How Get Your Dream Job and Achieve Your Goals in 2013

Let me introduce you to what we overlook in the bid of getting the big we leave the small and very important things undone. This is how to achieve your goals in 2013 whatever it may be:

Lesson 1: The Most Important Rule is writing Your Goals down that You Must Follow If you want to Achieve Success.

Most of us already know that it is vitally important to write your goals down. The simple mechanical act of writing makes your goal visible and tangible. That’s no longer just a thought! Now it’s a commitment.
But there is one rule you must follow to succeed that very few know. It’s not enough to write your goal down…… You have to describe it in complete detail!

Make it as specific as possible. Compare: “I want a new job” and “I want to a new job in human resource department with an oil and gas company in Lagos with a salary of N120, 000…”

“I want to make a lot of money” is not the goal. It’s just a wish. “I want to make N100.000 monthly with my business by July 1st.”

You must make this goals visible by putting it where you all always have contact with it , like on your room wall.

Lesson 2: The one question you must answer before you take action.

There is one question you must answer before you start achieving your goal. Failure to answer that question will result in lack of motivation and failure to follow the plan.

Take a piece of paper and answer this question in writing:

WHY do I want to achieve your goal? No, not just because “I want”. There are reasons behind your dreams, usually dozens of them and if you realize why you want to reach your goal, you’ll be most likely to follow your plan till the end no matter the obstacles on your path, mostly in this part of the world where it seems things don’t work the way i

For example, why would you want to get the job in 2 months?

• To have prestige
• To feel good about yourself
• To be able to take care of yourself and your family
• To impress your spouse/people around
• …………………….list all of them.

List every single reason. Try to imagine all the benefits. The truth is the longer the list, the stronger your motivation will be.

Read your reasons first thing in the morning. Even better, frame them and hang them on the wall. It will keep you focused and motivated.

I will continue on this by the next article to show you how to get started in the right direction, and show you simple techniques to overcome disbelieves and procrastination.

To your success!
