January 6, 2014, by , Posted in Blog,Leadership,RICH Tips, 0 Comment

Unless you live under a rock, this time of year, there are consultants, coaches, teachers and mentors (including me) stressing the importance of setting your SMART goals:

  • Specific
  • Measurable
  • Attainable
  • Relevant (or Realistic – which gets the point across)
  • Timebound

Just google and you will find numerous blog posts, e-books and videos about it; including on

But, in order to Ignite Your Leader Within, which is our main goal, you need to amp up your goals into VICTORY Goals – because you don’t only want to ensure your goals are defined specifically enough so you can take action on them….you need to be sure your Mindset along with your Actionset are also prepared; because to many individuals; top level leaders included, fail to be victorious in achieving their goal because they self-sabotage themselves along the way.

LEADERtip™ – Define your SMART goals, then add the following formula to your 2014 RICHplan™ as well:

  • Vision
  • Inspiration
  • Commitment
  • Truth
  • Overcome
  • Regrets
  • YOU

LEADERTip™ – Write out in great detail your views on each of the following that will contribute to you being VICTORIOUS in achieving your goals:

Vision – See yourself on December 31, 2014….. who, what, where, when, why and how do you want to see your career, relationships, finances, health/fitness, spirituality, business and life?

Inspiration – Who, what, where, when, why and how will inspire you this year to tackle all challenges and take on all actions in pursuit of your goals?

Commitment – What are you willing to commit to as well as sacrifice in order to achieve your vision in 2014?

Truth – Be blunt and honest with yourself about important, life affirming, beneficial, even critical it is for you to achieve your goals?

Overcome – Now that you have been truthful with yourself and are committed and inspired to achieve your vision, what negative beliefs, doubts, fears, insecurities or other thoughts do you need to overcome in order to be victorious?

Regrets – If on December 31st you have not achieved your goals; what regrets, disappointments, excuses or other reasons will you have? Remember, truth is KEY to your victory!

YOU – Your goals are YOUR goals….. no one else’s, not even if others are included within the goals. You are at the center of your goals. They are your visions which are inspiring you to commit to your truth and only your truth, of which you may have to propel forward or overcome any regrets so you VICTORIOUSLY ACHIEVE what it is you want for your family, your team, your business/company and YOU!
