Simple Steps To Do Anything You Want to do
Define your goals.
Make your goals very specific. Write down exactly what you want no matter how crazy it may seem.
Decide how bad you want it.
Now that you have your goals, decide how badly you want it. Things are going to get tough sometimes so you need to really love it. When you’re having a bad day and don’t want to do what you need to do will the thought of the outcome you’re working towards be enough to motivate you? Don’t waste time start on a path to something you don’t really want that bad.
Create your plan of action and break it down into steps.
If your goal is to lose weight and be healthy you need a plan. Where are you going to workout? Do you need to join a gym? When will you workout? Write it on your schedule. What healthy foods do you need to have in your house? When are you going to go shopping for them? What unhealthy things do you need to get rid of? Plan every step and then DO THE STEPS.
Focus on each part of your plan.
Stay focused! Don’t half ass anything. Using the fitness goal, when you’re doing your workouts focus your workout. When you’re out shopping for healthy foods take a list and stick to the list.
Be consistent and persistent.
Consistency and persistence are key. There will be days you don’t feel like doing what you need to do. There will be days where you feel like you’re getting nowhere and you’ll question why you’re even doing it. Push through that! Do what you need to do everyday no matter what. Sometimes the journey is tough, but the outcome is worth it (assuming you did step 2).
Visualize yourself having reached your goal.
Spend some time every day or every other day visualizing your life once you’ve reached your goal. How will you feel? Take time to focus on how great you’re going to feel. The long term pay off is pretty much always better than the instant gratification you feel you need in a given moment.
