Do you have many goals in your life? Do you find it hard to stay motivated while pursuing your goals? Whether you want to eat healthier, save money for a home, or start a family, staying on track with your goals can be challenging. There are many obstacles that can hinder or even stop you from achieving your dreams. If it’s hard for you to keep your eyes on the target, don’t worry. Here are three tips on how to stay motivated while pursuing your goals:
Don’t separate your goals from the journey. One of the main reasons people give up on their dreams is because they separate their goals from the process of achieving them. For example, a student who wants to become a nurse might get discouraged while in nursing school. Although they are not a nurse yet, the student should appreciate nursing school as part of the goal. This means they should be in the moment and enjoy all that life has to offer while they are still a student and in the learning process. Dr. Eric Amidi, a quantum physicist and Law of Attraction teacher, agrees. In one of his blog posts the physicist writes that this is in fact one of the keys to manifesting great things in your life.
Don’t analyze your setbacks. Another common reason people fail to reach their goals is because they waste a lot of time analyzing their setbacks. Why did I fall? What happened? How can I avoid falling the second or third time? While it’s important to learn from our mistakes, dwelling on why they happened can actually hinder our success. Instead, consider setbacks as a normal part of the process. Dr. Eric Amid teaches this lesson by using the cat as an example. Although it falls from great heights very often, the cat has learned to land on its feet no matter how it falls. This is because they’ve accepted falling as a normal part of life and don’t waste their time or energy trying to avoid it. In fact, they’ve mastered it.
Accept reality. While it’s healthy to have goals, a major reason people fail to accomplish their goals is because they get too needy. They place their goals, wants, and desires above their own happiness. Unfortunately, when you consider a goal more valuable than your own happiness, you can sometimes make it unreachable. Dr. Eric Amidi suggests doing the opposite. Consider your goals as mere wants, instead of needs. Accept reality for what it is and you will make your goals more attainable.
