Section 1: Asking Questions
1 page
Welcome to the course!  Please let me know how I can be of assistance.  ~Montina 
Goals help us to get from where it is we are to where it is we want to be in a shorter amount of time.  Everyone sets goals.  Yes, everyone.  Some just do it deliberately while others lives seem to just happen and they live a reactive lifestyle.  Setting goals give you an opportunity to design the life it is you want to live and to be proactive.  By designing your life you can tell your money where to go instead of it telling you where its going.  It is living a life that plans for the future instead of living in anxiety because life just seems to happen.  In this lecture you're going to find out why questions are important to our lives.
We know that asking questions is important but asking the right questions is the most important thing to do.  Life will give you the answer to any question you have.  Want more money?  Ask.  Yet would one penny be enough?  Probably not, yet that is more, right?  Being specific about what you want in life is the key to getting more of what you want out of life.  In this lecture you will find out why as Tony Robbins says "Asking the right questions" is key to your goal setting. 
A goal is an objective, a purpose.  It is a dream that is acted upon and it is important in our growth.  Nothing happens until goals are established and only when goals are established can we live lives based on design instead of default.  Great books that I recommend are "The Magic of Thinking BIG" by David J. Schwartz and "First Steps to Wealth" by Dani Johnson as supplementary reading materials for this year.
Section 2: Areas of Focus
What we focus on expands.  What are the areas of expansion that you'd like in your life?
Your spiritual commitment is important to your overall life. Consider meditation, prayer and daily Bible reading as the foundation of your life.  It is the critical success key to every other area of your life and must have direct focus. Whatever it is that you believe is important for YOU and necessary for your success.  
No matter what it is that you do - family is always going to be important.  Don't focus so much on the external areas of your life that you forget to grow the areas of your life that matter the most.  Great relationships don't just happen, they are created through magic moments.  During this lecture we will record the goals that you have for your relationships. 
You need energy to live!  What creates extraordinary health? Knowledge, information and a plan!  How will you make any year your best year if you don't focus on what it takes to succeed? During this segment we will share simple strategies to guide you in choosing the goals that should be YOUR focus to have an outstanding year!
Financial goals are often the first goals that people set or the ones that they will quickly avoid.  No matter what your financial situation is, you MUST make a plan to succeed.  Debt does not mean give up, roll over and die.  It simply means that you must make better financial decisions.  It's just that simple. This is one of my favorite sections and we'll grow great together!
Section 3: Multiple Streams of Income
Being in business can be the beginning.  Whether you are a technician, manager or entrepreneur will help you to understand what you truly want to focus on so that you can build your business.

We recommend "E-Myth" by Michael Gerber as a supplementary reading for this lecture.

Residual Income
Passive Income Streams
Section 4: Personal Development

Everything we do takes up physical time in our lives. Without getting focused you may find that you simply get nothing done. Too much then leads to overwhelm which leads to a life of default instead of by design.

Now look at the goals you've created and based on those goals, where should your areas of personal growth and development be?  Who should you be following on Twitter and who should you be friends with on Facebook?  What blog must you absolutely read weekly?  Magazines? Personal Development Coach? Live your life in a conscious state. Be alive and laser focused on what it is you want in your life.

Section 5: Bonuses

You're on the home stretch!  We're thrilled that you are choosing to live your best life NOW and we have a few bonuses for you.
