Affirmation: “If you do what you've always done, you'll get what you've always gotten.” - Tony Robbins
Many ambitious people get stuck in the rut of life, repeating behaviors that feel comfortable then wonder why they aren’t progressing. In order to make progress, you must get uncomfortable. Getting uncomfortable doesn’t mean being reckless. It means deliberately getting outside your comfort zone starting with goal setting.
Goal setting is critical to achieving success in your career. If you aren’t setting and working toward those goals, you aren’t in control of your destiny.
To achieve optimum success, you must set short and long term goals. In order to set short term goals, you must first consider your long-term aspirations:
1) Where do you see yourself in five years?
2) What type of work do you want to be doing?
3) What type of people do you want to be working with? Working for?
4) From where do you want to be working?
5) How do you want to feel at the end of your work day?
Answering these questions can begin to bring clarity about your long-term professional goals. Once you have thought through these questions, you will determine your course of action.
What do you need to do today to ensure that you will achieve your goals? What do you need to do next week? Next month? Over the next six months? Over the next two years?
If you want a major change in your career, you’re going to have to do things differently. In order to break through the cycle of repetition, you’re going to have to get uncomfortable. Goal setting and action planning is a safe way to begin making the uncomfortable comfortable so that you can get what you’ve always wanted.
