Specific _ Your goal must be specific. You must have a crystal clear picture of what you expect to achieve. The mind thinks in pictures or images. Therefore, you must have a clear image of what it is that you desire. For example, you have the goal of becoming rich and retiring early from the job that you hate. Good luck with that. You will never get that because it\'s way to vague. Your goal may start out that way _ as a dream or an idea. In order to actually get there you must crystallize it into a specific vision that you can see clearly in your mind. This vague goal could be specified like this.....I am devoting at least 10 hrs every week to building a network marketing business with company XYZ to earn at least บꯠ per month in residual income. This will allow me to retire by Dec. 31st 2012.
Attainable _ Set a practical goal that can be reachable. As mentioned before, you will need to be practical about it. Never set a goal that is impossible to achieve nor a goal that you can achieve easily. Set a challenging goal so that you have to make the extra effort to reach it. Realistic _ Always measure your strengths and weaknesses before setting the goal.. Be realistic when you are setting the goals. Do those activities that utilize your strength and delegate those that are your weaknesses.
