How to Choose a Goal You’ll Actually Hit
This week's question from my portal “The Neagle Code: Directions for Life” comes from someone who wishes to remain anonymous.
I’ve set money goals many times and have never hit them. How do I set a money goal I’ll actually hit?
Think about the amount of money you want to earn in your life right now. Go ahead, take a minute to think it over.
For this exercise, I don’t want you to just pull a number out of thin air like “a billion dollars” or something. The number has to mean something to you personally. It has to be relevant to your daily life, your purpose, or what you want your lifestyle to be.
In order to make the money you want, you must know WHY you want that specific number. This is key.
It cannot be arbitrary or random. Nor can it be based on a vague fantasy. The number has to be specific. It has to have meaning.
It cannot be
based in fear.
What’s your number? How much money do you want to make?
Don’t say something like, “Oh, I want to make $500 million a year, so that I never have to worry about money again. Then I could go sit on a beach and drink piña coladas for the rest of my life.” That’s based in fear, not true desire.
Your reason for wanting your number has to be practical, something that can be applied to your life right now.
For example, maybe you want to live a certain lifestyle that requires a lot of money. Maybe you want to help a group of people, give money to charity, feed kids in Africa…build your business to a certain level…buy an amazing house, car, or fly a private jet. All of that requires money. How much is required? And why do you want those particular things?
When you have a real reason behind the amount of money you want to make…you have more motivation for making it happen. (Then you’re not “bullshitting” yourself.)
You can choose to focus on a monthly number, or an annual number, whichever feels best for you. I like to help people think about monthly incomes. Then you can look at the actions you need to take in order to earn that amount each month.
