One sure-fire way to speed up the achievement of your goals is to get other people involved and have them buy into your idea.

Consider for a moment the various people whose support you’d need to achieve your goals. (If you’re a driven person, it’s sometimes easy to forget that it takes the cooperation and involvement of many different parties to help you achieve your personal aims.)

Let’s think about some of the people who might be involved in helping you achieve your goals. Firstly, what can your team do to support you? Write those things down.

Secondly, consider a group that’s vitally important (yet is often left out) … your clients! Your clients, after all are the ones who put money in your pocket at the end of the day. So, think about what you need from them in order for you to achieve your goals:

[li_item icon=””]Do you need them to make more repeat purchases with you?[/li_item]
[li_item icon=””]Do they need to spend more each time they make a purchase?[/li_item]
[li_item icon=””]Be clear on what those things are, then write them down.[/li_item]

Once you’ve made a note of the various people you need to collaborate with, examine what YOU need to do, in order for them to support you effectively:

[checklist icon=”fa-play” iconcolor=”#aad038″ circle=”no” circlecolor=”” size=”13px” class=”” id=””]
[li_item icon=””]Do you need to educate your team to be more positive around you?[/li_item]
[li_item icon=””]Do you need to remove negative people from your life or business?[/li_item]
[li_item icon=””]Do you need to improve customer service to encourage customers to purchase from you again?[/li_item]
[li_item icon=””]Or perhaps you need to offer targeted promotions in order to increase your customers’ spend with you?[/li_item]

The point of this exercise is to realise that even though you need the support and assistance of other people, YOU need to help them, to help you. With the support of those around you and the cooperation of key parties (like clients) you’ll be strides ahead and will find the journey of achieving your goals a lot more satisfying.
