Sticking to your goals is not always easy. It can be very tempting to give up and stay where you are… but this is not what you really want for yourself! Part of setting worthwhile goals and sticking to them is that this process allows you to grow as a person. If you give up and go back to the way you were before, then you are not going to have the peace of mind and confidence that comes from KNOWING that you can achieve your true potential in life! Maybe your goals are business related, or maybe they are personal. Regardless of what they are, they MUST be important to you…so why give up on them? Life is what you make of it, and achieving goals is one way to shape your life on YOUR terms. Your dreams are something that nobody can take from you, which is why sticking to them is SO important! The 6 tips for helping you to stick to your goals that I’m about to review with you are simple to understand, and they can help you with even the most complex goals that might be in your game plan! 1… Find a Solution The first key to sticking with your goals is to find a solution whenever a problem or an obstacle presents itself. It can be very tempting to give up when faced with obstacles, but what you NEED to remember is that obstacles are a part of life. You may never have a goal that does not lead you through some challenges before you see it through. Having the strength of mind that it takes to find a solution, regardless of how big the problem is, is exactly what you need if you want to stay focused, so you don’t give up. 2… Anticipate Problems Try to think ahead to problems that could arise as you pursue your goals. Getting blindsided by a problem is always worse than dealing with a problem that you saw coming, which is why learning to anticipate is going to be very helpful if you want to avoid the discouragement that comes from being pelted with problems that appeared out of nowhere. Learn to look ahead and plan for problems that may or may not come your way. One method that works great for this is to sit down and list all of the possible obstacles that you might face as you achieve that goal. For every goal that you set, take some time to brainstorm where things could go wrong as you pursue it. Think about how setbacks could occur, and think about what problems they would cause you. If you have done your best to brainstorm any potential setbacks BEFOREHAND, then you will not be as surprised when a few problems do come up, and you will have already thought about how you might be able to handle them. 3… Learn From Mistakes and Failures When you encounter setbacks, failures, or mistakes as you work towards your goals, it can be very easy to entertain the thought of giving up. Remember, however, that this should never be an option for you! Setbacks and mistakes are GOING to happen. What is important is that you view them as learning opportunities instead of as problems. In a way, every setback or failure can teach you something. Remember to look for LESSONS when you face problems instead of discouragement. By keeping this in mind, you will learn that problems and challenges are a natural part of learning and sticking to your goals. 4… Recognize that Setbacks WILL Happen A lot of people get discouraged when they face actual setbacks. Setbacks can seem like a huge waste of time, but it is important to remember that NO plan is going to be absolutely perfect. Even if your plan is as perfect as it can be, it is STILL subject to life and unexpected things that happen on a daily basis. When you do face setbacks and feel as if you have moved backwards, remember that sticking to goals involves a ‘two steps forward, one step back’ mentality. Remember that making overall forward progress is what you are looking for. Getting discouraged by a bit of backsliding is not going to do you any good, so focus on what it is going to take to catch up, and don’t count these instances against yourself. 5… Remember to Be Flexible No plan is going to go exactly as you wanted it to, so it is important to remember that flexibility is essential to success. Being able to move forward while adapting to your environment could very well mean the difference between victory and defeat as they pertain to the business world. Flexibility is golden when it comes to business. There is far too much competition to be anything other than flexible, especially when it comes to clients who have a lot of options for spending their money. 6… Never Accept Defeat When it comes to sticking to your goals, it is exceptionally important that you do not ever accept defeat as a possibility. When you encounter problems and setbacks, you need to determine within yourself to use them as opportunities. The most successful businesspeople in the entire world have made their fortunes by turning valleys into mountains, and that is EXACTLY what you can do! Even if it seems like sticking to your goals is the most difficult thing in the world to do, it is important to remember that if you DON’T stick with them, you absolutely WILL NOT be as successful as you would like to be. Today, really think about what your goals are, and find it within yourself to make a promise… promise yourself that you WILL NOT stop sticking to your goals, even when it gets difficult.
