So, today I'm going to share a step-by-step strategy that our clients use to crush their goals, but before we dig into that let me give you 3 things you do NOT need to do when trying to achieve your goals.

Now this might shock you! As a personal development and goal achievement junkie I've had guru's and experts tell me that I need all of these things to be successful, but I've been able to negate these myths and prove them wrong. Are you ready!? Let's go!

1. Self-Discipline Is Not The Key

You do not need to become the most self-disciplined person you know and you don't have to follow a strict routine or schedule to achieve your goals. Self-discipline is good to have, but I've helped clients who struggled with self-discipline their whole life, hit their goals and even to this day, they continue to see success with goal planning.

2. Make Your Goals #1

The truth is life is busy. Most of us work full-time and barely have any energy at the end of the day to connect with our closest friends. I've helped busy stay at home parents and entrepreneurs achieve their most challenging goals even with tons of responsibilities and priorities trying to capture their attention.

3. One Strategy Works For All Goals

Every goal has different requirements and everyone is unique. We can't try to use one method of goal achievement for every goal we have. Different goals demand different skills and with all of the advancements happening in the world we now have more tools to help in our goal crushing journey.

So here's the truth misleading information leads to confusion which leads to ineffectiveness which means NO RESULT. Here is a simple proven way that I use to achieve my goals and have helped tons of our clients to do the same.

"A goal without a plan is only a dream."
- Brian Tracy

Key #1: Discover Underlying Principles

Spend some time identifying core principles related to achieving your specific goals. Methods and strategies change but principles are universal laws that never change and therefore once you understand these you have a fail-proof way to succeed in anything you want.

Key #2: Take Action

With knowledge of the principles used to achieve your desired goal(s) you now have the advantage to work smarter, not harder. Apply these principles to your life and in time you will start getting the results you want. The main key here is taking action. You have to start working if you want to see a difference in your life.

Key #3: Accountability

The world's most successful people have someone in their life holding them accountable for their goals and challenging them to live more authentically and grow personally. Oprah Winfrey worked with Martha Beck (a life coach), Eric Schmidt (former CEO of google) worked with an executive coach, and Leonardo DiCaprio worked with Tony Robbins (a life coach).

Without accountability, you will not achieve your goals. They will continue to be an inspiring possibility for your future, but you will not have the right structure to get sustainable results and build the life that you envision.

Finding the right accountability is not hard. Talk to some of your friends and family to find out who they worked with or look for someone who has experience crushing goals and work with them.

Personal growth and goal attainment is achievable for you. No matter how much you've thought about  your goals or made plans to get them done (and have procrastinated) if you're reading this then you still have time!

So there you have it! That's it. Those are the 3 keys to achieving your goals. When you get all of these steps right amazing things start to happen. You make progress and your life starts to look more like your dreams. You'll start feeling like you're living a more authentic life aligned with your purpose and this will add a greater sense of freedom and excitement to your life!
