In a recent video on Entrepreneur.com, the Chairman, and CEO of Brian Tracy International, Brian Tracy gave valuable insight into how focus plays a huge part in achieving goals. At Prosure Acquisitions, we find goal setting and focus to be crucial in any representatives success. “In order to achieve a goal, we advise that workers write down and focus in on what they see for themselves on a monthly basis,” says Huw Roberts Harry, Managing Director of Prosure Acquisitions. It’s important to note that everyone needs a goal setting technique. We make goals every year. “For example, weight loss, saving money to buy expensive things, saving money for vacation and maybe just making yourself better throughout the year. These are some common goals many people have in mind but they never actually do anything about it — which makes it difficult for the goal to be reached,” says Huw Roberts Harry of Prosure Acquisitions.
This is where Brian Tracy suggests writing down your goals and the different ways to accomplish them. Think about the time limit you have and how much money you need and other questions such as those that will help you narrow down and focus in on a strategic way to reach it. Tracy gives an example of two different people with the same goal. Their goal is to take a vacation for Summer 2017. The first person writes down their goal and ways to achieve it. They cut back spending and end up saving almost $300 a month till Summer, which leaves enough for a comfortable stay at a tropical location. The second person has the same goal for Summer 2017, however, they don’t write down what they need to do and they are all over the place when it comes to implementing their strategy. Not only have they lost focus but they will not have enough for a vacation type of stay when Summer comes around.
“This is the clear difference between why it’s important to set goals and implement them through strategy. They do help in the long run and this is something we suggest all individuals do all the time,” says Huw Roberts Harry of Prosure Acquisitions. On a final note, we suggest writing down a goal you want to accomplish and a bullet point or numbered strategy of how to accomplish it. This is a great way to keep track of your goal and have it in your mind. Also, make sure to ask questions all the time and envision an idea of your planned destination or goal. Keeping all these in mind will help you reach your goal in no time.
