Turn Your Dreams Into Reality By Turning Your Dreams Into Goals…
Turn your Dreams in to Goals and specific outcomes you want.
Clarity of VISION, VALUES, PURPOSE and ROLES leads to clarity of Goals…
Goals are future outcomes stated today!
The more clear and exact we can describe our dreams and turn them into clear goals with Target Dates the easier it will be to keep focused on them and how you will achieve their attainment. Your target dates are specific milestones in reaching and achieving your most powerful, inspiring and vivid goals. This happens smoothly when your goals are in direct alignment with what you value most. Your power to meet those goals will come from that alignment consistently and long after your will power fades.
Dreams and Deadlines… Dreams and Deadlines…
Remember Napolean Hill – the most famous Expert On Success said “A dream is a goal with a deadline.” Goals can be an absolute “Will-Be” with a real “By When”, when you are personally 100% committed to making them become real.
What Is The Difference Between A Dream And A Goal
My own little quote guideline a kind of mash-up of content, beliefs and inspirational quotes is:
A dream by itself is just a dream – it can also be an inspiring vision. A dream with a deadline is a goal that demands a plan and inspires action.
There is literally nothing more critical to our productivity over the long haul than setting specific date-defined goals, and then holding yourself accountable for each one of them.
Our dreams come from our imagination yet our goals are a promise we make to ourselves. When we know this we begin to set our goals with great care because we are then promising ourselves to get exactly what we expect out of our lives.
Our Goal Setting Connection To Our Performance…
Setting specific, understandable and tangible goals (THE SMARTEST GOALS) is one of the single most critical and important things we must do. And smart goal-setting is an activity we do once in awhile, each year, each quarter, each month – but an activity we must do each and every day if we desire to be alive each day and want to live a purpose filled life with passion.
- What are my specific goals for today…
- What are my goals for my business today to move my company in the direction today…
- What are my goals today in my relationships with my spouse and family…
- What are my goals for tomorrow…
Once we truly have our life moving in the right direction to our goals we need to focus on those goals that will encourage you to be alive and live your purpose filled life with passion… 24 hours a day… 365 days a year.
This is not a mater of philosophy. It is a performance issue and it a matter of you living your life fully every day… Coming Alive
Key Components of Setting Goals and Outcomes
- Make everyone of your dreams real by creating targets which are meaningful and tangible.
- Identify at least one specifically defined goal for every role in your life.
- Make certain your goals are high or big enough to ignite your passion and inspire consistent full-out action.
- Write each of your goals in language that is Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic and Time Dated.
Create The SMARTEST Goals You Can
We are starting with the base and familiar and well-known SMART Goals – yet here is my post on Building The S-M-A-R-T-E-S-T Goals
While it sounds simple and easy in concept, setting SMART Goals seems to be a major problem for most people. Fewer than 1 in 5 people state they build goals for what they want.
Without this skill and the discipline to continue setting goals each day, people end up going through life wishing, hoping and waiting for their dreams to come to fruition. They never realize it is up to THEM to make it happen.
