It’s best not to worry about how you will achieve your goal when you are deciding what you want.
This is because you may experience negative thoughts and this can discourage you from setting a goal.
Once you’ve set your goal, written it down and added your emotions to it, thinking about why you really want it, it’s time to create your plan.
If you’ve set an ambitious goal to make a lot more money, for example, it’s time to think about how you’re going to do it.
You don’t need all the answers now
If you have a challenge such as a goal, it’s easy to become overwhelmed because you don’t know how to achieve it.
The best way to avoid this overwhelm is to break your goal down into smaller parts.
So if your goal is to make $100,000 next year, you need to figure out how to do it.
There are some obvious things you can do, such as getting a second job or swapping your existing job for a better-paying one.
There are many people who make significant money from side jobs by working from home.
All they need is a computer and an internet connection. Examples of this include affiliate marketing (you promote other people’s products and services for a commission), setting up your own online shop, offering coaching services and many more.
So the first part of your plan needs to be based on research. There are so many online resources available to you today.
Take the time to look at the different opportunities that exist to make the extra money you need.
Just use Google or your favourite search engine to find out more.
If you prefer to watch videos, you can go to YouTube and search there.
Make a decision and plan it
Once you’ve gone through the research stage, you can now make a detailed plan about it.
So if you’ve decided to find a better paying job, what skills will you need to find one?
Do you need a website? Do you need to create videos? How will you get visitors who are interested in your offer that can turn into customers?
Create a plan for the day
The best thing to do is to take action to achieve your goal.
This gains momentum every day and you’ll be amazed at the progress you make.
So you want to break down your plan into small actions that you can take each day.
Your plan will never be perfect
Accept that your plan will never be perfect and you will need to review and adjust it regularly.
The same applies to everyone. If you know exactly how to achieve your goal, it’s not hard enough!
