will provide you with the clarity, focus, and direction you need for creating success in all areas of your life!
- IDENTIFY YOUR VALUES
Always begin by identifying your values! Values are “what’s important” to us – in essence, they are the unconscious “bottom lines” that drive our behavior on a subconscious level.
We often get into trouble because we are only vaguely aware of these subconscious bottom lines and they are often contradicted by our conscious behavior.
When we clearly identify these bottom lines we bring them to a conscious level of awareness, which in turn gives us the ability to align our actions and intentions with what’s really important to us.
When our values are clear, our decisions are easy and our direction is focused!
- CLARIFY YOUR GOALS
When it comes to achieving your goals, failure most often happens when you have not clearly defined what it is you truly want. Identify what you want in each area of your life.
If you can’t clearly articulate what you want your relationships and finances to look like, the path to getting there will be extremely hard to see!
Be as specific as possible. For example, if you want to lose weight, how much do you want to lose and by when? If you want a better job, define “better” – what does it look like? And make sure the goals are your own, not those of your mother or spouse!
- IDENTIFY & DISMANTLE YOUR STOPPERS
What’s keeping you “stuck”? Procrastination? Fear? A lack of time or money? Brainstorm as many reasons as you can for not achieving your dreams.
Once you’ve identified your specific stoppers, the key is to dismantle them and accept responsibility for moving past them. There are many wonderful examples of people overcoming incredible odds to create the life they want to live – and you can too! There are many excellent
available to help you with the process.
- TAKE ACTION
Finally, take action today! Without taking action you will not achieve your goals. Take action every day, no matter how small the steps may seem! Remember, success is never an accident – take full responsibility for your future today by actively engaging in steps to success!
