How to Set Goals: My goals for 2018 ($1 Million in income)
These are my goals for 2018 and how I recommend setting and planning your goals going forward to the new year. Enjoy! Feel free to add me on Snapchat / Instagram: GPStephan
You need a goal if you want to achieve something. It isn’t going to happen out of nowhere. It isn’t just going to fall in your lap. You need to want something, and you need to have a REASON to want it. You can’t just aimlessly go around expecting things to happen without a purpose. This is why it’s so important to have a set a goal for yourself, something you can measure.
When you make a goal and you put it out there, you subconsciously hold yourself responsible to that goal. By writing it down and speaking it, you’re setting the motions in place to actually make it a reality.
Having a REASON behind something really helps solidify it into having a purpose. Without a purpose and emotion behind it, having a goal is useless. You need to have a reason WHY you want something. Otherwise it’s just a material thing that’s easy to let go. So with your goals, really think about WHY you want them and why it’s important to you. This will help make it much more “real.”
My realization this year is that I’ve set my goals too low and I’ve been holding myself back for many, many years. Took a lot to recognize that. I’ve always set these goals that were realistic that I felt I’d be able to hit if I pushed myself. And every single year I’ve exceeded every single goal I’ve set. But these were never crazy goals…And then I realized I was the one limiting myself to what I could accomplish. Even though I thought I had gotten rid of my all of my limiting beliefs, deep down I didn’t think I could do better than a certain amount. And deep down I didn’t want to not hit a goal I’ve set for myself and let myself down. So this year, I’m trying something different. I’m going to go much, much higher with my goals because I’ve underestimated myself every single year. And I suggest you do the same.
Here are my 2018 goals:
Have my first seven-figure earning year… $1,000,000
Increase my passive rental income to $10,000 per month by the end of 2018.
To increase my passive rental income, that requires me to buy and renovate another property in 2018. So that’s also on the list.
In terms of YouTube, I’d like to reach 500,000 subscribers and average 2 million views per month.
Reaching $100,000 in ad revenue at that point would also be another goal.
I’d also like to upgrade the Lotus this year, either a Lamborghini Superlaggera or Manual Ferrari F430. But the car is undecided at this point.
In terms of non materialistic goals,
I’d like to setup another reef tank this year.
I’d also like to get my drums set up again.
I’d also like to do at least 10 speaking engagements in 2018.
I’d also like to say yes more often. I’ve been pretty complacent and sometimes become a bit too much of a homebody who doesn’t go out much, so I’d like to put myself out there more often than I have been.
Hit the Realtor top 30 Under 30 award for 2018 🙂
I have a few other personal ones that I’d just prefer not to share with the world, but rest assured I’ve written them down.
A lot of this is just to show that I’ve been selling myself short way too many years and wanting to try to break out of the comfort zone. So I’m setting some loftier goals to see if this can work 🙂
