I don’t know what your goals are…but I hope YOU do.
It doesn’t really matter what they are, as their achievement boils down to some pretty basic steps.
This is the part of the article where some gurus will give you a special link to their ‘Super Secret Formula’ for success, with ‘Sweet Baby Ninja’ Access for just $97…but wait there’s more!!
I am IN the personal development industry, and many of those offers drive me nuts.
Did I recently go through an experience that taught me all the basic, necessary steps to achieve a goal?
Was it on a cloud-ringed mountaintop in Tibet with a wise, bearded guru-dude?
It was in the woods at the far end of my Dad’s property in Dunbarton NH (elevation: 825 feet above sea level, no nosebleeds here) while cutting firewood for the upcoming winter.
What was my goal?
A shed full of firewood (about 1.5 cords) for the upcoming winter.
It’s important to quantify our goals as well as knowing what they look like.
Not everyone gets that step right.
Too many people just say “I want my life to be better!”
When asked how (or even why), too many have no idea.
That’s sad, in a way, because knowing what you DO WANT is the first step.
After that, the others line up like this:
2) Find Your Resources: Where will you start, what will you need to achieve?
3) Invest in Tools: What skills or products will you need, who do you need to meet?
4) Plan Your Strategy: What steps do you need to take, in what order?
5) Take Action: This is where those who simply ‘Hope Wish & Dream’ fail!
6) Collect Your Winnings: Gather your successes, appreciate, make room for more.
See? No secret formula, program or expensive weekend event.

Just something that is working for a regular guy like me who learned something valuable and wanted to share it.
If you’ve got something in your life that could use some improvement (goals, money, job, relationship…anything), I sincerely hope this simple message can be helpful in getting you UN-stuck and on the way to something better…whatever that looks like, for you.
