Are you struggling to stay motivated on your journey to success? Have your goals lost some of the shine they had when you first set them? If so, you might consider whether those goals are big enough to hold your interest.
You may have thought so at one time, but if your goals are not what you really want deep down inside, you’re probably trying to force yourself to settle for what you think you can get rather than what you really want.
Believe it or not, there may be a very simple, yet counterintuitive, solution to this problem! Here it is…
Aim Higher to reach your goals!
Start thinking about goals that are so big and impressive that it scares you. Choose goals that seems almost impossible, but have the potential to dramatically change your life if you were able to achieve them.
Having really big goals raises the bar on what you believe is possible and in doing so; it also pushes back the self-imposed limits that sometimes hold us back. By allowing yourself to settle for mediocrity, you only stifle our true creative ability. What I am suggesting is that you unleash your creativity and resourcefulness, and set some really big goals so you can amaze yourself.
Would bigger goals get your motivational fire burning?
If so, take some time right now to clarify some goals that will stretch your abilities. Write them out in detail and sketch out a plan of action to get you started. List as many reasons as possible why you believe you can accomplish these goals – and be specific! Think about your past accomplishments and what it took to achieve them. What kept you going? How badly did you want it, and what were you willing to do to achieve it?
I believe that the power and motivation to accomplish amazing things lives within each and every one of us. The real question is not so much can you do it? The real question is this: Are you willing to set some outrageous goals, and dig down deep to gather the inner resources needed to actually make something amazing happen? You have the ability, will you use it to aim higher and reach your goals?
