6 simple steps towards achieving your goal

Every day that goes by, you either move closer towards achieving a goal or you move further away from that goal. If you do nothing you are moving away from the goal. Following these steps will guarantee that you will move towards your goal each day.

1. Gain a Clear Picture of What You Want to Achieve

You can’t move towards a goal unless you have a clear idea about what that goal is. This picture must be specific. You can’t simply state that you want “a better job”; rather you must clearly picture what that job will be and why it will be better.

2. Spend Time Visualizing Your Success

Get as detailed a picture as possible in your mind, even taking the time to write down your goals in significant detail. Whenever you find yourself getting discouraged, go somewhere quiet for a little while and use that time to visualize success in your endeavors.

3. Associate Immense Pleasure with Achieving Your Goal

Consider how you will feel when succeed. What will it be like? How much joy will you have? How will you celebrate? Make the level of pleasure as deep and realistic as possible.

4. Associate Intense Pain with the Idea of Failure

What are the pains associated with not achieving your goals? What will you NOT have? What will it look like to those around you? How will you feel about yourself?

5. Focus on Doing Something Important Each Day towards Your Reaching Your Goals

You need to do something every day from this list. That means even on days when you are busy with other things, tired, or when unexpected things fill your time, you need to find someway to do something that helps you move forward. Even if it is a simple act it will help you keep your personal momentum moving in the right direction.

6. Keep Your Goal at the Forefront of Your Mind

Not only do you need to have a clear picture in your mind about what you would like to achieve in your goal, you also need to keep that goal at the front of your mind.
