Lately I’ve been consulting with clients that have some really great goals. Now whether they are realistic or not is actually irrelevant.
I do however sometimes question there course of action to reach that particular goal. The question is, do there actions match up with that goal they are reaching for?
Definition of Insanity- To do the same things over and over again and expect different results
Whatever your goal, Find someone ultra successful and take them to lunch. Get them to tell you everything they’ve done in order to achieve that particular goal. How bad do you actually want what they have? Are you really ready to do what it takes? Sacrifice what they have? Ready to get outside your comfort zone? If so, APPLY EVERYTHING THIS PERSON HAS DONE TO ACHIEVE WHAT THEY HAVE ACHIEVED.
Lets make it easy. Look at your goal and answer one question very honestly. Are your actions matching that goal? If not, either the goal must change to meet the action or the action must change to meet the goal. That simple folks! This goes for anything you want to reach in life.
I don’t know about you but I like to walk in the footsteps of people that have been successful in what ever I’d like to achieve. In other words If I want a successful business why would I get advice from someone from an owner that just put up an Out of Business sign in his window? If its me, I’m out meeting wealthy business men picking there brains over lunch and reading books by Donald Trump.
I think you know where I’m going with this.
You don’t have to re-invent the wheel. Follow in the same footsteps as others that have figured it all out. Stop trying to reach goals doing things how you “think” it should be done and instead start doing things how it’s been “proven” to be done.
My main point is that if you want success, hang around successful people, think like successful people and DO what successful people do.
You know I love ya right?
