Setting Goals – Three Simple Steps

Do you know where you’re going? Have you been setting goals?

Do you have a clear indication of how your dreams are going to play out in your life?

Have you written them down?

Ok, here’s where we all run into a problem with setting goals

Maybe  you are like me; I was not brought up to write out my goals. I grew up in a very blue-collar family environment.  We had a few business owners in the family and they were successful, I guess, but nobody ever talked about their goals or writing them down.

And so very often, because we don’t know where we’re going, we’re just letting life happen to us. That’s not a great life, when you are just letting life happen to you.  You don’t get what you want that way.

If you want to achieve something in any area of your life – business, family, relationships, etc., you have to write down what you want to achieve. 

If you don’t write your goals down, it’s like getting in your car everyday without knowing where you’re going. You just keep driving around aimlessly with no end in sight because you don’t know what that is, or even looks like.

Here’s a few simple steps to get you started on setting goals

I hope this helps you, like it did me.

Step 1 – Writing

  1. Sit down and put pen to paper – not keyboard to document. This is very important.  Choose one area of your life.  Business, family, relationship.  Work on one area  of your life at a time.
  2. Create the list of what you want to achieve in that area.
  3. Be sure to include the goal date, or it will remain a wish forever.
  4. Work that list to split it out into specific details until you know exactly how you want your life to be in 30, 60 or 90 days.

Step 2 – Visualizing

  1. Read your detailed list every day to begin to visualize it.  If you need to re-write it, then do that. Remember that you are an ever-evolving individual.  Your goals evolve as you do.
  2. When you begin to visualize your end goals, you have to get into your visualization by really FEELING IT.  To bring that feeling to life and really experience it, you have to imagine how that experience will be.  Imagine how it will truly look, feel, taste, smell and sound to be in that place where your goal is now accomplished.
  3. Practice the visual you have created in your mind daily.

Step Three – Being

This is the hardest and most important step in the process. It’s where most of us fail, simply because we fear that we will fail.  That’s why our belief in achieving is so important.

This is where you take your visualization to the next level.  BE the goal you want to achieve.  Act like you have already accomplished what you set out to do.

Some people will think you are cra-cra crazy, but when you get to this level of visualization, belief kicks in and nothing can stop the Universe from bringing you what you absolutely believe in!

BEING your goal involves a solid belief in yourself that goes beyond what people think about you, and tramples your fears.

Act as if, and it will be.

One More Thing:

I just want to share something here that I listened to on a recent MLSP wake-up call that Justice Eagan hosted.  He said:

When the pain of saying no to the things you want to do in your life outweighs the pain of saying no to the things you are scared of doing in life, change takes place.

So, I encourage you to go forward with your goals.

  • Write them down in great detail. 


  • Read them every day.


  • Visualize them with passion and enthusiasm. 


  • Step into your goals as if they were already here.
