“Positive thinking will let you do everything better than negative thinking will.” – Zig Ziglar
Key element number 2 in achieving your goals is that your goals must be meaningful. Are you willing to do whatever it takes to achieve your goal? In other words, are you willing to give your total commitment to achieving your goals?
If you want a chance at achieving your goals you need to write them down. When you do write them down ask yourself what is really important to you. Why are you doing this and what are you prepared to give up to succeed. Another good question to ask yourself is what will be the benefits to you when you achieve your goals.
Asking yourself these questions and writing down the answers, is a big step in helping you get clear on your path to success. Once you are clear in what you want, it will be easier to create your plan of action. With a plan of action you will have a why to every one of your days.
You can take this one step further and make a dream board. Find pictures that represent the goals you wish to achieve. Paste them on a cardboard and place this dream board where you can see it every day. Visualizing your goals help keep you positive and on track even on the days you really don’t feel like it.
