Are you ready to experience some major accomplishments in your life? Are you sick of watching other people hitting various milestones and celebrating them and thinking you should be doing that too? Well, then it's time to get your head in place to start setting and getting to those goals.

Let's start by committing something to paper. Write down your goals. While many people think this is a little corny of an idea, you would be amazed at how writing something down can help you. There is something about using your hand to write down the goal you want to reach and the road you want to go on to be there that helps you commit it to your brain and start action.

Now, before you start writing, you need to define your goal well. Take a little time out to come up with a detailed statement saying what goal you would like to reach. For example, don't say 'to make more money'. Be more specific. Try something along the lines of "I would like to be making $75,000 annually by one year from now by working to attain a managerial position within my company."

By using the later statement you have set yourself up with a plan of action as well as a goal. Sure you want to make the $75,000 a year, but you have also said you want to do it by getting a managerial job. Now you can more easily set a path to that goal by doing things that will help you advance towards being management material. That could include education, networking or any of a number of other things that will increase your chances of being the perfect candidate for the next managerial position that comes open in your company.

One you have created your goal and written it down, it's time to motivate yourself towards it, here's where a little reading and perhaps some more writing can come into play. You should take a look at some motivational quotes that can help keep you focused on that goal. Don't know any? Well, let me start you with a few.

"Winning isn't everything, but wanting to win is." - Vince Lombardi

"To reach a port, we must sail—Sail, not tie at anchor—Sail, not drift." - Franklin Roosevelt

"The ability to concentrate and to use your time well is everything if you want to succeed in business--or almost anywhere else for that matter." - Lee Iacocca

"There is no happiness except in the realization that we have accomplished something." - Henry Ford

Do one of those work for you? If so, great! Take that quote and surround yourself with it.  What do I mean by that? Well start writing it down! You can write it in a notebook that you take with you. Or you can write it on a card that you put in your wallet.
As I mentioned earlier, just the process of writing something down helps make a commitment to it in your mind. That's also true in this case. But you can also reinforce the quote by seeing it regularly. That's the great thing about writing it somewhere that you can see it regularly

Now, get on track and stay on track. It's possible you will take some missteps along the way, but focus on the things that will get you to that goal and keep working towards those things. Re-read your goal, look at your quotes and make sure to regularly refer to them if you feel you are a little lost so you can get right back on the road to success.
