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.

This one thing can make you rich and prosperous

The other day while interacting with one of the young officers of a corporate world an interesting incident happened. It is not uncommon that I meet many people in the job who show a keen interest in entrepreneurship. They want to become an entrepreneur but for the one or the other reason, they don’t venture into business. So, this young fellow told me that he had many good ideas for business. Then I could remember that I met some of the brightest men or women who were doing very well in their job and they wanted to start their own ventures. Most of them told me that they had many good ideas. Probably, this is the problem. People having many ideas landed in not working in any of the idea. As Napolean Hill writes in his book think and grow rich that ‘one sound idea is all one needs to achieve success.’   I always emphasis getting success is simple. This I could learn and realize after I underwent many failures in life, though these failures helped to become successful. What one needs is…

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…

Sometimes, these learning which is supposed to help us achieve greater heights in life, but on the other hand, these causes hindrance, probably, one of the reasons may be while learning we learn many things which are negative learning that causes doubts in mind.

We must keep in mind the process and act through which we master the things is simple. If we make the laws and process of life simple, it would be easy to live a simple life and achieve more in life.
