“It’s in your moments of decision that your destiny is shaped.” — Tony Robbins
Do you want to crush your goals?
I’ve used this approach to 15x my net worth.
I quit my great corporate job to travel the world four times a year, spend a lot of time with my daughter, and cover my living expenses with passive income.
It’s absolutely possible.
You can do it, too!
Across the street right now, they’re jackhammering a bunch of concrete.
That’s the sound of you and me crushing our goals!
We’re gonna go over the secrets to success in three easy steps.
1. It Starts with Values Not Goals
Success starts with values and not with goals.
If you make a bunch of goals that are not aligned with your values, they won’t have any power.
You need to figure out what makes you angry.
What are you passionate about?
What differences do you want to see in the world?
If you don’t take the time to figure out what’s really important, you can make and achieve goals that don’t mean anything to you.
I go to goals events.
I typically go to one goals event per year.
I also try to get away to the mountains for a couple days and reflect.
During my time there, I form goals while also reflecting and reading those goals every single day.
This mindset can work in any area of life.
I lost 30 pounds and kept it off.
I was able to quit my job and 15x my net worth.
I was able to change relationships and travel.
You can create change in your life.
Creating a mission statement can help with this.
When you create a good mission statement, you can create annual goals.
If you read those goals every day, they will allow you to decide where you want to go.
2. Focus on Your Goals Every Day
I’ve got a sheet with goals, values, and intentions.
In my mission statement, my faith also plays a part.
The statement says:
“I, first and foremost, by my relationship with Jesus, make it my highest priority to know I’m better and walk with him.
I’m committed to being loving towards friends and family and show respect for all human lives.
I’m committed to being a lifelong learner, finding personal growth, as well as fitness and healthy living.
I am committed to being a good steward to all I’ve been given.
I am committed to persevering and working hard, especially in challenging times.
I consistently choose to show up in an authentic way with my communication and creative expression.”
Believe it or not, I wrote most of that from memory!
I did check a few times, but I know it nearly by heart because I read it every single morning.
Your mission statement won’t look exactly like mine.
You’ll find one that fits you.
After I wrote my mission statement, I created goals.
I have goals in different areas of life.
One of them is dated 12/31/22, which is the end of this year.
I want to finish 3rd in a Spartan race for my age group and qualify for Spartan Elite.
My highest score is currently 10th.
Yours could be a similar goal or something completely different!
Keep your goals in front of you and focus on your goals every day.
If you focus on it, you can do it.
If you don’t focus, you’re not gonna do it.
In Think and Grow Rich, Napoleon Hill said: “Whatever your mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve.”
If you can keep your goals in front of you, you can achieve them.
I have a monetary goal, some travel goals.
I talk about walking with Jesus.
I even got a bit artsy!
In my bathroom, I put up a collage.
I put some pictures of my face superimposed on Spartan race champions.
I also have photos of me and my daughter at Legoland.
The pictures remind me of my goals and of what is most important to me.
I read my statement every morning and see the pictures every day.
I know this stuff sounds cheesy but it actually works!
It has worked in every single area of my life.
3. Be Consistent
Figure out what your values are.
Figure out your mission statement.
Why are you here?
What is the reason you were born?
If you start with those questions, you can create goals that will be absolutely transformational.
The universe will get out of the way and take you seriously.
You mean business.
Only 3% of Americans have written goals.
If you write your goals down, you’re ahead of 97% of people.
There’s a difference between a goal and a resolution.
A resolution is saying you’ll go to the gym in January.
By March, the gyms are empty.
A goal is much more long term.
There’s this idea of a SMART goal:
S – Specific
M – Measurable
A – Achievable
R – Realistic
T – Time bound
There’s a built-in plan there.
They say if you don’t have a plan, you’re planning to fail.
Commit to your goals.
