Does It Take More Than Goals to Engineer My Success?

January 18th, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

I had a great day yesterday.  I was pumped!  I had a very productive Monday, a great start to my week.  I felt like I was in alignment with the goals I had set for my success filled year.  I received an email from someone who was talking about how yesterday, my productive yesterday, was being referred to as “Blue Monday”.

“Blue Monday” is the day when the holidays are over and the credit card bills begin to roll in.  People are in a funk.  This funk, Blue Monday, was reported, again, on the 10:00 pm news.  2 completely different sources were reporting this phenomenon.

It got me to thinking, how many people get sucked into the herd mentality of being depressed on this particular Monday?  If I allowed myself to get sucked into the herd mindset, I would have missed my amazing day!

I realized I can engineer my year any way I want.  I can’t expect the economy to get better, or the alignment of the stars to be just right, for my great year.  I have to get better!  I have to improve my skills.  It isn’t an outside thing, it’s an inside thing.

A few days ago, I was  listening to a video talking about “Income Engineering”.  I like that.  Don’t we all want to improve our incomes this year?  Isn’t it more exciting to know it is each of us who can engineer a better income for ourselves, not outside forces?

The video said to engineer our income we need to know, and do 3 things.

1.  What to do
2.  How to do it
3.  Where to do it

I understand this!  If I want to engineer my income to better heights, I need to do all 3 things, not 2, not 1, but all 3.

To do this, I will need to sort out the information, which is constantly bombarding my brain.  I will need to sort out my activities.  Sorted into meaningful information and activities and meaningless information and activities.  The question then becomes, how do I do this on an ongoing basis?  How do I know what is meaningful and meaningless?

The answer lies in my goals.  It isn’t enough to set smart goals.  I will need to send all information and activities through my mental filter.  If it doesn’t move me towards my goals, it is a meaningless activity or information!

I read an article by Jon Gordon.  He said if we want to have a great year, we will need to simplify.  We can look at our goals and what we want to do this year and come up with a word, just one word, which “will represent the essence of what we hope to accomplish and who we want to be.”  It is not a word picked out randomly, but with thought and prayer.  His word for the year is “purpose”.  He has this word, visible, where he can see it and think about it every day.

I like this idea.  After much thought and consideration, I chose the word “focus”.  I realized to get done what I want to do this year, I need to focus.  Focus like I have never done before…with mind bending intensity!

I believe in income engineering.  I, also, believe to achieve my idea of the income and business I want to grow this year, I will have to step away from the herd mentality.  No one can pick a day where I should be “blue and depressed”.

I, also know, I can’t change the U. S. economy.  I can only change my economy.  To do this, I need to upgrade and develop better skills.  I will need to follow the 3 income engineering steps and add my 4th one…just do it!

To “do it”, means to have the guts to do whatever it takes, and to endure whatever comes my way, to hit the mark I have set for myself!

My challenge for you, should you want to have a unbelievably profitable year, is to find your word that speaks to you.  Share it with us.

Feel free to pass this on.  Tweet it, pass on to your network of friends on Facebook.  The way to change to the world, is to change each individual world, until it changes the whole world!
