Are you experiencing difficulty in reaching your goals for the past year? In the previous articles I’ve written, I have shared ideas with you about the value of staying focused and motivated. There will be times, though, goals may seem far-fetched and the way to get there seems daunting.
One of the factors that you and I may not meet our set targets at times may be due to fear. Additionally, it could also mean that we lack a good grasp of what the goal-setting process looks like. It may also mean that due to our pre-occupations at work and our families – we lack the commitment to it, even worse, we fail to plan. Try these tips to see if it works.
1. Explore the Challenges. Craft your goal in such a way that is interesting, enjoyable, and also and difficult. It’s in our nature to breathe on the challenge to avoid getting bored in the process.
2. Positivity. List all the possible outcomes once you have achieved your goal. Ideally, the end result of your goal should make you feel good inside and makes you happy. This is where your excitement and passion unfold. Stay away from unsupportive people to veer from negative energy.
3. A Vision Board. Collect images from magazines or from online sources like Pinterest that will represent the outputs from achieving your goal. This is a good method for people who are visual learners too. For instance, if you would like to go to Paris during summer break, you may want to collect a photo of the Eiffel Tower or the Champs Elysees.
4. Be Patient. Success doesn’t happen overnight. It takes a series of heartbreaks, research, failure, realization, discovery, and enlightenment. Each day as you review your set milestones, see if it equates to your desired results. Otherwise, fine-tune and test it again. This way, you monitor your progress as you get closer to your goal.
Achieving our goals doesn’t need to be difficult to capture. Your techniques to reach them can be as flexible depending on what’s happening in the market. By identifying the strong and weak points of your strategy to meet your goal will make a difference between success and failure.
