We face so many challenges when we try to achieve our #goals. Thankfully, there are straightforward things we can do to bring ourselves closer to them. Here are some tips to help you achieve your goals.
This is essential. Visualizing your goals can help you in many ways. Seeing yourself where you want to be is a good way to measure whether or not you want to be there in the first place. It’s not the same thing as actually living it of course, but it does help us think about what it’s going to look like.
Visualizing is also a great way to keep you #motivated. As the day wears you down and you feel yourself slowing to a stop, visualize. Remember, what you visualize, you realize.
The struggle doesn’t have to be all struggle. When you achieve something, give yourself a pat on the back. There’s nothing wrong with acknowledging an achievement, but there is something wrong with being too hard on yourself.
You can set up little #rewards as you achieve things throughout the day. Rewards can be a bath, a delicious dessert, movie time, or even taking a nap.
Don’t forget to take care of yourself when you’re working hard to achieve what you set out to do. It’s okay to enjoy yourself on your #journeytosuccess.
By not being realistic, you are setting yourself up to fail. If you have a plan and you set aside time to achieve each step every day, then it’s going to get done.
By trying to do everything at once, you are going to burn out and get nothing done. Setting #realisticsteps is going to make the impossible possible.
Roll with The Punches
Things are going to fall through and you’re going to have some bumps on the road. This doesn’t mean your goals won’t ever get done.
You should be ready to fail, but expect to succeed. Have a #planforsuccess Learn from your mistakes, and rebound from them. Use every failure as a chance to learn and before you know it, you’ll be on top of your game.
No one is perfect and no one gets it all done on the first try. If you aren’t failing, then you aren’t giving yourself enough of a #challenge. Let the challenge empower you and embolden you.
Learn How to Take Criticism
Have you ever noticed how some people are completely oblivious to the things holding them back? Well, it’s not just other people. We all have trouble seeing the things preventing us from reaching our full potential.
You should also know the difference between someone trying to help you and someone trying to bring you down. It takes a lot of guts to critique someone. Chances are they care enough about you to tell you these things.
Criticism meant to hurt you will usually attack you as a person, not what you are doing. Pay attention to the context and try to realize when it is #unconstructivecriticism.
Ask people you know will be honest with you for #criticism. Don’t ask people you know who will only say nice things about you because it won’t help.
You can exert all the power in the world but if you don’t #focus, you are just wasting your effort. It’s kind of like using a garden hose. If you just let it run, the stream doesn’t come out with much force. When you put a finger over the opening, the water jets out with a lot of power.
This not only applies to planning for your goals, it also applies to the way you prepare for them. Think of the difference between regular practice and deliberate practice.
Regular #practice usually involves a lot of mindless repetition. Deliberate practice requires you to identify your weaknesses and target when you do your repetitions.
