- Don’t Fear To Plan.
Many entrepreneurs are afraid to plan. Simply because they have attempted planning a thing or two before that failed. However, we usually begin most of our everyday activities with a plan. We do this subconsciously (unaware). While the other plans we do recall are the ones we consciously planned out. Yet, we don’t ever get to put most of these mentally created plans into action. You need to develop the habit of consciously putting your plans on paper.
- Visualize Your Achievement
To develop the habit of planning, you have to constantly visualize your goals and achievement in your mind. Just The same way it is when you are seeing a movie clip. You need to visualize your success with images, smells, and sounds. This is possible because we think in images.
- Make it a habit to Plan Ahead Regularly.
Study shows that it takes an average of twenty-one times for an action to turn into a habit. So how regularly do you plan? Why don’t you make it a habit to plan out your future every single day? Whether mentally or on paper. Planning consciously every day will help your subconscious mind unify with your conscious mind to push you to take actions that can help you achieve your goals.
- Pay Attention to Your “Wants”.
When you are planning, make it a habit of writing whatever it is that you want at that moment. It will help you register these things in your subconscious mind. So, what do you want? Is it more clients? N1, 000,000 in your account? A nicer house? Better Ranking on search Engines? Just pen it down. Write exactly the things you need that will make your life happier and better. This will spontaneously give your mind a to-do list. And then, you will come to the understanding of just how to accomplish the things you want.
- Plan Your Far Future.
The last key point is to plan far ahead! Would you dare yourself to plan far ahead? What if your plan doesn’t include your future alone but the future of your children and grandchildren? Can you focus on a past that hasn’t been written about you? This is no Joke! Don’t be embarrassed, shy, or afraid. Start thinking of your children, their children, and even your great-grandchildren to come. The actions you take now can have a positive effect on somebody generations down the line. What if you never took these actions? The reverse will be the case.
You still have the chance now, it hasn’t taken place yet. So, you can still make it happen! Use your pen and design that beautiful future you want. It is called goal-setting. Don’t forget to back it up with action.
