I’m just one millionaire; can’t speak for every other millionaire on the planet. But here’s my take on goal-setting. Real simple.
First, one goal at a time. (Chase two rabbits, catch neither.)
Second, rather than pulling it outta your butt, set it based on energy. As in, what’s gonna give you the most? Something realistic? Or grandiose? Something you can reach in days? Or years? And say you don’t hit it – will you feel defeated? Or that much more motivated? Urrbody’s different. So a one-size-fits-all goal-setting guide makes about as much sense as iPhone X’s “swipe up to open.” (God I miss that home button.)
Finally, try putting pen to paper to discover this goal. Just spill your guts. Whaddya want? Start writing. And do it fast AF. So there’s no time to judge yourself. Fill an entire page if you can. Then look at what you wrote. We want something from the heart, not the head. That sh*t that’ll get you outta bed at 5 am. That you’ll skip Netflix for. I bet it’s buried in there somewhere. When you see it, you’ll know.
For me, this is more effective than throwing out some arbitrary number (“I’ll have my first $500k month”) and random timeline (“within the next 90 days”) that may or may not inspire me and that I may or may not even believe.
