Speaker: Dave Razo

I always had this vision of what I wanted to attain. And so that’s the very first step, and several things go into forming a good vision.

Hey, how are y’all doing? I’m Coach Dave! And, you know, for the past 40, probably closer to 50 years, I’ve been amazed at achieving goals. I’ve been very curious about the process of achieving goals. And what I wanted to do in the next series of very short videos is give you some of my best ideas around goal achievement. So, how you might incorporate these into your own life? Every goal that I’ve ever sought after whether that was becoming a pilot in the Air Force. Or, like opening up my investment fund, I always had this vision of what I wanted to attain. So, that’s the very first step, and several things go into forming a good vision.

After that, you want to determine why, and what purpose you have behind that vision. So, there’s a reason and that reason will get your motor running and will give you the energy to move forward. And, you also want to have a starting point that you know of where you currently are and an ending point from A to Z. There’ll be every letter in between B, C, D, E, F, G, and all the way through. So, you need to have strategies along the way that empower you to reach your goal. And you know, along the way, there’s always going to be obstacles, but that’s not meant to be negative. What it is meant to be is to give you some idea of what you will need to overcome those obstacles.

You’ll need the resilience, determination, persistence, the grit to keep moving forward through all of those obstacles. And, we’ll show you how to set a deadline. So, It’s very important that you not set it too soon, or too far out in the future. And, how to use the Pareto principle to your advantage? Also, how to avoid Parkinson’s Law? And, what can happen when you burn your boats behind you? So, that’s a very, very good thing to do.

Now, we’ll also show you a little bit about developing and empowering an environment. Then, to have an accountability partner or a coach that helps you along the way. And, what else you can do to set up your work environment so that it’s frictionless? So, there’s a lot of easy sailing inside of your work environment.

Finally, we’re going to talk about taking massive action. And, there’s no substitute for taking massive action. So, these are the seven major steps that we’re going to be talking about. And, I think we’re going to have quite a few of these little two to three-minute sessions.

Unsurprisingly, the control group showed no improvement. However, both the group that physically practiced shooting free throws and the group that only imagined it showed significant improvement. The group that practiced on the court improved by 24% by the end of the month, while the group that imagined shooting improved by 23%. The difference was only one percentage point.

This experiment clearly demonstrates the power of imagination and vision. Your ability to imagine and visualize your goals can drastically change your results. By having a clear vision of what you want to achieve, you can create a pathway to success.

A clear vision by Brian Tracy

Developing a Clear Vision for Success

Developing a clear vision requires self-reflection and goal setting. Here are a few steps you can take to create a clear vision for your own success:

Reflect on your passions and values: Take the time to understand what truly drives you and what you value the most. This will help you align your goals with your true desires.

Set specific goals: Define exactly what you want to achieve. Setting specific goals will give you a clear direction and purpose.

    1. Create a plan: Once you have defined your goals, develop a step-by-step plan to reach them. Break down your goals into smaller, manageable tasks.
    2. Visualize your success: Use the power of your imagination to visualize yourself achieving your goals. Imagine the steps you need to take and the obstacles you may encounter along the way. Visualize yourself overcoming these obstacles and reaching your desired outcome.
    3. Stay focused and motivated: Keep your vision in mind at all times. Stay focused on your goals and take consistent action towards them. Surround yourself with supportive and like-minded individuals who can help you stay motivated.
    4. Adapt and adjust: As you progress towards your goals, be open to adapting and adjusting your plan. Sometimes, unexpected opportunities may arise, or you may discover new paths to success. Be flexible and willing to make changes along the way.

By following these steps and developing a clear vision for your success, you can create your own opportunities and achieve great things.

Remember, successful people focus on their goals and create their own opportunities. They have a vision that guides them towards success. So, take the time to develop your own clear vision and start turning your dreams into reality.

Goal Achievement: 7 Steps to Success

Introduction

Have you ever wondered how successful people achieve their goals? In this series of short videos, Coach Dave shares his best ideas on goal achievement and how you can incorporate them into your own life. Throughout his 50 years of experience, Coach Dave has achieved various goals, from becoming a pilot in the Air Force to opening his own investment fund. One common thread among all his accomplishments is the power of having a clear vision.

Step 1: Forming a Clear Vision

The first step towards achieving any goal is to have a clear vision of what you want to attain. Coach Dave emphasizes the importance of forming a good vision, which involves several factors. By visualizing your desired outcome, you are setting a solid foundation for your journey toward success.

Step 2: Determining Your Why

Having a strong reason behind your vision is essential for keeping your motivation and energy levels high. Coach Dave encourages you to identify your purpose and understand why you want to achieve your goal. This reason will serve as the driving force behind your actions and propel you forward, even in the face of obstacles.

Step 3: Knowing Your Starting Point and Ending Point

Before embarking on your goal achievement journey, it’s crucial to know where you currently stand (your starting point) and where you want to be (your ending point). By defining these reference points, you can create a roadmap that outlines the steps you need to take to reach your goal. Remember, every letter from A to Z represents a milestone on your path to success.

Step 4: Developing Effective Strategies

To reach your goal, you need to have strategies in place that empower and guide you along the way. Coach Dave acknowledges that obstacles are inevitable, but they should never deter you from your path. With resilience, determination, persistence, and grit, you can overcome any challenge that comes your way.

Step 5: Setting Realistic Deadlines

Setting a deadline for your goal is crucial, as it provides a sense of urgency and keeps you focused. However, it’s important to find the right balance. Setting it too soon may lead to unnecessary pressure, while setting it too far in the future may result in procrastination. Coach Dave shares insights on how to set realistic deadlines that motivate you to take consistent action.

Step 6: Leveraging the Pareto Principle

The Pareto Principle, also known as the 80/20 rule, states that 80% of your results come from 20% of your efforts. Coach Dave explains how you can use this principle to your advantage by identifying the key actions that yield the greatest impact. By focusing on the most critical tasks, you can maximize your productivity and move closer to your goal more efficiently.

Step 7: Avoiding Parkinson’s Law and Burning Your Boats

Parkinson’s Law states that work expands to fill the time available for its completion. Coach Dave advises against falling into this trap and provides strategies to overcome it. Additionally, he highlights the importance of burning your boats behind you, which means committing fully to your goal and eliminating any possibility of retreat. By embracing this mindset, you increase your chances of success.

Creating an Empowering Environment

Coach Dave emphasizes the significance of developing and empowering your environment to support your goal achievement. This includes setting up your work environment to be frictionless, minimizing distractions, and creating a space that encourages productivity and focus.

Having an Accountability Partner or Coach

Having someone who holds you accountable and supports you along your journey can significantly increase your chances of success. Coach Dave suggests finding an accountability partner or a coach who can provide guidance, motivation, and feedback. Through regular check-ins and support, they can help you stay on track and overcome challenges.

Taking Massive Action

Ultimately, there is no substitute for taking massive action. Coach Dave emphasizes that consistent and focused action is the key to achieving your goals. By taking decisive steps towards your vision every day, you build momentum and make progress.

Conclusion

In this series, Coach Dave has shared his wisdom on goal achievement, providing valuable insights and strategies to help you succeed. By following the seven steps outlined in these videos, you can harness the power of vision, determination, effective strategies, and a supportive environment to reach your goals.
