An Action Plan Is Needed To Achieve Success

You cannot achieve success without an action plan.  Our dreams and visions are only one step in the process. In order to create what you want, you must build a solid foundation, a business and personal roadmap to success.

The first step is to start an assessment. Go through the reflections and projections. Look at what worked well last year. Equally, you need to look at what didn’t work and what you want to accomplish. Then forecast and decide on a course.

With most working or budding entrepreneurs, or people who are straddling, they do not see their own accomplishments. Here is a powerful exercise to help validate your accomplishments:  write down 100 things that you did in your life.  I recommend that you give yourself credit for even the small things.  This will help you forecast your future.

The second step is to upgrade your associations. You need to be around people who have already succeeded at what you want to accomplish. You are the average of the five people you hang around with. Good, bad or indifferent, if you are the smartest person in the room, find another room. You will not learn anything, and people will continue to drain from you. Importantly, be around people who believe in you.  You want to be around people who will encourage and support you when you are down because we all know as entrepreneurs there are a lot of challenges, ups and downs.

So, establish assessments, reflections and projections, upgrade your associations, and then go ahead and create your plan.

The third step is to invest in your future. Create a winning business and personal plan. Left to your own design most people would plan a future that resembles their past. From my experience to get to a level of success, it is critical to: shift into positive thinking, unlearn old, unwanted patterns, create language filters, eliminate the dream stealers, maintain positive relationships, create action steps, master your goals and stay accountable.

Goal Setting is a powerful practice needed to create the ideal blueprint to achieve success in your life. Remember goal setting isn’t just about improving your golf game. It is about getting some fundamental steps in place so that you can be ready to start your new venture in a way that will be viable, sustainable, and fit within your lifestyle. The bottom line is, if you don’t know where you’re going, you’ll never know if you got there.

Some keys things to remember about goal setting is that they must be written down. Planning and goal setting are not enough – you must take action. Remember: We become what we think about.
