Earlier today I was thinking of some of my big goals and (just like you) I became overwhelmed.
“How can I possibly go through all these, to move from here, to there?”
Just a few minutes after thinking, something came to my mind; Why worrying about years to come?
Why worrying about several months to come?
Why even worrying about next month?
Decide on what you have to do now, today and tomorrow and be disciplined to do just that.
Do what you should do, daily, just daily, to move closer to your goals, and years to come would take care of itself.
This is an example.
Let’s assume you’re earning #50,000/month now and set a goal to be earning #1,000,000/months few years from now.
If you look at the distance between where you are and where you want to be, it would be overwhelming and seem impossible, then, you’ll be discouraged and give up.
Instead, ask yourself, what can I do today, tomorrow, next-week?
What are those little, but disciplined baby-steps I can take, daily, that could lead me to making a million naira per month in the next 7 years?
Your answers could be;
Read 1 business/finance book every month (meaning reading just about 10 pages every day).
Make friends with business minded people (or owners) and meet to talk every Saturday (it could be on phone too)
Discuss business with your spouse (yea, it helps)
Reading a weekly business column in your favourite magazine
Saving 10% of your present income (even if it’s small, you’re building a good habit)
You got my point!
Doing something daily that would lead you to the big goals you set.
This is how to achieve big goals, easily, just by being disciplined, every day.
I love you and wish you a big success in life!
