How To Reach Your Big Goals
How to Reach Goals.
Coach Mobley’s Secrets to Reaching Your Biggest Goals. Guaranteed!
I received a call early this morning from a person I’d met briefly before through one of my really good friends.
The first thing this friend-of-a-friend says to me is:
“I’ve got all of my goals for the next year locked and loaded to go. It’s going to be a great year!”
This wasn’t my first rodeo, so after thinking for a moment I replied:
“You’ve got all your goals for the next year written down?”
She quickly said: “Yes. And they are big goals just as I heard you suggest on your radio show. If I achieve them, I will be living my best life!”
She added, “[Our mutual friend] told me that you coach him and he and his family are happier and more successful than ever. Will you coach me?”
I told her, “I’m happy to work with you. And it’s great that you have written your big goals down now so that you’re ready to start the New Year on fire. But, first, I have a few questions for you.”
“Have you set a specific time frame for the accomplishment of each of your goals, including each key step?”
“Is each goal really detailed? Not general?”
“Can you measure the progress you make towards each goal, step-by-step as you move along?”
“Is each goal challenging, but possible for you to achieve?”
“Have you articulated each goal using plain words? No gobbledygook or psychobabble.”
“Have you identified each barrier you will need to overcome in order to reach each goal?”
“Do you know ‘Why’ you want to achieve each goal?”
“Can your goals be represented with numbers?”
“Did you accomplish the goals you set for the previous year?”
I had one more really important question to ask her – the key to reaching goal after goal after goal – but I decided asking it would be premature. Instead, based on her answers to my questions, I had to tell her the truth:
“You are unlikely to accomplish the goals you have set for the next year. In your mind, you are ready to go. However, what you’ve done so far will not take you to the higher levels you seek.”
She was very, very quiet. I then said:
“I’m excited to work with you. Go to http://bit.ly/GoalsToGet and let’s get started.”
My questions & statement to her are what I have to say to many who have approached me to help them reach their major goals.
Reaching a great goal is not supposed to be necessarily “easy” or “fast” or a completely “fun” joyride. Those who think it’s easy have been tricked by the Grinch.
If it was, everyone would do it. The Grinch does not want everyone to be happy and reach their goals.
The truth is that fewer than 3% of people even set real goals. Fewer still ever bother to take the key steps to move beyond the happiness of setting goals and on to the essential actions to actually achieve their goals.
And, thus, at best, they never quite live their best lives, and, at worst, they fail miserably.
Here’s what another person (Kimberly) I spoke with a few days ago said after clicking the link I shared above and having just one conversation with me regarding her goals:
“It was a most wonderful and uplifting experience… to talk one on one with Coach Mobley! I’m inspired to take action… and I know great change is possible! There is so much more Coach Mobley did for me… Thank you so very much with all my heart!! You do such wonderful work to help people help themselves!!!”
Which brings me to the rub:
The next 12 months await.
Let’s get it on:
