The end of this month will mark the end of the first quarter of 2016. How are you doing? Are your goals and desires for your company beginning to feel like new year’s resolutions? Great idea at the time and now you're losing interest? You only have one month to complete your promise for Quarter 1. Howver, all is not lost. There are several options. The number one thing to accomplish is to remove the negative self talk. I bet that every time you think about the target and where you are, you beat yourself up in some way or other. Most of it around I should have…
Getting in action with possibility will begin to alleviate the negative talk. Take a good look at your target. Is there any way possible to meet it? Chunk it down to how many items you need to sell, how many phone calls you need to make to hit it. Evaluate if it’s possible. Maybe the goal you picked was too lofty. If it’s not possible, re-promise a lower target. The key here is to feel good.
What will happen if the goal is unreachable is that you will do one of two things, 1) get overwhelmed and stop or 2) keep going at same pace and just feel bad. Neither of these things will help. Step back and take another look. In order to reach an outlandish goal, you have to be different that the person you have been being. Can you call yourself up to the task and be different? Do you see what it will take? If you can see it, you can make it happen. Usually this involves checking in with yourself and getting reconnected with your why and your higher power.
If you can’t see it, no worries. The idea is for you to feel good. Pick another target and get in action. Just so you know, it is impossible to be in action and feel bad at the same time. You got this.
