Do you want to be in the top 3% of achievers in the world? If so, that’s great! All you have to do is write down your goals.
A goal is just an idea until you write it down! And a goal without a plan is just a wish! By writing down your goals you can more effectively plan how you are going to achieve your goals.
Some studies have shown that only 3% of people write down their goals. Those 3% are the top achievers in the world. Pretty neat, huh?
I’ve always had many goals that I wanted to achieve, but until a year ago I never wrote down what my goals in life were.
When I finally decided to write down and organize my goals a major shift happened for me. I was able to clearly organize and plan how and when I would accomplish each and every goal. My life suddenly had more direction. I now have a my goals prioritized and I can actively pursue them with focus!
Since writing down my goals I have accomplished several great personal goals of mine. In the past year some of the personal goals I have completed are…
- Learn how to juggle
- Start training in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu
- Get Accepted Into Graduate School
- Get Down to my High School Weight
- Enter and place in a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu competition
- Learn How to speed read
- Start a Blog
Rather than crossing off the goals I have accomplished I highlight them so that I can celebrate my success, progress and growth. These are just some of the things I have accomplished, but it’s great to be able to reflect on my list of goals and see what I have accomplished and how I have grown!
Writing down your goals clarifies your purpose and your vision. It gives you more direction in life.
So decide what you want to achieve during your lifetime, and write it down! Prioritize your goals and look at them frequently. Once you do this you be in the top 3% of all achievers!
