MLM Tips: How To Set Goals

This should probably be called Goal Setting the Smart way or Smart Goal Setting.  A Mentor of mine and incredible internet marketer, Tim Erway came up with an acronym for goal setting from the word SMART!

As you can see from the graphic on the left what S.M.A.R.T. stands for.  I want to give you a quick summary of each of these items.

So let’s go through these 5 points and talk about How To Set Goals.

5 Steps to Goal Setting

1.     Simple

Keeping things simple when it comes to setting your goals is so important.  Many times we get carried away when setting our goals and make them much to complicated.

So when you are setting your goals use the KISS principle.   Make sure they are really attainable.  Don’t set a goal of making a million dollars by next month.

They need to be simple but push us also.  Not so simple that it won’t push you and can be easily achieved, but simple enough that you mind can accept the goal and work hard to achieve it.

2.     Motivational

Setting goals that are motivating are essential.  The last thing you want is boring, lackluster and not motivating goals.

I love Zig Ziglar’s quote:  [perfect_quotes id=”8813″]

The more motivational your goals are the more you will be driven to accomplish them.  I love Tim Erway’s comparison between motivation and inspiration.

He talks about not talking about your why but understanding your VISION.

So make sure that you set goals that are motivational to keep you excited each and every day.

3.     Ambitions

Each of us has ambitions that drive us and keep us moving every day.

Make sure that you goals are in line with your ambitions.  If you set goals that are opposed with your ambitions you will be fighting against yourself and what motivates you and drives you.

Here’s a great quote from Joe DiMaggio: [perfect_quotes id=”8818″]

So set your goals to be congruent with your ambitions.

4.    Relevant

I think this one is pretty self-explanatory.  Your goals should be relevant to the journey you are on.

Setting goals that are not relevant or don’t make sense to what you are motivated by, ambitious about or just excited about just doesn’t make sense.

So at the end of the day make sure that you goals are relevant to what you ultimately want to accomplish.

5.     Timely

This is another one that is critical.  You need to have a timeline for your goals.

Not only do you have to have a timeline they need to be timely.  They need to be something that is not set so far in the future that you lose your motivation and ambition.

So the key is to set realistic but timely goals that you can accomplish and move on to your next goal.

I hope this has helped you and given you a started on goal setting.
