I missed it by $84k

Last Update: December 30, 2020

Here's proof that setting precise goals, that are heartfelt with a stretch, do work!

The second quarter of this year 2020 was a crazy time with so much confusion and panic felt throught out the world.

My response was the opposite!

I saw a big challenge with a HUGE opportunity and I remember going live on as many social media channels talking about how I was not going to miss this wave like I did back in 2008.

The last quarter of this year 2020, I decided to break records and one of them was to support whole heartly the company I work for and bring in a total reveneu of $200,000 in 3 months (that's from October to December - the last quarter of the year).

The result was $116K in revenue!

Can I tell you that this was my first time ever in my life to make that much money in 3 months. And can I also share with you that when I was writing down my quartly goals, this 200k number was a far out there goal that I was a bit scare that I wasn't going to reach it.

Yes, I can see that I did not reach my goal BUT this goal stretched my talent and got me to become creative with laser focus work so that I could reach it. And as a result I made $116,000 in just 3 months.

Can you imagine if I would written my usual goal to make $10,000 in revenue. I problaby wouldn't reach it or worse I would of reach it but limiting my full potential to make over $100K.

Wow!

So what's the lesson that I've learned:

#1 - Go big and make my goals a big stretch to reach because even if I hit 58% of my goal, it will encourage me to keep setting bigger goals.

#2 - WRITE IT DOWN on paper, always!

#3 - And make it a story instead of a list. Let me explain: writing down a couple of paragraphs as if it already happened with details and emotions that help me connect with reaching the goal.

By the way, in case you're wondering, I didn't just write down in my paragraphs just to make money. I actually wrote down goals to reach in my personal and family areas of my life. And I can tell you I met every one of those goals at 100% results.

So, this is a good time to write down what you can reach.

I've already written down a few pages for my 3 years vision, 1 year vision and of course my 1st quarte of the year 2021 vision. And guess what?... I've written down the plan of action to reach $190,000 in revenue.

If I can do it, so can YOU. Go Make IT Happen!

Wow! Great job Eddie. You have just showed us all the true power of setting goals high enough that we have to stretch and grow in order to come close to reaching them. What a shining example to all of us you are. Thank you for sharing. I now need to revisit my goals and stretch myself to reach higher heights. Take care.
