To inspire people to achieve their goals and dreams.
Stick with a course of action once you’ve decided on it. This is the difference between success and failure. Repetition matters. Everyone wants to make progress, and there is only one way to do this: put the work in consistently. The goal you are trying to achieve is just an event — something that you cannot totally control or predict. The consistency in your effort is what makes that event a reality.
Have a long-term mindset
Making any real positive change in your life takes time. Results do not come quickly or easily and there will always be setbacks. In order to reach them you need to re-programme your mind to think long-term, so you can push through any short-term pain or plateaus that may impede your progress. Understand the concept of patience, through understanding time’s role in the natural progression and processes of all living things. If you can develop the capacity to understand this you will make great strides in short-circuiting the “I want it now” mentality. While there’s nothing wrong with wanting something to occur faster, it’s important you don’t make that your constant modus operandi.
Have a growth mindset
A growth mindset means believing that your most basic abilities can be developed. Intelligence in anything can be developed. You have a desire to learn and therefore the tendency to embrace challenges, persist in the face of setbacks, see effort as the path to mastery, learn from criticism, and find lessons and inspiration in the success of others. As a result, you can reach higher levels of achievement.
With resilience, you have the ability to properly adapt to stress and adversity. Stress and adversity can come in the shape of family or relationship problems, health problems, or workplace and financial stressors, among others. You demonstrate resilience when you can face difficult experiences and rise above them with ease. Resilience is not a rare ability; in reality it is found in the average individual and it can be learned and developed by virtually anyone.
Believe in yourself
You have to believe that you can! You need to develop an unshakable belief in yourself and the achievements you pursue. Self-doubt and lack of self-belief are your biggest enemies. You need to have an unwavering belief in your abilities and know that your goals will be achieved.
Your passion and your purpose must be greater than your challenges. Passion pushes you one step further. Passion is an emotion that comes from within you. It is your enthusiasm, your zeal, your drive, and your motivation. Your success comes not from what you do, but how well you do it – your passion.
Have a bias for action
Lots of people come up with interesting ideas to pursue, but planning or merely mentioning what one will do is different to taking action on what one would have planned or said they would do. You have to do more than just the talking and planning. Develop a bias for action and you will be more likely to take action immediately or shortly after you generate your ideas. As the old adage goes: “actions speak louder than words”.
