Whilst touching on monetary goals, another participant reminds us that being specific about your goal is important: \"My goal was to be a millionaire by 35... I achieved it the moment I stepped away from the foreign exchange counter at Jakarta airport!\" Following up with our survey participants revealed commonality in the way they went about setting goals and their subsequent actions to achieve their goals. We\'ve already seen how those with the greatest success in terms of personal wealth had SMART goals. This isn\'t to say that success can only be measured by means of personal wealth at all _ the original intention was simply to test the mythical Yale Study results. And, of course, someone could have set themselves a perfectly good SMART goal _ but due to their own environment, had not accumulated as much personal wealth in terms of a standard currency _ indeed, a person could have less in terms of monetary wealth yet be considerably better off in terms of the value they can obtain from less money.
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.
