Staying on track to reach your goals sounds good in theory but when it time to take action your commitment to those goals are challenged.
To increase your commitment and give yourself a boost to accomplish your goals create rewards for yourself. When you reach a certain stage reward yourself with time at a pool, a walk in the park, or by going to see a movie.
Rewards don’t gave to be expensive and I personally discourage food rewards but find what makes you happy and use that as an incentive to stay on track and reach your goals.
Having an idea is great, making a plan to bring that idea to life is even better. But, once you get the plan all sketched out how do you stay on track and actually make the great idea a great success?
The first thing you will have to realize is that it’s not going to be a walk in the park. Achieving your goals, will sometimes be an uphill battle and you will have to mentally prepare yourself to push forward. Especially when it seems like you are taking one step forward, and two steps back. Give yourself a pep talk each and every day and think about moments in your life when you overcame a challenge. I encourage you to make a list of 5 things that at one point in your life you thought were impossible to do. After you create that list, you should get an instant boost of confidence because you overcame what was once impossible. In most cases you will find that the challenges you once faced have made you a better person.
Next, week I’ll post another tip related to staying on track. But in the meantime, understand that it is not always going to be easy and you will have to sacrifice blood, sweet, and tears to make your great idea a great success.
