Goal setting is fundamental to achieving success and should be a priority for all everyone. If you don’t know where you’re going and you don’t have goals to achieve then you’ll end up going nowhere. Today, Jay shares with you a simple five-step method for setting detailed, measurable, attainable, realistic and deadline driven goals.
Jay also discusses the mindset around achieving your goals and why you too can become a success in business, if you take action, get a mentor and visualise.
Step 1: Your goals need to be detailed. Break them down so that you can follow them meticulously.
Step 2: Create measurable goals that are time sensitive. Ensure you measure them on a weekly or monthly basis.
Step 3: Are your goals attainable? you need to believe that you can achieve it.
Step 4: Make them realistic.
Step 5: Set deadlines so that you can see a tangible result.
- Visualising your goals is really important. If you don’t visualise it, you won’t be able to achieve it. The more you tell yourself something will happen the more likely it is to actually happen. This works both ways, with the positive and the negative.
- Self-belief comes from really believing in your goals and making them achievable. This is where mentoring and masterminds can really super-charge your business growth. Individually the first thing we have in our minds is uncertainty. By having a mentor and someone on your side that’s been there and done it, they will help you through it.
“Setting goals should be a priority, but remember to not set your goals too high so that you can’t achieve them.”
“Realising the doubts is really important to making visualising what it is you want to achieve.”
“Take action. Unless you put in the hard work and go out there and implement, you won’t achieve. Be an action taker, make it happen and you will succeed.”
ABOUT THE HOST
Jay Dhillon is a serial entrepreneur, investor and philanthropist based in the UK with a proven track record of growing businesses from start-up to success- and helping others do the same. From humble beginnings, Jay grew his first business from 0-500 employees and three locations, racking up sales of over £30 million – all without any investment other than a small amount of savings. The business went on to acquire major clients such as Landrover, Jaguar, Toyota and New Look, to name a few.
Its huge success inevitably brought about outside interest and at the age 33 Jay eventually sold the company to a London investment firm in Doyen Resources. Today, Jay owns several businesses in different sectors and helps entrepreneurs achieve success.
A calling to give back and help others led to Jay being chosen for the highly-coveted role as a Prince’s Trust mentor, where his achievements were marked by a personal invitation to Buckingham Palace to meet Prince Charles.
After helping several young entrepreneurs to success as a mentor for the Trust, Jay’s burning desire to bring his wisdom and knowledge to a wider audience ultimately triggered the concept of The Business Mentor Podcast.
Jay feels that anyone can achieve success in business with the right advice and mentoring and is now sharing his knowledge with his growing audience via his podcast.
In the UK alone 95% of business fail within the first five years and Jay’s aim is to reduce that number.
Backed with the hard-earned knowledge and experience from his time in business, The Business Mentor Podcast will share Jay’s personal business lessons as well those of other successful entrepreneur guests who share their wisdom and secrets on the show.
