How to Have an Extraordinary Life

Do you feel that something is just missing from your life? Are you looking to achieve something really exciting, spectacular- extraordinary? Maybe it's being in a job you really love, enjoying a balanced life where you have time for work and play, being in loving relationship or simply just living the best live ever.

You visualize your Goal and start to work on it. However in a few weeks you've lost interest, your energy and desire is just not there anymore and you've fallen off track. You get frustrated, disappointed, and throw in the towel. Wonder why? Want to start back on the success track?

Then you are ready to read on!

You set off on your path to reaching your goal and suddenly your realize-wow this is going to take lots of time, hard work and I'm really not sure how to get there. You realize you don't have a plan, actions or timetable for reaching your goal. You become frustrated a bit stuck and you stop. Well you are right back where you started. So let's pick up those pieces and get going again. This time on the fast track with goals that will bring out the gold in you and your life!

Step 1- Examine your Goal. Go back and evaluate your Goal. Your goal should make sense for YOU. It should be motivating and measurable, achievable, rewarding and time based.

Step 2- Be committed. In order to achieve any goal you must be committed to taking consistent actions to reach your goal. Bottom line, you REALLY have to want it! Is the desire deep down in your heart and soul? Are you ready and willing to do what it takes?

Every goal you desire to achieve can be broken down into Six simple steps. It's a proven formula for success that works over and over and over. But remember- Goals are tools for digging for the gold in you. The success is in the journey. The goals are merely tools you use to get there.

If you are not succeeding in reaching your goal, try this strategy I use with my clients. It works all the time!

1) Clearly Define Your Goal- Decide exactly what you want. Write it down on paper. Be clear, concise and as detail as possible. Give it a measure, date to complete and end result so you will know when you achieve the goal. Go for the Gold!

2) Define the benefits to YOU- List WHY you want it (the bigger the reason the more internal motivation you are giving yourself - write them on paper) I suggest you come up with at least 10.

3) Develop a plan to get there- Define the actions you will need to take to achieve it (on paper) rank them and list them in order of importance

4) Develop a plan by schedule the actions (in your calendar)

5) Do It! (Follow through and carry out your plan)

6) Find images or photos that represent your goal as already being accomplished. Put them in places you'll see often (bathroom mirror, briefcase, in your car, on your screen saver, on the refrigerator)

Getting Started:

Define 3 goals you would like to work on in the next 90 days. Write them out in one simple sentence with a measure, and end result such as:

On August 1, 2008 I have an extra R5000 in the bank

On August 1, 2008, I am stepping on my scale weighing 30 lbs less.

On August 1, 2008 I am 50% debt free.

On August 1, 2008, I am fitting into my size 8 skinny jeans.

If you are struggling with a goal, or have gotten off track, begin fresh by using this strategy OR drop me a note and we can set up a free goal setting session. If you follow these steps you will be on your way to creating an extraordinary life!

People with goals have vision, act with purpose and achieve success.
