Yogi Berra said that GB Cannelo said, if you don't have the courage to pursue your own goals, you leave yourself open to the many people who will only be too happy to recruit you to pursue their goals. And then when Davis from best of success, compiled this message. He says, the purpose of goals is to focus our attention. The mind will not reach toward achievement until it has clear objectives. The magic begins when we set goals. It is then that the switch is turned on. The current begins to flow and the power to accomplish becomes our reality. Speaker 1 00:01:46 Hello, my name is Vincent Del Franco. I'm the founder and CEO of lifetime financial. And I want to welcome you to the financial freedom fighters podcast. Today. We're going to go ahead and focus on goal setting and how important goal setting is, as you may have heard me say earlier that it may without a goal or I should say to be politically correct, a person without a goal is like being in a ship without a rudder. It just wanders around aimlessly rails. Better said you can never hit a target that you don't even have. In fact, most people will spend more time planning a birthday party, a vacation, a wedding before they will either plan their own lives or their marriage. Speaker 1 00:02:51 So I want to take the time today to introduce you to some key ideas and concepts that can help you to set your goals so that you can set sail for your amazing future. Let me start by reading from Napoleon Hill's book, thinking grow rich. You can find this on page 36 of most of his book is thinking grow rich books. It's the six ways to turn your desires into gold. Now remember Napoleon Hill and I quote from his book, he says that more gold has been mined from the thoughts of men that has ever been taken from the earth. Speaker 1 00:03:50 So I want to encourage you to listen and pay very close attention this evening. If you have your journals out or notepad, take notes as we go play this, as often as you deem necessary, pass it on to others so that you may help them as well. Again, six ways to turn your desires into gold. The method by which desire for riches can be transmuted into its financial equivalent consists of six definite practical steps. First and foremost, you want to fix in your mind the exact amount of money that you desire. It is not sufficient merely to say that I want more money or I want a new house, or I want a new car. Speaker 1 00:04:53 Why do I say that? Because if all you write down is I want to make more money, and let's say you made $50,000 this year. And next year you may 51,000. Isn't that more money. So you have to be very specific as to what it is that you're looking for. In other words, be definite to the amount. There's a psychological reason for definiteness. Second determined exactly what you intend to give and return for what you desire. You see folks, there is no such reality as something for nothing. You have to be willing to give something to accomplish that goal. It could be as simple as cutting down the amount of TV that you watch or for you. Young men who may be cutting back on the amount of time that you spend playing video games. It could mean you want to study more, read more books, continue to improve your knowledge. Speaker 1 00:06:06 Third, establish a definite date. When you attend to possess what it is that you desire and folks, this could be anything. And let me tell you, you want to make sure that you just don't focus on one goal, like making more money, because if you do everything else in your life will suffer. And if you do just focus on one or two things, you could become what we call a warped individual. Why can you imagine a bicycle tire that only had two spokes or one spoke? It just wouldn't work forth, create a definite plan for carrying out your desire and begin at once. In other words, now that you're listening to this message, you want to start right away. In other words, take out a notepad and pen, take out your journal, whatever it is that you need to do, but start immediately. If you're listening to this late in the evening, if you're listening to this while you're driving the moment you stop your car, sit down and jot it down. Speaker 1 00:07:21 If you're getting ready to go to bed, take a few minutes, open your eyes and jot down what it is that you want to accomplish. In fact, I would encourage you to do this as soon as possible. In other words, don't wait till January, because if you wait until 2021, you're already behind the eight ball, that's why we're starting in December. Actually it would have been better to start November 5th, write out a clear, concise statement of the amount of money presentations you plan to do whatever it is that you're looking to accomplish in each of the categories. Write out a clear, concise statement of the amount that you intend to acquire name, the time limit for its acquisition. Start what you intend to give in return for the, whatever it is that you're looking for. And describe clearly the plan through which you intend to accumulate them sixth. Speaker 1 00:08:35 And this is guys, this is most important. I'll tell you, I know it's tough. Trust me. I had a difficult time with it. In fact, I, I need to do it all over again. Read your written statement aloud twice daily, once upon once before retiring at night, and once upon a rising in the morning, as you read, see, and feel and believe yourself already in possession of what you intend to have, you see, it's important that you follow the instructions described in these six steps. It is especially important that you observe and follow the instructions in the sixth paragraph. You may complain that it is impossible for you to see yourself in position of the recruits sales or whatever it is that you're looking to do. But before you actually have them here is where burning desire will come to your aid. I'm going to repeat that paragraph. Speaker 1 00:09:39 It is important that you followed the instructions described in these six steps. It is especially important that you observe the following instructions and the six paragraph. You may complain that is impossible for you to see yourself in position of your goals or whatever it is that you intend to have before you actually have them. But here is where a burning desire comes to your aid. Now, when I say that you don't want to be a warped individual, you want to pitch several areas. These are the areas that would encourage. And we have a copy of this that I can get you any of this material that you would like just email me and I will send it to you for goals and objectives. You want to go ahead and work on your intellectual goals, meaning books that you read, education self-improvement courses that you may be taking. Speaker 1 00:10:36 And guys listen, guys and gals. What I want to encourage you to do is continue to feed your mind. There's a quote by Benjamin Franklin. He says, take the coins from your purse and invest them in your mind. And your mind will fill your purse with coins. Don't stop learning even though you've graduated high school in college, and you feel like you're pretty smart and you know it all now is the time to really start learning. Pick up books, continue to feed your mind, be hungry for what it is that you want to accomplish and continue to learn. Physical exercise, nutrition, and health, spiritual, psychological growth worship. If fulfillment, family, family, activities, outings, and other priorities, your business. How far up the ladder do you want to get to? What is it that you're looking to accomplish with your company? What kind of promotions are available also financial, what are your financial goals? Speaker 1 00:11:53 You want to get your financial life in order clear up any debt and understanding the difference between preferred and non-preferred debt, accumulating for your retirement, accumulating for your kids' college education. If you plan to help them with that, you may be want, you may want to purchase a second home or a cabin someplace or a beach house, or you may want to have a home in Europe. Write these goals down. There is really no limit to what you can accomplish. So I encourage you to do just that look to accomplish some spectacular goals. Look, it is no accident that you're listening to this podcast. Speaker 1 00:12:46 It is no accident are placed on this planet to do something special. Now you may think, well, I don't know if I can, but think about this for just a second. There's a lot of things that you've been able to take care of and overcome in your lifetime. This is a fun game. Make it a fun game for you. Do you know each year when I fill out, cause I do this every single year around November, December in preparation for the following year. The one thing that I can tell you is my number one priority has always been my family. Now you would think that being married 29 years going into my 30th year, then I expect, or I should know, or I take for granted that it might have a great relationship with my spouse, but my number one priority, the number one thing that I always write under family is to have a spectacular relationship with my wife. Speaker 1 00:13:55 Yeah. And then my children and so on and so forth. So I encourage you take the time folks, take the time to sit down and plan these types of things out. Another one that you may want to include in there is travel. Where do you want to travel? Where are you? Where are you looking to go in 2021? And I know we've been kind of locked up in 2020, however plan, you know, what have big plans have? Big dreams think big. You know, I love, I read this book called the rhinoceros success by, uh, Scott Alexander and in the book, he talks about how rhinos don't chase after Jack rabbits. Speaker 1 00:14:38 They don't use firecrackers on the 4th of July. Niagara falls is not used for taking a shower. So set goals that are big, be big, bold, and audacious, go out there and make something special happen. Cause you can. And so I want to wrap up with this and you may have heard me say it earlier. You are who you are, what you are and where you are in your life today because of what's gone into your mind and you could change who you are, what you are and where you are and where you're going by changing the kind of stuff that goes into your brain. You see what you start to set goals. And once you start planning and what you put down and you start to create that definiteness of purpose, what happens is your world changes. Why? Because you've declared it to change. You see what I find every day with what I do is I find people that have so much incredible potential, but they hang out with the wrong folks. Speaker 1 00:15:49 They're not reading. They're not looking to improve. They feel it's a hassle. They don't take the time. They'd rather buy a nice car or a nice watch or a nice clothing. Instead of taking that money and start buying books, audios videos, and starting and continuing to feed their mind. Guys, your mind is what can help you to get to where it is that you want to go in your life. And so I encourage you to take this time, special time, sit down with yourself, plan, think about, and then once you've written down, all of your goals, write down 10 reasons why you want to accomplish those. And if you have those 10 reasons, I can tell you this. It is not easy, simple, but not easy. Okay? It takes guts. It takes courage. You're going to be let down. There's going to be some things that want to stop you. Speaker 1 00:16:50 It always happens. Or you may be going down the road. You want to start to do something. Then somebody comes up with what they with, what you may think is a better offer and distract you completely. I've had people that wanted to come to work with me, but their boss gave him a little raised and they changed their mind. And so I want to encourage you to really look deep down inside with what it is that you want to accomplish and then set out to accomplish it because there really truly is nothing that you cannot do if you put your mind to it, not if, but when you put your mind to it, you are powerful. You're incredible and you can make things happen. Speaker 1 00:17:46 So again, this is Vincent Del Franco. Thank you for listening.
