Include a deadline for achieving your goals. This prevents procrastination. It also separates your goals from your dreams.
Having pictures of the things you will have and do with the money you make helps. Use a scrapbook with color pictures of cars, homes, vacations, etc. you want.
Your goals should be action-oriented. What steps do you need to take to reach your goals? Many investors use strategies such as Wholesaling or Creative Financing in order to bring them closer to reaching their goals, financially speaking.
Break down your goal into manageable steps. With each activity, ask yourself: Does this activity take me closer to my goal?
Keep your goals to yourself. You avoid any negative people around you who might sabotage your efforts. Some people cannot stand to see you succeed. And some spouses hate the idea of making a change, believe it or not.
Motivational tapes and CDs, played in your car on the way to work, can help dramatically. The ones by Nightingale-Conant are especially good.
Be prepared to review and restate your goals, as you reach a certain level, or your situation changes, and you realize that you have not reached high enough.
AS we mentioned before, be prepared to review and restate your goals, as you reach a certain level or your situation changes, and you realize that you have not reached high enough. Sometimes having a trusted advisor or mentor can really keep you focused and on point.
