8 Tips That Will Bring You Closer to Achieving Your Goals

Stop Comparing

Really stop comparing. We’ve all heard that comparison is the thief of joy. Yet we still do it not realising how much of a distraction it is from actually getting real work done. If you want to be productive towards building your dreams, you have to focus on running your own race.

Seek Out Community

It means everything to find other people pursuing similar goals in your field of interest. You can help one another with ideas, support each other when you feel stuck, and learn from one another’s experiences. Get out there and network and build relationships with people that are striving to be where you want to be and others that are already there.

Help Others Achieve Their Goals

Believe it or not, achieving your goals isn’t all about you. It’s also about how you can serve others with your skills, your products, solutions etc.  Beyond that though, we all have the ability to support others in achieving their goals.  It might be in small ways or big ways, a tip, a website to check out, a book to read, an introduction to someone.  

If we take that little bit of time to help others, we all win.

Create a Plan

Write down your goals.  Creating a blueprint will allow you to know where and how to best spend your time and effort and will keep you on track.  When you write down your goals it will help you stick to them.  And research shows writing goals down makes you more likely to achieve them. 

Break Your Goals Down into Action Steps

Breaking down your goals into the steps that will help you achieve them along with the habits that will support you in achieving those goals will help you stay on track and achieve your goals faster.

One big, ‘I don’t know where to start’ task is a lot more intimidating and less likely to get done than a bite sized, easy to do task.

The smaller the ‘micro action steps’ the easier it will be to achieve. 

Don’t Be Afraid to Start

We often get caught up in other people’s success stories not realising we’re tuning in at about Chapter 10. Life isn’t an Instagram photo.  Achieving anything big or worthwhile takes a lot of sweat and sometimes tears that we never see from those who have come before us. 

Starting isn’t easy, there’s a long and daunting road ahead but it’s the only way forward. 

So, once you have a plan, just start, even with just one tiny step!

Stay Productive and Not Busy

There are a million things to busy ourselves with over the course of the day. But the key to achieving goals is learning how to most effectively use the time you have to produce maximum results. Be smart with your time and create systems and processes that will help you get more done in less time.

Timing is Everything – Even if it’s not YOUR timing

We want things when we want them, but true success is where preparation meets opportunity. You are never too old or too young to reach for your dreams. Just know that it will take your diligence and a bit of patience to get to where you want to be.
