Success Mastery: The One Thing Most Miss In The Goal Achieving Blueprint

Build Business ProfitsTo achieve your goals in the new year the following should be in place now because if you wait until January you will have lost part of the year. You must be ready out of the gate on January 1.

Steps….the first four are probably not new for you.

Decide now how much money you want to make in 2015

Decide what you are going to do to make that money

Detail the action steps required everyday week and month required…note there is a complete management by statistics process that is part of my coaching process that virtually guarantees successful results when it is followed.

Building Business Profits FastMeasure the key statistics that tell you your progress and variance from plan…ask me about The Gold Formula tm This is also detailed in one chapter of my book Building Business Profits Fast

What Is Missing From This Blueprint?

Here is the most important part of what you need to do that if you do it will virtually skyrocket your success in the new year….

Work On Who You Need To Be To Achieve Your Goals YOU

What do you need to become in order to achieve the goals that you are setting for yourself and your business in the New Year? Seems obvious but few are focused on this point. Will you be well served by:

Being healthier

Having more energy

Increasing your specialized knowledge

Being a better networker, friend, leader

What else – you know what is missing. Confront it!

Remember this: everyone who is successful reaches their goals without one or more mentors or coaches. I have new programs that not only guarantee results but are priced based on those results.

Another reminder from an earlier article on goal setting from  Grant Carbone’s book 10x

Grant expanded my thinking and added fuel to the tank so to speak.  One example will illustrate: Let’s say you have a goal to make $8,000 per month. You take action but fall short by 50%.  So your results are $4,000.

What if you had set your goal at $80,000 and fell short by 50%? I think you see the point.  The related message is with a 10x goal you would be more focused and aggressive with your actions.  Of course there is a lot more to it and I am really happy my coach gave me the assignment to read this book and do all the exercises.

Here is a refresher on the 5 Actions I mentioned in a previous article

5 Actions That Will Improve Your Business and Your Life Today 

Step 1 Clearly define the outcome in measurable terms.

Step 2 Develop a plan of action to achieve the outcome

Step 3 Define milestones for achievement. Often in business those are quarterly and monthly. Quarterly and monthly milestones are not enough. What milestones need to be achieved today to bring you closer to your goal. These milestones or targets need to be measurable.

Step 4 The Gold Formula tm is my simple measurement of monitoring the variances from your actual plan. Actual minus Plan = Variance. The variance is gold because it tells you what to do. You cannot have a variance unless you have a plan and measure actual results against the plan. Today we are graphing key statistics. The graphs tell us the condition and then we are able to apply the formula for success based on the condition. Management by Statistics is the single biggest enhancement for performance in business and life that I have learned.

Step 5 Enjoy the process and continually refine your targets

These five steps are the foundation for how I work and how I coach. They are the reason I can offer my Results Guaranteed Coaching Program By the way I have a coach that holds me accountable and I am very grateful for him.

New Step 6

Who is the person you need to become in order to experience the goals that your are setting? Define and develop a program to enhance and expand those personal attributes.

My Formula For Success Has Expanded

Success Mastery - Setting GoalsIn my last article I detailed 5 Actions That Will Improve Your Business and Your Life Starting Now. That article is posted below for your convenience.  This past weekend I studied Grant Carbone’s book 10x

Grant expanded my thinking and added fuel to the tank so to speak.  One example will illustrate: Let’s say you have a goal to make $8,000 per month. You take action but fall short by 50%.  So your results are $4,000.

What if you had set your goal at $80,000 and fell short by 50%?

How To Achieve Your Goals and Be Happy Along The Way

Most of us have heard the words to the effect “it is about the journey and not the destination”. That can be really challenging to accept when you can clearly see the destination and it seems to be very distant. Here is the key – one step at a time in the direction of your intended outcome with you being passionate about the outcome.

I have a client who has a retail business. He bought this business and he was comfortable with what to do because he had worked in the business for a number of years before having the opportunity to buy it. My job was to help him advance his skills in running a business. The measurement of project success is higher revenue and profits.

Break Up Goals Into StepsWell into the coaching program, he told me he really didn’t like the products that he sold. With that energy or lack of energy he was not doing the fundamental steps of an owner. I asked him that if he sold or closed down this business what would he do. He said another business selling products or services to customers. I then showed him how everything we were working on was needed to be done in any business. I further advised him that the best exist strategy was to strengthen the business results since that is how he would get the best purchase price for the company.

Today his sales are becoming increasing stronger and he has renewed energy for the business. What happened? First he started tracking key statistics. That alone often will result in business increasing. As business began to pick up he began to see new opportunities for creative display and pricing of product. He started spending more time himself with customers and got more ideas. So instead of continuing to spiraling downward, the trends reversed. Today he installing new systems software and implement several important marketing action plans.

The product line didn’t change. What changed was how he viewed the business and what he was learning about running any business that he decided to go into. Actually he is looking to add a new location and add a new product line that will appeal to his existing customer base.

How did he move to being happy about what he was doing? 1. He began to see the opportunities with the business that he had 2. He began following very clear advice and experienced positive results. Where is he on goal achievement? When we started like I do with every client we agreed on what would be the measure of success for the coaching program. Right now as a rate of sales, he is beating that goal.

Intellectual Understanding Does Not Mean You Will Implement 

Another client told me recently  the number one benefit of my program was keeping them focused on what is important.

In my experience people make a lot of progress during coaching and lose momentum if they interrupt the coaching process. For a Free Coaching Consultation Click Here

Trump What Distinguishes My Business and Real Estate Investment Coaching and Consulting Practice From Nearly All Others and Is The Foundation of My Results Guaranteed Coaching Program

Marketing A Celebrity

Celebrity is defined by Mirriam-Webster as a famous and celebrated person. When I think of a celebrity, I feel that person is known by many people with diverse interests. Celebrities I am aware of generally fall into a perceived niche. Oprah for example promotes many different themes. She is a talk show host. Tony Robbins is a self development guide.

What happens when a celebrity who is well known in a specific area decides they are going to make a huge difference on a related but very distinct area of interest? For example, you are probably aware of several actresses who have increased the awareness in society of orphaned children by their posture and by personally adopting one or more of these children. Now they become well known for their personal interests and beliefs.

I have studied in general what several famous people have done outside of the area for which they became famous. I asked the question: by being famous did these people automatically gain acceptance in another area of personal interest? The answer is no. Even though celebrities have a following, when they move out of their arena of fame for them to be successful with their message they and their message needs to be marketed.

As I have worked through the development of a marketing strategy with a celebrity, I quickly realized that my primary mission was to present a plan that most people could understand. The focal point was the same one that I use with all my business clients. That focal point is simply “what is the goal?”. For business development projects the goal is usually defined as a targeted increase in revenue and profits in first 90 days and the establishment of new processes and procedures to sustain that growth rate. For my celebrity client we agreed on a twelve month measurement of success which is a bit of stretch.

Once there is “buy in” on the goal statement that includes a defined time frame for achievement the steps to achieve that goal can be identified and sequenced. This is no different than my advice to business owners which is the goal that you want to achieve three months or twelve months from now is achieved by what you do each day and each week. We set the goal, we define the steps, we measure actual vs. plan and act on the variances. That’s it.

When you do this kind of work, you learn a lot about the person and their support structure. This is true for a business and for a celebrity. It is natural to want to share this information with others and particularly those close to you. You cannot. The two attributes that are most important when working with anyone are credibility and trust. Your credibility comes from the value you are adding now and not from anything you have done prior. Trust is gained by respecting those areas of the lives of the people you are working with that need to remain private. If they choose to become more transparent with anything that is their call. So it is with my celebrity client. If ever my role is disclosed, it won’t be coming from me.

Sending all my readers the energy of vibrant health, happiness and prosperity.

Stop Blaming The Economy..Or Anything Else For That Matter

I was using Comment Kahuna to build some back links recently. One of the most valuable features of this free program is that it surfaces some pretty cool high PR sites. Well one of the top financial market blogs had an article by an educator with all the credentials for teaching at a top B School. The article detailed the statistical difference between profit growth and cash flow growth in 2007. The conclusion was that another indicator was pointing to economic doom and gloom.

My response was that this was a perfect example of information that is likely to be completely accurate and totally useless. This is content designed to fuel negative thinking.

The facts are there are successes all around us and we can find them in any country and any economy. There are also companies in trouble and going out of business in any economy. Personally I have worked with business doing extremely well in a recession and ones on the brink of extinction in a booming economy. What are the key characteristics of success in any economy?

Success companies:

1. Have a very clear definition of their customer base and target market

2. Have clearly established performance goals for the company that are then redefined as goals and action plans for each function within the company.

3. Assign accountability for the action steps required to achieve the goals at the functional level.

4. Measure actual vs. plan on a timetable that makes sense based on what is being monitored. Cash position for example may be monitored daily.

5. Act quickly on variances from positive and negative variances from plan.

That is about it and while there is more detail at http://www.10minutemba.net , these five steps apply to every business and the emphasis is on every.

People fall into two categories. They either manage the business using the above five steps or use excuses like: it is the economy, or the dollar, foreighn competition, I don’t feel like it, I can’t expect them to do their job today; or “we’ll get to it soon” Do you want to find the successful businesses? The next time you meet a person who has makes no excuses, doesn’t complain about external factors and is generally on purpose, ask them what business they are in. I’ll bet it is a very successful one.
