Have you been having trouble achieving specific goals lately? Do you want to quickly learn how to get back on track and get results?
If you are like a lot of others out there right now you are allowing other less important things to slowly creep in and get in the way of accomplishing what you really want. And if that is the case it’s time to do a VISION CHECK.
Think about it.... if you don't check your eyes regularly and make sure they are sharp and focused properly then the things you used to see clearly off in the distance begin to get a little blurry until eventually you lose sight of them.
The same holds true for the goals you set for yourself. If you do not check on your goals regularly and make sure they are in focus and on tract to be accomplished then you can begin to lose sight of them and even forget about them.
So just as it is important to get our eyes checked regularly to assure that we will be able to see clearly, it is equally as important to do a VISION Check to be certain that we can see clearly that our goals are on track.
I'm going to give you 6 Vision Check Hacks To Keep Your Goals Achievable.
1. Vivid Picture
You must create and keep a crystal clear and vivid picture in your imagination as to what your completed goal will look, feel, and sound.
According to the best scientific minds on goal achievement if you want to achieve yours quicker and easier you must add lots of sensory detail, paying particular attention to what emotions you will experience when you have achieved your goal. Many people omit this step or they make a half-hearted attempt at it.
As a result, their completed goal is not real to them so it becomes very easy to lose focus and get distracted by day-to-day events. This step takes time and thought which is why many people don’t do it. However, if you don’t have a clear picture in your mind as to what you are trying to accomplish, how will you ever attain it? Developing a clear, vivid picture is critical if you want to achieve your goal.
Are you inspired by your goal? Does thinking about get you excited and make you smile? If not, then go back to your vivid picture and change it until you are excited about it. Anything worth having is worth working for. If it was easy then everybody would do it. Goals take effort. They often require that we change and do things that may be a stretch for us. If the goal isn’t something you really want in the first place, then why bother trying to achieve it?
When you come up with a goal, don’t limit yourself by what you think you can accomplish. Decide what you truly want. Many people have achieved enormous success in their lives because they had big goals. When you are inspired enough by your dream, you will find a way to make it a reality. Your WHY (motivation) must be bigger than your HOW. If your WHY is bigger than your HOW then nothing can stop you from achieving your goal!
3. Unwavering Belief
Do you have an unwavering belief that you will achieve your goal no matter what? Because I'm going to be real honest with you, if you don’t expect you can accomplish your goal, then you probably won’t.
Sometimes it takes extraordinary courage to believe, in the face of all evidence to the contrary, we will be successful. Things go wrong. Problems come up. It is easy to get discouraged. That is the time when you must have unwavering faith and belief in yourself and your abilities.
You can get through the difficult times if you believe you can. People rise to the level of their own beliefs. When you believe you will be successful, then you will achieve success.
Do you identify yourself as the type of person who can and will achieve your goal now, even though you have not yet achieved it? This is crucial in goal attainment. Now hear me out. If you do not see yourself as the type of person that can achieve the goal you want then you will never achieve it.
You may want to achieve it and you may even attempt to achieve it, but unless you truly identify, see you as the type of person who can and will achieve the goal, you will always come up short. We must begin to identify with the person we want to become. Once or twice each day, visualize the picture of your completed goal in your mind. Live your goal in your imagination and experience all of the wonderful emotions that go with it. As you continue to do this, you will find that your thoughts and behaviors become more aligned with the person you will be when you achieve your goal. Believe you are the person you want to be and your subconscious mind will make it come true. According to your faith it will be given unto you.
Are you observant as to what actions that are taking you closer to your goal and those that are moving you further away? When we create an action plan for our goal, some of the ideas included in it will work and others won’t. After you take a specific action, observe the result. If it is positive, then continue to do it. If you does not get the result you expected then modify it and try again. By being observant about what is working and what isn’t, you can adjust your strategy as needed so you will continue to move closer to your goal.
This is where a lot of "could be" successful entrepreneurs and high achievers drop the ball. They think that if they have a plan and keep focusing on it and moving forward they will get to the finish line. But, if you keep moving forward, in the wrong direction, guess what? You will never reach the finish line. You will run out of gas in the wrong direction.
So pay attention to the results you are getting and if they are not the ones you need to get you to where you want to go, then step back and refocus.
6. Never Give Up Attitude
According to Stanford University, Attitude is more important that education when it comes to success. Actually the results show that success is a staggering 88% is attitude and only 12% education.
So let me ask you, have you adopted a never give up attitude? Have you made a decision that you will not quit no matter what obstacle presents itself to you? If you don’t have this attitude you might find that obstacles overwhelm you. They might be too difficult to overcome and there is a strong likelihood that you will quit before achieving what you want.
However, when you adopt a never give up attitude, there is a power and conviction within you that will carry you through until you reach success.
So if your VISION is fuzzy, don’t worry. By making a few adjustments, you will be able to clearly see your goal to completion and experience all the joy and satisfaction that are part of the package.
