The #1 Thing You Need To Achieve Your Goals
As humans, we want to be able to achieve anything, yet we procrastinate on what we know we need to do, wondering why others seem to be getting ahead of us. Do you recognise yourself? If so, this blog post is for you, because it will show you the #1 Must Have To Achieve Any Goal.
There is one thing I keep hearing over and over again from you Stryvers and even people I meet while travelling, and that is this: You want to achieve your goals but finding it really hard to do so.
In this blog post I want to show you how you can achieve any goal you set your mind to, by taking you through the fundamentals of goal setting and why so many people fail to achieve what they want.
Choosing Your Top Three Goals and Sticking To Them
It is important to me that STRYV provides you with content that will give you knowledge on how to achieve your goals for the future, so in this first blog I want to start off with an example:
The other day I uploaded new wireframes for designs for the app launching. Instead of The Wheel of Life, similar to what we do in the StryvX programme, we get people to pick out their top THREE goals in life right now. It made me wonder about how many of our Stryvers actually have those 3 goals sat in front of them, reminding them of where they are going every day? Whether they’re in an app like ours here at STRYV or just written down somewhere visible for you, the question is: Do you remind yourself of your own goals every single day?
How often are you thinking about them and how often do you have the clarity it takes to achieve those goals? Personally, I always have my top three goals in mind. Every morning when I do my meditation I do a minute of breathing, a minute of appreciating myself, then other people, things in the external world, and finally I dedicate one minute to each of those top three goals, imagining them completed, finished and what it’s going to be like then. Those three goals are always at the front of my mind.
It may sound basic, but clarity is so important. If you don’t have clarity you are doomed before you even start. You need to get clarity on what it is that you want, and keep reminding yourself of it daily. I speak to business owners almost on a daily basis, who to wants to take their business to the next level, but they haven’t actually defined and got clarity as to what that means to them. So my challenge for you today is – can you actually define what those three things are for yourself?
I will give you an example. By the end of this year I want to:
- Have 10000 paying STRYV Subscribers for the app on a monthly basis.
- I want to have a monthly minimum of 100 people coming into the StryvX programme. (We’re limiting the number of spots so make sure you get yours, I will launch it on the first of every month).
- I want to weigh 180 pounds and have less than 13 % body fat.
See how those goals are very specific? That’s clarity, much more so than saying that “I want my business to do better”. Now every decision I take can be based on whether I am moving towards those goals or not.
How to Get Clarity for Your Future
Without actually knowing what you want, the laws of attraction WILL work against you. The universe tend towards things that have a greater degree of entropy (great disorder) and having visions or goals are a form of control and order which require solid focus. Without clarity you are fighting the natural laws of the universe without even knowing what low entropy vision or goal you are aiming for. What I really want to teach you, and what the app is all about, is that it’s not about finding an expensive coach to get you focused.
Coaching often only happens for a short period of time, and it may just affect one specific area of your life. Instead, I want to teach you how to coach yourself. Initially, when you learn how to coach somebody, the first thing they teach you is that you have to get really clear on what that specific person wants. It’s usually called a “theme” which is then chunked down to an objective. Let’s say for instance, you want to go to China. That’s the big thing or the “theme”. Now we probably can’t plan a whole trip to China in a 10-20 min coaching session, can we?
We know for sure that you want to go to China, even though at this moment you are in England. So we have to break the steps down. You obviously want to make sure you don’t go in the wrong direction when taking that first step, so maybe we can start off by going to Dover or get ourselves to Europe? Makes sense right? Unfortunately what many people do is they don’t establish the theme, but instead dive into details straight away and start planning, not actually knowing what it has to achieve eventually. Many people are doing this to their own lives every day.
A Challenge to All Stryvers in Our Community
In the book “Predictably Irrational”, Dan Ariely talks about how people get so busy with all the things they think they must do, rather than actually taking the time to focus on the things that will make the real difference. We tend to leave our options open, not choosing goals to aim at, which then simply leaves us with a lack of clarity in life. It takes an incredible amount of clarity to achieve the outcomes we want, and leaving it up to the universe to create just any outcome often seems easier to many. If you put less energy into something, you will default into that kind of mind-set, meaning you will keep going with a not really in shape body, that not so ok bank account, just surviving. It’s less complex doing that vs working on getting that perfectly shaped body or having savings in your bank account – those things takes focus!
And if you don’t have that focus, it’s the law of the universe that you’ll just have entropy and it’ll go down to something less complicated, something easy but not what you ultimately want. So I want to challenge you as Stryvers NOT to do this but to be different! Because our community IS different. We know as Stryvers that the happier we are and the more we are achieving, the more we can give back to others, as well as appreciate others and grow ourselves vertically. You all have the dreams dashboard to work out what the score currently is in your life, but then it’s equally important that you chunk it down to these 3 top goals.
The problem is that some of you don’t seem to have clarity on those 3 goals. So here’s a little tip for you. Warren Buffet says “Pick 25 life goals and then pick the top 5. Then get rid of the other 20 because they’re not important, they’re distracting. Don’t do any of those until you’ve done your top 5.” I would personally advocate for some balance in your top goals. So if you do decide to pick your 3 top goals, or maybe even just 2, pick a variety of areas in your life if you can. Everyone will be different.
We’ve had about 150 people going through the StryvX Programme up to now, and having looked at each and every single Stryver the three top areas we come across are:
- They want to change their body in some way, either losing or gaining a couple of pounds or just getting more energy.
- They want to change something in their business. Revenue, more customers, passive income, automation.
- A shift in their finances, such a doubling the amount of money, more savings, less debts.
These are three things, so if you don’t have a clue of where to start – choose those three things! Or maybe they will be completely different to you, but body, business and bank account is a really good place to start. And it does start here guys. This is us establishing what your theme is. What’s your journey and what’s your “China” that we are going to? In another post I will go into how you actually structure this, allowing you to remove the obstacles that has stopped you achieving it in the past, but you have to get away from having ideas and instead having clarity.
You have to get away from thinking “oh maybe I’ll do this, or maybe this”, and actually start implementing. You need clarity instead of confusion, and you need implementation instead of ideas! If you want to be a Stryver, and you want to achieve anything in life this is what it takes: absolute focus and clarity and knowing what you want. Chunk it down to 3 things and get rid of virtually everything else and then go after those wholeheartedly. That’s what will make you a success. But it’s also a much happier and simpler way of living.
Choosing Where to Direct Your Focus in Life
I’ll give you an example from when I was younger: I used to be very good at both Tennis and Snooker, and I told myself that I was going to be the first person ever to be a professional in both sports. That was 12 year old me dreaming, because the level of focus and dedication it takes to be a pro at ANY sport would not have allowed me time to be a pro at two of them. So I had to choose, I had to get clarity on what I really wanted. If you want to create a truly extraordinary life for yourself, it starts with getting clear on what those 3 things are for you.
It may sound very basic, and it is, but we have to start with the basics. We have to start there before we get to the more advanced stuff, that many people don’t ever have the privilege of learning. In fact, speaking to my own mentor who is THE world leading expert on adult human maturity and development, there is SO much from my meetings with her that I could share with you guys, but it would be completely irrelevant to share these things if you don’t have a guiding compass to even start the trip to your own “China”.
You want to be happier, more confident and you want to show up in a particular way in your life and for others? How can we support some of the parameters to grow you as a human being? Well without knowing the goal in the first place – we can’t. There’s no direction, there’s no advanced learning.
How Do We Create a Life That Inspires Ourselves and Others?
People who are the best in the world at anything, absolutely nailed the fundamentals!
If we want to be better at achieving and creating this extraordinary life of being a Stryver, and making people who aren’t Stryvers wonder who we are and how we are achieving all of these things, then we need to get incredible at the fundamentals. Not just for ourselves but also holding other people accountable in the community. What’s their level of clarity? Are they really clear on what they want and where they are going? Because then, everything becomes easy.
Your reality comes from your perception, and your perception is created much from your level of clarity. So the level of clarity of what you have, is what creates your ultimate reality, not just in the future but right now today, about how you are feeling and what decisions you will make based on that. Now here’s one final advanced secret for you.
As you learn more about the different levels of vertical development with us at STRYV, what happens is that as we reach the different levels we have different time periods with which we can hold that clarity. Have you ever been in a programme where they tell you to set your 3 year goals, but you can actually see 5 or 10 years with a lot of clarity? Then you are just at a higher development, and that’s ok.
So get clear on where you want to be in the next 3 to 5 years. Then we will talk about it and show you exactly how to make sure that every day you move towards those goals and start shifting things internally, making it much easier to achieve a life you love.
