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.
Use Leverage _ \"Give me a lever long enough and a fulcrum on which to place it, and I shall move the world.\" _ Archimedes. Leverage is the ability to exert minimal effort for maximal achievement. An example of this is \"OPK\" or in other words, other people\'s knowledge. One of the greatest ways to use leverage is to seek a mentor. By doing this you save yourself time and money by eliminating the trial and error stage and instead begin seeing results. By creating a mastermind group you leverage several other\'s knowledge along with their resources and networks helping you reach even more people that could potentially help you reach your goal.
