Have you kept your goals so far this year? If you haven’t, don’t beat yourself up about it because many people by this time haven’t kept theirs. If you haven’t kept your goals but you still want to get them accomplished then it’s time to do a vision check. This is an important step to keeping yourself on track.
1. The Clear Picture
Do you have the clear picture in your mind of what your accomplished goal will look and feel like? This picture needs to have a lot of detail, paying close attention to the emotions you will experience when the goal is accomplished. Many people leave out this step and the result is that their goal isn’t real to them so it’s easy for them to be distracted by their everyday lives. This step can take some time and thought which is why some do not do it. Don’t be this person, get a clear picture of what you’re trying to accomplish and how you will reach that goal. Getting this clear picture is critical to achieving your goal.
2. Be Inspired
Does your goal inspire you? Does just thinking about your goal make you smile? If the answer is no, then you need to go back to step one and change it until you’re excited about it. All goals take effort. Goals require us to change and do things that stretch us. If your goal is not something you really want, then why are you going to bother achieving it?
When you have a goal, never limit yourself by what you believe you can accomplish. Decided for yourself what you truly desire. Many people achieve great success in life just from having big goals. When you’re inspired enough by the dream, you’ll find any way to make it real.
3. Maintain the Belief
Do you have a way of maintaining the belief that you’ll reach your goal? If somewhere in your mind you really believe that you can’t reach the goal, then you probably never will. It can take a lot of courage to believe, when faced with opposite evidence, that you can be successful. Problems will come up and things will go wrong but that is when you have to maintain your belief. You can make it through the hard times if you believe you can. People will rise to the level of their beliefs. When you truly believe that you’ll be successful, then you’ll be a success.
4. Never Give Up Attitude
Do you have this type of attitude? Have you decided that you are not going to quit no matter how much time it takes to accomplish your goal? If you do not have this type of attitude then you are going to find all the obstacles overwhelming. They may be too hard for you to overcome and there is a very strong possibility that you’ll quit long before reaching your goal. However, when you have the never give up attitude, there is a conviction and power within you that will pick you up and carry you through until you have reached your goal.
So, if your goal is a bit fuzzy, do not worry. By following these four steps you will start to clearly see your goal all the way to completion and you will experience all the satisfaction and joy that come with accomplishing a goal.
