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.
_ Brian Tracy: Self_help author, speaker, and lecturer. Review your Progress. You will need to set times to review your progress in terms of your goals. You need to see if you are still on track and, if not, you need to change the way that you are approaching achieving your goals or you need to review your goals in general. This is the point at which you will see if your goals are truly achievable or not.
