Are you asking yourself how to have a great year?
Do you have plans in your life? Do you plan your success?
I am sure you want to be successful.
How great do you want your year to be?
Now, I’m sure that you have big plans, big hopes, and great hopes for your future.
I want to let you know that it all starts with a plan. Now the question is, do you have a plan for your success? This is an important question on how to have a great year.
If you don’t have a plan yet, then this is the best time to start planning. Why? Because as the old saying goes:
“IF YOU FAIL TO PLAN, YOU’RE PLANNING TO FAIL”.
Never forget to plan.
A lot of people that I know, some of our salespersons, some of my business partners, a lot of employees, and some of my friends, forget to plan, they just to act and act, they just want to do things every single day and come what may. Whatever will happen, whatever will come out in a day, it is what they will do. I’m not saying that it is a bad thing; they just maybe want to enjoy life and not think about it. But the reality is, it is better if you have a plan, so that when you wake up in the morning you’ll know what to do. When you go on a vacation and you go back, you’ll immediately have results because you’ll know what to do.
It is very important that you have a plan. If you want to answer how to have a great year, then do this.
When it is about November, almost the end of the year, for me this is the best time to plan your next year. Right now, I’m on my way to a meeting, we will be having a whole day planning with my business partners, also with our people, and we are here to plan for next year. I remember last year, we had a plan and I believe that 95% of what we have planned, we have already accomplished. We even have accomplished more that what we have planned. That’s why we had another great year, it is not yet the end of the year, but still, we’re doing really great. That is why we are so excited for today; we are going to plan for our 2017.
This time I want to share with you how you should plan your life. Whether you have a business, whether you’re just an individual or someone who wants to start a business, maybe you want to earn your first million in your business next year.
This is something for you if you want to earn your first million if you want to increase your income or your production next year.
I will be sharing to you 4 questions that you want to ask yourself on how to have a great year. This is also the pattern that I used when we do planning, assessment, and we want to do goal setting.
Question #1. What are your wins? What are the great things that you have accomplished this year so far?
You want to be grateful about it. One of the major habits of millionaires out there is that they have an attitude of gratitude.
Always be grateful. This is essential on how to have a great year.
So what is your best accomplishment this year in your business or in your life?
You may want to be grateful about it. You may want to thank God about it.
When you start being grateful, there will be more and more blessings to come your way.
That’s what millionaires do, we always list down and identify the things that we have accomplished. We celebrate our success.
Question #2. What are your goals for next year? What do you want to achieve next year?
Write down your goals. It may be something like you want to double your sale next year. Like in our company we want to achieve P4B sales next year. Personally, I want to double my income next year.
That is a declaration. That is a bold statement that you want to do. That is planning. Begin with an end in mind.
What’s your finish line next year?
When you start with your finish line, all the things that you need to do, you will find it out. You will have the answer because you set up the finish line.
Question #3. What are the challenges that you are facing that might hinder you from getting what you want to accomplish next year? What are the obstacles that you have? What are the things that you lack in your business or in your life that might be hindering you from getting what you want?
It is very important that you identify it, because you will be able to respond and react on it and do all the things that is necessary.
If you list down all the challenges that you identified, it will be easier for you to address that immediately.
Question #4. What are your plans this year and next year for you to solve your challenges?
Now that you have identified your challenges, you should be able to answer what actions plans you will do for next year.
So that is how you plan for a great year ahead. Read more of my blogs if you like more learnings.
