Goal Setting – How to Get The Right Kind Of Focus To Achieve Your Goals In 2015

We are now On the SECOND week of the YEAR, and most of us have done some work  on what we want this year, some goal setting work, or at the very least a LIST of things  we want to achieve for 2015.

And  a Lot of Us… Are still wondering what it is that we want to accomplish, What it is we want to achieve, What is it we really want…
Meaning We are really taking our time to make sure that our Year finishes better then the Year before…

I am one of those people that is taking their time, to get really clear on what I need to accomplish this Year…

I’m taking my time to make sure that what I focus on this year, it’s what I need to focus on , and that my time and my focused energy goes in to what is important and fulfilling…

The year 2014 was a very challenging one in terms of my Goals…

Even though I got a lot accomplished, even though A Lot Got Done, and there was a lot of good reward…

I still felt  like it wasn’t enough, it wasn’t what I was looking for…

Or what subconsciously I was looking for…

It felt dry, It felt that a lot of the focus went in to the wrong things…

Creating a feeling of un-fulfillment and void…

Now looking back, I now Know that it was because I did not have a real plan for the goals I wanted to accomplished for the year…

I began the year with a wish list, and Unclear expectations on my goals.

I made the mistake of following the cheap advise we get every January…

Set your New Year Resolutions….

However, this time around I want to make sure I know What I Want and I know What I will get by Achieving my Goals…

Reasons, Feelings, and all…

Here is my Goal Setting List for the 2015

 Mindset:

This is going to be one of my most important ones that I will have to focus on constantly…

looking back on my 2014 goals this was week…

I allowed myself be persuaded by problems, and by the negative consciousness of my surroundings…

Going through some personal development programs, old programs that I had listened to before, I made this distinction yet again ” We Really Are Who We Think about all the time” so if our mind is focus on problems then that’s what will feel, That’s what will become a person who is constantly in trouble and stressed.

So it is very important I keep myself away from thinking to much on thing that appear to be urgent and important and develop Technics to bounce back in the flow of things…

So mindset is very important…

Not Only it will give you a better outlook on life but also will allow you to access positive resources, that will help you in overcoming challenges….

so pretty cool goal to have, To overcome Programming that Does NOT Serve ME…

Here’s a List of areas I want to Improve So I have the best mindset to Making my 2015 My BEST….

  • Negative un-resourcefull beliefs: I have a habit of not knowing what to do all of the time and sometimes this thought would zap out most of my creative energy that can be use for useful things like making progress on my goals.  So learning to get rid of them or become aware before they sabotage my confident, is key to move forward.
  • Achieve Happiness: This can be a difficult one, because is a very allusive emotion but but to clarify what I mean is that I want to be at least 80% of everyday, in a state of kindness towards others and make someone else day better…
    so I get the feeling of achieving kindness in my work day…
    Be aware of negative emotions like anger, frustration and worry and focus immediately on my happiness outcome.
  • Relax: I want to have some time not necessary a lot but some to relax, reflect, and see how I’m doing on my goals as make progress or not, and change direction if needed.
  • Read a Book: I want to read one book a month that is my goal, but some of the books I’m looking to read are pretty big, over seven hundred pages some of them… but I will get them done. It’s important I do that to keep growing and to keep learning.
  • Listen to Motivational Audios every day.
  • Breath or Take a nap when Possible I guess this one kind falls on the Relaxation goal, but is important to keep up a healthy mind if I want to achieve the success I’m looking to accomplish in 2015

Like I said, This is the most important area to keep Sharp and healthy.

Financial:

I have a few business That I’m working on, and in the past working on all of them at the same time has cause stress and unclear focus and minimal success in all of them.

This time around, I feel I got a good plan to make everyone of them work, by dividing the time I give to them, and keep the priorities in check.

I will Grow My Cleaning Business, we do Office Cleaning In Vancouver, So the  First think I need to do is to bring the business To the level where it can run by itself, with a great team, great Employees, awesome management…
Having a great team will help me not only on my Cleaning Business, but will help me achieve my goals on my other business as well.

So Focusing on building a great team that will help me no only run my cleaning business but also my other business is definitely a MUST.

Secondly I will build and increase revenue by at least or no less the $1000 a day at the Laundromat…
If the right team is in place and we have achieved success on my cleaning business then focusing on the laundromat will be the next big goal I must focus on.

Thirdly The Restaurant… right now my my restaurant is doing really well, however I feel that I could do much better if I configure it to work differently a

I want to convert it in to a take out only restaurant, the place is to small for it to be run as restaurant…

The way it is set up right now will not work long-term…

As a Take out place I would be able to serve more people faster and there will be enough space for those who want to stay and eat in.

Forth…. The RIA MONEY SENDING Service, this is an extra service we provide at the Laundromat, and its pretty straight forward people come in send money to love ones abroad…

However a lot of my current customer are Hispanics…

What I want to do is build it to where people Hispanic or Not can come to my store,  chose my store to do their money transfer…

my tentative plan right now is to build a website which I will Rank on the Search Engines So when People are Looking for a place to send money from They’ll see my store first before anybody else…

I will be their first choice…

These are Just some of the Things I want to focus on This Year….

All of my other goals kind of merge with these TWO areas…

For example:
I want to travel more this year… Well if my Finances aren’t there is not going to happen. If my Business are not running well… Is not going to happen.

I’d Love to attend a Tony Robbins event, but if my time isn’t there because my time is being used somewhere else then it will not happen Right…

That’s Why that is Critical I keep a Healthy and Sharp mindset as I go through my 2015.

How Will I make my Goal Setting More effective and Focused on 2015…

Basically by monitoring my thoughts and Visualizing…

And Not get caught up on the challenges of the moment…

If I feel that I’m caught up on problems…. I got to Stop myself and visualize  myself at the end of the year…

(I found this hack by accident… and it seems to really work…)

When I look at myself in the future I DON’T see myself having a problem there are no problems in my future…

I see myself as successful and I see myself As Someone Who has Realized His Goals for the Year…

I see myself as the happy and fulfilled person I am and more.

One more thing I have done as well to help myself visualize and use this Hack…
I bought myself a wall calender of the whole year, so when a problem rises…

I look at the calender I look at the day when the problem is happening…  And then I go to the last day of the month and of the Year and ask myself where is the problem now…best goal setting

Doing this gets me a much better state and I Trouble shoot the problem better…

You should Try it…

 

So this is one of the Hacks I will use throughout the year…

and as I study more I will implement more that serve me and my purpose and share them here…

I realize that this Goal Setting Thing is really an art and is not just writing new year resolutions but learning more about who you are and Grow…

So Thanks For Reading…
