Plotting out your goals in this manner will make you aware of the skills, financial aid and time you will need along the way. Develop short and mid_term goals to help you build those skills. You will begin to make decisions based on whether or not those choices will be beneficial to your long_term goals. If you just drift along in the sea of choices, allowing the tide of every day life to chart your course, it would only be by co_incidence that you will reach your destination or even recognize it when you arrive. As you achieve each step, however small towards your goal, your confidence will grow and solidify.
Attainable _ Let\'s face it. Not everyone is physically gifted like Michael Jordan. For me the goal of breaking Mike\'s points per game record is simply unattainable. In that same breath I will say that you can do almost anything you put your mind to. SMART goal setting dictates that you must only set daily goals that are under your control. Using our example above it would not be good to set a goal that said, \"I will get 2 business leads every day no matter what.\" This is setting yourself up for failure. It was a huge mistake I made when just starting out in MLM. I set that very goal and then beat myself up when I didn\'t reach it every single day. A better goal would state \"I am prospecting at least 5 people every day to get 30 leads each month.\" That means I am marketing to at least 5 people every day on average. The one thing everyone has control of is their work habit. We can\'t dictate the results, but we can do the work and let the law of averages take over. That\'s SMART goal setting.
