Everyone views success differently. Some view success as accomplishing mile stone goals that they have set; for instance:
* You sold a big ticket item
* You achieved a raise in pay or status
* You finally got your product up and running, ready to take sales
* Or you finally reached your goal of being a millionaire (congratulation)
The point is in order for anyone to reach the milestone goals, you must first reach the minor goals.
What are minor goals?
Minor goals are your daily goals that you need to reach everyday in order to break the milestone goal you have in mind. Here is how I do it.
Create a mind map with your milestone goal in the center. If you have a 1 year goal in mind, create branches from the milestone, working back wards, with your 11 month goal and continue backwards until you have reached your 1 month goals. This may take a few days in order to complete as you visualize each and every goal you will need to accomplish.
Once you have narrowed your goals to down to month 1, you need to set daily goals, also working backwards from 30 to day 1. Don't worry if you need to adjust any of the goals you have on your mind map, as you go along. You will not beable to foresee every little detail. Life throws curve balls, so create realistic goals that you have to streach for but can be easily acheived with the resources you have now... not later.
The magic is in the daily goals. It is by acheiving each daily goal that you will reach your milestone goal. You will also have more confidence as each daily goal is achieved. Which means Success everyday. So, let me ask Are you successful today?
