Reach Your Goals - Aim For The Impossible
Choose "impossible" goals
When faced with a hard-to-reach goal, your best strategy may be to shoot even higher. Like aiming a punch or a kick "beyond" the target, aiming impossibly high will at least get you where you need to be, and will quite likely create a vacuum-like momentum that will pull you far beyond what you thought possible.
One of the reasons that this works is that by setting such high goals, you instinctively understand that what has worked before isn't going to work now - which ensures that "the way we've always done things" will be the first item on the chopping block. For example, if no one has ever made more than 30 sales in a month in your showroom, and if you determine that you're going to shoot for 50, it's quite obvious that the thinking and behavior that is normally employed to pursue sales simply isn't going to cut it. You'll have to sit down and figure out what sorts of things a person with 50 sales would have to have done to get them. Harebrained and even absurd possibilities that pop up in such brainstorming sessions suddenly become reasonable achievement strategies. Perhaps the thought comes that maybe there's a better source of clientele than walk-ins - instead of just waiting for customers to come in, maybe you could host a series of classes showing how to get the best out of your product. Or perhaps you might start having sales lunches with old or repeat customers to pick their brains for ways to enhance your sales package. Or maybe researching mass-purchase possibilities by corporate-level buyers is a better option than focusing on the single-purchase buyers that normally generate your commission check.
Of course, despite all your creativity, it might not work. You may never hit 50 sales. But, at the very least, with your new strategies, high-level targeting and newly generated enthusiasm, you're more or less guaranteed to hit the previous ceiling of 30 sales without batting an eye.

Surf the Wave of Abundance
Bank account bare? Bedroom barren? Body running on empty? Buddha not showing up? Why?
One of the keys to being successful in anything you do is persistence. Once you have determined exactly what it is you want to accomplish, you must take massive action on a consistent, persistent basis in order to succeed. Think of it like building a muscle. If you have never weight trained before, the first time you walk into a gym, chances are you will not be able to bench press 250 lbs. However, if you are persistent, and you consistently go back to the gym, you will find yourself getting stronger and closer to your goal with each and every visit.

Individualistic Sucess Models
In individualistic success models, success is not due to the individual's relationship with his external environment or place in society, but, rather, a matter of individual accomplishment or, in some cases, a measure of his relationship with God.

The Power of Mind-Imagery
Today I feel inspired that I should speak more to the framework of a successful mindset. We've already discussed how to ignore negative thoughts and encourage positive thoughts by monitoring what we allow to dwell in our minds.

Today I think we should focus on how to use vivid imagery to obtain the things of our heart's desire. I call this "Mind-Imagery."

What Makes One Person Succeed While Someone Else Fails
What characteristics are common among successful people. If you analyze the success stories of history, business or your own personal experience you'll find similar habits and patterns among successful people. You'll find these people to be persistent, hard-working, continually educating themselves and able to adapt to certain situations. You've heard the old adage don't work harder work smarter or you've heard the one the exceptional salesman makes a habit of doing what the ordinary salesman doesn't do. These two saying are fine but you need to remember each of them says simply if you want to make it you will have to do more than the next person. Please keep in mind this does not require you to become a slave to your own business or organization.
