You may have heard the phrase “anything is possible if you put your mind to it”, but is it really true? I believe in the wise words of Mr. Henry Ford “whether you think you can or can’t, you’re right”. So if you think you can achieve anything you put your mind to, here a few tips to help you along the way.
- Set a goal - First of all, you need to know what it is you want to achieve in your lifetime. So what’s your #1 goal that would change everything for you? Take time to figure that out, really sit down and don’t do anything else before you’ve decided what you are going to do. Once you’re 100% clear, use the SMART goal setting strategy and begin to work towards your goal as soon as possible.
- Follow people who have already achieved what you want to achieve - When you know exactly what you want to achieve, find others who have already achieved whatever it is that you want to achieve. Whether it is in person, in books, on the Internet or audiobooks find these people interview, read, listen and learn as much as you possible can from them. You may be surprised how willing people are to share their success stories and tips with you (someone who are on the same path they once were). You don’t have to reinvent the wheel, follow their footprints.
- Surround yourself with people who are on the same path as you are - Once you’ve set your goal and found the people who have already achieved what you want to achieve, find people who want to accomplish the same thing. Your environment (in this case relationships) can either make you or break you, so it absolutely vital to find the right people to surround yourself with. You can learn from each other, share ideas, mastermind, help and push each other towards your big common goal.
- Practice a.k.a. doing the thing - Whatever it is you want to achieve you have to do it over and over again. Whether it is to achieve certain grades, get a six pack or build a $1 million business, you have to take action and dedicate your time, focus and effort everyday towards it’s completion. The more you study, practice and work, the better you’ll become and the closer you will get to your goal. Don’t be discourage if you fail, just recognize that it’s a natural things that happens for everyone who is looking to achieve big things in life. Just pick yourself up, dust yourself off and get going.
Now it’s time for you to figure out what you truly want to achieve. And when you, take the first small step today towards it’s completion. It doesn't matter if it is just writing down a plan or making a phone call. Start small, finish big. And good luck!
