The prevailing thought is to think about what you want to do. Then, you set goals, write them down, stay focused on them and go forward. You check your list over and over again, come back to it, adjust it, and that is how you achieve your goals. But I believe it is not the way goals should be attained. Some people even do it once a year, when they make a New Year resolution. They set goals, and they do forget it until a year later. These people usually have no power. They take the power of goals too lightly which brings us to some basics. You have to realize you have to practice the fundamentals daily. Think about the great coaches in sports history for example. They often teach the basics to people that are already the best at what they do. These top trainers make them go through the fundamentals over and over again, hundreds of time, day after day until they can do it at a crucial moment.
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.
