Hello! Since we are already on our way to the last quarter of the year, I’m here to help you get started for the upcoming new year and we will do that by setting up goals for the year 2017! I know it is a bit early to already talk about the coming new year, but heck! It is already September and Christmas is just around the corner. 🙂
So. Plain and simple we will set goals, but the most important thing is, your goals should be aligned to your vision.
So what is a vision? A vision is a vivid imagination of how you see yourself moving forward, say 3 to 5 years from now.
3 to 5 years from now, maybe you see yourself driving a new car, maybe you see yourself living in a very beautiful house, you see yourself earning large amount of money.
What are the things that you’re doing and enjoying 3 to 5 years from now and with that vision, it is your long term goals.
Now let us set our goal for the next year. Our goal should be aligned to that vision and that’s what we want to achieve.
Yes we want to have a lot of things in life. Maybe you already have done your dream board, you have pictures of things that you want to achieve in your life.We all know that, we as humans, want a lot of things in life, however a lot of times we don’t get to achieve it immediately.
So for this moment, I want you to set the 3 most important goals that you would like to achieve in the coming year.
Why just 3? Why not all of your dreams?
Yes, of course, we have a lot of things that we want to work on. However, for so many years, you have tried to achieve a lot of your goals, but then at the end of the year, when we go back and review what we have done, we find out that we haven’t achieved any or all of the things that we have bought or we have done is not aligned to really what we want.
So again at the end of the year during the new year, you want to restart and go back to zero.
BACK TO ZERO.
So this time we have to set up just 3 important goals.
The first goal that you would like to have is a Material Goal.
What are the things that you want to buy or what is that one best thing that you want to have that you would really feel rewarded.
Maybe you want to buy a new phone, maybe your phone is really old about 2 to 3 years old and you want to replace it with a new one. Maybe you want to buy a new laptop. Maybe your laptop is already old and slow that it needed to be replaced also. Maybe you also want to buy a new car and for so long, you’ve been driving a second hand car, maybe you want to experience driving a new car.
What is that one material thing or material reward that would really make you happy and you’d really, really feel fulfilled, that for whatever you have worked for so long, you know that it is going to be really worth it.
The second goal that you would like to have is to Travel.
I love to travel, I don’t know, maybe you also love to travel.
I have travelled all over the Philippines and also the Southeast Asia and soon the Whole world. Life is too Short for you not to explore the wonders of the world.
What area or what place do you want to go to? Which country do you want to visit and really spend moments of your life?
Who among in your loved ones, in your family, you want to bring in that travel and of course there will always be a price, so how much are you willing to spend or how much would you want to save for this travel that would really make your life worth living, that would really excite you and fire you up and hopefully, will make you earn more and more and more.
The third goal that you would like to have is Investments.
It is about time that you change your life and start investing on something.
If you haven’t started investing before or you have started a few years back, that is fine. We could still set up an investment goal.
If you haven’t started any investment, maybe just investing or buying a new or your first Insurance policy would be already enough.
Maybe you want to invest in the Stock Market, in Mutual Funds, it depends on your liking.
Maybe you want to save for a down payment for your Brand new house, that could be an investment for you.
Maybe you want to buy a Real Estate property and rent it out. Whatever investment that you want to fulfil.
I want you to save up for those goals, but I want you to right it down.
So go ahead, write down the 3 most important goals for yourself and read it regularly.
Because these goals, this top 3 goals will really fire you up because this are the 3 things that are really important in your life right now.
So, why just 3? Why not 10? Why not 20?
Again there’s no limit to our goals, there’s no limit to what we can achieve.
However, I want you to focus first on 3 things, so that when you achieve one you can now cross it off and change it to another goal, put another goal, set another goal.
You don’t need to wait for the end of the year to set another goal.
For example, you have achieved and bought your new Laptop by March, by April you could start setting up a new goal in terms of Material Reward, maybe during Summer you went to another country, you enjoyed travelling to that country, you can now cross it off your list and create another one.
But again, I want you to focus on 3 things only, so that you’ll know what you are working on. 3 at a time. That is the key.
A lot of people set a lot of goals but at the end of the day they haven’t achieved anything, any of those goals.
You wouldn’t want to hit a brick wall…
So more importantly, even though it is just 3 and you get to achieve it, I will ask you: Will you be more happy achieving those 3 goals at the end of the year compared to having a lot of goals however, you’re not able to get any or maybe yes, you’ve earned a lot of money then you get to buy a lot of things but then when you reviewed everything, is it all the things you really want? Maybe none of the things that you had are the things that you really want.
That is the importance of you setting just 3 goals. It makes your mind focus on what is really important.
So write down those goals and hopefully you get to achieve it very very soon.
I’m praying for you. I really hope for you to have the best year ever.
