Setting goals sounds great until you have to try to accomplish them. I used to picture myself getting my dream body in the gym for six months; I even purchased some gym wear. However, when it came to going to the gym, my body told me, “Relax, you’re fine.” LOL. Then, the following week, I guilt-tripped myself for skipping the gym the previous week.
You are not a failure if you have trouble achieving your goals. You’re just not setting attainable goals. Simply establish weekly goals first.
Weekly goals can be a lot easier because they can be less strict. For instance, if you want to write a book, you could start by deciding how many pages you want to write each week.
Here are premium steps to achieve your weekly goals consistently:
What does success mean to you? It would help if you did not judge your success by the standards of others. Nobody ever starts at the top; there are always baby steps. You must understand that you will not be able to achieve Johnson’s summer body in one week. He might have worked on it for three years. When you fail, you label yourself a failure. No. Find new ways to define success while celebrating your little victories.
Focus on making one decision
They say you can choose to live a completely different life anytime. Just concentrate on making one decision at a time. Maybe you can start dieting before you go to the gym if you want to lose weight. The sudden decision to stop eating everything you used to, going to the gym, that morning run, etc., will wear you out. Concentrate on making one decision right now that will help you get closer to your objective.
Never give up
I know what you’re thinking. Don’t worry; it happens to the best of us. However, the truth is that the goals we eventually achieve are often the result of both hard work and failure.
Don’t give up if you don’t meet your goals for this week. We learn from our mistakes. Recognize what happened and what did not. Consider doing things differently.
Save time on the right things
Ticking off items on the priority checklist is always beneficial. Choose what needs to be taken care of first and attend to it. Don’t waste time fishing when there is an antelope hunt. You don’t have to waste valuable time shopping at the market when you can quickly get what you need here. It will be delivered right to you without hassles.
I’m telling you all this because it worked and still works for me. I successfully started going to the gym in February (winks). A wise man once said, “Whether you think you can or you think you can’t—you’re right.”
Now, go ye and win this week!
