The Life/Career Success System - Your Values Mission

The more focused you are the greater the opportunities that will be available to you.

OUR VALUES

Your personal goal setting always implies the existence of a system of values. You have worked hard to establish your own system of values upon which your priorities will be based. With the hierarchy of values that you have established you will now understand your own priorities and will be able to successfully deal with your goal setting.

When you have formulated your goals you will see that some of them will affect more than one area of your life - work on developing a detailed goal-planning sheet - writing a goal for each area of your life. Working with the Strategic Life Action Plan©. This plan will help you discover in yourself the sources of knowledge; energy and ability upon which you can draw as you work towards your goals. Be willing to use all the untapped potential you possess.

MISSION STATEMENTS

This statement is a brief powerful summary your ‘reason for being’. It should be one to three sentences long; a mission statement provides direction, focus and consistency in all your actions. This will keep you on a track toward your goals even after the initial excitement wears away. Your mission statement is essential to your personal / career / business life. This statement will be the foundation for guiding your decisions and goals in your private life and your public life - YOUR CAREER

MY MISSION STATEMENT
It is my aim to open myself up to unlimited life / work opportunities. These opportunities will expand on my own special gifts. I will then through my own personal empowerment offer guidance and assistance to others. It is my life / work purpose and journey to pass on the unique knowledge that I have gained and make a positive difference in someone else’ life.

What you say you are greatly affects what you actually become, you fulfil your own self-definition; you behave in a way consistent with what you have written and committed yourself to. Your personal mission statement reveals your personal vision of purpose and meaning in life. You will decide where you are going, know your purpose for achieving your goals.

With development of self-awareness you will capture the ideas that are worthwhile, challenging, inspiring and exciting to you. Your personal mission statement serves as your motivator and as your tool for simplifying your focus in your life. The more focused you are the greater the opportunities that will open up to you.

BUSINESS / CAREER MISSION STATEMENTS

The career you serve or pursue needs a mission statement. Your career statement describes the reason for the existence of this career choice. If you are making career decisions without a mission statement in mind, it may result in you being distracted from a more successful direction. With this mission statement creativity will be focused on specific outcomes that will be enhanced by the impact and success of your career.

CAREER GOAL SETTING

Goals are a prelude to action, a track to run on, and a course to take; they are not a substitute for reality. These goals are the expression of your noblest desires for personal leadership. To set optimally effective goals, you need some standards to follow. In order for you to fully utilise this knowledge to your benefit review the following:

1.   You need to write your own personal goals. Address your own real needs; base them on your own internalised values. They need to satisfy your own achievement needs in order to visualise them.
2.   State your goals in positive language. Our minds’ function through mental images, we ‘see’ through the minds’ eye a picture of each thought. The mind doesn’t picture a void or vacuum. Always visualise a ‘positive’ outcome. Make a specific plan to support your action. Create a positive mental image of yourself doing what you want to do or being what you want to become.
3.   Your goals need to be realistic and attainable. These goals need to represent an objective toward which you are both able and willing to work. A goal for advancement with a reasonable length of time, coupled with a plan to gain the needed skills and experience would be both realistic and attainable and would have a strong motivational power. Fulfilment will come in realistic attainable steps. YOU can only determine how high your ultimate goal should be!
4.   Your goals need to address personality changes. Regardless of the type of work you do or the position you now hold your goals to advance must include the personality growth necessary to be able to handle that job you aspire to.

To set goals ‘to have’ won’t work you need to set goals ‘to be’ or ‘to become’ - the aim is to develop whatever personality characteristics you may lack. This should precede the more tangible goals of having. The ability to recognise the need for, and to work toward, internal changes is one of the essential factors of goal setting. It is surely true that first we make our habits and then our habits make - or break us!

TYPES OF GOALS

Goal setting is the strongest human force for self-motivation. Some goals are more important than others are. We need to bring order, sequence and priority into the maze of confusion that constitutes our collection of goals. The human mind is an orderly systematic computer - it doesn’t function under chaotic conditions.

  ·  Short-range goals - the achievement of short-range elevate you a step higher and broaden your vision. All your goals need to have a challenge, the short-range goal is short in terms of the time span involved - not the effort put in.
  ·  Confidence builders - nothing succeeds like success.
  ·  Motivation - the shorter the range of your goals the stronger your motivation is to achieve them.
  ·  Quick achievement - reinforces confidence in your ability.
  ·  Enthusiasm - reaching these goals builds enthusiasm - forms success habits.
  ·  Untapped potential - successful experiences build your self-image while you develop more of your untapped potential.

  ·  Long-range goals - involve a high degree of vision, foresight, perception and courage to set these long-range goals. You will need to see well into the future and believe in the place you intend being in 5, 10, or 20 years time. You will need to see these goals and plan for the life that you want.
  ·  Vision - see these goals and plan for the life that you want.
  ·  Plan - they are part of your plan of action.
  ·  Steps - set intermediate steps for reaching these long-range goals as an aid to convince yourself that you can reach them.
  ·  Life journey - every journey begins with a first step.
  ·  Outcomes - a carefully planned series of intermediate steps can make any long-range goals achievable.

Tangible and intangible goals - a plan of action needs to incorporate a listing of both material (tangible) and abstract (intangible) goals. Tangible goals are for attaining measurable achievement or for acquiring desirable possessions and are based on both needs and desires. These goals are best expressed as an immediate or short-range goal. They may include any material item that enhances your ability to reach other goals, develop new habits and attitudes or attain a higher purpose. The success of a goal programme lies in the conscious choice we make almost daily that becomes the habits and attitudes of success.

Tangible needs and tangible desires - a trip overseas - the new computer- the luxury sports car - these are tangible desires that may appear a long way off. You need not consider at this time whether you can afford these things or how you will get them. These desires are merely a horizon-expander. You will subconsciously gravitate towards them. You will develop the means to acquire them. You’ll open yourself up to the opportunities that will make these goals a reality because you are focusing on what you desire. You will need to have faith and persevere!

  1. Intangible goals - the internal changes required to reach other more tangible goals.
  2. Personality characteristics - that need to be developed on the road to becoming successful in your field or profession.
  3. Tangible goals - are often needed and achieved in order to get a long term intangible goal.
  4. Goals of becoming - of developing certain personality characteristics or increasing skills and knowledge to strengthen areas that are comparatively weak.

The intangible goal
My ultimate goal is to be the Sales Manager for the state division of the manufacturing plant of XYZ Pty Ltd.

The tangible goal
May represent steps towards its achievement e.g. before achieving this high position I must acquire the decision making ability required, I will need to be able to overcome procrastination and learn how to lead, inspire and motivate others.

Make an effort to list your own intangible goals with complete honesty. Nobody else needs to see these goals. Crystallise your thinking to the best of your ability. Goal setting is a continuous improvement process, as you progress and grow in the habit of goal setting you will make periodic revisions. These will gradually emerge into a vivid image of both the goal and the solution to any problem that stands in the way of achievement.

You are the only person who can self-manage your life and in particular your career. To be successful all you need to do is use your greatest talent your ability to plan, to imagine and to prescribe for yourself. You will live a richer fuller life if you rediscover your individualism; realise that you can act on the future with a great deal more certainty than is yours when you simply allow the future to act upon you.

GOAL SETTING INVOLVES KNOWING WHO YOU ARE WHAT IS IMPORTANT TO YOUR SUCCESS WHERE YOU ARE GOING WHAT YOU NEED TO DO TO GET THERE

Take time each week to move forward in the development of plans for reaching these goals. You determine how quickly you accomplish these goals. This will depend on your needs, your understanding and your motivation. Progressive forward movement maintained, as a habit is more effective than high-speed movement for a short time followed by inaction.

As I examine my own personal system, it becomes evident that my values strongly affect my success. Here are three values that have high importance for me.
