Contrary to the usual advice so many people mindlessly repeat, big goals don’t work.
Why not, you ask?
Because they are too big to show you any rapid progress and results.
Therefore you get discouraged or distracted before you even get close to achieving it.
But if you set small goals, you are much more likely to actually move ahead.
Because then you can get some early successes and keep your motivation level high.
After all, you’ll be fighting a tough mental game against yourself and all those nasty little voices in your head.
Those nasty little voices saying things like:
“I can’t do it”,
“I’m not good enough”,
“This doesn’t work”,
“It’ll never happen”,
“Stick to a ‘safe’ 9-to-5 job”.
Not to mention all the other nasty voices from certain friends and family who flat out tell you they don’t think you’ll succeed and that you simply must be crazy.
That’s why if you don’t get some early wins, then you’ll succumb to all the negativity flying around out there.
You still can (and should) have a BIG goal in mind.
But you then need to break that down into digestible chunks.
Smaller goals to measure your achievement along the way.
Mile markers to chart your progress.
Personally, I call them “stepping stone goals”.
And they are the #1 thing I work with people on during their Personalized Real Estate Road Map Strategy Session ( http://TractionRealEstateMentors.com/strategy ).
What your stepping stone goals should be is usually a mystery.
You could try to think them up on your own, but I haven’t seen this work very well.
You’ll get much farther, much faster, when you have someone experienced in helping people with this issue to guide you along the way and through a structured process for figuring it all out.
Because the right path for you isn’t always apparent. It takes someone else to get it out of you. To dig it out from your core because you’ve kept it buried down deep for too long.
Breaking it down in this fashion causes major breakthroughs.
I’ve trained a lot of people and this is what works.
I’m not basing this on random conjecture, but on many years of coaching people through to success.
And the ones who succeed follow my advice and eat the elephant one bite at a time.
Otherwise the thought of it all is overwhelming, and therefore self-defeating.
So set SMALL goals then you’ll actually make PROGRESS.
