Limit Associations Who do you spend a significant amount of time with that you might need to pull back from a bit? They are a good person, but they arent necessarily going where you want to go. They dont have the same ambition, drive and goals as you do in life. Too much time with them might keep you stagnant, or worse, drag you down a bit. Name 1. 2. 3. Expanded Associations Based on your goals and the person you want to become, who do you need to be around more often? Who in your expanded sphere of influence can you find a way to spend more time with? Name 1. 2. 3.

CORE VALUES ASSESSMENT


Your values are your GPS navigation system for life. Getting them defined and properly calibrated is one of the most important steps in redirecting your life toward your grandest vision. The below series of questions will help you evaluate and refine what is truly important to you and what matters most in life. Answer each question thoughtfully, and then I will help you select the top half-dozen values for your life.

Who is the person I respect most in life? What are their core values?

Who is my best friend, and what are his/her top three qualities?

If I could have more of any one quality instantly, what would it be?

What are three things I hate? (e.g., cruelty to animals, credit card companies, deforestation, etc.)

Which three people in the world do I dislike the most and why?

Which personality trait, attribute or quality do people compliment me on the most?

What are the three most important values I want to pass on to my children?

The compound effect by Darren Hardy 2010 by success Media www.TheCompoundEffect.com

If I were to teach a graduating high-school class values that would give them the best opportunity for success in life, what would those be and why?

If I had enough money to retire tomorrow, what values would I continue to hold?

What values do I see being valid 100 years from now?

The top dozen qualities of the ideal man or woman:

Now take a look at your answers above. Do you notice any reoccurring themes? Taking what youve observed in others, what others have observed about you, what you want for others, and things you would fight for or against, create a list of your top 10 values (in any order) below. Top 10 Values: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10.

Now, lets reduce it down to the half-dozen most important to you. Put a star by the values youre sure about. Then take the ones you feel are important but arent sure if theyre top-six material and put them in pairs. Think about two of those values side by side, and ask yourself which of the two is more important, eliminating the other. Keep pitting the survivors against each other until youre down to six. If some of the values you listed are just two words describing the same idea, combine them. Top 6 Values: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6.

Now prioritize your core values in order of importance, with the most important first. All are important, of course, but which are the most important? If you had to choose between two values, which would you fight for, or even die defending? Now which are your top three? MY TOP 3 VALUES IN LIFE ARE: 1. 2. 3. Memory Jogger of Values

GOAL DESIGNING
GUIDELINES Subtle and seemingly inconsequential adjustments transform wishes and aspirations into results. 1. Dont Just Think ItINK IT The weakest ink is stronger than the strongest mind. Unless you write down your goals, they are often lost in the shuffle and excitement of new problems, challenges and decisions. Eliminate outside interruptions. Reduce your plan to writing.... The moment you complete this, you will have definitely given concrete form to the intangible desire. Napoleon Hill 2. Suspend Reality Pretend it is only a game; play in fantasy for a while. Let the giant that lay dormant inside you out to play. If you had every skill, resource or ability in the world, what would you do? What would you set out to accomplish? Dont filter, qualify or judge. The same thinking that has led you to where you are is not going to lead you to where you want to go. Albert Einstein Remember: Do not prejudge your ability or worthiness to have and achieve whatever your mind conceives. Let your thoughts flow. **Understandyou are not committing yourself to everything, or anything, you write down at first. You are brainstorming, letting your imagination take a stroll. There will be time to separate out the outrageous and absurd, but to start, just play with reckless abandon. If a genie popped out of a lamp and could grant you 10 wishes in every one of these categories, what would you write down? Go for it, play full out! 3. Think Big Give yourself permission to dream big, risk big. What would you go for if you knew success was guaranteed? If you could write the script for your characters role in lifeand it could be anything what role would you write for yourself? Whats your secret ambition? What have you always wanted to do, have, be, experience, but have been too afraid? What is your BHAG? Your Big Hairy Audacious Goal. What is that one thing that even the thought of it makes your palms sweat a little? Expect little and, as a result, receive little. The greater danger for most of us is not that our aim is too high and we miss it, but that it is too low and we hit it. Michelangelo

A ship in harbor is safe, but that is not what ships are built for. John A. Shedd Dont set your goals too low. If you dont need much, you wont become much. Jim Rohn Dream no small dreams for they have no power to move the hearts of men. Johann von Goethe 4. State in the Positive Decide what you want to move toward, not away from. Examples: I am my ideal weight of X lbs. by X date, versus I want to lose 20 lbs. Or, I have a positive net worth of X by X date, versus I want to get out of debt. Or, I have a loving, respectful and intimate relationship with my wife, versus I want to repair my marriage. 5. State in the I am State in the present first person. I am X, versus I want X. The latter only reinforces the wanting versus the having. If you write a goal like, I want to be a millionaire, your creative energy will only produce exactly more of that outcomethe wanting of being a millionaire. If you say, I am a millionaire by December 31, 2014, your creative power will go to work on producing what you have declared to be true. 6. Be Sure They Are YOUR Goals Many people set goals that they think they should have, rather than what they truly want for themselves. Dont let your familys, colleagues or societys ideals or expectations dictate your ambitions. In fact, if your written goals are not from your true heart and inner ambition, your creative spirit will not work to produce them anyway. All it will do is frustrate you and give you the illusion that you are a failure and not capable, when in actuality you successfully avoided (didnt achieve) what your inner spirit didnt really want anyway.

SCRUBBINGSMART and BALANCED Now we have to check in and be sure what we decided on passes the due diligence. First of all, are the goals above completely S.M.A.R.T.? Lets check and adjust accordingly. SSpecific. Specific means well defined, something that would be clear to anyone else. Ex. Not specificBecome debt free. Specificcut up my credit cards and pay off $27,000 bills and pay off $33,000 student loans. Adjust the above goals so that they are specific. MMeasurable. This is where we quantify our objectives so that we can measure our achievements against them. When you measure your progress, you stay on track, reach your target dates, and experience the exhilaration of achievement that spurs you on to continued effort required to reach your goal. To determine if your goal is measurable, ask questions such as, How much? How many? How will I know when it is accomplished? Ex. Not measurableGet fit. Measurablelose 25 pounds, BMI of 20, cholesterol of less than 200 mg/dL, able to run 5 miles regularly. Adjust the above goals so that they are measurable. AAttainable. This is the time to pull your head out of the clouds and put your feet back on the ground. The ground may be significantly elevated, but its solid ground nonetheless. You cant have world peace tomorrow, solve hunger this month or become a millionaire in a year if that is 20 times your current net worth. Your goals need to stretch you, push you to go farther and faster than you ever thought possible. At the same time, you dont want them to debilitate you because you know in your heart of hearts it is only a fantasy and not really possible even if you operated at your highest and best for the duration. Dont rely on any extraordinary external luck having to happen in order for you to reach your goal. What could you do and control the outcome to if you played at worldclass level? Adjust the above goals so that they are attainable. RRelevant. This is one of the most important criteria to scrub against. Are the goals you set above in alignment with the core values you outlined in installment No. 2? Do they align with your mission and support the vision you have for your life? You want to be sure the direction in which you focus your creative capacity is in the direction of what is truly most important to you, your life and the legacy you intend to leave. If not, reconsider. Adjust the above goals so that they are relevant. TTime Sensitive. You think, act and react with the urgency and appropriate energy defined by the task. Just as your muscles prepare in one way when you stoop over to pick up the morning paper, and react in an entirely different manner when you prepare to lift a 100-pound barbell, so your mind prepares your body and your attitudes for responding appropriately to the deadlines you set for yourself.

The compound effect by Darren Hardy 2010 by success Media www.TheCompoundEffect.com

Deadlines create a challenge, and you respond to the challenge. In sports, the tension mounts as time runs out. The most exciting plays are often in the last few minutes, especially if it is a close game, because people respond in dramatic fashion to the challenge of deadlines. Adjust the above goals so that they are time sensitive. BALANCE Now look back at your 10 goals and be sure they represent each area of your LIFE WHEEL. The grand goal in life is whole-life successsuccess, by your definition, in every area of your life. Dont end up being the freaky guy in the gym with big arms but skinny legs, or the man in the mansion with a garage full of cars but no joy or anyone to share it with. Adjust the above goals so that they are balanced.
