Your goal may be holding you back. 🔥👋🏼 There I said it!
It’s not the month end yet but I want to talk about something that I've seen come up so very often and
that is -- your goal may be holding you back.
As well laid as it is, as plugged in as you are; you've got it written everywhere and you've done all the things & may have proclaimed it from the Universe but it's still something that's holding you back.
When we set a goal, especially in network marketing it's always -- to achieve the next rank, ear a particular amount or recruit x number of members to your team. But we have one big goal.
For the purpose of this blog, let's take that you want to achieve a certain rank in your company.
What next? You write it down, mark the date & start working on achieving your goal.
My question to you is - on the first day of the month do you hit your goal? NO!
Do you achieve your goal by the first week? Certainly no!
Fast forward a few weeks, in mid-month have you hit that goal? Still no!
It's the last week of the month have you hit your goal now? The answer is still probably no!
What happens to your subconscious every single day that you don't hit that main goal - whether you acknowledge it or not, whether you realize it or not - every day you don't hit your big goal is dinging your subconscious. It's affecting your confidence & your mojo because every single day in the back of your mind when you don't hit that goal you feel yourself to be a failure.
Back of your head you keep reminding yourself -- i'll be a success when I hit that goal which means until you don't your subconscious takes you to be a failure.
I see it happen so often especially in this industry - you give up! You get comfortable. If you don't hit your goal mid month you feel should I be more rational, should I skip & start again next month?
You start freaking out about failing, re-set a small goal that you know you can hit easily & think of striving for the big goal next month.
You give up on your big goal by 2nd-3rd week or re-adjust it or make it more rational.
Am I right?
Doesn't it happen all the time? It happens to your, to your team & those around you.
It used to happen to me for a long time too until I came across the magic of constructing my goal backwards.
Today, I’m going to share my magic of re-constructing your goal backwards so you too can start crushing them instead of cramping them small.
But before we do that, I want you to do a gut check -- did you re track your goal this month? Did you get uncomfortable because you aren’t anywhere close to achieving your goals for December? Are you thinking of re-adjusting them to make them safer & achievable?
If your answer to the last Q is yes, then I want you to know that there’s still time & you can very well achieve your goal for December 2018. Sit down and do this -- Setting your goals backward.
It's so simple & easy that once you & your team get a hold of it, you'll see people hitting goals, staying consistent, getting the success & believing in themselves.
Take your goal for December & I want you to orchestrate it backwards. I need you to write it down & work backwards. What has to happen for that goal to become successful?
If you want to hit the next rank - what has to happen in order for that to be a success? Do other members in your team need to rank up to for you to hit the next rank? Do you need to have x number of customers? Do you need to have x amount of volume? Do you need certain training or leadership? You've got to work those steps & work on them backwards.
It needs to look like a pyramid with your goal on the top & all the steps leading to that goal to follow.
You can do it like I do by dividing it out into 4. So if I have a certain goal let's say a certain X amount of volume I want to achieve by the end of the month which is very common in network marketing - so I'll take that volume and divide it by 4.
I don't need to look at the end of the month goal or the top of the mountain, I just need to know what is it per week that I need & when I'm being real OCD, I'll even break the weekly goals into daily so I have a pulse check and know where I am. But I'm only working backwards and looking at the goals I have for the week. So for the week, is my goal to reach that top rank? No! For my goal for the first week is to take care of the path or the journey that gets me there that I worked out when I orchestrated it backwards; for the week - what is that volume that I need? For the week - what is the steps I need to take? What does my customers look like? I stay in the moment, in the week.
With week 2 - I see if I checked off all the goals I set in week 1? If no, I need to bring in the extra in week 2 but at the same time I stay in week 2. I'm not looking forward. My goal is still not that rank but the activities that are going to get me there because that makes sense.
This way you are constantly winning, you constantly have a successful mindset. Every time I check off one of the tasks that I needed to do to get me to that rank, I'm a success; I'm winning & achieving my goals.
Don't you think I'm going to stay a little more plugged into my business? Don't you think I'm going to stay a little more excited? Don't you think I might have a little more belief in myself? Don't you think I'm going to show up more constant with my customer follow ups & my team follow ups & the daily activities because I'm winning!!
You know how things are when you are on the roll, you are getting things done & you are winning -- you stay your best self.
So when you are staying in the moment & marking of the things that have to happen before that big goal - you are your best self; you are hitting them, you are slaying your goals & no longer have to re-work your goal because it's possible & because you are a success every.single.day.
I really want to challenge you guys to work on the rest of your December goals backwards & crush your 2019 goals with this approach.
So get your goal for December & then work that waterfall down.
At the top of the page you will write your goal. What is your goal?
Once you've done that divide your goal into actions & mini goals you need to tick so you can start from the bottom & work your way to the top.
Because if your ONLY goal for the month is that one big goal, you are going to be in the failure mindset all month long. Do you think you can really achieve that or any other goal with that mindset?
Break it down, chunk it up, work from the bottom to your way up.
Recap - Divide your goal over 4 weeks; if you want to divide them further into days do it! It's going to make huge difference - it's going to give you grace, it's going to be realistic & also income producing. It's also going to be duplicate-able because your team can see & do the little steps every day or every week instead of wondering how I'm going to climb up the mountain & decide to stay down in the comfort-vile.
Share the training with your team & invite them to watch it so they can learn how to set goals & crush them every month instead feeling like a failure for not achieving what they set out for at the start & then setting small goals because they feel realistic & comfortable.
