How to Get Back on Track When You Fall Behind on Your Business Goals
Have you fallen behind on your rank advancement and income goals, but not sure how to get back on track? In this episode I’m sharing my best tips for how to get refocused, re-motivated and create momentum in your business if you’re feeling behind.
In each episode of the Freedom Factor I like to provide you with a powerful free resource to help you get more out of our time together.
I know how frustrating and overwhelming it can feel to be behind on your goals… and I’ve found the simplest way to get past that feeling and into action is with a few simple questions that help you identify where you are now, and how to move forward QUICKLY. I call it my simple goal setting worksheet, and it’s guaranteed to help you get refocused, re-motivated and help you get back on track with any goal QUICKLY.
You can download the worksheet for free by clicking on the image above, or just click here.
For every goal I’ve achieved in life and business, I can think of at least 10 I haven’t achieved… or didn’t achieve as quickly as I planned. Too many people avoid setting goals because they get hung up on, “What if I don’t reach them?” — when the attitude you should have it, “Even if I don’t hit my deadline, I know by setting this goal I will be farther along than if I just sit here.”
You won’t always hit every goal on time… but this should inspire you to set bigger, bolder goals because it means you have nothing to lose! Even if you don’t get as far as you want as quickly as you want, you still win if you move forward at all. And every win, big or small, is worth celebrating!
I talk more about my goal setting philosophy inside the episode, so Be sure to listen to the podcast for all the details.
That being said, there are a few simple strategies you can use if you’re falling behind on a goal, to help you get refocused, re-motivated and back on track ASAP. So let’s dive in:
Revisit Your Why
It sounds simple, but if you’re lacking motivation, focus and discipline in any goal-achieving endeavor, it almost always can be traced back to your why. A strong vision pulls you despite any excuses, obstacles or roadblocks you may encounter.
It will inspire you, motivate you, and help you brush off the negative things that happen on the road to achieving your goal. If you’re struggling with motivation, discipline or focus… revisit your why and make sure it’s rock solid. I talk more about HOW to do this inside the episode.
Take Control of Your Day
As humans our default setting is to be in reactive mode. We wake up immediately reacting to the alarm clock blaring in our ear, to the demands of our calendar, our families, our boss, and the things screaming at us in our environment.
An essential part of achieving goals is to be able to move forward proactively — staying on course and taking control of your schedule, daily actions and habits.
This starts with a strong morning routine… which I talk about extensively in Episode 30.
Identify Your Action Steps
When I first started setting goals in my business I would get SO fired up about the end result. I would focus on the destination, and overlook the steps required to get me there. This resulted in a lot of frustration and missed goals… because even though I had my goals written down on paper, I failed to take the actions required to achieve them.
Inside the podcast episode I break down how to identify and execute the most important action steps that will help you get the most bang for your buck — in other words, I show you how to get the MOST results with the LEAST amount of effort. Pretty cool, huh? Be sure to listen in!
Give Yourself a Reward
An important part of any goal is deciding how you will celebrate when you get there. Our brains are hardwired to move toward rewards… so give yourself a prize for achieving your goal, no matter how small it is!
Inside the podcast episode I share some examples of “win rewards” I’ve given myself over the years to help inspire you to create your own!
