Does goHere we will talk about expanding personal limits to achieve goals. Everybody of us can reach more if we decide to move on in our desired direction. It does not matter if it is about losing weight, starting to sing, flying to the moon, or getting rid of unwanted habits. Some of the actions require more, others less physical activity and material resources. However, everything starts with our thoughts.
Decide What Kind of Goal You Would Like to Achieve.
We can write down goals on a sheet of paper or a small card to put in the wallet. The Vision board works well. Pick some magazines or newspapers, where is the described situation, desired place, things or people, cut images of them, and place them on board. Whenever you see your desired goal posted on board, it leaves a trace in your subconscious mind. You will think more about it. Suddenly, answers to questions will show in unexpected places. Somebody will give you a book with inspiring ideas. The phrase, written on the truck, or the message in a commercial can spur imagination. It would be great if it can be visualized in your mind too.
Find Every Free Minute to Spend Time Working on Your Goals.
If you work, listen to motivational tapes during lunch break or commuting to work. Many people spend time driving to work. Information about your goals or inspiring motivational phrases can prompt you to move from one level to another—From deciding what you want to reach, to live actions.
Have Backup Plans if Something Would Go Wrong.
Have you seen the movie “Little Miss Sunshine”? If not, find time for it. It is a heartwarming movie about a fractured family, which takes the daughter to the beauty contest. Her brother wants to fly, be a pilot. When he discovered that he could not fly because of color blindness, it makes him mad. This boy wanted to fly the airplane so much that he decided to reach his dream no matter how much it will cost him. I do not encourage you to put your and other people’s lives at risk. I wanted to show how this movie is a story that depicted lifetime goals. Sometimes our goals can be far away from us. It takes time to reach them. Being closer to dreams, when reading about it, meeting people who did it, spending the time to volunteer in the desired area can move us to the next steps along the road towards the destination. If it does not work, look around for similar activities. If you want to be a professional dancer, start classes in local dance studios.
