6 WAYS to stay on track with your goals.
- MORNING AFFIRMATIONS 0:32
You are 30% more likely to achieve your goals when you write them down. So do that! Write your goals down and visualise how you are going to feel before, during and after you’ve achieved them. This way you are making your goals already a reality on paper and your mind, which makes you more confident to make them happen in reality.
- ACCOUNTABILITY PARTNER 4:15
Share your goals with someone you KNOW is going to hold you accountable. She should regularly ask you for progress, so you keep on track with what you want and are not making internal excuses why you haven’t achieved them yet (no time, money, …).
Best-case scenario: choose someone who knows your area of work and understands what level of commitment it requires to make your goals happen.
- VISION BOARD 5:58
Having your goals visually in front of you when you work, wake up or stroll through your office space is the best way to inspire action. You have troubles to get up early and work on your goals? Hang your vision board opposite your bed! You get distracted and regularly think “Why am I even do this?” – hand it in front of your office. It’s the most fun way of keeping your goals in sight! Who doesn’t love a nice afternoon of doodling?
- DOCUMENT YOUR JOURNEY ONLINE 7:40
You’re probably thinking: I haven’t achieved anything yet, so why should I even talk about it? Well, the reality is often we are more accountable to the outside world than to ourselves. So sharing your journey with others will help you stay accountable to what you promise to achieve. It’s not about creating content on things you’re not an expert in, but rather about documenting the work you are doing to gain that expertise.
Bonus: you might be able to connect to likeminded people, mentors and peers who can help you get to the next step!
- SHARE YOUR DUA LIST WITH SOMEONE 9:18
You are already praying for yourself? Amazing. But know this: praying for others can be even more powerful! When you let them know what you want and ask them to pray sincerely for you, they’ll be happy to be part of your journey.
- MAKE THEM YOUR PHONE BACKGROUND 10:36
Studies show, you look at our phones average 52 times a day and what we look at subconsciously affects us! So instead of looking at your phone and seeing only your screen, try this: change your phone background (wallpaper especially!) so the 3 hours & 15 minutes you spend on your phone every day — you look at least one second of those 52 times at your goals!
