“6 key reasons why setting goals is so important (part 2)
When you set a goal for yourself, you determine whether or not you reach it. You tell yourself you’re going to do it, so you answer to yourself if you don’t. It’s up to you to make the action happen.
Here are the last three (3) key reasons why setting goals is so important:
Makes you accountable to yourself. When you set a goal for yourself, you determine whether or not you reach it.
Help you reach your potential. How will you ever know what you can do in life if you don’t try. Not having goals will keep you from growing.
Live life to the fullest. Having goals and reaching them helps you live a much happier life. Instead of dreaming, you can actually be doing it.

6 key reasons why setting goals is so important (part 1)
Goals are important in life for many reasons. Here are the first three (3):
Helps you envision your future. It gives you an opportunity to start working toward something that is going to make YOU happy.
Gives you motivation. Whenever there’s a need in your life, there will be motivation to fill that need. Setting a goal toward something will help you see what life would be like if you got that goal.
Keeps your focus on what’s important. Wherever your focus is will be where you exert your time and energy.
Assignment for Day 3:
Where would you like to be one year from now?
What motivates you in life?
What things do you focus the most on in your life? Is it family, finances, or simply getting through the day?
On of the main reasons why you may not have achieved some of the goals that you set at the beginning of year is you may have shifted your focus to the other things that interests you instead of the goals that you wanted to achieve. On this audio I will teach you some tips that will help you focus on your year-end goals and on improving yourself to finish strong.

Here is the assignment for Day 2:
1. Take some time to reflect on this past year. What were your reasons for setting the specific goals you had for this year?
2. Write down your year-end goals (include the ones you need to get started on or need to pick back up), anywhere and everywhere.
3. Devise a well-defined schedule to work on your year-end goals.
Good Evening Everyone!
I pray that you had a great weekend and a spirit-filled Sunday. It’s time to get started with the “SHIFT” – From Point A to Point B 15 Days Challenge.
If you are like me, you want to finish this year and move into the new year on point. I want to be positioned to prosper in so many ways. I know you want the same thing.
Positioning yourself to prosper means taking the necessary steps to get into the right position. It starts with knowing what you want and setting goals to get it.
Have you set important goals for yourself only to let them slowly slip away?
How many New Year’s resolutions did you make earlier this year? How many have you actually kept?
If you’re like most people, when you think about it, you won’t like the answers to these questions.
A Life Without Goals – No way! You can’t prosper without goal.
Life without goals is kind of like a ball on a Pin Ball machine. You give it a push and it bounces all over the place.
It has highs and lows and big scores and low ones.
It doesn’t do what it wants.
It just bounces back from hitting other things.
The other things seem to be in more control than the ball.
When the ball does finally go through the bottom it doesn’t return.
You don’t want to finish this year or go into the new year this way.
You don’t want to just wander around letting other things push you around and into the wrong direction.
You need to take command of your life and make a decision to SHIFT into the right position.
HERE IS YOUR GETTING READY ASSIGNMENT:
1. Make a list (or go back over) of your goals for this year.
2. Use a colored highlighter to identify the ones you completely ignored or didn’t get a chance to do.
3. Using a separate sheet of paper write down the ones you can take some action steps to begin before this year is out. Give yourself the dates to complete each step.
One of the key ingredients for success can be summed up with one simple word—Focus! On what? That’s easy—one thing at a time. You see, in this fast-paced, “multitask” society we live in, it seems we are judged by how many different things we can do all at one time; yet in reality, we can only do one thing well at any given time.
Imagine being on your computer playing music, checking emails, working on a Word document, Excel worksheet, and PowerPoint presentation, and looking up stuff on the Internet. Your system might move pretty slowly. Right? Guess what? The same applies to us. We can do things faster and better, if we focus on only one thing at a time.
To illustrate this point even more, I want to share the following example with you.
It’s 4th down, 12 seconds remain on the clock, and your team is down by 3 points. You are the wide receiver in the biggest football game of your life, and you are called upon to win the game for the home crowd. You line up to begin the final play. The ball is snapped and you run down field.
As the ball is heaved down field in your direction, you feel the anticipation of the event which is about to unfold. You envision it all in your head, step-by-step, move-by-move. You know exactly what is going to happen.
You catch the ball. You tuck it in close with the outside arm to keep from fumbling. You twist left and then right, throwing the defenders off guard. As more people run your way, you spin to the side, and dodge one close call after another, while jumping over the opponents like they are nothing more than simple obstacles.
You soar into the end zone. The gun explodes, ending the game. Your team is victorious. Your teammates rush the field and hoist you up on their shoulders. The crowd goes wild, chanting your name in unison.
Later that night, you are the talk of the town. Everyone wants to have a moment of your time to tell you “great job!” or shake your hand or pat you on the back. This is your time to shine! All the years of training and hard work have paid off. All eyes are on you. You are the man of the hour. Then BAM!
Your mind brings you back to the moment. You were lost in your imagination. You lost focus and redirected your thoughts and energy. The pass is drawing near. You juggle the ball as you start to run for the goal. The ball is never securely in your hands. The ball slides through your hands to the ground. The crowd goes silent in disbelief.
The only thing you hear is a voice inside repeating one of the coach’s basic lessons, “Before you can do anything else, you first need to catch the ball. Until you do that, everything else is pointless.”
Now, let me ask you—did you catch the ball? How many things are you juggling in your life?
Learn to focus on one thing, master it well, and then move on to another. Focus may be the missing ingredient in your recipe for success.
When it comes to starting and running a coaching program you definitely have lots of choices and options. This includes the topic of the coaching program itself, and the way it is run or delivered.
One On One Coaching – Many coaches like to offer personalized one on one coaching programs. With this type of program you would cater your offer around the person’s needs and goals. Programs of this type are often more expensive than other coaching programs.
Group Coaching – as the name implies this is done in a group setting. Group coaching can be done using tools such as Skype, Google Hangouts, video conferencing, live streaming services or by using a webinar software. All lessons are typically delivered online and are recorded. This way if anyone misses a lesson they can listen to the recordings.
Next let’s take a look at the types of coaching that can be offered. You could practically offer a coaching program for almost anything these days. Some of the most popular programs are those for life coaches, business coaches, sports coaches, career coaches, performance coaches and team coaches.
These coaches would cover different fields and industries. Each coach would be specialized in this particular field. Another popular coaching area is that of the online marketing coach. Many people today want to learn how to make money online, and what better way to do this than by hiring a coach?
As you can see the possibilities for what type of coaching program you could offer is huge. Of course, you want to coach in an area that you feel you can demonstrate your expertise in.
Your first step in becoming a coach is to first learn what it entails to be a good coach. Then define an area that you want to specialize in. Once you have done that, then you want to outline a course or program for your coaching offer. Once this is in place you can start looking for your very first coaching clients.
Coaching can be an extremely rewarding experience. Always remember that the person taking your coaching is looking for guidance and a path to success. If you can deliver these things you can earn a good reputation as a coach in your field.
