Achieve your dreams! Can you imagine how differently your life would look if you could attain any goal?
What would change if YOU could make a plan today that would change your life forever?
Seems like it would look a heck of a lot different for sure!
So your probably wondering, what is this magical trick?
How can it be possible to REACH ANY GOAL and achieve your dreams?
The answer isn’t something that I came up with out of thin air, and it’s not some ideal that sounds good but when applied simply falls apart. This is a FORMULA for success!
What I am about to share with you is a way to conduct business that has been in use and WORKING DAILY for 1000’s! The steps to reaching your goal and achieving your dreams are outlined below.
Now the reality is that I have simply learned these lessons as well, and am now trying to pass them on as easily as I can to YOU! Why would I share? Why would I give up the SECRETS? Well mostly because I am a giver! And because the world prospers when we as individuals prosper so let’s CREATE PROSPERITY together and make the world we live in a better place for everyone.
To reach YOUR goals they first have to be clearly defined. In this example we will be using a monetary goal for a few reasons. The first reason is for simplicity. The second reason is that Money is a HUGE motivator and many have a financial goal already in mind. So we will take for this example a number that for some reason seems to be the current target goal for many of $10,000. There is not time frame here we will simply use this number as our target to reach.
The next step is to break the target or goal that your working towards into manageable amounts. What does that look like? Let me give you an example that was broken down to me that I think will clearly illustrate this.
1 sale at $10,000
2 sales @ $5,000
8 sales @ $1,250
10 sales @ $1,000
20 sales @ $500
Even 100 @ $100
Looking at this breakdown you can see that the large goal now is totally within grasp.
By attacking the number and breaking it down we can create a situation or situations,
that allow YOU to now VISUALIZE this happening! You can now create the picture in your mind’s eye and begin to manifest your goal.
Identifying your goal is the first step. The second step is to Attack the numbers and create a scenario that YOU CAN VISUALIZE happening. Once you have done the first two steps you are ready to to take the next step. This step is really the final step for you to have a FORMULA for SUCCESS, a Blueprint to BUILD YOUR DREAMS!
The third step in this process is a question. Wait… What? A question?
How can a step be a question? Your probably thinking wait a minute here
comes the part where he leaves out the final step and tries to sell it to me.
Absolutely not! The third step is a question YOU have to answer so you can provide the solution to your prospective customers. The final piece of the puzzle is now yours.
Step 3- The Question
Again this question is one that was posed to me by another marketer one that I have mentored with and trained with to be able to apply these principles in my business as well as pass them along to others just like you!
Here is what you should be asking yourself: What do I need to offer that would cause someone to HAPPILY and GLADLY give me (X) amount of dollars?
Once you can answer the question in step 3 you can now become a POWERHOUSE!
With a combination of Step 1-Identifying your goal, Step 2- Attacking the Numbers, and Step 3- Asking a question you now have all of the elements to go reach your goal!
