There are three types of goals that you’ll likely choose to create.
The main three types of goals for you life, business and relationships are based on time, focus and topic.
1. Time goals
are commonly referred to as short-term or long-term goals. An example would be having a short-term goal of learning how to make a salad and a long-term goal of learning how to create and grow your own parts of your salad in your backyard garden.
2. Focus goals
could be described as huge goals or dream goals. They are a major driving force in your life or decision making process. For example, last year I had a goal to launch a new vertical in my business and it impacted many other areas of my personal and business life, including the decisions I made in each.
3. Topic-based goals
can be personal, professional, career, and financial. Maybe you have a goal to save a certain amount of money. Or to complete a leadership development program. These are goals that are important in a certain aspect of our life.
Time, focus, and topic goals are not mutually exclusive. We can have short-term financial goals, long-term career goals, and another type of combo
Most importantly, get started with one and let us know if you need any support along the way.
Are you at the point where you’re asking for help yet? Let’s hope so, but let’s keep reading this quick blog for a few choice thoughts on the matter.
Often times in life we can get stuck when we start to get comfortable with our situation through complacency. It’s likely, you’ve worked hard to get to where you’re at in life, but all too fast… we can start to slip.
What’s the solution to getting out of a rut?
Get some support. (Oh, ok… that was easy)
But wait… there’s a few more questions to think about and a little more we wanted to say on the matter before you go to YouTube and end up watching cat videos….
Would you like to change your life?
Are you willing to “get uncomfortable” and look at something you may be doing to sabotage yourself?
What would a larger version of your life, career or relationship look like?
Depending on those answers, you may find that your thoughts or vision may need some adjustments…
Ahh, yes… SOLUTIONS!
To overcome a limiting vision or belief, we need to start with a mini clarification process for our dreams, our vision and likely even our purpose.
After that, we can start laying the groundwork for a kickass action plan and some accountability to give us some discipline around making our goals happen.
What’s that really mean? Well, it means to:
– Have a plan and follow it. – Get rid of distractions and other people’s agendas. – Change things up so you don’t get into a repetitive everyday grind. – Continue to push the limits of what you believe you can achieve. – Create high performance habits. – Understand you’ll get discouraged and will be able to fall back on a plan and a supporter to make it through the next segment of your process.
The biggest thing to remember when getting out of a rut is that…
You can do it!
All you need to do is get into action and ask for support so you don’t attempt to do it alone.
Now for those of you looking to hit a specific goal, I’ll be glad to help you… It’s something I’ve been working on for the last 15 years.
The science of hitting a goal!
For this… I recommend going through the first free part of my Ultimate Goals Program. It’ll help you lay the foundation for clarifying your goal and to create the simplest action plan for successfully accomplishing your goal. Here’s the link to the free part of the training! Enjoy.
The best way I’ve found to get results is not by making resolutions, but by creating solid habits that promote long-term goal success. (Uhhh, sounds like work) But wait, it’s not all that complicated or challenging. (Mmm, ok, I’m listening…)
Corey, give me a few examples while you have my undivided attention
If you want to get better at running your business or to make more money in your business, start the habit of time management or the habit of becoming a student of a mentor.
If you want to become a best selling author, start the habit of writing everyday and get a Coach who has already done what you want.
If you want to be more aware and WOKE, start the habit of meditating throughout the day or go to yoga every Mon, Wed & Fri.
What’s this habit stuff you speak of…?
Oh, snap… they’re just things you do on autopilot without needing to give them much thought. For example, like lifting the seat when you pee (Not… 😉
I’ll be the first to tell you that creating the right habits isn’t always easy because we have so many bad habits that have already set up shop in the prime real estate spots in our mind.
So, because creating bad habits is normally easy and creating good ones seems to be a challenge, I’ve put together a short guide on how to build good habits that can change your life for the better.
Step 1 to setting your new year’s resolution or goal!
First off, pick a positive habit that would yield the results you’re looking for. Think of habits as actions and thoughts that you gravitate towards by default.
Find those things that are easy and rewarding. Make them simple so you can stick to them when you don’t really feel like doing them. For example: an easy habit is to drive to the gym every morning before work. A complex one is to go to the gym and work out.
The first habit is easier and will lead to the more complex one naturally, so start simple. Also worth mentioning is that most of the time we focus on quitting bad habits or on stopping actions. Instead of quitting junk food, shift your energy towards eating more veggies and drinking more water.
More support on that first one please…
Think about the positives and the things that you can add before you start trimming everything undesirable out of your life.
Here’s the logic!
The more good things you do, the better your mood will be. Soon, you’ll be in a positive place where the negative (bad) things (habits) will no longer fit in or feel as good to do.
Here are a few examples of positive habits worth implementing:
Meditating more, journaling, practicing gratitude, driving to the gym (or yoga studio ;), eating more veggies, telling people how much you care for them and even asking for support when you need it (from the right people of course).
A quick story that supports my case
I went out to eat the other night with a friend and instead of having a bacon burger with cheese and fries, I ate a Cobb Salad with avocado, cucumbers and big leafy greens added in it.
Just a little shift that led to more desirable circumstances for me like, a better looking body, better digestion, better sleep, more vibrant skin and actually a cleaner type of energy to burn. Better concentration and much more great stuff…
We Do Well With Baby Steps.
Most of us tend to make these HUGE lists that are full of all these new changes that we NEED to make, but end up discouraged or overwhelmed. We also tend to think that we need to achieve them all at once or by next week, but the reality is that things take time and that’s ok.
All the more reason to make sure we choose the right things to change in our lives.
Focusing on one habit at a time will prevent that overloaded feeling that can put us into paralysis and inaction. A word of caution if you’re anything like I am… The more you try and change at the same time, the less you are likely to maintain over the long haul. If you were to ask a habit-guru, they would confirm this! (Habit gurus? I need you now)
So boil this down for me…
Any step in the right direction is a win, even if its small.
When I started meditating, I set an hour-long goal. This was absurd! A first time meditator will rarely have the discipline to complete 5 mins much less an hour.
Here’s the bad part about unrealistic goal setting…! When we set overly audacious and unrealistic goals, we fail. That can lead to us feeling badly about ourselves and associating everything with the negative experience. And what do we do as humans when we feel pain?
Yes, that’s correct, we tend to run away from it.
So, what did I do to WIN?
I set my new action goal for meditating to just TWO-MINUTES. Guess what, once I got done with the 2 mins, I went longer just because I was in the swing of it and it felt good.
I ended up doing that 2 mins a day for a whole year and most of the days, I went up to 30 mins! (Holla!)
Another time, I went on an 8 month non-workout… stay inside all day and work on my business quasi-losing streak…
and I wanted to get back in shape. So, instead of jumping back into a ridiculously challenging yoga class or a brutal be sore for 2 weeks weight lifting regimine, I started out with the commitment of a one mile walk per day with my dog. Soon, I was in the yoga class doing handstands, warrior poses and arm balance poses!
I finally understand the importance of starting small and staying consistent. The go big or go home thing can come as we get consistency under our belts first!
Any more inspiring examples?
Oh, heck yea! When I was all “juiced up” on eating healthier, I started with adding a salad before every meal. After a month or so, my meal preps went from ⅓ veggies up to ½.
What about the challenges or downfalls I experienced?
Not setting reminders or calendar entries for ALL things I was committed to. For the longest time my calendar was filled with all business-related stuff. This caused me to overlook my other commitments and important events.
So now, my meals and exercise sessions are now blocked out in time chunks and now they get just as much attention as my other “important” business things do.
Ok, this blog is getting long, anything else that needs included in this article?
Yes, two little ones.
The first is to get support with accountability. Either findsomeone line a coach or a close friend that can help you. I always tend to perform better when I know someone is watching me and helping me raise the bar.
If you need help with accountability, reach out to someone on CoachRanking!
The second is to stay consistent! The more consistent we tend to be, the better. There will always be resistance which typically come in the form of excuses and overwhelm, but pushing through them will bring a sense of daily accomplishment for you.
Something useful to try
Make a chart of your wins each week! Write down your wins every week so you can see your progress. A solid visual picture of our successes is a very powerful tool for us to build momentum.
Imagine that you could train your brain this year and it would support you for the rest of your life! Notice I said for a whole year oppose to the other wack stuff you hear from people out here on the internet, “Like… 14 days to create a new habit… right?”
The reason why I say 3 months to a year for this process is because we’re dealing with preexisting negative and sabotaging beliefs already deep in your subconscious.
I like to tell people that —> the part of their brain (subconscious mind) is like a computer with programs (beliefs) running in the background.
Ok great… how do I do it?
You’ll be able to identify your most disempowering belief and get rid of it so it no longer holds any power over you. Even better, you’ll be able to create a wildly empowering and supportive new belief and install it in your subconscious mind like your brain is a super computer.
What else can I look forward to?
Get ready to retrain your brain in a replicatable way that you can customize for anything you want more on in your life, business or relationship.
We are going to train your brain with a Mantram that you create for yourself. This will be very personal, yet powerful work to increase your brain power and aid in your 30 day goal success (actually a life of success). Trust this process and give yourself permission to look into the places in your mind that may be confronting and challenging. I’ll do it with you so it’ll be easier!
Training Our Brains… How Do We Prepare ?
So, before we train your brain by creating a new belief that empowers you… we’ll want to identify at least one big negative or disempowering belief that may sabotage your efforts, your success and your goals.
Try your best to pick one of your most disempowering beliefs about yourself or about being successful (whatever your definition of success is)…
In this section, you’re encouraged to think of a belief that you’re likely holding onto from childhood, early adulthood or just something that you picked up from someone else that’s likely negatively affecting your life, business or relationships.
As you think about what yours could be, consider these four very common examples of disempowering beliefs that most of us need to address (Pick and circle the one that most resembles yours)
Hint: they all deal with worthiness.
1.) Not being worthy enough
2.) Not good enough
3.) Not worth supporting
4.) Not worth loving
Our subconscious is black and white as far as it “co-signing” something or not. The subconscious says, “Yes, you’re worthy of having a million dollars in the bank and a significant other that loves you sleeping in your bed every night to keep you warm and to make you laugh… or it doesn’t.)
The subconscious makes up it’s rules based on our past (previous actions, repetitive thoughts, input from parents and teachers, our daily habitual reinforcements, commercials and advertisements we watch and many more things.) Got it, very black and white. So our job is to slip in one (a more serving belief) that the subconscious can accept… and that happens through reinforcement of a SMART Mantra. Once we articulate the new one… reinforce it through daily repetition [actually bombardment] then it’ll accept it in and work for us forever!)
The unfair part: back when we were 2 yrs old to 11 yrs old… a teacher or parent could slip a belief (judgement) in as simply as mentioning that we were inadequate, dumb, stupid, a waste of energy to teach, slower than the other kids or just not good enough… and the subconscious mind took it right in as gospel 🙁
The cure: we can change those with some work and consistency. HOLLA!
We’ll come back to that later, but for now…
Can you think of a disempowering belief that relates to the one you circled above and also one that applies to your biggest struggle or most undesirable pattern in your life, business or relationship as it relates to your 30 Day Goal?
An example of my disempowering belief as it relates to my 30 day goal of “Jogging 4 miles everyday is that I won’t have enough time and that I’m already overwhelmed and at full capacity” could be: Because my business is not where I want it, I’m not worthy of taking extra time for myself yet.
Kinda stings, huh. Well it’s ok and we have a great process for erasing and building a better belief that empowers us to do more and feel better. Again, everyone has them and that’s why they are exactly where they are at in their lives.
Ok, so what do you think your biggest disempowering belief is as it relates to your 30 Day Goal?
Kindly write that down on a piece of paper like this:
The disempowering belief is that: ________________.
Ok great… Part 2
Ok, great work. Now, what is the opposite of that belief above if you were to write it in the affirmative (or in a positive way)?
Write the new EMPOWERING positive (or affirming) belief : _____.
Let’s Create A New EMPOWERING Belief To Ensure Your Success In This 30 Day Goal
Just below this line is the structure that many people use for what’s called a S.M.A.R.T. goal, but without little twist on it which builds it deeper in your subconscious.
That acronym stands for:
R: Results driven
T: Time based
Inside the subconscious mind, we work with the varying levels of worthiness in the psyche. Boiled down in the least technical way possible, we tend to realize the results in our life (and business) based on what our subconscious mind deems us as worthy of receiving.
To counteract this, we use a backdoor “Worthiness Hack” and Mantram to reprogram our desired results into our belief system in a very fast and permanent way. You’ll learn in the next section how to practice this powerful Mantra in a very effective and simple way.
This is what a structured Mantra looks like utilizing this worthiness hack:
Because I’m Worthy of _____________________, I, __(X)___, __(Y)___, and __(Z)___ for the next 90 days (or by…[pick a date 90 days out from today])
My personal 30 Day Goal might look like this…
“Because I am worthy of exercising and taking time for myself, I jogged 4 miles everyday, enjoyed it and increased my work performance so I made more money by September 1, 2019 or sooner.
[See, a little better and addresses my main disempowering beliefs so I can create new neural pathways around both the new beliefs and the desired results.]
Let’s Create Your Personalized Mantram
If you could overwrite (or groove a new neural pathway) around your existing negative belief… would you?
Great, let’s do that here so you can start training your subconscious mind to work for you.
To get the best results with this process, your new belief (Mantram) needs to be clearly articulated on paper and rewritten about 5-10 times a day for roughly 90+ days straight.
Yikes, I know! It can technically be done in 5 mins and it will become a pretty introspective meditative period of your day.
That will start to seed the new belief in your deep mind so it can grow into a new habit.
Pro Tip: It’s important to handwrite your Mantram daily to incorporate your motor functions in this process for lasting effects.
Even if you’re skeptical… about this type of process, just give it a try.
So, to succeed in your 30 day goal, what things must you be worthy of receiving or doing to achieve it? Fill it in below:
Create Your New Belief: Because I am worthy, ___________.
Create Your New Result: The end result I will have in 90 days is: ____.
Do you feel any better with this level of clarity on your new result?
What Is A Realistic Action Plan For Implementing Your Mantra?
Step 1. Determine if any outside factors are enforcing the old disempowering belief. Remove them if possible and practical.
Step 2. Hand write your new Mantra 5+ times per day for 90+ days consecutively (Use the template at end of this Action Guide)
Step 3. Speak your Mantra in front of the mirror 5+ times per day for 90 days consecutively (Use the template at end of this Action Guide)
*Notes for increasing the effectiveness of your Mantra
* Try to viscerally feel the results of your Mantra while you’re speaking and writing it so it anchors deep into your frontal cortex.
* Bring your awareness to the “New Vibration” of your Results and give them color, context and texture. Bring them to life through awareness of new feelings and emotions related to them.
* STAY CONSISTENT and make time for this daily practice (10 mins first thing in the AM works well. Integrate it as part of your Power Hour [a dedicated hour everyday to energize your body, flush your system, focus your mind and connect your spirit to a higher purpose])
* Make your new belief and results realistic so your subconscious mind will accept them in.
Ok, you’re on it! Way to go… There’s one more resource I have for you to help accelerate your process, deepen your new belief and help you access a deeper inner power.
Sweet Corey… What’s Next?
If you loved this… I mean really loved this article, than you could watch this video and then come join us for free as we go into the Ultimate Goals Course I created for my friends! That link’s here when ur ready!
I’m going to show you how to set up “PRECISE” results and outcomes in a way that you may have never experienced before. This specific piece of technology has been working for my mentors and their students for years and it has predictably changed my life, my business and most of my clients lives with scary accuracy.
What Is A V.C.P.R. and How Do I Use It?
I love this section more than most because it combines many natural powers of our minds and the universe in a peanut butter and jelly sandwich type of way. Imagine for a moment that you could design remarkable things in your life with no filter or limits. That all you had to do was write them down on paper and the gears of the universe would turn in the direction of your words.
Before you get into writing your own V.C.P.R., let me tell you a bit more about what a great VCPR can do and then how to create one.
If we’re being honest… this question should jolt you a bit. What’s at stake for your business, life and loved ones if you don’t take the lead role and create the things that you want most? The uncomfortable answer may be… Your Whole Big Beautiful Vision For Your Life & Legacy.
In a moment, we’re going to go through an example V.C.P.R. so you can get into action around yours.
Think for a moment about what you see yourself doing in a wide array of situations. Do you see yourself doing a certain type of work or helping a specific type of cause? How do you envision the world? Your businesses? Your conversations and even your celebrations?
In this next section, we will be going into your version of the VCPR as it relates to your life, business and your next 2-3 years. We will be using a process called The Connection Formula to connect you to your ultimate Vision and path.
A solid V.C.P.R. begins with your vision of the world, your life, your career path, your relationships or something more specific dealing with your 30 Day Goal.
Ponder for a moment…
A vision is a lofty ideal that makes up who you are and what you ultimately want to see, experience and be a part of in life. Your vision is very closely linked to the legacy you wish to leave for your family and the world.
Do you have a Vision that you’re really connected to? (Circle YES or NO)
Is it your Vision or is it someone else’s that you’re following?
Ok… What is your level of connectedness to that Vision? Circle one 1-2-3-4-5 (Five is very connected)
For example, Mine as it relates to my 30 Day Goal of “Jogging 4 miles a day” is: __That people live in well rounded health, wellness and joy___.
Ok, your turn… What is your Vision as it relates to your 30 day goal? Kindly, write it below.
My Vision is that: __________________________________________________________
A purpose is the reason for which something is done or created or for which something exists.
Ponder for a moment…
What is the purpose of you accomplishing this 30 day goal?
Here’s an example of how to structure a purpose: to (_____do something specific / accomplish your goal____) so that (_____something very personal to you____), (______something more social, family or community based_____), and (_______MY VISION_______) happens.
For example, mine purpose as it relates to my 30 Day Goal of “Jogging 4 miles a day” is: __To enjoy jogging 4 miles a day so I think more clearly, reduce inflammation and make greater gains at work to positively impact more people’s lives.
Now it’s your turn. Fill out yours below:
My purpose is to: __________________________________________________________
______________________________________________________ so that ______________
A context is an attitude, a way of being, an atmosphere or a way of showing up to a situation to facilitate your purpose and results.
Ponder for a moment…
What is your context for accomplishing this 30 day goal?
Here’s an example of how what a great context looks like:
Ex 1: Solid as a rock.
Ex 2: Crystal Clear
Ex 3: I Love This Shit!
Ex 4: Get Er Done…!
Ex 5: Just Do It (That’s the context of NIKE, right?)
For example, my Context for accomplishing my 30 day goal is: (Caring) Putting my oxygen mask on first so I can effectively help others.
Ok, write your Context for how you’ll have to show up to accomplish your action items / benchmarks below:
My Context is: ___________________________________________________
A result is a consequence, an effect, or an outcome of something. Your results as they apply to accomplishing your 30 day goal may be peripheral things and bonus gifts that you receive or learn as a result of doing your 30 day goal process with us. You can still get these results that we’ll create below even if you’re 30 day goal doesn’t happen according to plan. On this V.C.P.R., you can create about 5-20 results. Naturally, these should really be things that you want to gain experience or have happen!
We break results down into two seperate areas:
1.) Concrete results or measurable and tangible results. (For example, a concrete result could be… I lost 2% points of fat on my body by day 30. Another concrete result could be… I reduced my 4 mile time by 15% by day 30. They are concrete and measurable. Plus, they are different than my initial 30 day goal.
2.) Ethereal results or unmeasurable or tangible results. (For example, an ethereal result could be… I felt like a winner when I helped people work towards and accomplish their 30 goals. Another ethereal result could be… I felt more confident when getting on video and producing content for people.) You can tell if you got them, but you can’t physically measure them. Right? Like how confident did I feel as a result? Well, more but there’s no number to measure my confidence level that rose from helping people. Could say 50% but it’s still not considered concrete.
Now, how do you properly structure a result on your V.C.P.R.? Here’s a great rule of thumb. Every result you gain is caused and linked to a specific action.
Ok? So technically, your action items from Day 8, could be your action items… and how you could write that would look like:
(Concrete Result #1) Because I kept my shoes by the door, I thought about running all day long and enjoyed myself when I did run.
Ok? And an example of my ethereal result could be written like this:
(Ethereal Result #1)By running everyday, I felt like a more attractive man.
Ok? They can be personal and meaningful to you.
Pro Tip: Remember to write your results in the past tense, as if they already happened. It’s a brain trick that we use to properly frame the event in the mind as something that’s already done opposed to something that NEEDS to be done.
Ok, your turn. Write about 5 Concrete Results and about 5 Ethereal Results for your 30 Day Goal Process below. (Try it and if you have questions, post to the group and ask for support, clarity and feedback)
Action item: Create your supplemental results below… (Actually, I’ll just list one example of each. If you want to do more or work with us further… (Hop in our dedicated group
(Concrete Result #1) ________________________________________________________
I know these take time and require a little bit of thinking, but the outcome will be surprisingly powerful and accurate. If you’re going to go for a big goal, it behooves you to do the complete process so you get MAXIMUM VALUE from our time together.
And if you have more results that you didn’t get to include in the above Action Guide slots… Add more on a separate sheet of paper… or create your own V.C.P.R. and do it again. At the bottom of this page, I’ll include a full template for you to use if you want to put it all together on one doc. I recommend that, but you may or may not go that far. (I normally go way beyond because I’m overly obsessive and hungry to change stuff in my life 🙂
Believe me… No one likes going through life all alone!
Even if they enjoy isolating (“Talking to the Men out there…”)
Like the Beatles say, We get by with a little help from our friends.” Believe this… no one gets to where they want without intervention and support from a caring TEAM OF PEOPLE.
That’s what you have here and there’s a skill and a bravery element needed to accept it in.
Today’s all about setting up a very specific and specialized support team. Likely, very new to you with the way we’re going to do it. But, it’ll be eye opening and fun. Be aware of roadblocks, inner resistance and a nagging reluctance to really reach out, be seen and be vulnerable. Most importantly, notice if you’re naturally coachable or supportable. I wasn’t in the first half of my life. I battled people that wanted to help me and I pushed out everyone. Naturally, I found myself all alone, sad, angry and lost. (Dum, Dum, Dum)… until I learned how to ask for help, to help others and to let others love and support me.
Quick Notes: Focus on the things you’ll need support with and who is the best person for that.
You can create your support team to ensure your success because you won’t be doing this alone. That’s the #1 thing we’re up against. Isolation and discouragement. Luckily, it’s what every other person is going through so you’re not alone in this particular challenge. Every race, gender and age range struggles with asking for help and getting support.
We’ll be outlining a few areas of our life that need support and we’ll be picking specific people, groups or resources to serve those areas best.
What Can A True Support Team Really Do For Me?
Easily put? A real team of support makes it so we never have to “do it alone” again. Life isn’t meant to be done all on our own. Get a team, share and collaborate!
Ok, this part should be fun and bring you some relief if you’ve been stressing about HOW YOU’RE GOING TO ACHIEVE THIS MONSTROUS 30 DAY GOAL. Let’s get started with the exercise below.
What’s Your Support Team Look Like?
In this section, you can include needs from your personal life and your business. For example, a psychologist could help both, however a life coach and a health coach would each deserve their own position at your table.
Be specific when writing the potential area for support on the left and the current or desired support team member on the right. These positions can also be paid services from companies, partners you add to your company, mentors and even volunteers or friends offering you free or bartered support.
An example of what mine may look like is: (Remember my goal and action steps from Day 6 & Day 7 – hopefully you read them and worked the Action Guides. If not, go back and do them!)
Area for support: Team Member:
___Organization_________________ ___Martin (My Biz Partner)______
Got it? Cool. These represent just a small fraction of what my real team looks like. In fact, I’ve got someone for everything in my life. Someone’s looking over my back and they have the designation of being “My Teammate & Mentor.” Build these and cast everyone for a specific role. I don’t go to a general friend or acquaintance and start talking about my business or with my insecurities in an area to which they have no frame of reference. Right? They’ll look at me with confusion, even if they love me. Their questions, support and advice will be “off.”
I don’t go to my Girlfriend and talk about work related struggles. Not her department. With her, we focus on love, healing, enjoying the fruits of our labor, having fun and doing other things. Cool?
Cool! So, let’s start casting your team below. If you don’t have someone for a specific area? Look to our FB group and get to know someone?
Think about it, they’re already in this FB group to support and be supported, so it’s a great place to start.
Lastly, if someone doesn’t work out, its ok because they’re segmented for a specific thing and your “Whole house” or “operation” won’t come tumbling down. Also remember that a complete 20+ person support list takes time to properly cast and build.
So, start with just a few that DIRECTLY RELATE to your success with this 30 day goal!
Who will be on your support team? Put me in there somewhere 🙂
Pick the best you can imagine because you’re worth it and you can make it happen! For some of them, you’ll have to call and ask… others, they’re already in place and aware of what’s important to you. Even more important, they’re aware of your shortcomings and you trust them to show up for you.
Action item: Do your best to fill in all 12 roles of area of you life to have support in and list the person or group to help you with that. Be specific!
Ok, you’re on it! Way to go…
So, looking at your list of support areas and corresponding support team, do you feel good about them? Do you need to make some phone calls and talk to some of them before you put this list in stone?
Well, once you do that, post your list in the FB group if you’re up to it and can trust us with your personal list. Start direct messaging people in the FB group to build relationships. Hopefully, you can find someone special who will become your team goal buddy. A prized position. Look to be someone else’s’ team goal buddy. It’s REALLY REWARDING!
Technically, it’s half the fun… to be part of someone else’s win and success. (That’s why I wake up every morning.) It’s a clean and loving, non manipulative energy that fills our souls!
What To Do Now?
Celebrate this win. Do something nice for yourself. Today was really important and hopefully you can feel the potential, the opportunity and the support.
Pro Tip: ONLY FOCUS ON THE SINGLE ACTION STEP IN FRONT OF YOU TODAY. The good news? You still have two more days to plan and get ready for your first action step / milestone.
In the previous blog article titled, “How to create your best 30 day goal,”(opens in a new tab) we focused on creating the BEST 30 day goal possible for this time in your life. Now, in this blog article, we focus on making a very simple action plan that you would focus on from here on out.
Thinking about the huge goal can be overwhelming and actually put us behind schedule…
Thinking about a simple daily action step to take you closer that that big goal is funner and more productive.
This tends to be the most overlooked process of goal setters. The result? You avoid overwhelm and actually feel like your goal is attainable and possible throughout your 30 day period!
Focus on the little milestones that will make up your complete goal. This step makes our process fun, manageable and easier.
Getting Started With Your Goal Milestones!
We’ll be chunking down your goal into about 5, 10 action steps to focus on. So, from here on, we won’t talk about or even focus on your 30 day goal. We’ll become obsessed with the simpler 5-10 action step milestones. We’ll gamify it or turn it into a fun game… you’ll see.
Ok, this part should be fun and bring you great relief if you’ve been stressing or wondering about HOW WE’RE GOING TO ACHIEVE THIS MONSTROUS 30 DAY GOAL. Let’s get started with the exercise below.
Start Here: Think about what it will really take to accomplish your goal. There should be simple things that you can do every day to move closer to completing the entire goal.
Pace yourself and make it easy on yourself. I’ll use the example of my goal which is to “To fill my goals class with 500 people”
If I have 20 days after my prep period (of 10 days), what can I do everyday to inch closer to it? I’ll do mine, then you can create yours below mine.
Pro Tip: these action steps / milestones may not be day specific. Meaning that if you have 20 days total… and “5” action steps, you’ll work on one milestone for about 4 days each.
Right? Some shorter and some longer. Try and make them even if possible.
My Example of My Goal Milestones…
*** I have to say, mine is an advanced option and fairly complex goal. Probably a bad example, but it’s what I WANT MOST and can manage! And I’ve been doing this process for the past 10+ years with astounding success, so I can take it on and get it done. I could have used the example of gaining 5lbs of muscle or in going to yoga 6 days a week. Right? Your goal doesn’t need to be complex or too big. Remember, we’ll have additional time to expand out goal next month if we want to.
Milestone / Action step #1: Make sure my FB group is live with a link to my Registration page in the description and rules for the group members on conduct and spamming.
Milestone / Action step #2: Get my second 30 Day Goal group member by personally messaging and calling FB friends to the FB group registration page. Also invite friends, family members and acquaintances.
Milestone / Action step #3: Create my FB ads (5 variations) and link them to my FB Group Registration page. (Includes new photo for each, headline and CTA)
Milestone / Action step #4: Turn on my FB ads and go LIVE
Milestone / Action step #5: Create and launch organic marketing materials, MEMEs and videos to disseminate and post to all 7 of my Social Media Platforms
Milestone / Action step #6: Check my FB ads stats and modify them to get $1 per registration.
Milestone / Action step #7:Ask everyone for help including (YOU) and the others already in this room to invite their friends while I also Invite the rest of my FB friends again (for the second time)
Milestone / Action step #8: Increase my budget spend by 50% on my winning ads and cut the losing or (unpopular / non converting) FB ads
Milestone / Action step #9: Create my Youtube Video Ads (2 variations) and link them to my Registration page. (Includes 2 previously shot videos, 2 headlines and 2 CTA’s)
Milestone / Action step #10: Ask for help again from the FB group to invite their friends. Ask my friends for a third time to join!
There it is… A big goal, 10 realistic action steps, an average of 2 days for each milestone and would yield an average of 25 new people per day. Now, because I do this full time and have the resources to support it, it’s considered a S.M.A.R.T. 30 Day Goal! Will I beat that goal? Likely. Can I quadruple it the following month? Likely. Is it realistic and attainable enough to build wins and momentum for everything else in my life? YES
Now it’s your turn (If you’re following along and actually setting your Action Plan now…!)
So, rewrite your final BEST 30 day goal again for clarity on your paper.
Now choose how many action steps are required to accomplish it and organize your actions below. (5? 10? It’s your call)
Make ten the MAXIMUM amounts of steps. If it requires more… downsize your goal because we don’t want this first one too overwhelming.
We’ll build on these goals as the days, weeks and months go by. We’re looking for small wins first.
Make these as simple small and clear as possible

You may have multiple goals floating around in your head as something you want to do, but one of them will be the BEST! This quick process will help you narrow it down. The result? You will achieve the #1 goal to advance your life and your agenda the most or furthest.
What Goal Is Worth Focusing On?
Like we were saying above… there are tons of goals that you could pick, but only one is perfect for this time in your life. By focusing on this blog article and applying it to what you want most, you’ll be able to achieve a bigger goal than you would have been able to without us.
Reverse Engineering Your Vision and Goals…
What Are Your Big Five Goals?
Like we were saying above… there are tons of goals that you could pick, but only one is perfect for this time in your life. By focusing on this blog article and applying it to what you want most, you’ll be able to achieve a bigger goal than you would have been able to without us.
Let’s take a look at your Big Five, aka, the most important things in your life and how they relate to this mission you’re on. With this exercise, we are looking for ONE specific thing in each area that you strive to improve over the duration of the next 90 days. After thinking about each of the main five areas (in no particular order), you can write down the ONE thing that’s most important to you at this point in your life for each of them. This section may be challenging for you to exclude some and include others, but that’s the point of this exercise and I’ll show you later how these relate to your biggest most attainable goal.
Your Biggest Health Goal or Concern
This represents any goals or outcomes relating to your personal identity, physical vibrancy, emotional wellness and intellectual acuity (or sharpness / capacity). List the one in particular that you are currently interested in improving in the next 90 days…
Your Biggest Family Goal or Concern
This represents any goals or outcomes relating to your closest relationships, children, pets and loved ones. List the one in particular that you are currently interested in improving in the next 90 days…
Your Biggest Career Goal or Concern
This represents any goals or outcomes relating to your skills, your professionalism, your ability to provide financial abundance and even your level of feeling satisfied in regards to your success. List the one in particular that you are currently interested in improving in the next 90 days…

This represents any goals or outcomes relating to your spiritual or religious fulfilment, your contribution to others and even your ability to trust your intuition. List the one in particular that you are currently interested in improving in the next 90 days…
Was there anything we missed?
Ok, great Was there anything we missed? Take a quick moment and ask yourself… did the 5 things you wrote above cover your #1 biggest and best goal for the next 30-90 days?
Now, depending on what you wrote above in the last 6 entries, you should know what your perfect goal or outcome is. Ask yourself, “What is the 30 day version of this?” What part of this goal can I chunk down to get realistically completed in the next 30 days?
Write that down on your notebook or paper also… in the form of… In 30 days from now, I will have (done something, received something, accomplished something or other)
Was That Realistic For You?
For example, my 30 day goal was to get 1,000 people into this goal challenge group in the next 30 days. It’s realistic… however, if I said 100,000 people in the group, that would be BS and set me up for a failure. Technically, I could’ve made it just 100 people and been fine, but I’ve done this sort of thing before and know how to advertise on FaceBook and Google. Plus I have my “homework, enrollment videos, websites, FB group, Action guides and more… already created. That increases your likelihood of success with this particular thing.
So, how far away are you from your goal? If you’re too far, dial it back. If you weigh 190 lbs and want to put on 20 pounds of muscle in 30 days… guess what, it’s not likely and it may stunt your 90 day and 180 day success. You may be better off going for 8 lbs of lean muscle… or 5.
So, did you modify your goal based on those last examples of being realistic? If so, rewrite it on your sheet.
How much further could we go with this process together?
Well… quite far. At this point, I’d recommend that you hop into our free goals support training program and community. We’ve got daily exercises like this, amazing training videos and a fb group full of support. You can come get registered by clicking this link… looking for to working together.
In this blog article we’ll focus on preparing your Spirit for lasting success, inner balance and harmonious events by meditating or praying for clarity on your final goal and for courage to follow through.
This article is written in the context of helping you prepare for accomplishing a major goal, challenge or outcome that you’d like!
If you aren’t sure what goal our outcome you’ll apply this to… that’s ok. In fact, it’s better because this process and prep period will completely clarify and hone the perfect one for you. Technically, you could create 1,000 goals that would be valuable, but one in particular will make the biggest difference in your life. So, eventually, you’ll get clarity on exactly what that one is. We ask for courage to follow through, but really courage to face the challenges that are sure to come during our process together. It’s the courage that will empower you to ask for help, answer the uncomfortable questions and stick to it over the long haul. The result? You will achieve your goal and feel great about it.
We are going to create a dialogue between you and a power greater than just you alone. For some, it’s God, others it’s Jesus, others it’s source, others it’s nature, others its their higher power, others it’s a group or an ideal or a higher purpose or a higher calling.
For our exercise, go with what comes natural to you and try and simplify this process down to the common denominator. An authentic and humble conversation between you and your higher power. Fair enough? Ok, cool.
If you’re struggling with this because of your spiritual or religious background… try focusing on a power greater than just you alone.
Our goal today is 2 fold, first to gain clarity on what your BEST 30 day goal is and second, to ask for the courage when you need it most.
Where The Heck Do We Start With This One?
I’d like to say first that this process can be very very simple. Even more importantly… my method is not the only way to accomplish this objective. Please customize it to fit your life, values and normal ways of doing this. This process can be a quick as you like or as long as you like. My tips for this process are as follows:
— Set somewhere quiet (eliminate distractions)
— Set your first intention to (Clarity on my 30 day goal) by writing it down
— Set your next intention to (Receiving Courage) by writing it down
— Set down, lay down or walk while you do this
— Meditate or pray for a set period of time (5-20 mins is great!)
If you get distracted with other thoughts or negative feelings, shift your attention on the fly. Go back to your original intention and keep going
What Question Should You Focus On Having Answered?
1.) Set your timer to a set period of minutes. (5-10 mins should be good) 2.) Set, lay or walk while you ask your higher power for this answer.
Be patient if it doesn’t come to you during this exercise. It may come in the middle of the night or in the morning.
