If you look at the success formula, we teach in 30X Life, we go through the formula for success, DREAM X GOAL X LEARN X PLAN X ACT. What a goal ultimately leads to is learning. So you need to write down your goals in order to determine what you need to learn to make that goal a reality. How do you need to grow in order to achieve your goals? I’ve often told the story about how when I was a young man, I set the goal for being able to retire at 25. People have lectured me about how that goal of mine wasn’t possible. And technically they were right… the 16-year-old version of myself at the time could not achieve that goal. However, can the person that I was willing to grow into achieve that? That’s the question I had to ask myself.
Think about the biggest goal you have right now. What do you need to learn to do that? What beliefs do you need to change? How do you need to change your behaviors? The person you are when you set the goal is incapable of achieving the goal. If you could have achieved it, you already would have. Something has to shift in order for you to get that being that it is your knowledge, beliefs, behaviors, or skillset. Your goals need growth.
If you want to start bringing your goals to reality then you need to start building the habit of writing them down. Grab a journal and start forming the areas of your life that you want to focus on. It is important to have multiple areas that you want to improve in, or you’ll end up being skewed to that one area. That’s the reason why many businesspeople end up letting their businesses take over their lives. They don’t have goals in other areas of their life such as hobbies, their families, or health and fitness.
Learn Before You Earn
Learn before you earn is a simple philosophy. The more you want to earn, the more you’ve got to learn. Continue reading and learning so that you will grow into all the goals that you set for yourself. Give yourself enough room to grow into your goals.
