No matter how large or small your goal may be, it’s key to go in with a plan.
How will you get from point A to point B? How will you motivate yourself to reach the finish line?
Here are a few strategies to keep in mind before you get started.
Focus on the Progress
You may think that the end result is the most important thing.
That is not always the case. It’s actually the steps you take.
Even though your day to day actions may feel insignificant at the moment, they do add up.
Let’s say your goal is to earn an extra $50 this month from your side hustle.
However, at the end of the month, you only earned an extra $45.
If you did everything you could and feel proud, you did reach your goal.
Before you even get started, don’t be afraid to visualize what your life will be like, once you accomplish that goal.
Several studies show that visualization can connect the brain’s intentions to the body. If you can dream it, you can do it.
Keep it Visible
Writing down your goals can help them feel more real. After you write your goal down, don’t toss that piece of paper away. Instead, keep it somewhere visible. Something you look at every single day.
Doing so, will keep you motivated and in the game.
