Have you got a goal you are working towards?
Do you have days where you feel like so many things are standing in your way when it comes to making those goals a reality?
When you are working towards a goal or goals, you will always encounter obstacles that will try to stop you or make it a little harder to reach your goals. You may experience resistance from every day life as well as yourself when it comes to motivation. This is normal. We can’t all be motivated 100% of the time.
Working towards your goals is similar to working on a skill. If you take time to work at it everyday, you will get better and better and you will eventually get closer to reaching your goals. You need to make sure you are doing something every day that will bring you closer to your goals.
Attributes that will help bring you closer to reaching your goals?
1. Work Ethic
You need to have a good sense of work ethic when it comes to working towards your goal. How much time are you willing to spend on building your skill and working towards reaching your goal? As you know, what you put in is what you get out. You need to be willing to put in the extra hours in order to achieve what you are working towards. If you have two people who are working towards the same goal but the one person is getting up 4 am every morning to work towards their goal and the other person is getting up at 7 am. Who do you think will reach their goal quicker? The person getting up earlier will.
Having a strong desire to achieve something will be the fuel you need to get up every morning and work towards reaching your goal. It will be that fuel that gets you up at 4 am every morning to work towards reaching your goal and its that something that will help push you when you have those days where you aren’t feeling motivated. Having ambition constantly reminds you that you can be better and you can do better.
Discipline is something you need to work at every single day. You will have your days where you really do not want to get up and get things done. This is where discipline steps in. Discipline is what gets you out of bed when you really don’t have the motivation to get out of bed. Discipline is there to help you do what needs to be done, even if you don’t want to do it.
Where do your priorities lie? What is important to you. Is working towards your goals a priority? Are you working towards making it a reality every day? Making your goals a priority is an important step in order to reach them. You need to put the time and effort into making those goal a reality.
Nothing is impossible. If you are passionate about something and you believe in yourself, you can achieve it. All you need to do is put your head down and work towards it every single day.
Believe in yourself, you can do anything you put your mind to.
