Remember a special moment
Remember a time in your life when you were unstoppable, when you were going after a goal that was important for you. What kind of mindset did you have at that time? How did you feel? Remember that, since you have done it once, you can do it again and again, you just need to get into the right mindset!
Stay focused on your goals!
Having goals is one of the most useful ways to motivate yourself.
If you have not already done so, begin now to create your goals!
No matter what your goal is, whether it’s going to get a coffee in a quarter of an hour or taking three months to go around the world, the very act of writing down your goals and visualizing them each day will help you focus more on what you want to achieve in your life, instead of wasting your energy on small everyday problems, it will help you to switch gears in your brain, which will begin to set in motion the engine of your motivation!
Start with the short-term objectives (1 week to 6 months).
What do you want to achieve within the next week?
What do you want to accomplish next month?
What are you planning to do for the next 6 months?
Write your goals on a piece of paper and stick them to the wall somewhere where you are forced to see them every day.
To ensure that you increase your chances to reach your goals follow these steps:
Make sure you set goals that will truly excite you!
Add a clear deadline next to every goal, this will help you stay focused so you don’t waste energy.
Now take a piece of paper and write down 20 reasons why you’re 100 percent positive that your goal is achievable and that you will reach it no matter what.
Next to each goal write down the fundamental importance to achieve it. Often, having a big reason why you want to achieve your goals is much more important than how to achieve them. Remember, if you have a big enough why you will figure out how to get there.
Find a friend or family member and let them know that you have placed this goal within reach and that you will achieve it by a certain date.
Having explicitly stated your goal and holding yourself accountable, will give your brain a boost of motivation to be sure that you will do everything you need to do to achieve it.
Now break down your monthly goals into daily goals and make sure you include them in your calendar, the very act of writing them on your calendar will make them real!
Now visualize your goals and ask yourself the following question: how would i feel if I had already solved all of my barriers to the obtainment of this goal?
If I had all the resources I need to achieve these goals in the shortest amount of time, how would I feel?
Imagine you have already achieved these goals and are as strong as a force of nature, feel this powerful energy inside of you now! Live as if you have already met accomplished goals!
Imagine the sense of completeness and happiness you would feel if you had already achieved these goals, and realize that the most beautiful thing in this process is that you are going to achieve them soon! Feel the excitement in every cell of your body right now!
Be prepared to handle the unexpected!
Often when setting goals, one imagines that everything will go exactly as expected.
Unfortunately, the events of life and the various unexpected situations lead us to have to face obstacles that we had not considered, and to sample a range of emotions that can sometimes adversely affect our performance.
How can you manage to get motivated regardless of the events that happen in your life?
Ask yourself: What are the most common obstacles to achieving my goal?
Now write down what solutions could be implemented if these obstacles arise.
If anything unexpected happens in your life, ask yourself the following question: How can I solve this problem in the best way possible and stay motivated no matter what?
Write down a list of solutions and make sure to implement them.
I hope this article will help you achieve your most ambitious goals and make your dreams come true.
