Think Payoff When It Comes To Achievement

Think Payoff When It Comes To Achievement.

Goal setting involves a vision. Think the end result when you start out. But the "more" important element in achievement is


How bad do you want it? I would venture to say if you want it bad enough, you WILL achieve it. Think payoff. The big WHY you're doing something. VERY IMPORTANT.

In business or in personal life and even sports there are many examples. Tiger Woods has a coach and practices constantly. The big WHY? He hoists that trophy in the U.S. Open in an overtime win. You have a goal and commitment to not work Sundays in your business. Why? Time with the kids or grandkids at the park or taking in a movie. Do you sense the wanting it BAD!! You spend hours and days on your diet and conditioning. Why? Here comes summer. Look at those rock hard abs as a guy. As a woman you fit into that great looking bathing suit with your new body. You want to achieve a certain number of houses sold this year to take that trip with the extra income for your family. On and on it goes.

See, the PAYOFF and the sacrifice and hard work you put in along the journey will certainly be worth it. Remember if you don't understand the big why, or are not achieving what you want, it mostly comes down to you don't really want it bad enough. Work on that strong desire in you consistent with what you value. Be able to almost TASTE where you are headed. Afterall you will get there. Why? You really want it bad enough. See you at the mountaintop. I'll race you <Smile>.

I always ask, "How does this benefit me?" or "What am I going to accomplish by doing this?"  Sometimes, the big picture isn't that great, but mostly it is.

I have a great "big picture" to aim for but, I must admit sometimes hurdles get me down.  Thanks for the reminder to want it a little more and work a little harder to get there.

Hi Gary,  Thank You for your encouragement, insight and inspiration!  Since I have been finishing up my doctorate the past three months, I can completely relate to your post!  We must conquer chaos and move mountains by faith and a DEEP DESIRE by daring to dream and do it!!!

Now you sound like my Sweathogs trainer, Shelly Spiegel. We had to bring in a picture of something we really wanted badly. Then we had to put it in a very conspicuous place, like on our keychain. Not a small picture mind you. He wanted us to look at it all the time.

Did you take Sweathogs? LOL. Yet another great post from my Life Coach. Thank you!

I wrote a class about "the big why" once and worked really hard on it, but the majority of the class did not get it.

As long as I have something to look forward to I'm happy.  Right now, I look forward to Tiger coming to my town for the Canadian Open in July.

It will be a "happenin' place"

Hi gary, I think the big question here is "How bad do you want it?", just like you asked.  You must have a vision and everyday you must work towards your goal.  If you lose sight of that goal, you must get refocused and get back on task.

People often give up on the path to success when they experience failure of some sort. What they don't understand is failure is a stepping stone to success. If they were to continue plugging away, they would get there.

Goal-setting in this real estate market can be tough, but it still needs to be done. It also has to be realistic, so there won't be major disappointment if it goes unmet.

Gary - Great Post.  I always attach a visual to my goals.  When I start a diet, I will hang a cute little dress that no longer fits me in my bathroom above the scale as a reminder of my goal.  In business, I remind myself constantly of the reward that will come with each goal I reach in 5-10k increments, as I always make a point to treat myself each time I get paid or at least every other pay-check.
