“If you think you can as if you think you can’t, you’re right.” The key is to believe. How much confidence do you have in yourself?
Many question the reason why they are not successful in life. The question is, whether you like it or not, you are the only person responsible for your stagnation and failure.
The big difference between these points named above is the energy that you put into each goal to achieve it. However, there are also some details that you tend to neglect or that you purposely chose to ignore. These are:
-Blame others for failures.
– Paralyze in the face of the uncertainty of a situation that cannot be controlled.
– Criticize yourself strongly, to the point of losing faith in yourself.
The good news is that you have the power to both succeed and fail, and decide to stand up or give up. To achieve this and get the success you are looking for, you just have to change some things that you are not doing well. Start now and you will see that with a little effort and the help of these 7 tips you will be able to achieve the goals you set for yourself in life.
1 Seek that your dreams are achievable
One of the most common mistakes people make is having dreams, and sticking with them without taking action. It is not bad to dream of being millionaires, the bad thing is not to make an effort to be one. The history of humanity is full of people who, without having resources, reached their goal.
Dreaming big is not bad, the bad thing is not acting to achieve it. To take action what you can do is look for inspiration in the stories of the people who have already achieved thegoal that you long for, maybe not the same, but a similar one.
The steps to follow are:
1 Follow his example and start setting short, medium and long term goals
2 To those goals, give them a fulfillment date
3 Strive in each step, for this you require will
2 One task at a time
Some people can’t to concentrateon one goal at a time. For example, they want to finish their university degrees and get married, all at the same time.
What happens with this is that you end up not knowing what you are doing and which of the two things is relevant at that moment for you.
You can meet both goals, but first focus on reaching one to move on to dedicating time to the other. When you do, you are telling yourself that both are important and need the same amount of attention to be fully accomplished.
3 Be consistent
Let’s continue with the example of being a millionaire. Suppose you have already set your maximum goal and have divided them into small goals to achieve, for example, finish your studies and start a small business that gives you income.
In one semester you finish your degree and you plan to apply for a loan to start your business; However, you graduated and got the loan, but somewhere along the way you decided that you’d better not put the business in, but that you wanted to buy a car and go to the gym because it turns out that you left very tired from studying and “enslaving” yourself in a company not your thing at the moment.
This is how, instead of the business that you had planned in the middle of your professional studies, you begin to “give yourself a good life” without having the resources to pay for the loan. Result: debt, failure and regret.
Focuson your goal and ignore all distractors. You are going to find hundreds of these along the way and you are going to have to do a lot of your part to ignore them and move forward in reaching the greater goal that you have set for yourself.
4 Take responsibility
You must assume responsibility for everything that depends on you, it is the only way to deserve the successes that come to your life.
You failed because you did not put all the will that was required to achieve something, you used money you had for a certain thing on an unnecessary walk, you argued with your family for lack of honesty; always, whatever the situation assumes theresponsibilityof your actions, that will make you mature and prepare you for the difficulties that may come into your life.
Reaching dreams was never easy, but those who achieved what they set out to do were able to realize that if they stumbled along the way, it was only the effect of their actions and no one else.
5 Don’t let lack of support take you down
Things as they are; you will find people who believe in you and others who will only criticize you or turn their back on you. That doesn’t matter, you go ahead and rely on whoever does trust you. To those who only harm you, show them that they are not right and continue in your endeavor.
Focus on your goal and at times that require an emotional boost, turn to those who trust your strength.
6 Be your best friend, have faith in yourself
It is important to have a kind of external group that “cheers on you” and helps you recharge your batteries to move on, but ultimately it’s you who has the greatest responsibility for you and your endeavor.
Think only about the aspects that you have in your favor and that are your strengths on which you must support yourself to achieve your goal. If you believe in yourself, there will be no negative word that can destroy you.
Remember: “If you think you can, as if you think you can’t, you’re right”
7 Persevere until you succeed
This is perhaps the most important step, because nothing is achieved if you do not insist again and again on achieving it. Every dream that you strive to achieve requires that you not only have strategies to move forward and solve problems, you also need faith in yourself and willpower.
If you do not have these qualities you can always develop them until they become strengths and in the end you achieve what you dreamed of so much.
Think today of something you have always wanted, no matter how old or how far in time this may be, you already have it fixed in your mind and this idea has begun to act; Now just make a plan, follow it, and put willpower into it. Things only depend on you. Believe and you will achieve it.
