A weird way of setting goals for transformational leaders and speakers

By Douglas Vermeeren

Goal setting is the hot topic of the day! Most people that I’ve chatted with on the subject generally do it in categories in their life. Some of those categories include what they will do in their personal life and relationships, Business/product growth and revenue growth, things they’d like to learn and accomplish personally. These are all important areas to focus on – but here’s a quick thought. Have you ever made a list of the people you’d like to serve this year and what you’d like to do for them?

I’m talking simply make the list and leave it at that.

Think about it. If you make a list of who you’d like to serve and how you want to empower them, don’t you think most everything else will take care of itself?

If you are truly interested to become a transformational leader and help people get results doesn’t this approach make more sense. Your students and contacts will reward you as they get results. We have a saying at High Profit Speaker, “Compensation follows completion. People don’t pay for good intentions.” So in your planning focus your time and look at who you can help, how you can help and make it less about what you want.

You already have heard Zig Ziglar’s oft quoted truth, “You can have everything you want in life if you just help enough other people get what they want.” Don’t just say it. Live it!

Happy New Year!
