How To Achieve Goal....

"Set Your GOAL High And Don't Stop Till You Get There"

·          Visualize yourself achieving the goal.
Napoleon Hill, in his landmark book, Think And Grow Rich had it right. "The starting point of all achievement is desire. Keep this constantly in mind. Weak desires bring weak results, just as a small amount of fire makes a small amount of heat." So, your first step in goal setting and achieving your dreams is that you've got to really, really want to achieve the goal.
·              Start working toward your goals today. 
Ask yourself, "What can I do today to get one step ahead, however small, closer to achieving my goals?" Write it down and start now. Taking the first step is arguably the most important step. You'll establish some much-needed momentum. This will make quitting both personally disappointing and strategically harder. In the words of Eleanor Roosevelt, "Do one thing every day that scares you."
·        Commit to achieving the goal by writing down the goal.
 Lee Iacocca said, "The discipline of writing something down is the first step toward making it happen." I agree completely. Write down the plan, the action steps and the critical path. Somehow, writing down the goal, the plan and a timeline sets events in motion that may not have happened otherwise.
In my own life, it is as if I am making a deeper commitment to goal accomplishment. I can’t fool myself later. The written objective really was the goal.
·        Make sure your goal is time-bound.                                                                                 In other words, set yourself a deadline for meeting the goal. If you set yourself a deadline, your urgency increases monumentally. Without a deadline, you're just kind of along for the ride, paddling downstream, maddeningly unaware of where the finish line is.
·        Review your overall progress regularly.
 Make sure you are making progress. If you are not making progress, hire a coach, tap into the support of loved ones, analyze why the goal is not being met. Don’t allow the goal to just fade away. Figure out what you need to do to accomplish it. Check the prior five steps starting with an assessment of how deeply you actually want to achieve the goal.
