Your Best Year Ever: A 5-Step Plan for Achieving Your Most Important Goal
Michael S. Hyatt
1. The intricacies of goals and resolutions
Your life doesn’t revolve around a single aspect of your life.
10 major domains determine who we are:
2. Beliefs are the bedrocks of our reality
As a man thinketh, so he is.
Victory at all costs, victory in spite of all terror, victory however long and hard the road may be; for without victory, there is no survival.
The fake lifestyles that people often post on social media could plant the seed of self-doubt and envy.
You can choose to remold your thoughts and see through the imaginary obstacles that have subjected you to an ordinary existence.
3. To change your life, you must work toward upgrading your beliefs
Be sure you put your feet in the right place, then stand firm.
Do not let perceived resource deficiency stop you from pursuing great opportunities that come your way.
A. Identify those limiting beliefs and make sure you record them.
B. Once you have recorded them, the next step is to review the beliefs and their impacts on your life.
C. Reframe or reject them.
D. Start revising these beliefs to fit a more affirmative and empowering model.
4. The past has an impact on your future
Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards.
A more potent way of going about this requires that you clearly state or write down your projected goals for the last year.
You should acknowledge all the factors that could have contributed to your success or failure and learn from them.
Lastly, adjust the behavior and beliefs that stalled your personal growth.
While you are exploring your regrets, do not sideline gratitude.
5. Lay the building bricks for a fantastic future by setting reasonable goals
A study revealed that simply writing down goals could boost the chances of success by a massive 42%.
● Specific: The viability of your goals depends on how clear they are.
● Measurable: Before choosing your goals, you should ascertain that they are measurable, that there is a way you can assess your progress.
● Actionable: While indicating the specifics of your goals, you should outline the actions and tasks they entail.
● Risky: People who play it safe would most likely remain in mediocrity. Although it is good to adopt realistic goals, taking risks would prevent you from setting the bar too low.
● Time-keyed: The chances of achieving a goal with no apparent deadline are bleak. While choosing your goals, you should attach deadlines, time triggers, or frequencies that would keep you on your toes.
● Exciting: You cannot resist resolutions and goals if you do not find them interesting.
● Relevant: Your goals must correlate with your lifestyle and current circumstances.
6. You can counter the pressure to quit with intrinsic and external motivation
When you face a solid reason to quit, you should counter it with one or two reasons that would remind you of the emotional and intellectual arguments backing your goal.
Your society, religion, and family fall under the external motivation category. In contrast, ambition, hope, and values fit nicely into the intrinsic category. Design your motivation in a way that finds a balance between these two variations of influences to make it effective.
Unlike the intrinsically influenced motivations, motivations that emanate from external sources alone are not long-lasting.
You should master your motivations by visualizing your end reward whenever you are stuck with self-doubt.
You must choose goals that you can measure. By doing so, you can use your incremental progress as a reminder that you have come a long way, and that alone could motivate you to fight the urge to quit.
More importantly, it is okay to recruit help by choosing friends who would acknowledge your quest, motivate you, and call you to order when you seem to lose your way.
7. Do not forget to walk the talk
The small wins you get from the simplest tasks on your list will keep you going when things get tough.
Incorporate “Activation Trigger”
• Take a timeout to brainstorm the appropriate catalyst for different scenarios.
• • Tweak these triggers to conform to the uniqueness of your lifestyle or goal requirements.
• You should anticipate obstacles that could undermine your triggers and determine responses to help you sidestep them.
• • Experiment with various triggers until you find the one that works for you.
To make this approach more viable, you should constantly review your goals, apparent progress, motivations, and failures. You should do this daily, weekly, and quarterly.
Practice Lessons from Your Best Year Ever Book
• Choose goals that excite you, ones that resonate with your lifestyle.
• • Be sure to choose deadlines that challenge you but that are still within reach.
• Pick a goal that helps you move closer towards the ultimate aim you have for your life: small milestones will help you get there.
