the trick. Make it something YOU can get fired up about and then create a laser beam focus on it.
2. Create a FOOL-PROOF plan to achieve your goal. "Ah, but Floyyyyyddd...Planning is a lot of WORK." I know. But a well crafted plan complete with systems in place, daily activities and actionable items coupled with your laser focus is the 'work' that will get you where you want to go this year. Luck won't do it. Wishing won't make it so. Make the plan - the follow it DAILY.
3. Have an UNSHAKABLE BELIEF that you can achieve your goal. Our minds truly can be our greatest asset or biggest anchor. Give yourself the best gift (and the best shot at success) you can have by fueling your mind and your spirit with the unshakable belief and unwavering conviction that you WILL achieve your goal. (Your mind will immediately go to work to help you do just that!
4. Have a SUPPORT TEAM in place to help you achieve your goal. That whole 'no man is an island thing'? TRUE. Listen you can't be all things to all people effectively all the time. No one can. The smartest, most successful people I know capitalize on their strengths, delegate the work they can and stay focused on the goal-achieving activities. You need to do the same to make this year your very best. The great thing is - we're right here to help be part of that support for you!
Don't leave this year's goals to chance friends. Put these four elements in place in YOUR business and life starting today and you'll be amazed at what you can accomplish. To everyone who shared their stories, successes, strategies and more with us at the Forum - thank you! You mean the world to us! See you in July!
