'How to Set Goals Like Bill Gates'
By Mike Litman
Hope you're doing AWESOME!
I just got back from a seminar I spoke at in Texas this weekend and I want to share with you a 'theme' I heard from 3 coaching clients I was able to get together with there.
What was so interesting to me is that ALL 3 of them said the EXACT same thing to me.
Let me make this point and then, right after, show you a powerful and SIMPLE success principle.
I was scattered.
I was a procrastinator.
I tried to generate $10,000.00 a month before I ever made $5,000.
I tried to generate $1,000,000 before I ever earned $100,000.00.
I was trying to reach my goals, but never to pay my dues.
I had a ton of ideas, but no results.
I was going backwards faster than the famous track athlete Carl Lewis runs. It wasn't pretty.
But then things started to change.
Just like they have for these 3 coaching clients I met with at the seminar this weekend in Texas.
We've helped these 3 individuals change their lives and income and let me share with you this one point we've held them ACCOUNTABLE on.
This ONE point I used to transform my finances and I STILL use it today.
Here's the 'principle':
***MAKE your GOALS smaller.
Yes, you can have a big vision, but make your goals smaller.
"Can you explain Mike?"
When I was making $5,000 a month, my goal next month was $6,500.
When I was making $12,000, my next month's goal was $14,000.
And on and on.
The seminar I was at had about 500 people. I asked them: 'How many people set big goals and still weren't where they wanted to be?" 95% of the room raised their hands.
These 3 coaching clients I met with at the seminar all have MOMENTUM.
That's what happens when you have PROGRESS and you reach your goals.
Take a deep breath and take ONE step at a time.
Success is counterintuitive.
Sometimes to go faster, you need to go slower.
I bet if you make your goals 50% smaller, you'll have 100% more results.
This is your year. Try this for 60 days and watch what happens.
Here are the results for these 3 coaching clients.
Two have doubled their income.
One's income is up 25%.
All three have seen their confidence and happiness skyrocket.
This is your year to unleash YOUR greatness!
Talk to you soon.
