To make sure that you will reach your goal no matter how long it takes, there are certain steps you have to take. The first thing that you have to fully understand… is where you are going. You have to define that goal very clearly. What is it that you really want to achieve?
To help you in setting your goals, it will be best if you fully understand your strengths and weaknesses, and know what your limitations are. You must not be too hard on yourself by wanting something that you don’t have the capacity to attain.
Give yourself credit for trying.
Don’t compare your beginning to someone else’s middle.
Show up. Results don’t matter as much as effort.
Never be ashamed of your early work. It’s proof you showed up.
Aspire to be better–but don’t let perfectionism make you quit.
Practice. Until it hurts.
Define what you want. Compare it to what GOD wants for you. Make adjustments according to GOD’s word and His plan for you.
After you have defined your goals, it will be easier to plan how you are going to get where you want to go. But before you get serious with that, you have to analyze your current situation. Are you happy with where you are? Because if you are, maybe you should rethink why you would want to go on a different path?
Sometimes, people become too comfortable being in the zone where they are not required to excel. That should not be the case. This only means that you are no longer allowing yourself to grow. And when that happens, you may lose track of the goals that you have set out to achieve in the first place. But, you can afford to lose focus, especially when you have so much to do in so little time.
