Nowadays, we all want outcomes, and we want them now. However, what we surpass is that results often take time to illustrate. Whatever your goals may be, you can achieve success by building your vision brick by brick. It’s that simple! If you were to hit the gym today, workout, come back and look in the mirror, what would you see? Nothing, Right? And, if you went to the gym the next day and came back and looked in the mirror, you wouldn’t see any change. There are no results. It seems ineffectual to go to the gym and work out. So what do you do? You quit. Was working out fruitless? No. It’s just that the outcomes never seem to come quickly enough for us, and that’s why we surrender. Even if the results are not visible, it doesn’t mean the effort was ineffective. The measures are stored. Small Daily Actions Lead To Remarkable Results.
Too often, we convince ourselves that to achieve significant results we need to take massive action. For example, to clean our room, we assume that we need to dedicate say 3 hours in a day. This builds us up psychologically and makes us resistant to act. We hold the same beliefs when it comes to losing weight, write a book, or achieve some other aim. We overestimate the value of one defining moment and underestimate the importance of making small improvements daily. Changing the way we think is incredibly challenging. So instead of chasing the quick-fix, we should learn to set long-term goals and divide them into smaller, more manageable chunks.
Success doesn’t happen in an instant. It occurs through the progressions of lots of little achievements held together over some time. When you set a vision, a dream, or even just a clearly defined end goal, the concern is not how you can make that happen immediately or tomorrow.
The question is, what habits can I put in place that will make it possible for that end objective to manifest? You can try some of the following tips:
1) Stay committed to your goals
Make it a point to commit to your daily goals. And do it. Resilience is the key to making things happen.
2) Maintain a Journal
Even if it’s one paragraph or three sentences, do a quick check in to see where you’re at and write it down. In the long term, this will keep you grounded. It all starts with acknowledgment.
3) Check your inner circle
Surround yourself with people who are in line with what you ultimately want to become. If you aren’t happy with where you are or where you are going, scrutinize the people around you.
4) Track your goals
Don’t just set goals- track them. Make a project plan for your life. Plan all the things that you want to do in the next 2 months at least. It will show you all the things you need to know, like when things are due and how much time I needed to spend on them to get them accomplished. Do this more often, and you will measure the results and what actions need to occur to fix that habit immediately.
5) Meditate and reflect.
It would be best if you took out time for reflection in parallel with the journaling habit. You won’t be able to fully integrate the lessons you’ve been learning along the way without contemplation.
6) Wake up at a particular time every morning
Wake up when you say you are going to wake up. When you set the alarm the night before, you promise yourself you’re going to get up at that time. Keep that promise.
Don’t forget that small moves in the right direction over time lead to outstanding outcomes. So, dream big, act small, and build your vision step by step. Joyscore can help you inculcate these small habits through mindful activities. Download the JoyScore app today and bring more Joy in your life.
