How To Persevere When Start Losing That Bubbly Enthusiasm For Reaching Your Goals
Do you want
At first, you may be highly motivated and looking forward to the challenges you may face.
However, as time passes by, you slowly start losing that bubbly enthusiasm for reaching your goals.
You start allowing yourself to get distracted.
You start missing deadlines you’ve set for yourself.
You start procrastinating and getting lazy.
And finally, you decide to jump ship and just abandon your quest for success thus making all your earlier efforts go to waste.
In the face of numerous obstacles, challenges and temptations that we face on a daily basis, we sometimes get overwhelmed by it all.
Sometimes it’s just easier to say “yes” than to say “no”.
And when we say “yes” to temptations and distractions, we say “no” to our goals.
Saying "no" is one of the most powerful words you can utter if you truly want to succeed.
Saying “no” basically just means you won’t allow yourself to get distracted from reaching your goals.
When it comes to going after your goals, the more stubborn and unrelenting you are, the better your chances of success.
When you put your head down and start working on your goals, you block out all the noise and the shiny objects that may distract you.
When you have your eyes set ahead into the future, you don’t pay attention to the noise that’s doing its best to detract you from your goals.
Self-discipline acts as the bridge between your goals and accomplishments.
When you’ve already imprinted on your mind that you MUST achieve your goal at any cost, then over time doing all the tasks you need to do to achieve your goal becomes second nature to you.
Now, if you decide to just “wing” your goal and go with the flow, or
whatever you think the quickest way to reaching your goals is, then you’re basically leaving your fate to luck.
You must also visualize the process of achieving your goal
Having a constant visible reminder of your goal is a very powerful motivator.
With such a solid plan in place, it’s much easier to stay committed to your goal.
Moreover a visual plan is needed for breaking down your goals into mini-goals as this makes a herculean task seem so much easier.
And every mini-goal achieved makes you feel closer to the prize.
Being stubborn can be a good thing
It’s also important to note the distinction between being committed
and just being interested.
Commitment means you’re willing to see something through to the end.
In terms of reaching your goals, it means doing whatever it takes to reach your goals.
Interest, on the other hand, is just being intrigued by the thought
of possibly achieving something.
It’s like window shopping.
You’re just looking through the glass and appreciating what you see inside but you’re not willing to commit and spend money on any of the stuff they’re selling inside.
If you truly want to succeed with your goals, then you’re going to have to be more than interested...
