If you answer yes to any of the above questions then you are not alone. Many people around the world are suffering the dame fate as you are.
The key to successful goal setting is your ability to motivate yourself and stay motivated until you have created enough internal and external momentum to carry you forward to successful goal-accomplishment!
Most people find it hard to keep themselves motivated enough to stick at it and work for their goals. However, you do not need to be one of them because getting and staying motivated is not as hard as you think. All it takes is a little discipline and some insider secrets!
Here are a few ways to motivate yourself and stay motivated:
Visualize your future success inm as much detaoil as possible. Ensure you put yourself into that mental picture. Then, as best you can, feel the positive emotions that having that goal will bring you. What will you experience when you achieve your goal?
2. Set stepping-stone goals.
Gauge the amount of effort that you will put into your goal activities and divided those into daily, weekly and monthly goals. Remember: a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.
3. Use visual images to help you achieve your smaller, stepping-stone goals.
Just as you created a mental image of your main goal do the same with your smaller goals. Just create a quick image of what it will look like when you achieve it and visualize it for a few moments before you start work on it.
4. Prioritize your tasks.
Assign priority to each stepping-stone goal and do the highest priority goal first. Always finish these goals first as you should have your stepping-stone goals structured so one sets the foundation for the next.
5. Create an affirmation and receipt it daily.
Using affirmations can help keep you motivated and keep the mental image of your goal-achievement strongly in mind.
6. Define your own version of success. Do not let others define success for you.
Go after things that you want not what others want for you or think you should want!
7. Focus on the positive.
Look for the silver-lining in every situation. Focus on what is working not on what you do not have or have not yet achieved.
8. Keep your benefits.
Write down what benefits and movements forward tyou have made on a daily basis (no matter how small) and review them on a weekly basis. This will help keep you motivated as you see how far you have come.
9. Make mistakes.
We learn from our mistakes – they make us who we are and help us to learn how to do it right!
10. Finish what you start.
Where it is humanly possible never walk away and leave a job unfinished. You are more likely to start a fresh project than go over an unfinished one!
11. Train your mind.
Try some self improvement tools like self hypnosis or binaural beats to help you train your subconscious mind for success!
