Setting goals is one of the most important things you can do to guarantee your personal, professional and financial success. Goals are like a road map to your target destination. Each goal accomplished is another mile behind you on the way to where you want to be.
Most of us set goals in one form or another. But most of the time we don't ask for enough. We say, 'I want to have a great job. I want my marriage to be successful. I want to have a million dollars.' These are goals for people who dip their toe into what they really want, but they're afraid to go for it.
It's time to stop tiptoeing around the pool and jump into the deep end, head first. It's time to think big, want more and achieve it all!
One of my favorite life-changing assignments to have people do is to write down 101 goals for themselves. This helps to create a solid list of what they want to do and to have in their lifetime. Then, after that initial list has been written, I ask them to create 10 outrageous goals by plussing, or adding to, their initial goals. These are things so extraordinary that 10 goals are all they need.
Why should people have 10 crazy goals? In order to come up with 10 outrageous goals you must thinking outrageously. You must expand your mind and your realm of what's possible.
The bigger you think, the bigger your world becomes. You begin to think outside of yourself. The more you think outside of yourself, the more you begin to think and do for others. The more you do for others, the more rewards and benefits come back to you. It's a cycle that works for the betterment of both you and the world.
