I’d like you to imagine this: You know exactly what you want to achieve and how you intend to achieve it. And, you have developed a comfortable step-by-step plan of action for going consistently toward your goals. What if I told you that you could stop imagining and actually start achieving those goals?

Are you ready to start achieving the goals you’ve been imagining?

Let’s start with setting one exciting goal.

1. Decide on one goal – one thing you’d like to achieve personally or professionally within the next twelve months. A goal should stretch you out of your comfort zone, but not be unrealistic or unachievable.

2. Commit to a date you’re willing to begin achieving your goal. Write a beginning date. Now, write a completion date – a date within the next twelve months when your goal will become reality. Be BOLD!

3. Decide on a goal achieving plan of action. What will you consistently commit to doing to make your goal a reality within the next twelve months? What activities do you need to accomplish to make your goal reality? Write all the activities out on paper, or in a Word file or spreadsheet. Can all these activities be completed within twelve months?

4. Break your activities into doable “chunks.” How much time and effort can you realistically give to working on these goal achieving activities each month, each week and each day? On a twelve month calendar write a major activity you’d like to complete each month. Completing one major activity each month will take you step-by-step closer to your goal.

5. The beginning of each month, look at the activity you’ve committed to achieving for that month. Decide how you will break that activity into doable weekly activities. Then, take those weekly activities and break them into daily tasks.

Being able to break your goal into bite-sized pieces will make goal achieving more realistic and doable. An important key to goal achieving is to consistently work on those activities that will take you one step closer to achieving your goal.

Success tip: If you commit to doing one positive and productive goal achieving activity each day for 365 days, you will definitely be on your way to making your twelve month goal reality.

For more step-by-step details on how to set and achieve your short-term and long-term goals, you will want to read and work the activities in my book 21 Days to Living Your Dreams.

This was the week I made up my mind to do some spring cleaning. I decided it was time to update and redo a few of my websites and landing pages.

It’s amazing how many things, and even my taste, seem to change every few years. What looked good to me in 2009 doesn’t seem so appealing in 2014. I carefully studied each site and decided what I wanted to update, change or even eliminate.

After reading an online article that stated visitors who visit your website decide within the first 50 milliseconds of landing on the site if they will stay or leave, I decided it was time to look at my sites through fresh eyes.

 

Here are some of the lessons I learned during my recent online spring cleaning:
1. It’s important to keep up-to-date with the latest Internet and Online tools and technology. It’s also important to know what today’s savvy consumers are expecting when they visit your site.

2. Review your websites, blogs, sales pages, etc. at least two times a year.

3. Carefully read your sales and opt-in pages for outdated content, pictures, graphics, or offers. Does your site load quickly? Did automatic revisions misalign articles or illustrations? Most importantly, does your site make a good first impression?

4. Double check all the links and “buy now” buttons on your sites to make sure they are working properly. Broken links and buttons can lose you not only credibility with readers and but paying customers as well.

5. As your business grows and evolves make sure your websites, blogs and sales pages grow and evolve with you.

During our spring cleaning we found some outdated pages and a few links that weren’t working properly. All in all, it was a day well spent.

Let me ask you, do you have any websites or online materials that may need a “spring cleaning?”

The Power of Unwavering Support and Belief is the fifth in the “Power of Appreciation” Series.
These posts will have an audio and readable version. You can listen as well as read this post. It may take a few seconds for the audio button to appear. Be sure to turn up your speakers

I’d like you to picture this: You have the unwavering support from the people who mean the most to you to go for your goals. How does it feel emotionally? How does it feel physically? With that type of unwavering support, do you believe you can achieve your goals?

Here are some synonyms for the word unwavering: Firm; unshakable; unfaltering; unbendable; steadfast; steady. Imagine now that those around you supported your hopes and dreams with unwavering support. Would you become more motivated to succeed? Would you have a more solid belief in your ability to succeed?

Unwavering support and belief doesn’t just come from others; you must also give yourself unwavering support. Belief in yourself and your goals produce the inner motivators that lead to success.

Let me ask you these questions:
1. Have you set your personal and professional goals for the next six to twelve months? If not, what’s stopping you? Is it belief in yourself or lack of support from others?

2. When you begin something new or start to do something you want to achieve, how do those closest to you react? Is it positive, neutral, uninterested or discouraging? If you are not receiving encouragement or support, what will you choose to do about it?

3. Do you believe, without an ounce of doubt, in your ability to succeed and achieve the goals you’ve set for yourself? If not, why not?

Sometimes it’s not possible to get the emotional and physical support you want or feel you need and deserve from the people in your life. There will be people who will not or cannot believe in you and your dreams. You can though believe in yourself and give yourself the unwavering support to go for your goals and live the life of your dreams. The unwavering support that will ultimately make the difference between success and giving up, is the unwavering support you are willing to give yourself.

Here’s a quotation from actor Halle Berry that seems to say it all, “There have been so many people who have said to me, ‘You can’t do that,’ but I’ve had an innate belief that they were wrong. Be unwavering in your approach.”
