Achieve Any Goal
Three Simple Yet Powerful Techniques For Women
There are many factors that determine the success or failure of achieving your goals, whether for beauty, weight loss, mitigating a health challenge, work timelines, or things dear to you.
1. Set small goals: Don’t make goals that are so big that they become overwhelming and intimidating. Absolutely keep the timelines short. Don’t stretch your goals so far into the future that you lose sight of them and forget about them altogether. Start slow, make short timelines of no more than six weeks to three months, and post them where you can see them daily so you will see how easy it is to accomplish what you set out to do.
That sounds to simple, right? Keep in mind that you cannot make these mental changes overnight. For example, if today I ask you to avoid eating junk foods altogether, will you be able to follow my advice? You will probably try hard to avoid junk foods for a day or two, and by doing that, you will be all the more tempted to take a bite of your favorite fatty foods. As a result, you’ll end up gaining more pounds than what you started with.
Thus, here is an easier way to do it: instead of trying to cut down on your junk food intake entirely, try to replace one junk food with one good food. Do you eat butter? Well, replace that with olive oil. Next day, replace meat burgers with plant-based burgers. Small changes with shorter timelines helps and makes shifting how you do things to accomplish your goals easier.
You won’t be able to accomplish all the changes you want to make overnight, but you will be able to achieve your goals if you do it slowly, bit by bit.
2: Replace bad habits with the good ones: Breaking an old habit is easier said than done. Modify bad habits enough so that it becomes a good and healthy sustainable habit. For example, if your goal is to save $5,000 the habit of saving monthly will help you achieve that goal. On the flip side, the habit of spending money recklessly on breakfast, lunch, and dinner every day at a restaurant will take away from your savings goals and health goals at the same time.
3: Get rid of temptations: Unless you learn to control your temptations your success will be fleeting or lost. Depending upon the temptation, it can be very overwhelming – ask Eve! Whenever you are tempted stop and give yourself 5-30 minutes to ponder the pros and cons of your decision before you act. Practice the art of being mindful of yourself.
