7 Tips to Stick to Your Goals
Setting a goal is not as difficult as it is to stick to it. There can be thousands of reasons that can distract us easily; however, if you want something, focus is crucial.
Following are a few tips to help you stick to your goals.
1. Prioritize Your Life
That’s how it goes – a perfectly happy family, a lovable significant other, a few honest friends, 6 digit salary, a social project for after-life. You can achieve all of these at a specified time. Therefore, you should be able to prioritize what is the most important thing to do at a particular time. Set targets in relation to time, and this all will be in your fist, sooner.
2. Set Attainable Goals
Yeah I want to be Steve Jobs or Bill Gates immediately after I am done with my college. Sounds great, but is it realistic? Obviously not! Set goals that you can achieve realistically, otherwise you will turn into a depressed soul who thinks themselves to be an utter failure. However, the goals should have some value to offer in order to sustain your personal interest.
3. Plan Ahead and Track Progress
Ever heard of a Gantt chart? You are the manager of your life. Plan ahead and keep a thorough check on what you have achieved so far. Otherwise, there are a lot of chances that you’ll either waste your time on something useless or miss out on important steps.
4. Give Reality Checks to Your Wandering Soul
You cannot just discount all your setbacks. Remind yourself that you have to achieve your target and this needs a lot of hard work and sacrifices. However, a positive outlook is still needed to keep the heart engaged.
5. Go Easy on Yourself
It is extremely important to accept that you are a human being with certain limitations. It is totally okay to fail and to fail again. All you need is to rise back from the ashes and start over with new vigor. We have weaknesses but we have strengths as well. You can build on the later. Remember that!
6. Remind Yourself Why You Wanted It Initially
You have wanted it and you have wanted it bad! This should be your mantra till you have attained your target. You wanted it for a reason. Just stay hooked to that reason and all will end in well.
7. Visualize Success
What can easily kill your motivation for success is the fear that you cannot attain what you desire. We all have monsters under our bed; all we need is to visualize ourselves exterminating them. That’s how you beat fears! Thinking that you have achieved the goal can serve as one of the best ways. Now, don’t get distracted by your daydreams!
