The 5 Magic Steps

Five Magic Steps to Achieving Your Goals

As well as using your SMARTIES Goal Card and checking in with your goals daily, there are five magic steps which you must follow to link your goals, intention, and purpose, with the power to realise them. The power lives within you and through alignment you can achieve anything you set your mind to.

1. Know exactly where you are right now.

That is, where you are financially? To achieve this, you will have to do a realistic bottom-line statement: this is what I have in cash and assets; this is what I owe; this is how much my income is.

This is an essential process, and most people think they can skip this point and not worry about it.

You must take an inventory of your values and your internal strengths and weaknesses. You must increase your strengths and manage your weaknesses. You must gather around you people who can take care of the things that you are not so good at—a coach or mentor or accountant— whoever it is you need to have around you to have you be successful.

2. Focus on a specific intention.

Intentions are very much a step up from goals as goals are often fuelled by fear.

People tend to do things based on fear, but with intention you do things based on careful consideration, and there is a sense of purpose about what you are up to. So with clear intentions, clear goals and plans follow.

3. Have a specific game plan to deliver your intentions.

This is a step-by-step process. For instance, you could have an intention to be a millionaire in seven years.

Your specific game plan will give you a program where you spend six hours a week for the next six months learning and studying through seminars, workshops, books etc. on basic investment knowledge.

4. Use vision and your creative spirit through your imagination to create ideas and to design your life.

Most people work too hard to make a living. You need five minutes each day for quiet visualisation, to imagine and reinvent yourself so that you have an empowering life.

Ask yourself, ‘What am I grateful for?’, ‘Who loves me?’, ‘Who do I love?’ and ‘What is my purpose?’

Get creative and use let your imagination run wild with possibilities. The subconscious mind knows no bounds so have fun designing your perfect life!

5. Take massive action about your intention and goals.

Make yourself take at least one small step each day towards your outcome, no matter how small the step.

At the end of the day you must ask the power questions, ‘What did I achieve today?’ and ‘How much closer to my goal am I?’
