What do you think a successful entrepreneur would tell you if you asked what their single biggest recommendation for success is? Hands down it would be setting smart objectives together with taking action. To move from our current situation to our ideal situation, we need a map. Without a target, you miss 100% of your shots.

Most of us are unaware of our true abilities. It doesn't matter what your objectives are, but rather your desire to reach them, a core leadership trait. Whether your smart goal is financial, personal or business, following these 10 steps will magnify your success.

10 Effective Tips to Smart Objectives

1. Personal Aspirations

Honor yourself first by guaranteeing the smart objectives you set are goals YOU want to accomplish personally, not those expected of you by others. An important leadership trait is a high level of independence.

2. Rephrase Goals to Promises

Most people's relationship with goals is negative. Harvard University research reveals that of the goals set by the average person 70% are not achieved, however 98% of the promises they make are fulfilled. Change your subconscious mind to focus on promises and notice a difference in your consequences.

3. Distinct Promises

Have accurate, unambiguous promises so you know what you are working towards, how to measure progress and know when you have obtained it. A vague promise presents imprecise results.

4. Implement External Tools

Every leader needs positive motivators (people in your life that you want to do things for) as well as negative motivators (proving to others you can succeed). Both motivators urge you to move forward.

5. Form a Promise Plan

As businesses value business plans to chart their success, people ought to have life plans to outline their success. Outline:

' What your promise is

' When you want to achieve it by

' Where you expect to be when you achieve it

' Why you want to achieve it

' Who you want to aid you in achieving it

' How you plan to achieve it. This may not be obvious at the outset but will unfold as you evolve towards your smart objectives.

6. Examine Your Smart Objectives Frequently

Successful people focus with intensity on their promises, so review your promise and plan daily for at least 20 minutes. This initiates the conscious mind to imagine new ideas and programs your subconscious mind to produce new habits and expectations to deliver upon.

7. Positive Affirmations

Continuously convey to yourself you will be a success. Watch what you say as this impacts your thoughts and actions and therefore your results. Your inner voice is exceptionally powerful, so listen to it.

8. Communicate Your Smart Goals

One of the leadership traits that separates the masses is the willingness to notify others about your promises. This raises the risk and thus your level of dedication towards achieving them. Furthermore, it assists in verbalizing your promise as it becomes clearer with each expression you make.

9. Envision Your Smart Goals

Envisage the outcome as if you are currently experiencing it. Feeling it, seeing it and believing it comes prior to achieving it.

10. Assume Action

We are the cause of whether we either succeed or fail. Without action you have no possibility of moving forward and achieving your promises. Action is the mark of an effective leader. Why wait another moment?

Employing these smart goal setting rules will move you closer to accomplishing your aspirations. Successful entrepreneurs include their promises into their daily actions, resulting in constant reminders. By taking action every day you are building the foundation for your success ' one brick at a time.
