Set Goals for Different Areas of your Life. Just as you are not 100% about work or your social life, your goals should not focus only on one area of your life. Set goals for your personal life, ie family, health, spiritual, etc as well business goals as well so that you become a more well_rounded and balanced person. Create a vision board of your goals, using pictures that represent each one. Put your board somewhere where you see it every day. This will be a constant reminder. Believe in Them. If you ever read the \"Secret\" by Rhonda Byrne, you would know that in order for goals to really work, you must believe in them wholeheartedly. It is pointless setting a goal to earn a hundred thousand dollars a month if you do not believe it is possible. Now is the time to review your goals and make sure that they are achievable in your mind.
You may see goals as somewhat limiting or stifling your creativity. You may take the position that if you commit to a goal you must stubbornly pursue it and close the door to other opportunities that may arise. While these are the most common reasons for foot_dragging, when it comes to goal setting, the reasons for not setting goals are almost endless. I even had one lovely lady tell me that she didn\'t set goals because she was afraid that if she wrote them down she would jinx her future success. She thought it would be \"bad juju\"! We can be very creative when it comes to finding excuses for not attending to this vitally important task. When you think about it, with all these reasons to avoid goal setting, why should you even set goals? Small business owners, business book authors and consultants are missing a vitally important piece of information about goals: they have a magnetic quality. That brings me to reason #7. This is the most important, yet seldom recognized, reason small business owners resist setting goals. You don\'t realize the power and full benefits of Magnetic Goals. When you define your own set of Magnetic Goals, use them as a tool, rather than just a \"I have to do because smart folks tell me to\" exercise, you will see for yourself the awesome power of Magnetic Goals to draw success to you.
