Every year we are required to set new goals and targets to help grow our Bank.
The key to achieving these goals is understanding WHY they are important. The better you understand WHY it is important to achieve your goals, the more motivated you will be to achieve them. It all starts with WHY.
The reason I was able to consistently exceed my bank goals every year was because I took the time to understand WHY those goals were important for me, my Bank and my customers. Knowing WHY motivated me to focus my daily activities and regularly develop my skills.
So how do you find your WHY?
Start by focusing on your personal dreams and ambitions. Consider the answers to these questions:
- What makes you happy?
- If you could earn twice as much money as you earn today, how would that improve your life?
- If there was one aspect of your job that you really enjoy and you had the time to do more of that, what would that be?
We are all motivated by what makes us happy, a great quality of life and a job we love. Develop a strong understanding about what that clearly looks like for you.
Now BELIEVE that you can achieve your personal dreams and ambitions by exceeding your new Banks goals and targets through focused daily activity and regular development of your skills.
And before you start making excuses that it’s impossible to achieve those personal dreams at your bank, consider this:
If everyone at your Bank achieved their assigned goals and targets, your bank would exponentially grow and it would not be unreasonable to assume that you could earn more income and gain more support to do the job you love doing. If everyone at your Bank achieved their assigned goals and targets, then you would have a lot more happy customers who would happliy introduce more customers to you …. creating even greater growth for the Bank and an even greater likelihood that you could earn more income and gain more support to do the job you love doing.
See how that works? Achieving you bank goals helps the banks grow, your customers grow and you grow.
I firmly believe that you can achieve any of your personal goals and dreams by working in the banking and finance industry. Now it’s time you believed that too.
Achieving your new bank goals and targets is a big step towards making all your personal dreams come true. If you truly believe that and have a clear idea of what you want in life, then I think you just found your WHY!
Have a great 2020.
