Make Goals for Work, Not Money

It is all about the law of action, not attraction. In this powerful video, Sue shows us how to change obvious desperation into empowering intention, how to look for people instead of money, and how to truly turn a dream into a reality. Sue shares how there is freedom in setting goals, how to turn our words into action items, and what we should prepare for after we decide to stop being idle and start being positively active in our business and our personal lives.

Key Points:

MAKE A GOAL AND THEN GOING AFTER IT

The first thing Sue does when she wakes up in the morning is set my intention for my actions for the day.

That is ACTION. It’s not lying in bed hoping you are going to attract what you want, but going out and doing what you need to in order to acquire what you want.

YOUR ACTIONS WILL DETERMINE WHAT IS COMING TO YOU

One of the most important things about setting goals is to MAKE GOALS FOR WORK, NOT MONEY

We energetically repel money when we don’t have a strong value system around money. We repel money when we have guilt around making it or about being wealthy.

“We need to make our goals around our work! When I started my business in 2003, I wrote that I wanted 10 photo shoots per week with an average sale of $1800. It took me 12 weeks to reach that goal. I went from being poor to having money and I had a lot of lessons around managing time and money. I laugh now at 10 shoots per week sounds absolutely crazy to me!”

You need to be really careful about turning your goals from WANTS to NEEDS.

When you focus on NEEDING money, your energy shifts. It shifts into an energy of desperation.

Instead, shift your focus to finding people to shoot.

FINDING PEOPLE IS WAY EASIER THAN FINDING MONEY

And once you find the people, you give them GREAT service and product and then they pay you really well.

When people desperately need to make a sale, they push it away because their energy is in a space of desperation and their NEED IS OVERRIDING THEIR SERVICE.

When you are in space of needing money YOUR CLIENT FEELS IT. They feel that you are in an energy of taking, even if they don’t know what they are feeling. They do feel it!

This energy translates into every post you write and the way that you sell yourself!

Knowing your average sale is, of course, very important (have a look at the average sale video if you haven’t already). If you want to increase your average sale, you must set your intention every day.

For example, you want 3 shoots per week at a $1200 sales. You aren’t looking for $3600 per week, you are looking for 3 PEOPLE per week who you can give incredible service to.

There is a HUGE difference between the success of the person who gets up in the morning with a bad attitude — looking at other people who are more successful, whining on facebook, telling themselves they aren’t worth it — and someone who wakes up in the morning with an action plan and with a positive attitude full of love and joy for what you do!

When you are in a negative or resentful energy, YOU ARE IN THE OPPOSITE ENERGY OF MAKING SOMETHING HAPPEN WITH YOUR GOAL SETTING.

A DREAM IS JUST A DREAM UNTIL YOU WRITE IT DOWN AND MAKE IT A GOAL

Walk towards it every day!!! You must make a daily action.

Have the attitude that life isn’t happening TO you, it’s happening FOR you!!!

Take little baby steps, but walk towards your goals!

  1. What is this “Tell her what YOU want in convocation?” I also saw another video with Emily London that said for the full content to go read on convocation. Is that an old website that’s not working anymore? When I click the link it just takes me to Sue’s main education homepage.

  2. I love your approach to this! It can be so challenging to get a message that says things can come because you want them. There is follow up to that intention and desire. You said a million things in this short lesson that are so valuable. Thank you!

  3. Thank you so much for your willingness to share. This was the first video of your’s that I have watched. I look forward to watching many more. I am also looking forward to your workshops.

  4. Thank you Sue! ‘Have the attitude that life isn’t happening TO you, it’s happening FOR you’ is just mind blowing. Having lost two babies in two separate pregnancies this year, this statement is the exact reminder I need – because even with this heartache and disappointment, it reassures me there is hope and and that there are other areas of my life where I’m excelling! One of them is in my passion and pursuit of the photography career I desire. My goals are set.

  5. I have goosebumps and tears. This video struck a major chord with me. I first heard you interviewed on a Creative Live podcast Sue, and I had the same feeling! I am so happy to have found your education series. Really looking forward to what is to come. Thank you for this 🙂

  6. That is so what I need – “build it and they will come” does not work!
    I wanted to see and photograph baby polar bears an d their mothers emerging from their dens. I dreamed it, I set it as a goal and after 3 years of moving towards it I did it!
