How to achieve any goal

I’m going to presume that you’re a goal setter because achieving goals feels too good to not set them! But if you’re not, don’t worry, I’m going to share how to set and achieve amazing goals!

And it’s all in the giving!

Most people don’t set goals, and those who do, tend to make them too small and too realistic. This leads to setting the wrong goal.

Wait! Can you set a wrong goal?

Well let’s get back to basics on what a good goal is. A good goal is an inspiring way of life that you desire to bring into your reality, which you’ve never experienced before. There is a way of life associated with every goal, which can be viewed as a set of results, i.e., income level, time flexibility, financial freedom, fulfilling career, your own boss, etc.

Your goal is a result, and it is important to note that ALL results happen naturally. This is law. Results are natural consequences produced by certain behaviours. When your goal is achieved, it is as natural as one plus one equalling two.

Most disappointment and failure arise when we expect good results without proper understanding or practice of what’s needed to cause them. For example, you expect to lift 100kg in the gym without putting in the months of work and reps to prepare you for the big lift. Or you expect to be earning six figures someday, but you’re not improving your mindset or skillset.

You wouldn’t expect heat from a fire without first giving it fuel, so why would you expect to achieve anything without putting in the work. Wishing and waiting for it to happen doesn’t work.

According to the law of cause and effect, if your goal is an effect, then it must have a cause. This is Newton’s third law; every action has an equal and opposite reaction. The cause of your goal is in developing the right mindset and skillset to achieve it confidently and naturally.

We could also look at this law as the law of giving and receiving. And this is truly how you can achieve any goal. You, me, and everything else are part of a universal ecosystem, and when you give generously to it, the other party wins, but so do you! We are all just individualised parts of a greater whole.

So the only way to achieve your dream goal, is to GIVE your way to your goal!

For example, you desire to be earning €20,000 per month, but you currently earn €4,000. You desire to five times your income. It mightn’t seem logical, but can you do it?

And the answer is ‘Yes, of course!’

But you might say, “well I’ve never earned that before, so how am I going to do that?”

Jim Rohn says it best, “you get paid for providing value to the marketplace”, and “you can have more than you’ve got, because you can become more than what you are.”

If you’re currently trading your time for money, remember, you don’t get paid for your time, you get paid for the value you can GIVE during that time.

This is a small difference that makes a big difference!

By improving your habits, beliefs, and changing your behaviour, you can provide and give more value to more people. When you grow so will your income. If you become five times more valuable, you can five times your income. But only you can do this for yourself.

How could you become 5X more valuable to the marketplace?

Leaders always get compensated more than employees because they organise the provision of value and service to other people. If you can organise employees to GIVE a good service, then you will be the best compensated and RECEIVE the most.

Personal development is all about increasing the value you can offer other people, including employees and customers.

By making the most of yourself, you will attract the success you desire. If you are interested in finding out more about how personal development can help you become more valuable and in turn can increase your income, then send me a message.

There’s another life waiting for you, but if you wait for it, it will never arrive!

Don’t be a go-getter, be a Go-Giver!

All the best,
