If you know me, you know I’m always going to keep it 100 with you, my friend! And the truth is… ACHIEVING YOUR GOALS IS HARD WORK!
Sometimes it can be easy to get frustrated, overwhelmed or even feel unmotivated, especially if you are working on a longer-term goal. This is why it’s important to cultivate the habit of rewarding yourself for reaching milestones along the way. Here’s four methods behind an increase in my income:
The first thing I did is promise myself that I would celebrate each milestone – no matter how small or large they may be. You don’t have to be hard on yourself to meet a goal. In fact, being kind to yourself while staying focused and committed is a better way to ensure success. So, put a little fun back into the process of self-discipline and self-control by building in a reward system along the milestones of your goal. Treat yourself for your hard work and dedication!
Number 2 – Identify and study your past successes and achievements. I can promise you there’s some synergy there. Keep looking and you’ll find it. Recall the various steps you took to achieve previous goals. Go over the approaches you used, the strategies you employed, and carefully analyze how everything came together. Recall all of these accomplishments and acknowledge the fact that you’ve been successful many times before – and put them back into practice AGAIN!
After doing that, take the time to mentally or physically outline your consistent accomplishments and the skills that have brought you to this present moment and put them back into practice again and again (Number 3). That will create an awareness of how small, consistent daily actions have been a catalyst for the achievement of your bigger goals.
When you finally succeed, take time to turn those successful outlines into processes and MONETIZE THEM (Number 4).
Don’t forget to treat yourself in style. Arrange a special outing or buy something special that you’ve wanted for a long time. Having rewards in mind when struggling to pursue your goals will keep you motivated every step of the way.
