The automatic response to this question is time and dedication. Although this is true, some would argue the actual secret to success is taking small steps. You can do this no matter what your current situation, goal or dream is.
When you set your sights on a big goal, it is easy to get overwhelmed and discouraged. However, if you breakdown the goal into smaller, more manageable steps, it becomes much easier to stay on track. Thinking big is important, but it’s the small daily actions that lead to big achievements. By consistently taking small steps toward your goal, you stay focused and committed.
3 ways you can stay organized and devoted is by doing these minor tasks:
- Writing down and prioritizing your top 2-3 tasks for the day.
- Carving out specific time each day to work on/complete those tasks.
- Investing your time in learning, such as joining webinars connected to your passion.
Start miniature. Show up every day. The results will come. Focusing on what you can do in the moment is a mindful approach to developing the best attitude to stay in the fairway and avoid extreme expectations of yourself.
When in doubt, remember this, you cannot start to change your body and energy levels by spending 24 hours in the gym, but rather being consistent with your goals for 24 days. Give yourself that same grace when it comes to whatever dream you wish to achieve. Nelson Mandela once said, “Remember to celebrate milestones as you prepare for the road ahead.” Every milestone is a miniature victory in the road to achieving your goals.
