Ever wondered how some people in your life have managed to achieve such a lot in what seems like a short time?

A few lucky accidents may happen every now and then, but largely, people need to set goals to achieve them.

And then you need a plan, but that’s getting ahead of ourselves.

Ready to be an overachiever? Want to accomplish a few nearly impossible feats?

Stop thinking small

If you’ve got a yearning for big results in your life, you’ve got to stop boxing yourself into a corner. You can’t walk around telling yourself that you can’t do it, or something is too large for you. You need to let yourself dream of all the things you can, then let your imagination wander even further.

Say you want to get out of debt, for example, you don’t actually just want to get out of debt, do you? No. You want a savings, and some monthly spending cash, and a new home or a lavish holiday, right? So dream those things; plan for those things; and then work towards those things. You will achieve considered goals that you plan around and strive for, so why think small?

Got the big picture? Get some detail

Once you realise that becoming an entrepreneur isn’t enough (you want to take over your industry perhaps), then you’ve managed the first step to tremendous results. However, just because you want something, it doesn’t mean you’ll get it. (Although your brain will try everything it can to make it so.)

You need to work on a plan, and then towards that plan. And, your plan needs to be exquisitely detailed. The more comprehensive your plan towards goal achievement becomes, the more likely you are to stick to it – and achieve it.

Take action!

That’s it. Take action – that’s what you need to know about big results.

Well, it’s almost that simple. All the other goal setting rules and time management regulations still apply. Plus, there are some pretty handy tricks you can use to achieve your goals. But you can actually get going on gigantic dreams right now.

Stay motivated

It’s remarkably easy to work when you’ve got something you’re working towards. Keep your dream in focus at all times.

How low can you go?

How small can you make the action steps on the way to achieving your goals? The smaller the titbits, the easier it is to make progress every day.
