So, stay tuned.

All right, So The First Step Is To Get Clear On Your Goal And What It Is.
For example, Is to get a management position?
Is it to get a promotion?
Is it to make a certain amount of money?
To make a transition into a new industry?
First, figure out what your goal is; that is the first step.
If you’re not clear on what your goal is, then you don’t know what your actions are going to be to take to get there.
It’s like you’re driving, but you don’t know where you’re going, you don’t know your destination, so it’s going to be hard for you to actually end up there, and you’re probably not going to.
Step Two: Identify Your Challenges.
When we set a goal for ourselves, the first thing our brain is going to do is come with a bunch of reasons to challenge you on why you can’t do it.
This is very normal.
It’s going to tell you why it’s going to be hard, why you won’t be able to do it, why it’s not going to work, why you’re going to have to delay it or put it off, and why it’s going to be really tough.
And that’s why most people give up right away; they’re like, “I can’t do it.”
Write all these challenges and thoughts out, then turn them into strategies.
So the strategy might be to say, talk to a few people that are in that role right now, and see whether that’s really true, and see if there are some ways that there are people that have succeeded in getting that role without all the experience that you think you need.
Maybe they had some transferrable skills.
Maybe you can start to see how it’s possible for you.
Start looking for evidence of what is possible for you.
Sticking to that car analogy, you’re going to need to plot your course, and put some thought behind how you’re going to get where you’re going.
Step Three: It’s Okay That You Don’t Know Exactly How OR Have All The Answers Yet.
A lot of people say, “Well, I don’t know how to do it.”
Now, you’re not going to know how to do it. You’re not going to know all the steps, because you haven’t done it yet.
That’s completely normal.
So you won’t know exactly how you’re going to get there, and your brain will tell you that you don’t know.
You’ll find yourself saying, “But I don’t know how to do that.”
And that’s okay; you don’t want, or you won’t know-how, and you won’t know all the answers yet.
That’s okay: You just need to identify your next step.
You want to map out your action plan, and that’s going to be your guide as to where you’re going to start with. You start with the actions that you believe you need to take to get you there.
And you don’t need to know what they all are just yet, so just the next step.
You don’t need to see the entire staircase and the top; you just need to see the next step.
Leads Me To Step Four: Do A Regular Assessment Of What Is Working Well For You, And What Is NOT Working.
Once you’ve done a clear assessment of that, you can get a clear picture of what your next step’s going to be.
Regularly check in on what it is that you’re working on, and is it working, is it really working?
Did that work?
Did you get a result?
Your brain will want to focus on what’s going wrong. It’s always going to focus on what’s going wrong. It’s going to tell you, “Oh yeah, you got an interview but you didn’t get the job, so you can never get the job.“
But the truth is, you got an interview. Lots of people can’t get interviews, so that worked.
Whatever you did to get that interview got you to the next step in the process, and that worked.
You want to be paying attention to that, and saying, “Okay, so how can I get more interviews? How can I do more of what worked?”
When you reach your goal, you’re going to look back, and you’re going to see that it was just a bunch of things that you did that did work, and a bunch of things that you did that didn’t work.
But the thing is, you need to do all the things to see what’s going to work and what isn’t. You’re not going to know that before you take the action.
