Acting like a Rhino to get your goals

June 27, 2011 8:51:34 PM PDT
It's all about the Rhino. Sounds strange, but these goal-setting secrets are billed as life-changing.

"Rhinos are known for one thing, they're known for charging and when they see something they want, they're going to charge at it full steam ahead and nothing's going to stop them," Dave Magrogran of Rhino Living said.

That's how Magrogan says he achieved his goals.

He left his chiropractic business to fulfill his dream of owning a restaurant.

But Magrogan didn't open up just one restaurant; he has 10 restaurants with five more on the way.

"If you focus on that goal with intensity and you charge at it nonstop, no matter what gets in your way or knocks you down, you just continually get up and charge at it, you will achieve your goal," Magrogan said.

Step 1: Get your self image onboard
Step 2: Clear the clutter

Dave tells his Rhino seminar audience that means consciously eliminating distractions, including negative thoughts.

One key is finding accountability partners.

"Somebody will hold you accountable and say, 'you know, you're always late. Do you really want to be more successful? Change this,'" Magrogan said.

Also surround yourself and share your goals with like-minded people - other Rhinos!

Step 3: Write down your goals.
Step 4: Say your goals twice a day with enthusiasm

That's once in the morning to focus your day and once just before bed to stay inspired.

Step 5: Persist and Adapt

"You're going to fail, but you're going to learn the skills to try again," Magrogan said.

Jim Jacobs says Rhino Living inspired him to quit his job and start his own commercial real estate brokerage firm.

"We started with me, a laptop, a cell phone, and a desk," Jacobs said.

Despite a depressed market, Jacobs grew his business by leaps and bounds within a year.

"Now we have six licensed agents in the office; we have about $10-million of deals under contract right now," Jacobs of Jacobs Realty Group, LLC said.

Katie Ruppert says Rhino Living helped her become a better manager at her workplace and helped her accomplish her personal goals.

"One of them was to become more involved in my church," she said.

Katie's also setting aside more time for date nights with her husband.

"I felt for a long time that the goals were out there but I wasn't really focusing on them so I think I feel calmer that it's more straight out in front of me and driven toward them," Ruppert said.
