Increasing your income significantly, getting more clients and enjoying a thriving business, doesn’t always require a major overhaul. Sometimes it only requires two simple things:

Clarity AND Action!

It is all about getting crystal clear on your goals and what you want from your business and your clients, and then taking action to achieve it.

It is similar to solving a puzzle. Imagine trying to solve a 1000 piece puzzle without looking at the picture on the box. I bet it will be extremely difficult and you might even give up at some stage. But when you have the full picture right next to you, solving that puzzle becomes a whole lot easier.

It is the same in your business. When you have absolute clarity about what you want (i.e. when you have a clear picture of your goals) and are really focused on achieving it, your brain has an amazing power to pick up information and decipher opportunities. You then become hypersensitive to strategies, ideas, people and plans that can help you meet those goals.

But being clear about your goals is not merely enough. It is also necessary to take persistent action on all the opportunities, strategies, ideas and plans that present themselves to you.

Let’s stretch our puzzle example a little further. If you’re just staring at, and admiring the picture on the puzzle box, the puzzle can’t be completed. You need to take action, empty the puzzle box on a table and start turning over the pieces one by one. Only then can you slowly start building the puzzle, one piece at a time. In the beginning it might seem like an impossible task. But when you consult the puzzle picture regularly and start putting together the pieces that obviously fit, a small recognizable picture starts to take shape. As you progress, the bigger picture unfolds and eventually the puzzle on the table represents the picture on the box.

That is when you achieved your goal through clarity and action.

Napolean Hill said in his classic book Think & Grow Rich: “Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve.”

Thus, no goal or dream for this year is impossible. You can do it! It just requires…

Clarity AND Action.

Your Action Steps For This Week.

1.  Get clear on your goals and exactly what you want in your business this year. How much money do you want to make? How many clients do you need to get there? What do you need to implement or change to achieve that? Write it all down so you can easily refer to it.

2. If your goals seem unreachable or even impossible, break it down into smaller manageable monthly, weekly and daily goals that you can easily achieve.

3. Create a plan on how to achieve your daily and weekly goals so that you know exactly what to do and when to do it.

4. Take action and be consistent and persistent in achieving your goals. Do something daily that brings you closer to your end goal.
