Dan Lier: #1 Las Vegas Motivational Speaker
Well first of all, Happy New Year! I hope you’ve come out of the gates strong and full of confidence. I kicked off my 2017 in Palm Beach, FL at the PGA National Resort, where I performed a customized keynote for a national kick-off meeting. It was a great way to start.
This week I have four events in four cities… followed by two more events toward the end of the month. Seven paid Events this month. It’s the best January I’ve had in my career. Now the key is, how do I keep it going?
Now, Here’s what just happened, many of us set our goals for 2017, those of you that didn’t… what’s going on? If you knew that setting goals would increase your chance of progress and success, would you do it? Of course you would.
After setting my goals for 2017, I felt excitement, I was focused and full of confidence. The reason I’m sharing this with you is that others have told me they’ve felt the same way I did, focused, excited and full of confidence…, yet by 3 or 4 months into the new year, they’ve lost their fire. They lost sight of what they put together for the New Year. Can you relate with that?
Well today’s success track is what I call the 12x Achievement Model. Simple concept I adapted from a conversation I had with Brian Tracy. Brian told me if you wrote down your goals once per month, you had a 12x more chance of hitting them. He also said if you wrote them down once a week, you’d have a 52x chance of hitting your goals. Made sense to me, as consistency always leads to success. So I took the monthly idea and morphed it into 12x Your Goals… and here’s how it works for me.
I do a goal setting session every New Years Day. This year, our whole family did it together. Like I said, when I was finished with setting my new years goals, I was excited, focused and full of confidence. Knowing that having obstacles and setbacks along the way, it’s natural to lose a bit of your fire. So here’s what I do to counter that natural human behavior trait to adapt to it’s surroundings… I re-visit my original New Years goals on or around the 1st of every month. I re-look at them, and most importantly, I make adjustments.
What lowers our self-esteem as humans, is to not follow through or achieve what you set out to do… yet creating a plan for success is one of the most empowering human actions. So by adjusting my goals to create progress and move toward success re-ignites that feeling I had on New Years Day. Excited, Focused and confident. And then I start a new month feeling fresh and excited. Give it a shot.
The 12x Achievement Model has worked for me for years and I’m confident it will work for you.
Make this month a month you build momentum for more great months to come.Share...
