“The roots of true achievement
lie in the will
to become the best that you can become”
… Harold Taylor
Do you find yourself repeating behaviors that sabotage your success? Are you ready to put your limiting behavior to rest in favor of a better outlook and greater fulfillment?
You must know what is sabotaging your journey to success. Being aware of these is an important step forward. Thus, the first step to the success you crave is being able to recognize the limiting beliefs that stand in the way of your success. Once you do, you can banish those beliefs in favor of more empowering ones.
In order to achieve big things in your life, you must be willing to think big. You should dream big and envision your goals to make them happen. Achieving your targets and goals is best achieved when you can imagine every detail of what it is you want to achieve.
When you’re busily working toward bringing your goals to life, you also feel happier and more fulfilled in your journey.
In my previous posts, we discussed about Setting New Year Goals and Resolutions, pitfalls to avoid while setting goals and making SMART goals. The next objective would be to plan to achieve these goals that you set.
If the goal you’ve set is worthwhile, expect some resistance. Any significant goal in your life can only be reached by overcoming challenges along the way. At each obstacle along the way, you can choose to either give up or press forward. You will succeed if you resolve to rise to the challenge, instead of sitting on the sidelines of life.
Are you waiting for some magical moment in the future to start enjoying your life? It sounds awful when you think about it, but many people do exactly that. They think, “I’ll be happy when…”
The real question is: Why not now?
You might be stuck at a job you dislike just because it pays you a steady income and you have the promise of a decent retirement. However, the important question is: Do you enjoy your day-to-day life? In this case, strive to make a change right now so that you can enjoy your life, both now and in the future.
Follow Your Dreams.
It’s easy to identify the things you don’t like, or the things you know you don’t want to do with your life. However, you need to focus on what you do want to do. This can be a very difficult step because it’s hard to take risks when you’re not used to doing so.
Spend time figuring out what you want out of life. What’s most important to you? Is it financial security? Is it your family? Chances are these are some of the most important things in your life, but make a list of all items of importance.
Identify the areas of your life that need improvement. Once you’ve figured out what’s most important and what needs changing, you can start to take action. You may not know it, but even without fixing anything, just knowing what needs to be fixed is half the battle.
