Tips For Reaching Your Goals

So, where were you going???

A lot of people become confused. Lose their way. Get fatigued with all the struggling. End up doing nothing even though they had grand plans.

Why is that?

The Mad Hatter summed it up in Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll. “If you don’t know where you’re going it doesn’t matter much how you get there”. In other words go back to focus on where you were going, what you were trying to achieve and then the path becomes clearer.

Create with powerful purpose

Be committed. Have a compelling reason for your goal – what will you or others get out of it?

Focus your attention on what you want. A wishful thought is only a good intention until you put action in place. Take decisive action as if you could not fail. Know that the actions you take move you closer toward your goal.

Yes, you may make mistakes along the way … use these to learn from – Edison failed over 1000 times before getting the light bulb right! He just decided that each time he learnt one more way not to do it. Don’t beat yourself up over mistakes – learn from them.

Success consists of a series of little daily victories

What is success to you? It is different for each of us. So bear in mind that your version of success is just as valid as anyone else’s. The best chance of success occurs when our goals or dreams are aligned with our purpose.

Once you’ve worked out what success is for you, recognise that you have some wins and learning experiences along the way. Focus on your dream, do more of what’s working and less of what’s not, stay committed to the dream and never give up, and remember success may be one more phone call away, or one meeting away, or one more day away … who knows how close or far it is?

When you reach your goal, you need to celebrate your wins. That reinforces to your subconscious that you deserve more success! Life is meant to be fun so enjoy the journey and contribute to others along the way. These blogs, for example, are part of my contribution.
