How To Reach Attainable Reasonable Goals

Year after year, January comes along and many people say their New Year’s Resolutions. Whether it is:

  • I want to change the way “blank”
  • I want to make this amount of “$$$”
  • I want to lose this “many pounds”
  • I want “this or that” for myself, family or out of life

All of those resolutions are great things to strive for but you must be willing to work at them.  It is a good habit to make goals for yourself, have you thought about what you are going to do to hit those goals?  It is easy to say “I am going to do this or that” and by the middle and to the end of the year, those resolutions will either fade away or get pushed to the side which could possibly leave you feeling discouraged or disappointed that you did not reach them.  So, when January comes along again, you tell yourself that you are going to do “that goal” this year.  How many years do you plan to let pass you by?

CHANGE THE WAY YOU THINK ABOUT GOALS

The first thing I want you to do is ask yourself the following:

  • How do I feel when I don’t accomplish a goal?
  • Was that a realistic goal I was able to reach?
  • What efforts did I make towards getting to that goal?

Don’t set yourself up for failure. Goals should not be made and then put to the side.  The effort you take in making the goal is as important as getting there.  No goals are perfect because you are not perfect but you have the opportunity to achieve whatever you set your mind to.  Set goals you feel good about and can achieve but they must lead you towards what you want. You will be surprised at how good you will feel when you meet that goal.  Dedicate yourself to making goals that are not far-fetched. If your goal is to make 100,000 a year and you only made 35,000 in the previous year with no set plan at achieving it, the less likely that you will not achieve it. Just saying you will do something is not a plan. You must work towards making your goals become a reality.

FYI: Have you ever thought about how much time you have in a year to attain your goals? Did you know that there is a total of 8,760 hours in a year (excluding leap year) and if you sleep 8 hours a night- or day for 3rd shifters- which is 2,920 hours, that leaves you 5,840 hours to hit the goals you made for the year? Think about when you factor in other obligations? If you look at it, that is not a whole lot of time to sit back and think about what you should be doing to get to your goal. You need to start taking MASSIVE action TODAY towards achieving your goals.

MAKING YOURSELF ACCOUNTABLE FOR YOUR GOALS

Here is one way on how to reach attainable reasonable goals, ACCOUNTABILITY. It is essential for you to be accountable for the actions you take towards your goal.  Setting resolutions or goals should be more than just putting them down on paper and saying that I will get to this or that point in your life.  Decide what needs to happen to meet your goal(s) and work at doing something towards it every day.  Only you can take the steps needed for success!  It all boils down to consistent actions.

Make your goals a “BIG DEAL” to help you establish accountability for yourself.  Tell yourself, “If I don’t HIT the goals that I set, I am letting myself down”. Believe in what you speak or what you set. If you do what you say you are going to do every time and hold yourself accountable, it will become a habit that you want to keep to yourself.  HABITS CREATE SUCCESS.

EXAMINE THE WAY YOU SET GOALS

It is not ok to have goals without holding yourself accountable but you must also look at the way you are setting these goals.  Instead of just looking at the goal you have for the year in one big chunk; plan to set monthly goals and then break that down into weekly smaller reasonable goals.  Do these steps and aim to stay on track no matter what.

You should be setting steady monitored goals that you can achieve and then build on that. But if reach the goals you set consistently, you will continue to aim at conquering those goals.  You need to monitor your activity and the best way to do that is by documenting the activities you have done.  Doing this will show how you are progressing.  If you don’t have anything to compare your goals to, how can you know how close you are to your goal?

 

We hope this article on HOW TO REACH ATTAINABLE REASONABLE GOALS will armed you with the knowledge you need to get started moving forward to where you want to go instead of being held back with discouragement and disappointments. Remember, for every goal you set, you should have a step by step plan in order to reach that goal. Breaking down your goals into monthly, weekly or maybe daily objectives will help them to be more attainable.

So, what is the main goal you want to reach this year? We would love to hear your goals.  Feel free to share this if you got value. Thanks for reading!

Making a blind offer to a homeowner

 

Q: Is there a way for me to know how much to offer a homeowner without going to the property?

Offer to a homeowner

A: When determining a blind offer for purchasing a homeowner’s property, it is best to gather as much information about the site from online sources. It is recommended that you do a google search of the address and look at google street view to make sure there is actually a property there.  Also, use the tool to see the condition of the neighborhood.

Zillow.com, Trulia.com, Eppraisal.com are great sites to get some information and estimates of the value of the homeowner’s property as well as comps. You can also visit your online county website to gather the owners names, addresses (if they are absentee owners) and tax assessment information.

These are great ways to get a broad idea on a blind offer to a homeowner but this information will not let you know the condition of the property. The online pictures may be up to 10 years old, the property could have had a fire or the home could have been remodeled in the last few years. It is hard to determine an offer without knowing the repair costs which could range from minor cosmetic repairs to major reconstruction.

If you want to get the best estimate without you personally going to the property, you could hire someone to go to the property.  They can take some pictures for you and possibly talk to some neighbors to get some info regarding the area.  It is best to get some hard evidence to arm you for negotiating the best potential deal that can benefit both you and the homeowner.

STOP… Read this before creating a lead magnet

 

If you are looking to create a valuable content based lead magnet to drive in leads then this post is for you.

Before creating a lead magnet to drive in leads, make sure it’s relevant and don’t make the prospect think “IS THAT IT”, strive for value.  I have had this happen so many times and it is very disappointing.  People will get turned off very quickly if you provide information that isn’t worth their time spent.  I know the object is to reel the prospect into buying, selling or signing up for your email list but the information must be VALUABLE.

Make sure when creating your lead magnet, it is something that the prospect could really use to better their situation or gain a better understanding of whatever you are presenting. You may hear this a lot “under promise, over deliver”, this is actually some great advice when it comes to building trust or relationships.  When they see that you are delivering more than what you promised, they may want to do more business with you.

You need to make sure the content that you create is something that the reader needs to help them and has the potential to ultimately send that lead back to you. I suggest that you write down a few ideas in the niche that you are in and see if you can create a PDF that would entice the individual to stop and read what you have to offer.

Take the time to answer the following questions to narrow down the content you would like to offer:

  1. Who is it that you’re trying to attract?
  2. Who is your target market?
  3. Who are the people that you really want to serve?
  4. Who do you want to attract to you?
  5. What are their problems?
  6. What do they struggle with?
  7. What questions might they have?
  8. What solutions do they desire?
  9. What are their obstacles?

If you can answer these questions you are well on your way to creating lead content that will prove to be valuable to your reader.
