[WI] The Secret Unveiled: How to Achieve Big Goals

Going for a jog or doing a local 10km charity run is not quite the same as tackling the Comrades or the New York or London marathons.

The same goes for goals, so here is the question: How would you like to achieve a BIG goal? Reaching big goals is an absolute science.

As with the example of running, we’re not talking losing 2 kg or cleaning out the attic by the end of the month ‒ a big goal is losing 15 kg or turning a 5-cent investment into R 1 000 000 (one million rand) in less than a year.

Most people are effective at realizing smaller goals, but when it comes to something really big, they struggle.

But let me tell you a secret: big goals are not more difficult…

Big goals require a different strategy.

Sixteen weeks ago I took on an investment challenge turn a 5-cent investment into One Million Rand in less than a year.

The strategy that I am using is the Wealth Creators Strategy, and now – 4 months later – that investment is already worth R 621 698,72

You can follow my week-by-week progress on https://business.facebook.com/DrHannesDreyerExplosiveGrowth/

Now before I apply the Wealth Creators Strategy I first want to make sure that I can apply these six points:

1.Measure your progress. 

As big goals take longer, it is easy to become discouraged.

Most of the results you are constantly working towards, tend to come to fruition only closer to the end of the process. That makes it even more critical to persevere.

One way to remain motivated is to keep score ‒ measuring your progress gives you reason to keep going.

  • Because bigger-than-normal goals can sometimes take a lot of time, it is extremely important to be sure that you are on the right track.
  • Being aware of your progress and knowing where you are at all times will allow you to change your approach as needed.

2.Everyone has to have a big goal.

Big goals keep us on our toes.

Just think of how many times before have you set a normal goal, only to forget all about it in a few days or a week?

As with you dream, visualize your big goal and remind yourself of it every day.

Look at it (a picture on your wall) or, at the very least, read out your goal once a day.

If at all possible, even try reading, writing and visualizing it twice a day – every day.

3.Your biggest hindrance is the mental garbage you are carrying around.

Making a million bucks might sound great, but there’s a part of you that feels like you accidently ate a bug.

It makes you clench when you just think about achieving so much more than you’re used to.

It is an indication from your subconscious that it is not entirely on board.

  • There are many ways of dealing with this anxiety, but whatever you do – praying, meditating, focusing on a positive outcome, reframing the situation ‒ make sure that whatever you decide on, makes you feel better.
  • If you can’t find a way to visualize your goal and feel 100% confident, chances are it will be challenging to achieve.

4.Remain focused: 

Your perfect body is the product of your eating and exercise habits. Losing 20 kg is the result of having the appropriate habits and patience to enjoy the results.

Think about the habits you need to make achieving your goals an automatic way of life.

  • Don’t – not for even one second ‒ believe that huge success comes from just one single, albeit spectacular, action. It has to become a new way of life.
  • Small changes provide constant, impressive results over time.

5.Allow yourself some patience.

Like the old saying goes ‒ Rome wasn’t built in a day. Neither was New York, London or Cape Town.

It will not be fair to yourself to expect some miracle in the first week. Loosing weight takes time.

Reaching a big goal takes time.

Both demand patience.

Start by setting a reasonable timetable and relax.

Big goals are marathons, not sprint races.

Watch bio videos and read biographies of people who have done impressive BIG things.

You don’t go from the fattest kid on the block to Mr or Ms Universe in a day or two ‒ neither a week or two, not even a month or two.

It might take years, and the time, effort and patience some of our heroes have spent are impressive.

  • Practice to be patient by learning to be patient in everyday situations – teach yourself to be persistent, like sitting in traffic, waiting in line, expecting a phone call. Just relax, take a deep breath and battle it out.

6.Only choose goals that will really make a difference.

The more passionate you are, the easier it will be to reach any goal ‒ big or small.

Lots of people take a bigger bite than their motivation can chew.

A big goal takes utter commitment, total sacrifice and loads of your biggest and most valuable commodity: time.

Don’t waste your time on goals that aren’t worth the cost.

Big goals are thrilling and life-changing. Be prepared for that.

Many big goals are often sidestepped because of the prospect of not being able to achieve them.

In a certain sense it takes a scientific approach for the process of making significant changes in your life.

Be clear on your big goal, and don’t forget the time it will take.

Be objective and create habits that will bring you closer to that on a daily basis.

Measure your results with regular intervals to remain motivated and making progress.

Go out on a limb and enforce your first Big Goal!

Live well

P.S. I am thinking of doing a webinar on the Wealth Creators Strategy and how I’m applying this strategy to turn 5 cents into a million rand.

    Hi Hannes. Your new look is great. Are you going to grow a long beard? I am registering for the webinar and my question is about how to find investment options that give a good return. I know of the conventional forms of investing- buying stocks etc. I’m sure investing is a big field of its own. You always remind us to grow our competencies. Where do I start? Thank you.

      You always start with your own mindsets and belief systems.
      If they are in place then you find out what your FFGR (Financial Freedom Growth Rate) is.
      Once you know that you make sure that that your IGR > FFGR
      So the growth on your investment (IGR) must always be greater than you FFGR.
      You only invest in investments where your IGR>FFGR
      From personal experience I know only of two types of investments where this will be possible.
      1. Property
      2. Business
      And the only way for you to make money in property or business is to build your competencies by applying the Wealth Creators Strategy and the Formula For Riches.
      So I guess that is where you must start.

      In the rainmakers startup business we show people hoe to find ideas and how to select the righ ones.
      Tip 1: You always focus on the ones that will give you “easy money with low risk”
      Tip 2: You can make sometimes more money with less effort by selling someone else’s products or services

      A fund manager once said that it was impossible to invest 40 cent and turn that into a million in less than a year.
      So in the spur of the moment I said to my friend who told me this that I do not even need 40 cents I can do it with just 5 cents, and the rest is history.

    Hi Hannes
    Thanks for the wonderfully informative and interesting seminar on Saturday at the Forever Hotel Conference Centre.

    We are currently a small company,of property investors,(for now soon desiring to grow and be successfully competent property investors) learning the trade and all the ‘tricks of the trade”,and “to know how the system works”.

    I attended the seminar, but the other two investors and director did not.When you offered all the courses, for R9950.00,during the tea break I contacted my main investor to tell him of the cost including the Software pro gramme,which I believe,after listening and seeing what you focused on, is fundamental, for us as new property investors, and very necessary to make a sound informed decision on any property anywhere in the world, before OTP.

    His decision was not to make “an off the cuff” decision” and to wait
    Hopefully my two colleagues will attend your free seminar and invest in the course,soon,but thanks again I look forward to investing in myself,and doing the course someday soon myself, when I have the finances.

    Any feedback regarding advice to my colleagues, from you would be appreciated.

      Let them attent another Property Pro seminar.
      If they do not want to invest their time in themselves to learn more about property then perhaps you must really consider if they are worthwhile partners.
      Personally I will never go into a partnership if people are not willing and open to learn more about what we want to do.

      Ek doen dit in ‘n Pty en ek gaan 28% belasting op die groei betaal maar dis nie ‘n probleem want ek het voorsiening daarvoor gemaak.
      My doel is meer as R1 388 888,89.
      Na 28% tax sal dit R1 miljoen wees.
      Die voordeel is dat ons al gewoond is om belastings te betaal en daarvoor te voorsien so dis nooit ‘n skok nie
