Oftentimes we are highly motivated to take a dream to reality or just fulfilling a task that makes us or other people happy. We want to embark on what apparently seems exciting and new. Maintaining consistency is the hard part. Doing it every day until we achieve our goal is tedious and requires a lot of daily dedication and will power to persist. How do we acquire these abilities?
Some of us already have it within inborn. However, others need to cultivate it. Nevertheless, it is achievable. Here are 3 steps to help you out in reaching your final destination without giving up halfway through the effort:
- Keep your goal in mind, despite the distractions. This is a great takeaway. We often do not realize how many thieves of time keeps us from walking forward, towards our dreams. By the time the day is over we almost forgot where we were heading in the morning. If we only keep small reminders, it will help us maintain our goal in mind. We need this routine specially in the beginning, when we are still working on our habits to acquire new ones to succeed. Later, as it becomes second nature to our action plan, we will not need to refer back to those reminders. Think of these reminders as post it notes that will “GPS” your way.
- Say “No” to distractions. Often we are invited to an event, whether it is social or work related, and we feel we need to be there. Our mind makes us believe that this particular party or meeting with someone “important” will help us achieve our goal. It is all a trick of our wavering mind deviating us from our goal – once again. Immediately check the apparent but yet not visible distraction with your goal. If it does not match, say “no” immediately. You will save tons of time and energy that can be used towards your goal for the day. This habit will help you reach sooner to your desired destination. The inner reward of getting there is immeasurable. It feels great to succeed when you have set yourself to something. The finishing line is a great feeling.
- Enjoy each little success, but don´t stay there overtime. Pass on to your next goal with the same dedication and enthusiasm. Add the same or more amount of passion. Think of it as little steps to your most important goal. So there is no time to waste. Much to acquire. So, as you enjoy your successes, keep working with that same energy on your next project until you achieve it again. Some may find this a little stressing as it appears as a lot of work. But, then again, it depends on how quickly you would like to get your life on track. In the beginning you might feel you may have to dedicate more time. As time passes you will be more and more aligned with your dreams, and your walk will feel effortless. The initial stages of any change in habit require that we dedicate 100 times more attention, intention, dedication and passion. Without such intensity, the mind takes over again, trapping us into little games from which it is very hard to come out. This is where my method comes in. I would call it, little recipes to tame the mind, success recipes to tame the mind. Our dream is only possible and enjoyable when the road is smooth. Once the obstacles have been removed, the journey is pleasant. In Search of the Absolute Truth, Bindu Dadlani @bindupowercoach
