You Know You Want Financial Freedom…But Why Aren’t You There Yet? Here’s One Simple Tactic You May Have Overlooked

It’s amazing how many people wish for financial freedom; practically everyone. However, the people who take action are the ones who consistently do something every day to change their circumstances. If you’re reading this, you’re someone who is taking action. I once heard a great quote that stated, “Dreams without action remain dreams, but action without a plan becomes a nightmare.”

Simply stated, you need a plan for your financial freedom and you need to write it down. There are plenty of business opportunities in the network marketing realm to make a lucrative income, but if you don’t set some sort of standard or benchmark, you will never be able to find the freedom you desire.

Network marketing is an amazing money making opportunity, but there’s no way to succeed without laying down your plans. I’m talking about differentiating between short term and long term goals. What’s the difference? Long term goals are the goals that you want to achieve in five to ten years. Short term goals are the goals that you want to achieve on a daily, weekly or monthly basis. Some people have different definitions as to what constitutes a long or short term goal, but we’ll stick to these numbers to keep it basic.

It’s not enough to say,” I want to be financially free” or “I want to make six figures.” In order to set a proper goal, be as specific as possible and put numbers into it. For example, “I want to be financially free in ten years” or “I want my child’s college paid for no matter where they go.” These are two solid examples of long term goals. Notice there are numbers involved for financial independence and multiple options available to your child’s choice for college.

Now, let’s define your short term goals. A few good examples are, “I am going to write a high quality article everyday” or “I’m going to call 10-15 leads every week.” Again, numbers are involved, time spans are implemented and therefore the goals are more realistic.

Defining these two types of goals will create momentum in your business activity. By completing your short term goals, you get a step closer to your long term goals. Your long term goals give you a reason to complete your short term goals. They complement each other and help you achieve more without becoming overwhelmed.

Now that you know what your goals are, it’s time to write them down. Put your goals on a piece of paper and place it where you will see it every single day. Every night, write down your goals for the next day so you can approach the next day with a purpose. It may sound tedious at first, but you will soon realize how valuable this practice is.

Goal setting is just as essential as developing a craft. Building your business needs a realistic vision with attainable goals. Start writing down your goals today and watch your business elevate to a new level.
