“The person who makes a success of living is the one who sees his goal steadily and aims for it unswervingly. That is dedication.” – Cecil B. DeMille  
Are you dedicated to your principle targets? 
Do you stay focused on them until you reach your goals or do you get sidetracked by something else?
Many of the students I work with come to me because they tend to get sidetracked in one way or another.  This happens when they see a new opportunity, a new program to help them, their job, their relationships, etc.  The list can go on and on for many.  I call this being shiny-balled.  When the shiny ball pops up, it distracts you from the goal you had previously set.  
Ever happened to you?  I know it has happened to me.
Here are a few of tips on how to keep you on the steady path toward your goal:
  • Post your principle targets (goals) in in at least one very visible spot for you to see as you go through your day.  This could be on a white board in your office, on your screen saver on your computer, a printed copy on your mirror to look at every morning, etc.  
  • Continually ask yourself throughout the day is the action you are taking now moving you closer to or further away from your principle targets.
  • Use a calendar to schedule blocks of time for specific action steps which are focused on your goals to occur in your day.
  • Have an accountability system set in place to keep you on track.  If you are in one of our coaching programs, this is built into the program when you use the tools and resources available to you. 
  • Scream your goals from the rooftops.  Tell everyone you know what your goals are and when you will accomplish them.  This enrolls others to help you along your path.

Take these tips and use them consistently to aim unswervingly at your principle targets.  You success is achieved through the dedication to do whatever it takes to stay on track to reach your goals.  Are you ready to implement your whatever it takes attitude?
