All of these ideas words are from the incredible book “With Winning in Mind” by Lenny Bassham. None of these ideas are my own.
A habit that separates the top five percent of competitors who win from the other 95 percent who just play is the practice of carefully setting goals. Here’s how to do it:
Step 1 – Determine a goal worth trading your life for.
You must be specific. The more you can identify exactly what you want, the better your chances of obtaining it.
Step 2 – Decide when you want it.
Putting a time limit on your goals helps you to formulate a plan to achieve them.
Step 3 – List the pay-value.
List all the reasons that are important to you for achieving the goal. Make certain the goal you set is big enough to change your life. Set a goal big enough to move you to change your habits or attitudes.
Step 4 – Honestly evaluate the obstacles in your way.
