BUSINESS CONFIDENCE : Reaching Your Goals!
As an entrepreneur, have you ever stopped and thought about what it truly takes to accomplish your goals in the new year? From our experience, it takes a certain kind of person to be a successful entrepreneur. This person is not just a people leader, but a leader of self, filled with tenacity. They are consistent innovators who are always envisioning new ways to reach their goals. Getting those ideas out of their minds, onto paper and into motion takes a great deal of self-assuredness. Here’s a few tips on how to ensure that your goals are more than just a conversation in your head for the new year.
Talk To Your Goals - One of the most powerful actions a developing leader can do is speak to their purpose. Those ideas that have been rattling around your brain will begin to take on the first signs of life as you stand in the mirror and affirm that you are capable of accomplishing your goals. Be your own motivational speaker. Hear the power of your own voice declaring that you will accomplish your vision for the new year.
Train For Your Goals - Take time during every week to engage in ongoing learning that is specific to your goals. Choose information outlets that will guide you toward the appropriate strategies necessary to reach your aims. Maybe you can’t get out of the office but reading a 5 or 10 minute article by an industry mogul may be enlightening. Registering for a 30-minute to one-hour webinar may be economic as well as insightful. Keep engaging in learning that informs your goals.
Time Your Goals - Write down the vision you have for the New Year, and include benchmarks, and action items with deadlines for accomplishing those goals. At the top of each week review those goals and note whether or not you have moved towards your desired outcome. Reward yourself for strides that have been made and reset feasible timeframes for accomplishing those which have yet to be met.
Reaching your goals requires a purposeful growth journey. Using these tips will help you embrace that journey full of continued success and tons of satisfaction!
