There´s no way you can achieve something if you don´t work for it. I don´t know how many times I´ve hears people saying that they´re working on visualization and affirmations to achieve their goals but that´s the only thing they´re doing, they are not taking any action to actually achieve their goals. There´s always something you need to every single day that will get you closer to your goal.
Visualizing is just part of attracting or achieving any goal, the other part is hard work you need to work hard and smart. There´s no reason to work hard, to put all the time and effort needed if you are not doing the right thing, you need to make sure that what you are doing is getting you closer to your goal and not farther, this can be tricky to find out because there´ll be times when the results or progress won´t show you what you want to see but that doesn´t mean that the program or the plan is wrong.
Once you have a plan or program and you start working on it with time you´ll see that you need to modify it and make some adjustments along the way. This doesn´t mean that the program or plan doesn´t work, as you make progress you need to adjust the plan as much as needed to keep making progress, along the way there´ll be times when you see that you are going the wrong path so you adjust the plan to keep straight to your goal. It doesn´t matter what your goal is you´ll always have to adjust the plan, success is never a straight line.
When you set a goal you need to take action and this is the hardest part if there´s something different we need to do it will take a tone of will power to get up and do what we need to do, making different choices get you out of your comfort zone so your mind will fight you back, those new choices feel uncomfortable so it will try everything possible to get you back to your old habits by sending all kind of reasons and excuses why you don´t need to take action.
If you have strong will power to get up and do what you need to do if in the first week you don´t see any progress your mind starts playing tricks with you again with thoughts like “I told you you won´t achieve it”, “I told you you weren´t good enough”, etc; so you give up.
This are the biggest reasons why most people don´t achieve their goal.
You need to take action every single day, work hard, work smart and do it for as long as you need to do it until you hit your target. Patience, discipline and perseverance are key and since we are living in a fast paced time where we can have almost everything instantly we want to see results instantly so having the patience and discipline to work hard every day over and over may get you frustrated.
Here is where having the right mindset comes into play, is not easy to work hard and smart for weeks or months, having the right mindset is what keeps you going when things get tough, that success mindset is what keeps you going so you need to train your mind the same way you train your body. The way to get your mind focus on your goal is by having a strong reason why you want to achieve that goal.
Those your why is strong enough to motivate and you get up? are you willing to put the time and effort needed for as long as you need to achieve your goal? The journey is long and though but it is worth it, not everyone is willing to pay the price but nothing gives you more reward than achieving your goal and knowing that you are capable of achieving great things as long as you are willing to work hard of them. Nothings beats action, the one who take action every single day are the successful ones. You can be one of them if you take action now.
