This week's question from my portal “The Neagle Code: Directions for Life” comes from an individual who wishes to remain anonymous.
I seem to hit plateaus in my life. I hit a goal and then have a hard time going to my next goal. Last year I did over $300k but for some reason I get comfortable and want to take it to the next level (7 figures) but am having difficulty turning on the motivation and clarity.
Thanks for this question!
Let me answer your question with a question.
Why do you want to hit that 7 figure mark, and EXACTLY how much money do you WANT?
Remember, that the very first stage in creating the life you want is to make a decision.
The first step is to decide EXACTLY what you want (or better).
Your decision should be based on something you're emotionally tied to, something specific you want, and that really pushes you to “feel” your goal.
For example, Joe wants $500,000.00 by September 23rd so that he can buy the house at 567 Random Way, and move closer to his children, so that he can take a more active role in their lives.
Joe is emotionally tied to the money he needs because it will allow him to be closer to his children.
He's made the decision and he's emotionally connected to it. The emotional connection gives Joe a sense of urgency to attain his goal. He knows that the longer he takes to hit his goal, the less time he gets to spend with his children.
This sense of urgency keeps pushing him forward.
What is your sense of urgency to hit the 7 figure mark? What's going to get you out of bed in the morning to do what you need to do to hit that goal?
I have seen many entrepreneurs choose a financial goal out of thin air, and then can't understand why they have never been able to hit that goal.
They don't hit the goal because they are not emotionally connected to it, and there isn't a sense of urgency behind it.
There goals were wishy-washy.
For any entrepreneur reading this, ask yourself the following 3 questions:
1) What exactly do I want? (Make a list and attach a dollar amount to everything on it)
2) Why do I want this? (Be very honest about this)
3) What happens if I don't meet this goal? (This will help you determine how strong your sense of urgency is)
Once you've answered this question, expect to hit the goal, and take action toward this goal EVERYDAY!
