Listen to the voice, pay attention to the words on the screen as they reach all the way down into your subconscious to reprogram your thinking.
Stop, take a breath, and just THINK.
So many people have big hopes…
So many people have big dreams…
So many people have big aspirations…
So many people have virtually no hope making their DREAMS real until they learn how to systematically, continuously, and religiously turn them in ACHIEVABLE GOALS.
The GREAT news is that this is actually quite simple to do.
With the RIGHT help.
Think about the goals you had 5-10-15-20 years ago.
What was your MONEY goal then… what is it now?
What was your CAREER goal then… what is it now?
What was your TRAVEL or adventure goal then… what is it now?
What was your LIFESTYLE goal then… what is it now?
If you are like most people, you have not achieved these goals, you have learned to settle for what life has handed out to you.
Regardless if your goals are world-changing, or just changes that would make a big difference to your friends, family, and community there is no reason to SETTLE for LESS when the goal is MORE of what matters to you.
The key is found in this simple formula…
Desirability is simple, just subtract the COSTS from the BENEFITS and the rest is what’s in it for you… a wonderful goal with huge desirability!
For example, you want $1 million in liquid cash on your 60th birthday. That is the BENEFIT — financial freedom from want and despair. The COST is more productive hours earning money, fewer Starbucks, fewer trips to Europe, and a smaller financial footprint (rent, insurance, mortgage, boat payments, etc.)
Given the COSTS and the BENEFITS, exactly how DESIRABLE is your number 1 goal on a scale of 1 to 10?
Believability is even easier to understand: Believability = POWER minus EFFORT.
If you have massive earning power, $ 1 million at 60 is a slam dunk. If you are working 9 to 5 for $60 grand a year, you will have to expend a great deal more EFFORT to hit this goal.
So, today, how BELIEVABLE is your goal such as financial independence… scale of 1 to 10?
When there is a direct correlation/relationship ( 1:1 ) between your desires and your beliefs you have an Achievable Goal.
Where Desire is high (10) but little Belief (3) you must put forth the EFFORT to raise your power, which immediately increases your BELIEF in what’s possible.
