Make monthly resolutions as you make yearly rsolutions


Like many people, I love making new resolutions. Today is the first day of a new month. Isn’t it exciting to make a new resolution for a month?
But when I first thought of a monthly resolution my mind rejected it. One month, only one month what could i achieve in one month. I set a goal of losing weight of 10-12 pounds, year after year without ever achieving it.
How is it possible to do it in one month?
My dream list includes the purchase of a new home, a new car; it includes exotic vacations with my family. My dream list also includes substantial built of a portfolio in paper assets; it also includes completing my first book. It also includes running ultra-marathon. There are career-related dreams. All these long term dreams would take at least many months together if not years, hence it does not count a month. This was my thinking earlier but now, when I set daily goals, a month provides me with an opportunity to 30 times more than my daily time available to work on my dreams.
 There is only one way I could achieve my big dreams and that is daily action to achieve those big dreams.
Now, let me give you an example of reading books, one of my year’s resolutions was to read 50 books. So, monthly it comes to at least 4 books a month. Similarly, all big dreams depend on my monthly goals and ultimately my daily goals.
If I want to be in top 10 per cent of sales people I must be aware of the fact, how many sales call I need to make daily and I must make those daily calls to achieve my yearly targets.
This is applicable to every walk of life. If I think I can rest 15 days of the month and can do entire month work in the rest 15 days. It is not going to work.
These monthly, weekly and daily goals are doing wonders for me and it has completely changed my life. With my experience and with the experience of other successful people I can say this helps in keeping the focus on the goals on a daily basis.
Therefore, you must make monthly goals and work on them. it will make you excited and keep you on the right track.
I will love to hear from you.
Keep Growing.

Have Single-Minded devotion To Your Goal

To succeed in your mission, you must have single-minded devotion to your goals.                                                                                                A.P.J. Abdul Kalam
Once you are clear about your dream, you can make it your goal.
How can you make your dream your goal?
When it comes to goal setting, it should be divided into short term goals and long term goals. There is no such categorization which goals can be short term goals and which can be long term goals. You can keep those goals under short term which can be achieved in one year. Long term goals are your dreams. The goals that you want to achieve 2 years down the line or 5 years, 10 years or 20 years down the line. Goals like owning a beautiful house with beautiful garden having swimming pool, at calm or serene place, plenty of space to play with children and spouse, owning fleet of luxurious cars, owning stud farms, exotic vacation, optimum health, financial freedom, time to pursue recreation activiti…

Be aware of your dreams and Goals

Hi, my name is Kumar. I am working on a mission to help people realize their true potential and live their dream life. Yesterday, I was with a group of 5 young executives, who was working for the last 5 years in one of the reputed banks of this country. I asked them, “Do you know what the difference between dreams and goals is?” Surprisingly, they answered in negative. They are among the top 10 per cent of the population when it comes to earning. I know they are hardworking and bright and in a couple of years, they will be handling important assignments like in-charge of the branch. So, I was expecting them to know regarding dreams and goals. But when they could not answer, I remember what Brain Tracy once said, “Most people fail to set goals, because they do not know.” Today we are living beyond the information age where we are bombarded with information. So, it is easier to access this kind of information. Probably, the flip side of it is it has made these things complicated. However…

Take action for your dream

There are several traits which take to be successful in life. You need to have dreams and goals. You need to have a plan to achieve those goals. There are people who have a positive attitude, positive thinking, a burning desire, clarity of goals, and the entire essential ingredients required to be successful in life. However, they are not where they want to be and doing what they should be doing.  Then what is that mission link? The missing link is the effort. The effort made on a consistent basis.
         Jim Rohn, a famous motivation speaker and author, says “Affirmation without discipline is an illusion.”
       If you have everything but you do not have self-discipline, your dreams and goals will go away from you. This lack of action will not produce the desired result, resulting in discouragement and depletion of self-confidence.
