So now you have your goal you need to know how to achieve it, read on.
It’s all about the steps…
You will have heard of baby steps – well that’s what we are going to be taking, eventually.
4) LOOK AT THE BIGGER PICTURE
I always think that getting the grand design in mind first helps you see the smaller steps that it takes to build the picture. Never lose sight of the GOAL but you must know how you will get there. Think about the achievements you will make on your way to the final goal.
Write a list of them (in the special Notebook you have already invested in) then consider what steps you will need to take to reach each one of these.
5) BABY STEPS
Break down your goal into smaller steps, by thinking about what you have to do to achieve each big step. What do you need to do to achieve target? Write them down.
Find the place you will start, focus on it – see yourself already achieving it and GO FOR IT!
7) BUMPS IN THE ROAD
There will be some (probably) that is life. So what if you get stuck? Don’t PANIC!
Step back from it and assess what is going wrong, work out what it is you need to do to move forward and do just that MOVE ON! When life sends you treacle – wade! It may take some time and lots of energy but you WILL GET THERE! If being successful was easy we would all be a lot more successful and there would be far more competition in the world.
8) HANG THE BIG PICTURE ON YOUR WALL
Keep imagining how it will feel to achieve your goal. Imagine yourself already succeeding. Keep that big picture in mind all the time – your final goal and you will discover a compelling force that pushes you onto wanting to achieve it.
9) DON’T GIVE UP!
You will know this phrase – If at first you don’t succeed, try, try, try again!
Well there is a reason why the word TRY is repeated – it’s not a typo, KEEP GOING!
Remember that you have a life beyond this dream and the busier that life is the more self-discipline you will need to continue achieving your baby steps and ultimately the goal. YOU HAVE A LIFE – are the key words here, don’t let the rest of your life fall by the wayside as you strive to achieve your goal. That would be messy!
GO FOR IT!
