Put it this way, if there was a movie made of your life, would you be playing a leading role or a supporting part? By this I mean are you making the decisions that determine the overall direction of your life, or it is some other party like a spouse or boss? Don’t get me wrong, this is not a recommendation to act like a dictator. I simply mean that if you do not have clearly defined goals and plans to achieve them, then you are working to help someone else achieve theirs.
Believe it or not, it is not that hard to do. You can start small and work up. What do you want to achieve tomorrow, next week, next month and next year. Then describe in vivid detail what your long term goal looks like once it has been obtained. Have your big goal firmly in mind even while working on your short term goals.
If your goal is to be in fitness cover model shape then missing your workouts and eating double cheese burgers may not be in your best interest. If you are in sales and your goal is to qualify for the company trip then you must make the calls. As well if you want to get out of debt then you must be keenly aware of how much money you have coming in and how much you have going out and to where. Then sit down and see if there are opportunities where you can increase your income, and cut expenses if possible. If you would like help developing a plan to help you eliminate your debt as quickly as possible, please feel free to contact my office. I look forward to hearing from you.
