OK, so the key thing here is we already know what we don’t want, don’t like and don’t enjoy. So perhaps we should try flipping that over which will give us some guidance as to what we DO want?
Try writing down a list of what you don’t want and in a second column list the opposites ie. what you would be happy with, really happy with! This is just a starting point but boy doesn’t it get us thinking?!
So from here, you can slot your DO list into the six different areas of our lives: physical (health, movement), intellectual (reading, listening, studying), creative (making/creating things), emotional (sharing, laughing, crying), social (parties, outings) and spiritual (enjoying beauty, nature, religion or meditation).
Once you’ve done that it’s fair to say, you will have a list of what you want to achieve in the next 6 months or so …
2. Make a serious commitment!
You have to be very clear about your goals, but equally you have to BELIEVE you can ACHIEVE them. Without belief it will be very difficult to make progress. If you give yourself any reason to doubt your ability to achieve the goal, it will be so much harder for you to do so. It takes a positive mind-set and clear resolve to get ‘in the right zone’, if there are any doubts, you’ll need to identify them and take action to eliminate them before you can progress.
3. Change your beliefs!
We are not born with our beliefs, they grow within us from the people around us, but we can change them, for sure. Ask yourself, what would you do differently if you knew you couldn’t fail? Now that’s what I’m talking about!
4. Get out of your comfort zone!
How many times have you heard me saying this?! It’s so important that you feel fear, or nervousness or something, because then we know it means something! Yes, getting out of your comfort zone is scary but, do you want the goal or not? That’s what it comes down to. So chose something that takes you out of your comfort zone and watch out for great results!
5. Do it!
You have nothing to lose. You’ve done the research, this is it. This is what you want and you have to seize the opportunity with all your might and go for it step by step, bit by bit, you will build up to your end goal and BOOM!!
