Have a purpose or mission to accomplish, makes achieving your goals easier. You should be focused on your task or goal. All your actions and thoughts should be directed towards the goal.
This mind set increases your confidence and it is proven that confident people have an easier time with achievement.
How Do You Get Purposeful?
Think about what it is that you either want to do or are responsible for doing. Set your goal, or review your tasks. Focus on what steps you will take to achieve the goals set or mandated. It is always a good idea to write them down as reinforcement. For example, I want to ‘stop smoking, lose weight, reduce my golf handicap, learn a language, obtain a promotion, increase my sales etc. This process transforms you from walking around in a reactionary mode into a proactive, purposeful state of mind.
Next, it is time to visualize doing the things that make progress towards your goal. It’s not silly, visualizing the steps you need to take brings them to life. Then visualize you actually achieving the goal and what positive changes it brings to your life.
Before you go to sleep, think about what you need to do the next day. Do not allow yourself to get overwhelmed, keep it positive, focusing on the next step only and the satisfaction, or relief it will bring. When you wake up, set your mind to the tasks of the day, review the actions needed and get going.
The momentum you build by completing daily tasks necessary to achieve the ultimate goal, creates a level of confidence that is invaluable. You will also obtain a sense that you must do something, lest you waste a valuable day of your life.
Don’t get ahead of yourself, success is a bunch of tiny victories, peppered with losses, strung together.
It is critical to accept setbacks as natural part of your growth, and to enjoy the small gains made en-route to the big goal!
Set your mind to a goal and break the steps into small increments to guarantee success!
You can do it, start believing in yourself.
