The human mind is a very powerful tool in achieving your goals. Whether it be minor every day goals or major goal life goals and dreams. Dreaming big and having an idea of what you want is great but it is not enough.
To accomplish anything great you got to have a clear and well defined goal in mind and a plan to go along with it.
How do you do that?
First you have to think about what you want to accomplish or gain. Remember every idea and thought has the potential to become something real. Because of someones idea you are able to read my blog right now. Something to think about.
After deciding what you really want to achieve you need to come up with a plan for action. Decide on what to do first and how to proceed. Achieving your goals requires planning which you need the power of your mind for.
Now that you have a clear goal and a plan in mind next step is to visualize achieving that goal. Visualization is a powerful technique that requires some imagination. If you are having trouble doing it at first don’t worry. Practice makes perfect. High level athletes use creative visualization quite a bit to practice technique in their minds. While I was injured I could not train for almost 6 months but during that time I just kept visualizing techniques. Once I got back in the gym it did not take me too long to get back in the groove of things 🙂
Below is a short video on how to visualize
This will require discipline, patience & persistence.
Motivation is especially important in goal achievement. How can you achieve anything if you’re not motivated enough? Think about your goal, its advantages, the rewards of achieving it. All these things will have a strong emotional impact on your level of motivation.
And lastly, HARD WORK. Now that you have a set goal, a plan on how to achieve that goal the next step is just to work your ass off towards it. Whatever it may be. Good grades, more money, or being a champ. Just put in that work.
