Visualizing your goal is the first step, and is often overlooked in the research concerning goal-achievement.
First, visualize your goal or desire in great detail. This is essential.
Second, visualize in great detail all of the benefits you will receive when you achieve your goal. If you can’t do this, you may have picked the wrong desire
Next, visualize and write down all of the obstacles that are distracting or preventing you from attaining that goal. This is a step that many people ignore or avoid. If you can't clearly see all of the obstacles and problems involved in achieving a new and bigger desire, you will find it difficult to resolve. If the obstacle is too big, build the skills you need to overcome it (or hire someone else to help you).
Then, break your big desire into smaller steps (example: you want a million dollars; what do you need to do to make the first hundred dollars?).
Finally, plan a strategy that will move you toward your goal. If you can't come up with one, ask for help or learn new skills. To appreciate the power of this simple technique, do it 2-3 times a day with small desires. But don’t forget to take action, and persevere.
