3 Smart & Simple Ways To Achieve Your Goals
STEP 1: BREAK IT DOWN
Anything can be broken down to small action steps that can be completed one little step at a time. In every aspect of life, no matter what your goal, remember that you can take small, doable steps. That’s the way you build a bridge, write a book, lose weight, or change your life–step by step. If you find that you’re not taking them, then either the steps weren’t really doable, or you need to go back and check your motivation.
The more specific your action steps are, and the finer you can break them down into doable increments, the more successful you’re going to be.
STEP 2: PRACTICE PATIENCE
Just remember, everything we want to accomplish takes time, especially when the goal is a profound one. After all, if it didn’t take time and patience, if it could be done at the snap of a finger, then it wouldn’t be as worth it. Achieving good health and an optimum weight is not a concrete goal that can be reached as easily as multiplying two times two, because factors change constantly in our lives; we have to understand that the process is ongoing; it never ends. We’re always fine-tuning and adjusting for circumstances.
Of course, this shift in thinking takes time and patience. Having patience with ourselves make the whole process so much more fun. We aren’t fixated on having something happen immediately. We let it unfold naturally, one step at a time, until eventually we have developed a new habit.
STEP 3: BELIEVE YOU CAN DO IT
You can do it! You have the power! Don’t lose faith, even when you feel you have none to lose. Just keep putting one foot in front of the other, one step at a time.
