It is still early into 2019 and most of us have our goals and new year resolutions written down and excited about them only to get discouraged or unmotivated because things are not going according to plans.These steps have helped me to stick to my goals and achieve them efficiently.These can be apply to any goals.
There are no goals that cannot be achieve if you have the right mindset.Be excited about how to achieve them as you were when setting those goals.
I have learnt that having the right and positive mindset towards my goals and understanding that life happens , there will be challenges on the path to success but would never let that derail or stop me from reaching my goals.
HOW TO ACTUALLY ACHIEVE YOUR GOALS IN 2019 watch the video below and don’t forget to subscribe for weekly videos on Lifestyles, Finance and beauty
All this means is “what exactly is your goal”, we want to be able to define the exact steps to take and do. Say for example
- ‘You want to stay healthy” can be “l will attend exercise classes every Wednesday and Friday at 7am
- “I want to spend more time with the kids”can be “l will go on a road trip with the kids every second Saturday of the month”
One of my goals for 2019 is to stay consistent with my Youtube channel . l now do block recording and edit every Monday and Sunday.l also post twice in the week.
Being precise about your goals helps you break it down easily, clear your mind and focus on the tasks ahead.
WRITE AND BREAK THEM DOWN
In order to be specific, you need to write those goals down .l came across a bullet book at WHSmith “The little Bullet Book Be gorgeously organised” and this journal has been helpful in organising and breaking down my goals. You can use any book or a planner that works for you .You can also use the traditional method too, “create a moodboard” ,putting pictures on it .
BE REALISTIC ABOUT YOUR GOALS
Don’t set a goals that is not realistic for yourself. Be sincere and honest when setting your goals .Take baby steps at a time and even days that we don’t get motivated use your willpower to see you through the day.
I recently started using my google calendar efficiently .It helps me stay focus ,organise and get things done.I schedule everything that concerns me now and l can see changes in my success.When you add your goals to your calendar ,you are most likely able to do them . Trello app is also a great planner that can be downloaded on your phone,Laptop or iPad.
HAVE A MENTOR
Your mentor or support system can be your friend, spouse, cousin or coach.It is great to have someone when the going get tough or when you are feeling unmotivated. You can also join a support group , remember that we should surround ourselves with positive people and we attract people that are like us.
DON’T BE HARD ON YOURSELF
Don’t ever be hard on yourself when you miss a task ,take a deep breath, remember to keep going and put your eyes on the prize.Be grateful for what you’ve achieved so far .
l hope you found these steps useful . You can start now and l believe that you will never look back. Feel free to come back to this post or video for motivation and little boost when you are feeling down.
