Achieve Your Goals For Success Step By Step

You have a dream! Now, how do you make it happen?
 
First, imagine that it is real. See every detail so clearly that you can reach out and touch it. You can feel the emotions of being there. For example if you want a certain car, then what kind is it? What color is it? Imagine you are sitting in it like you will when it is brand new. How does it feel How does it smell? Go for a drive in your car. If it’s a convertible, drive with the top down! Experience the wind blowing in your face and through your hair. Hear the sounds around you. If you can take a real test drive in one, do that! Get a picture and post it where you will see it each day. Do this visualization several times a day until it becomes part of you. This action is important because your subconscious will help enable you to reach your dream and to achieve your goals.
 
Next, break the big dream down into specific, measurable goals to get you there. If you are dreaming of something that costs a certain amount of money, like the car, you will set a date on when you want to have this money.
 
Once you have your date, then break your timeline down into segments. Perhaps you set the date one year from today. So the next step is to break that down into a goal for each month, then a goal for each week, then a goal for each day. It may be easier to start with the days, and then multiply out to the weeks and months.
 
Now that you know what your specific timeline is, you need to determine the specific actions you can take to reach each specific goal. If it is a money goal, like in the example above, you know how much money you need to put away each day. So now you need to figure out what actions you need to take each day in order to be able to do that.
 
If your goal is accomplishing a project, your timeline will be broken down into different steps you need to finish in order to get the whole project done. For example, if you are writing a book, you may need to do some research before you can write it. So the first major accomplishment on your way to that goal is to complete the research. Then you need to set a time to complete your basic outline. Then a time to complete each chapter. Then a time for editing. You can break each major step down into little steps that must be done each day in order to complete the entire book by your target date.
 
Now that you see what you will need to do each day in order to achieve your big goal, ask yourself if each day’s task is reasonable. Be truthful. If you know you can do what is required each day, then you have your plan. If it will be very difficult to meet each day’s requirement, then extend your timeline until you have something you know you can do every day. This way, you are setting yourself up for sure success!
 
It’s just like the ancient philosopher said: “A journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.” No matter how big your dream is, if you break it down into baby steps that you can do each day, you will find your journey to success filled with the joy of achieving many goals.
 
Reaching your smaller goals will, indeed, assure you that you are on your way to reaching your dream! You will gain the confidence you need to continue and receive the desire you need to do whatever actions are required each day!
 
Celebrate achieving even the little goals, and enjoy your journey to your certain success! Use these steps to achieve your goals in all areas of life.

Life…Find Your Balance

One of my favorite quotes growing up in life is “It is always good to begin with the end in mind.”  We all set goals, we want something more, we want to achieve something more and we have some “end” in mind.  It is great to have goals in mind but as I grow older I have come to realize it is one thing to have an end in mind, and that is important, but it is equally important to enjoy the process along the way.  It is equally important to enjoy the journey along the way!  I think that really defines Life.  While we all have great goals of being successful in our profession or in our health it is important to find the Balance necessary to enjoy the journey…to enjoy Life.
 
balance
 
When I think about my Balance in Life the first thing that comes to mind are the people in it. It really is about the relationships and friendships that I have been blessed to develop over the years and the memories that have been created with those people.  During my journey I have had the honor of building and cultivating relationships that I truly know will last a lifetime.  The best thing about this process is that is it genuine, it is authentic….it is Real!  Balance is the relationships and friendships we cultivate along the journey to a greater Life!
 
The second thing I think about when it comes to Balance are the experiences, the moments. Think a few years back to when the View-Master was a popular toy.  For those who don’t remember, it was red camera like toy that you would put the circle of photos in and when you pulled the handle on the side it would cycle through the photos.   This is the perfect analogy of this process.  You see we don’t remember everything that happens along our journey.  It is almost impossible to remember ever aspect of our day, our week, our year but when you look back from where you are today compared to where you came from it is like looking into your own personal View-Master at images of your experiences and moments that remind you of your Balance.  The key tip here is to make sure your View-Master has the best circle slide show you can have.
 
One of my favorite reminders of Balance is when I meet someone and they share with me that they are experiencing a first.  Their first breakthrough, their first real big goal achieved, their first cruise or even their first home or vehicle purchase.  Whatever they may be, Life is about a succession of moments.
 
Finally, Balance is about the evolution of Life.  as individuals we are built to be achievers.  We have to evolve, we have to be growing.  You know the saying, “If you are not growing, you are dying.”  Balance is about the transformations that happen along the journey.  We are all built to evolve, to transform; it is just in our nature to get better as individuals.  That is a part of the Life process but unfortunately a lot of people somewhere along their journey get stuck.  They forget to focus on their Balance, they forget that they need to evolve, to transform and they need to grow.  Unfortunately this where you will begin to get bored and depressed.
 
Part of our goal is to help you get unstuck and help put you on a path of transformation, a path of evolution and to help you achieve Balance!
 
 

Business & Inspiration Coaching

What is Coaching?


Business Coaching by definition is…

A “business support industry” that is aimed at helping Business Owners to…  plan, start, grow and even exit themselves from their Company.

A Business Coach has been where YOU are, and is now where you WANT to be. He/she will help you to become the best person you are in all areas of your life. All great athletes have coaches, whose sole purpose is to help their athletes achieve their goals. An exceptional sporting coach will push an athlete to go the “extra mile” , provide support when needed and most importantly…teach the athlete the execute plays that their competitors have not anticipated.

So if you think of YOUR business as a competitive sport in which you desire to do well…then you need a good Coach.

Our Coaching Success System is designed for people who are business owners, people controlling their own earnings, and those who are interested in starting their own business. Since the world of business is moving rapidly, many business owners have realized that “KNOWLEDGE is POWER!” and having a Business Coach is no longer a luxury, but a definite necessity. We will not only show you how to increase your profits and revenues, but also how to grow in your business so that you can relax more and work less.

A good Business & Inspiration Coach should be a wealth of information and have access to every resource you will need to grow and endeavor.

Coaching is distinctively different from Mentoring and Consulting.

Business & Inspiration Coaching is not Mentoring. Mentoring involves a relationship between a more experienced “mentor” and a less experienced “student”. It is usually an exchange of ideas without an exchange of money.

Business & Inspiration Coaching is certainly NOT consulting. A Consultant will adjudicate the needs of a Company and offer their services to fill that need or repair a situation or problem. A Consultant will do the work for you, whereas a Business & Inspiration Coach will inspire, advise, hold your hand, pump you up and wave you in from third…but they DO NOT run the bases for you!

True “Growth” in business occurs when the work is done by the person who stands to lose the most…the Business Owner themselves!

Do YOU need a coach?

 
 

About David Hanscom

A little about David Hanscom, he has been blessed to be a successful entrepreneur and part of the Entertainment Industry since 1990 and involved in independent business marketing & consulting since 1996.
 
He says…
 
I believe in the simple truth, “You can have everything in life you want, if you will just help other people get what they want” ~ Zig Ziglar.
 
I enjoy connecting with like-minded individuals from [imwb_cgt_cityName], [imwb_cgt_regionName] and across the country to share my experiences over the years – both good and bad – in the Entertainment Industry, Independent Business Marketing and most importantly, why I never gave up.
 

 
What are the keys to success in any business?
Take a moment to look at all of the successful people you know in [imwb_cgt_cityName], [imwb_cgt_regionName]. Regardless of their industry or background, they all share at least 3 common traits. First and foremost, they have a goal, a precise goal, and a vision. Next, they have a plan. They seek out the proper training in their respective fields and someone who can be a mentor to them. Finally, they work their plan because they understand it is an investment in themselves and their futures.
 
Think about this…The first 40 hours of any workweek of one’s career is strictly for survival. Beyond that, any hours put in are an investment in your future. Some say, “You survive between 9 and 5 and get rich between 7 and 2.”
 
You know, I sure wish I would have read these same words before I made all the mistakes I have made and spent all that money I have wasted!
 
After almost going completely broke, it did not take me long to realize that I need to find a better way. If I was going to be successful without having to take out a second mortgage on my home to finance it, I needed proper training and mentoring to avoid future costly mistakes. I needed to align myself with and learn from others who have already achieved the success I sought.
 
I knew that achieving my goals was possible but I needed help putting together my plan! The problem was where would I find the people who will help me?
 
Then the words rang in my ear like a beautiful song, “You can have everything in life you want, if you will just help other people get what they want.”
 

 
Finally, A breakthrough…
Things really started to move in the direction I needed to be moving in when I discovered the power of an experienced mentor, someone who has already achieved success in their life, someone who is willing to teach you how to properly create your plan and market your business on the path of success.
 
My first mentor gave me the SECRET. He taught me to brand MYSELF first and the reason for and value of doing so. Then he taught me about Marketing; marketing on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and the list goes on. At first I just figured those places were for kids to chat and share pictures and videos. Then one day I watched one of those videos and it completely opened up my eyes to the power of social networks. You really can find TARGETED leads who are excellent prospects for your business using these platforms. I mean, lets face it, if you’re reading this right now, isn’t this the exact same way our paths crossed? See what I mean? Branding really does work!
 
My next Mentor showed me how to become a leader and understand the importance of helping others. Not just helping others, but helping others with no ulterior motive and completely from the heart. What really blew me away was he never asked me for a penny to obtain this knowledge!
 
It is now my mission to do the same, help others who are stuck where I once was. I still continue my daily educational efforts, my plan and my work. I still learn everyday from my mentors and even often times from my personal and professional relationships. It is a simple formula: The more I learn, The more I teach, The more I give, The more I receive.
 
OK, so who am I anyway and why would you even want to listen to any of this?
Well, I have a wonderful family and we live in beautiful Jacksonville, Florida. My friends will tell you I am carefree, fun loving, rather goofy, and love to make others laugh. They will also tell you I am committed to integrity, an honest day’s work and the success of all that I am blessed to be a part of. I was born in Portsmouth, Virginia and spent most of my life moving around the country (my Father was in the Navy for 30 years). I finally settled in Jacksonville in 1998 and began my quest to Discover my Ultimate Body, Balance and Business. In 2011 I joined the team from Neworld Coaching to help others, maybe even you, do the same!

Sometimes you just have to dare to risk public criticism!

I have made it my goal to help the Mobile DJ and Event Industry lose 1,000 pounds, including myself!
 
Several people have commented saying, “You don’t look like I need to lose weight”. Now, while I want to believe that most of the people who said that were only being nice, the fact of the matter is that I have worked hard for several years now trying to hide the truth about my weight.
 
Knowing that 40 is only a few years around the corner I have come to realize that if I don’t do something about my health and weight I will not be around to enjoy seeing my children get married or holding a grandchild in my arms. I won’t be able to live out the “golden years” I work so hard on now to have.
 
The first step is to overcome the fear of public criticism and admit I have a problem that needs to be fixed. I have decided to put together series of radical advertisements in hopes to accomplish 2 things:
 
1. To expose my weight issues to the world in a tactful and respectful way so that others will see that I truly do have some issues to work on. I do not in anyway want to offend anyone and will not say something about another person that I can’t say about myself.
 
2. To be a leader to others who may be in my very same position I am in and feel like they are alone.
 
The truth is you are not alone. 1 out of every 3 Mobile DJs is overweight or obese. The statistics are not too much better in the Event Industry as a whole. I hope that by taking the first step others will join me so that we can support and encourage one another to achieve our individual and collective goals together. Just by adding two or three people to your challenge will help you be accountable and increases your odds of success beyond belief.
 
I want to thank those who have already joined me and welcome any others that would like to be a part of the team. I can promise respect, love and support to every member of this team. Failure will not be an option and we will have a blast together!
