The Mayan Calender Ended on this day 12-21-12

As you  probably know by now  we survived the end of the Mayan Calendar which some thought would usher in the end of the world.

I along with my family had the privilege and the honor to be present at Chichen Itza  the great Mayan Pyramid  for the last day of their calender. It was a very memorable experience. Lots of people from all over the world showed up to witness the happening.

Thank goodness  nothing happened…..the world didn’t end!

Now we must get back to work and move ahead with our lives and our business. It’s the new year coming up and it’s time to think about creating  some goals and the benefits of goal setting for the first quarter and the rest of the year.

If you’re like me you are excited about what’s next on the agenda. It is with enthusiasm that you should work and develop your  business.

You need goals to keep you on track.  The consequences of not thinking about what you want and where you want to go  might read like this:

You work and work and work  everyday but when you’re finished you find you  have no results and are still in the same place with no progress being made. What a waste of time! I don’t have the luxury of wasting time do you?

I’ve made a list of  benefits of goal setting and what they can do for you and your business.

Take a little time now to determine where you want to go and how to get there. This will help you save time and you will also see results for all the hard work you do.

 

 5 Benefits of Goal Setting:

1. Serves as a guide in helping you make decisions about what is important for your business and what steps you need in order to reach the goal.

When you are thinking about your goals, think about the benefit you will gain from putting in the hard work and the focus necessary to achieve that goal. Will the benefit match your expectations?

2. Separates real life actions from wishful thinking.

Remember in order to reach the goals you set you must do the work required wishful thinking will not take you there. Are you ready to take on the challenge?

Without the guide you can get lost in wishful thinking. This is where you will spin your wheels and get bogged down in busy work without any real results. This is where you waste your time. Wishful thinking can be helpful for the creative process but ultimately you have to set a plan into action.

3. It gives you a path to follow.

There is a  foundation you must build for success. You can’t have a strong business without a strong foundation, athletes , musicians and yes even entrepreneurs have to develop and grow to reach success. Discipline is a part of reaching your goals. We all need to set goals to help us stay on the path and keep us disciplined as we work towards success even if it’s 6 pack abs we are wanting to achieve.

4. Benefits of goal setting  helps you set priorities.

There should be goals for your life and goals for your business. Sometimes these goals will overlap.

We all want happiness and health in our lives but in our business we want to achieve success and a degree of wealth. What is important to you? Determine the order of importance and work on your goals from this perspective. Once you have the list then develop the plan.

5. Makes you responsible for you own successes and failures.                                                                                       goals sign

After you have defined your goals break them down into smaller steps. Really think about the process you need to go through. You can find free tools online to help you do this.  Here’s one I found that’s free and fun to use!

Getting to  your goal is a great feeling and can give  you a great sense of accomplishment that will enhance your self esteem and confidence.

Some helpful tips for getting the maximum benefits of goal setting.

To stay accountable it is a good idea to have an accountability partner. This person should be someone who can become invested in your success. My husband is a great accountability partner. He reminds me from time to time about the business side of what I am doing. He recommended I do spread sheets for my business profits and losses. His background is in business and mine is in medicine so I appreciate the helpful tips he gives me.It’s easy for me to just get into the learning and training and  also the socializing aspect of internet marketing. So having him as an accountability partner helps me stay on track.

It would also be helpful to have someone in the business who knows the challenges you face as an internet marketer. That accountability partner could also serve as a Master Mind Partner. Two heads are better than one and there are a lot of successful partnerships in internet marketing.
