When you’ve written out your desired goals, the next thing is to also ask yourself the number of resources available to you. That will enable you achieve the goals you want to achieve.
You need to accurately, come up with things like enough or accurate amount of finances, enough time you need to invest in your written goals.
And if you intend loosing weight, the number of hours you need to spend at the gym, the diet you need to change into, etc.
These resources needs to be accurately checked and double checked. So that you don’t get stuck along the line. And loose focus because the resources are not there or are very limited.
5. Break your desired goals, into smaller bits.
One of the easiest ways to achieve your goals, is not to bombard yourself with so many goals on your list. That’s why at the beginning of this piece, I mentioned you need to be specific about your goals.
When you are specific, it becomes easier to know the goals that are the most important at the moment. And how to get them done rather than having a whole lot of goals to achieve.
And you become overwhelmed at the end of the day without achieving much or anything.
6. Take a daily step into achieving your desired goals.
Inorder to achieve your desired goals, it’s not enough to do all the above without taking a daily step into achieving it/them.
Remember, you become a product of what you do consistently and daily and not occasionally.
Therefore, endeavour to take a step daily into achieving your goals. By taking a step daily, you’d realize achieving your goals becomes way easier, and much actualizing
7. Make sure you’re making progress
This can be done, when you go over your laid out plans made earlier. And you check each day if you’re making any tangible progress .
Hence,by comparing your results over time, and if it’s positive you’d know you are doing well. And you are on the right track into achieving your desired goals.
But if it’s otherwise, then you’d know you need to re-strategize. And come up with a better plan way solid than the initial plan you had
8. Compliment yourself on your achievements
By complimenting yourself, it would actually propel you to do more. And be more productive towards achieving your goals.
When you don’t compliment yourself, you tend to get tired and loose focus and enthusiasm about your goals.
Therefore, tell yourself you can do this, you can achieve your goals. Because they would make you better and be the best version of yourself as time goes on.
