So how do you set goals that will be achievable, and will make your network marketing business grow by leaps and bounds?
There are a few things that are required to ensure that your goals will be met by you. It really consists of making it as easy on you to achieve these goals.
First off, goals MUST be written. If your goals aren’t written on paper, then they’re actually not goals, but simply just wishes or dreams. You wish and dream in your head, but you create goals on paper.
But just writing something down vaguely of what you want isn’t even close to enough. You have to be extremely specific. So basically instead of saying, “I want a bigger downline in 2010”, instead say “I want to add 336 new people to my downline this year”. That’s a specific goal, and what will happen internally is that your brain will go to work, and instruct your body to move toward that goal. It’s amazing how it happens.
Now don’t think that you’re just going to set a goal, and make it for “this year” or “2010”. No way, that’s not even close to good enough. You MUST set a DEADLINE. Deadlines are amazing little creatures, and if not for deadlines, the entire world would likely be a much more unproductive place. Deadlines make the world go round.
So set a date for your goal to be achieved. Now a lot of people are afraid of setting deadlines simply because they’re afraid that if they set a deadline, they may not hit the deadline and therefore feel like they’ve failed. It’s called fear of failure.
But here’s the secret. If you set a deadline and work toward that date… even if that date gets here and you haven’t fully reached the goals that you’ve set for your network marketing business…you’re still so far beyond where you were when you started (if you’ve been consistently following a plan of action) that you can’t possibly think of yourself as nothing besides a great winner. You’ll feel so motivated that you’ve gotten this close to your goal, that you’ll have no choice but to keep pushing and striving.
Let’s put it this way, if you’re goal was to make $1 Million Dollars by June 29th, 2010, and on June 29th you’ve only made $900,000, will you truly be that terribly upset at yourself? I don’t think so.
The next step is to create a plan of action for achieving your goal. Here’s the best way to do that…
If you truly want to meet your goals for your network marketing business, then you’ve got to know exactly what that goal is, and work backwards from that goal.
Here’s what that means. Keeping with the growing your network marketing organization goal by 336, and you have a time frame of 1 year let’s say, then you’ll want to divide that goal by 12, which will tell you how many new people you’ll have sponsor each month. Then break that down by week, and then by day.
What this does is give you smaller bite sized chunks to go after, and eat the elephant one bite at a time.
Alright, so there you have it.

Remember this quote; “If your ship doesn’t come in, swim out to meet it.”
And…Be the best you can be….every day!
