Dave Hill, CEO of DMH Empire a content asset management, consultants & investment firm that specializes in business management and strategic planning for its clients is a great example of someone who knows how to seize his goals.

Companies such as Absolute, Red Bull, Ford and many others hire him to reach the influential Millennial market via various digital and content marketing strategies. He attributes his firm’s growth to the application of his 10-step “Work Your Plan” motto, a philosophy that he says turns success into a replicable process. Here are the top three steps:

1. Develop habits of success. Hill says that this will help you grow toward achieving your goals. He suggests reading and researching someone who has already reached a goal that you are trying to attain and mimic their steps, checking off the list of what is completed so you can see your progress at each benchmark.  This increases motivation to reach the next set of goals, thereby bringing success into firm grasp.  “As I get closer to my goal, I also take time out to meditate and/or unwind to reboot my thoughts.”

2. Re-read your plan. “Do this every day and adjust it as you go because you will learn something new along the way each time,” explains Hill.

3. Stay true to your word. Tell your close friends and family what your goals are, even if they don’t believe in you. This way, you know have to live up to what you said you’re going to do.
