Nose to the grindstone, working your fingers to a nub? Nah. Do it the way that works!
Looking back on my life, I can clearly see how I made things happen. How I reached my ultimate goals. They all have a few key things in common; and that clues me in on exactly what needs to happen in order to reach your goals. ANY goals. First and foremost, you must decide that your goal is what you want - no matter what. In other words, you've got to decide that you are going to reach that goal come hell or high water. Second, sit down and come up with your plan. What are you going to do to reach your goal? This is the part most people do already when they have a goal. You also have to work that plan. Stay on track. Do whatever you need to do. Third, act, speak, and think like your goal is already happening. Some people say to, "act as if". That has gotten too murky over the years. Instead, you've got to feel yourself on the path that IS taking you to your goal. Let people know what you're doing and show no hesitation about doing so. If they are downers, screw 'em. You know what you want, you know what you're doing to get there, you know the goal is yours. Fourth, see your goal as already happening. That's right - visualize. Visualize yourself living in that new house, wearing smaller clothes, looking at your HUGE bank balance... see it, feel it, hear it, touch it, taste it! You don't even need to visualize for long each day. Five minutes will be plenty. But do it daily. Bonus Tip: If (and when) doubts start to creep in, remind yourself that you are here to create the exact life you want! You have every bit of ability you need in order to reach your goal; or else you wouldn't have been able to conceive the goal in the first place. If the negative feelings persist, go for a walk, dance, do anything that will raise your energy. YOU GOT THIS!
