RICK ON LIFE: Creating Positive Change!
WATCH THIS GREAT SHOW BELOW INTRO ARTICLE
With your Host: Rick Amitin
As February dawns I hear a lot of disappointment from people I know. They have already given up on their New Year Resolutions. With almost half of the population setting New Year Resolutions, and the over 90 percent failure rate by the middle of the month, I get their dismay.
I quit the New Year Resolution merry-go-round a few years ago when I learned the value of goals. Resolutions stand as good intentions, but mostly they’re just wishful thinking. Goals are a different animal altogether. Resolutions generally have no plan of action attached to them. Goals are clearly defined, measurable, and have deadlines.
People who take the time to get clear on what they want, write in down, establish small manageable action steps, anticipate obstacles, resistance, and distractions, create a blueprint for achieving all goals, and review the plan regularly have an 80 percent success rate over people who don’t. It might seem overwhelming but consider the outcome if you don’t put in the work.
Forbes reports a study about goals-setting in carried out in the Harvard MBA Program. Graduate students were asked if they have set clear, written goals for their futures, as well as if they have made specific plans to transform their fantasies into realities. (according to Elite Daily)
Only 3 percent of the students had written plans to accomplish them, 13 percent had goals in their minds but hadn’t written them down, and 84 percent of the students had no goals at all. Ten years later. The same class of students were interviewed again and the conclusion of the study is astonishing.
The 13 percent of the class who had goals, but did not write them down, earned twice the amount of the 84 percent who had no goals. The 3 percent who had written goals and a written plan for achieving those goals, earned 10 times as much as the other 97 percent of the class combined.
Our lives are important. Too important to throw them together haphazardly. With a little bit of forethought, planning, and execution I think we give ourselves a much better chance of living the life of our dreams. We all know the insanity of doing the same things the same way and hoping for different results. We have to be the change our dreams require.
Goals have to be clearly defined, with manageable action steps, account for distractions, be attached to long-term outcomes, and reviewed regularly. It helps to visualize the feelings you will have when you accomplish your goals. And don’t forget to write and read some rich and powerful affirmations to keep you going.
You and your dreams are worth the effort!
