Goal Achievement: How to Get Started and Stop Stopping

You’ve got this BIG dream that you’ve been pursuing but for some reason you have not made the progress you were hoping you would’ve by now. It’s May, and you’re beginning to feel a bit discouraged. You want to achieve your goals, but you keep stopping. You started out strong and then along the way you loss momentum, you slowed down and became inconsistent. You’ve reached a point where you’re considering giving up entirely.. You’ve have thoughts like: Maybe I’m just not cut out for this. Maybe it’s not meant for me after all..

I know it doesn’t look good right now! You’ve experienced a setback and it’s hard to envision yourself bouncing back. But hear me on this.. 2020 is still YOUR year! Your GOAL is still worth pursuing. And, you are STILL more than capable! You were created with PURPOSE and God has a divine plan for your life. The Corona-virus or any other setback cannot CANCEL God’s will for your life. He has plans to give you a hope and a future (Jeremiah 29: 11 – 13). The setback you are experiencing in your life is temporary. Delayed does not mean denied. God gave you that passion and assigned purpose to your life. Don’t count yourself out, because you’ve slowed down or contemplated stopping. If you’ve stopped, it’s not too late to begin again.

I’m not here to just motivate or encourage you. I am here to give you practical tips for creating a SHIFT in your life. You don’t have to STOP. Here’s what you can do to KEEP going.

The top reasons people STOP or FAIL to START are:

Fear

Perfectionism

Waiting for a right time

AND

Not having an action plan/strategy

Some of us STOP or fail to get started often because of a combination of reasons. Maybe it’s fear or perfectionism.. But, I believe it is most commonly combined with not having the RIGHT PLAN. Not having the right plan is like having a destination in mind, somewhere you’ve never traveled before and just idoly wandering with no clue as to how you’re going to get there. Here this! YOU OWE IT TO YOURSELF TO DO MORE THAN “JUST WINGING IT” when it comes to the pursuit of your dreams.

A real plan is when you have identified where you’re going, what you need to get there, how you’re going to get there and what you will do if/when something doesn’t quite go as plan A.. what is your plan B, C or D. Check out some of my past blog posts where we break down setting strategic goals and creating a plan of action.

You can create a strategy that will help you to STOP stopping OR that will encourage you START!

Here’s how:

1

IF you really want to STOP stopping, the first thing you need to do is go back to the drawing board and ask yourself these questions:

Does my goal reflect my dream?

Remember, your goal(s) are just a break down (steps) leading towards the ultimate dream (the big picture). If your goals are not in alignment with the ultimate dream, then you are just doing “busy work” that will lead to burnout and lack of motivation very quickly.

Is my goal big enough?

What is my WHY factor? (Why do I want to achieve this goal? What will happen if I do not achieve this goal? What will happen/change WHEN I achieve my goal?)

2

Figure out why you keep stopping. Take time to analyze where you are at, why you keep stopping and then for each reason, brainstorm possible alternate routes/solutions. You should never give up on you goals without exploring other options first.

3

Create a support system by:

Getting an accountability partner, coach or mentor.

AND

Utilizing calendars/planers, habit trackers or lists and write out your goals daily, to remind you of your goals and to hold yourself accountable.

In the upcoming blogs, we will tackle the top reasons many people STOP or fail to start, i.e. fear, procrastination, perfectionism, etc.

By completing each of the steps above, you can CREATE a STRATEGY to slay your goals without STOPPING. And, life happens, so if you do stop, if you create the RIGHT plan, you should feel comfortable enough to pick-up where you left off and keep going.

I’m just trying to help someone to KEEP GOING, because I know it gets rough and tough out here sometimes. WE are all experiencing setbacks in these uncertain times and have had to pivot and adjust to what is quickly becoming our new normal.

It may not be easy to start OR to keep going, but I promise you, with the RIGHT strategy you CAN and when you do, it will be worth it!

You don’t have to chase your goals alone! I am here to offer accountability and support as your set and slay your BIG + Impossible looking goals. It is possible IF you have the Right mindset, Right goal and the Right strategy. Ready to create the strategy you need to set goals and slay?

Thanks you to all my subscribers, for your continuous support! Wishing you all a year of abundance in happiness, health, wealth, love & success!

Now that we have finally entered a new year and a new decade.. 2020.. how do you feel? I know, many people have been anticipating the new year. For many of us, 2019 was a year of lessons learned. What makes 2020 so exciting, is that fact that those of us who learned and experienced growth from our 2019 challenges are ready.. We are prepared to take on this years challenges and win! Let’s face it, we will no doubt experience new challenges and maybe a few setbacks and disappointments BUT we have also transitioned into a new season.. of abundance! This is the year to secure all the blessings with our name on it. Last years challenge was attached with purpose. I promise you IF you take strategic action, this year will be your year.

Whatever goals you had in 2019 and prior that you did not achieve.. it’s not too late. But, you’ve got to intentionally decide to do something different THIS year, if you do not want a repeat of not achieving the goal. Some of you have been planning to write and publish your book for years now. Many of you have business ideas, a career you have yet to pursue, something that you’ve been dreaming, but have not pursued because of doubt, insecurity, a lack of money, motivation, etc. BUT timeout for excuses. It’s time to take strategic action and manifest those dreams! Here’s a few things to help:

4 Things To Help You Manifest Your Dreams

1) You’ve got to have the right mindset! You have to believe that what you desire to manifest is possible. You have to believe that you are capable of manifesting it, with the help of God the creator of the universe and the universe itself.

Having the right mindset is not just believing your dream is possible, but it’s thinking, speaking and taking positive action! Develop an awareness of the thoughts you think consistently. Be mindful of what thoughts you entertain in addition to what you allow yourself to indulge in via television, radio, social media, etc.

Your mindset is the single most important part of manifestation. The thoughts you consistently think must be in alignment with what you want. What you think about you bring about!

2) Get clear about what your ideal life looks like. Get specific about which goals you want to achieve. Identify, what you need to do; what goals do you need to set and what sets do you need to take to get where you want to go? You must know where you want to go, because this is the foundation of your strategy (game-plan!)

3) You need to have the right strategy! You have to have a game-plan. This is the what and how. Your game-plan tells you what are you going to do and how are you going to do it. Think of this as your roadmap. Without it, you’re just going through the motions of life, without any intention of going anywhere specific. Sad to say, many people are living like this and reach the end of their life with many regrets. Don’t let that be you.

4) You need someONE & someTHING to hold you accountable. You can use a vision board, vision-book or planner as your THING and you can hire a coach or mentor to guide you and a family member or friend to hold you accountable. The key to choosing your someONE is to find someone is, like you, on a journey to get where they are trying to go OR someone who is already where you are trying to get to .
