Let’s talk about the reason, you know, the reason we do what we do. Everyone has a reason, usually they are linked in with emotion and feeling, even if people won’t admit it.
I would like you to ask yourself this questions:
“Currently I feel…. Because of….”
“What would make me happy is….”
“Achieving my goal would make me feel….”
“To achieve my goal I must….”
What is the last word? Happy, Accomplished, Proud, Worthy? What ever it will be it’s not a bad thing because it will give you purpose. I have found over the years that people don’t want to be honest about why they want to achieve their goal. They tell people what they think they want to hear for the fear of being judged, or that it is wrong to selfishly want something. It isn’t, so long as what you want doesn’t involve causing other people pain or suffering.
Once you’ve asked those questions sit down and write your goals and what behaviour you need to do to achieve said goal, along with how you will feel once you achieve it and how you currently feel. Do this in 300 words or less and put it it a place you will see it everyday to help keep you on track.
Understand how you feel, be honest and gain purpose, focus, perspective and the motivation you need.
A short post today on they one of the keys to success.
It’s quite obvious when you think about it.
Be happy in what you’re doing. Be happy with the choices you make. Just be happy.
I know that there will be times where you will feel less than chipper, but it’s those days where you need to simply sit somewhere quite for 5 min and remember WHY you’re doing what you do, if you’re doing the right thing it will make you feel happy because in the end you know it will all be worth it. However if it doesn’t give you that feeling then ask yourself if you should really be doing what you’re doing.
If you’re happy working 40+ hours weeks because working makes you happy then knock yourself out, but if you’re not happy doing that then don’t do it because in the end you will only grow to resent what you’re doing and that just makes living everyday very very hard.
In the end one of the keys to success that people overlook is to be happy, there is nothing worse than pushing on through all the hard times if in the end it doesn’t make you happy because then it was all for nothing.
Smile, be happy and go be successful.
The hardest part about any ‘diet’ is the psychological aspect.
