Shall I start this post by apologizing for the lack of content last week? I should and I will. Last week sort of got away from me and while I did work on a bunch of posts for the blog (as well as the new layout which I promise is on it’s way), I didn’t actually publish much. Don’t worry; I’ll make it up to you this week!
I wanted to start this week with a Motivational Monday because A – we have not had one in a while and B – I need one. I especially need one that includes some focus on goals. We all have them and all want to strive towards them, but every once in a while you lose sight of them. It’s hard to work towards a goal when you don’t even remember that it’s there.
Recently I have been trying to keep my goals in front of me because like Mr. Benjamin Mays says, it is a tragedy to not have them. Let’s face it though, it’s tough to focus on something like traveling the world when you have rent due in a few weeks and a major deadline to meet at work. So how to you keep your goals in front of you so that you can keep climbing towards them? Here’s are two quick tricks that I have found work when I implement them into my day.
:: Affirmations ::
The infamous Tony Robbins has made one hell of a career by preaching the importance of affirmations. While some people discredit the effect of affirmations, it is hard to defame this New Age practice. Affirmations are a way to reinforce both positive thinking as well as inner-empowerment. Having Just a few affirmations tucked away for when you are feeling down or unmotivated can help bring you back to the goals in front of you.
:: Write It Out ::
Want to keep your goals in front of you at all times? Well, get literal about it. Write them down in no particular order and keep them somewhere close to you. I find that actually writing them out on paper makes them more real to me. It also doesn’t hurt to have them easily available when you need a quick pick-me-up. Have them in your wallet, on your desk, or even on your phone. There’s no better way to bring yourself back to the goal at hand then to pull out your list and read through them.
