Have you thought about what is important to you? Can you see yourself having or being more in your life but you keep putting it off? Then, you must first grasp the importance of changing the way you think to have the life you dream of.
If you have a passion to do something great in life and you have the desire to pursue it, then this post is for you. You will discover why your mindset has to change, what it takes to change your mindset and how your changed mindset will allow you to achieve your goals.
Connection Between Your Mindset and Achieving Goals
Your mindset has to change in order to achieve your goals. What you set out to do must be clear and precise. You must start with what you want and then work on why and how to reach the goal(s) you desire. Set specific goals by dreaming and focusing on what you want to achieve.
Think about what you want or where you want to be and write them down. You are creating a visual for you to see. Hang it up and read it every day. Because our actions are controlled by our subconscious mind, reading these goals daily will eventually help you to see your goal more clearly and you will start to create a plan.
Have you ever heard that if you stick with something for 3 weeks it will become a part of you or your routine? For 21 days, do one thing that will help you toward your goal and see how much you can get accomplished.
Take Action to Achieve Your Goal
First things first, determine what your goals are. To achieve a goal, you must:
• Visualize it- Know what you want
• Believe it- Have confidence that you can have it
• Desire it- You can’t see yourself without it
• Seek it- Take advantage of all the resources available to you
• Accept that you can have it- don’t let self-doubt hold you back
When you close your eyes can you see your goal? What are the obstacles you feel are standing in your way? How can you remove these obstacles? What else do you think is holding you back?
Think about these questions and write down everything that comes to your mind. When you’re done, jot down how you can come up with a solution to each obstacle.
“Inside every life problem there is a secret opportunity. When you can find the opportunity, the problem becomes solvable.” – Mark Peysha
It doesn’t matter where you came from, it matters where you are going and the choices you make to get there. Think about what you need to start doing to get to that goal.
Control your mind to control your actions. Our minds consist of the information that is put into them whether from the information we hear or from what we learn. You can control the information that gets implanted into your mind. Make a choice to listen and be involved with positive things.
With that said, think about how you will feel if you were doing something that you desire or are passionate about. Imagine waking you and feeling free to enjoy your life and the things around you. In order to get to this point in your life you must begin with changing the way you think. You must find the WHY to help you rewire or reprogram your brain to take actions towards what you want.
Safety of Your Comfort Zone
Your brain needs you to have a reason to change the way it takes in information that is out of your comfort zone. Find out what your why is for the goal you set because this will drive you to achieve it.
We do things because of habit and this goes back to the subconscious mind where we find ourselves doing the same things day in and day out. In order for us to break our habits, we must step out of the safety of our comfort zones. We must have the desire to override our habits and stop letting fear, anxiety, and the unknown hold us back.
Once you accept this mindset, you can move on to making it happen.
You must want greatness more than anything else. Changing the way you think, will change everything about your life. Whatever you want, starts with your mindset. Change it and you can change YOUR world. You have to want the:
• Everyday ups and downs
• The risks
• The rewards
If you want to enjoy life and experience new things, shift your mindset and you can do anything.
Find your purpose and live it to the fullest!
