I have often written about the power of numbers to motivate. One way of building your business or increasing your liquid assets is to set yourself the goal of making $10,000. Then see how fast you can do it. Once you have achieved the goal, see if you can achieve the next $10,000 even faster. After you’ve achieved ten of these goals in turn, you can then move to seeing how quickly you can make the next $100,000!

I have often written about the power of numbers to motivate. One way of building your business or increasing your liquid assets is to set yourself the goal of making $10,000. Then see how fast you can do it. Once you have achieved the goal, see if you can achieve the next $10,000 even faster. After you’ve achieved ten of these goals in turn, you can then move to seeing how quickly you can make the next $100,000!

One little known fact is that it is more motivating to count down rather than to count up. If you were going to set goals for yourself in the way I have outlined above, always think in terms of how much you’ve still got to go. Don’t say, “I’ve made $6,000.” Instead say, “I’ve got $4,000 to go.” This focuses your mind on the end result.

You can use the same principle in all sorts of different ways. If you are aiming to lose weight, don’t say, “I’ve lost five pounds.” Instead say, “I’ve only got two pounds to lose to get my target weight.” Counting down in this way will encourage you to keep going right up to the time you actually reach the target, rather than be content with just losing a few pounds.
