What are your goals for the next year? What are your goals for the next five years? What are your life goals? And lastly, what changes are you making today, to get a step closer to these goals and accomplishing them? We tend to get into a comfort zone and a routine that doesn’t allow us to further ourselves. So today, I am sharing ten ways you help you stick to your goals and fulfill them.
Ten ways to stick to your goals…
Focus on just one
Prioritize your goals and gear all your energy to just one at a time. This will help you to succeed at accomplishing one rather than having the stress of doing a million things at once.
Decide you WILL
Make the decision that you are capable and able to complete it.
Tell yourself that you are good enough, smart enough, qualified enough, and strong enough to get the job done, and decide that you will do it.
Remember your why
We all have a reason why we do what we do, and why we chose it, and why we love it. What is yours? Sometimes going back to this question can help you make the next move.
What and who inspires you? Inspiration stirs the soul, sparks a flame, and stimulates your thinking. All of these should motivate us to go after what we want. When we are inspired, we naturally take initiative to do the things that we must do to meet our goal.
Speak life into your goal
Again, you are VERY capable to start reaching your goal now. Don’t fill your mind, heart, and mouth with negativity. Words can either tear down or build up. Speak life into your work, your dream, your purpose.
Reseach helps us to get organized, helps us aligns our thought process, and refines our decision making. Research how others succeeded. Learn about the steps you need to take to help you improve the skills you need to reach that goal.
We all need accountability. Making a commitment to someone besides yourself is one of the best ways to keep pressing on.
Don’t give up
That dream, that passion deep inside you is there for a reason. Act upon it. Then act upon it again. Then just keep acting on it and keep pressing forward until you reach your goal.
Have a strong community to support you.
I have learned first hand just the importance of having a strong community. With blogging, I have a group of blogger babes who are always there to encourage me, push me, lift me, and who are honest with me. Make sure you have people that you can turn to for anything along your journey.
Reward yourself for each milestone
Look at where you are today and all that you have accomplished and be PROUD. You, my dear, have already achieved so much. Reminisce and make that your motivation to keep moving.
