Every year, thousands of people jump on the bandwagon of creating New Year’s resolutions, setting new goals and gearing up to make the new year better than the last! However, the truth of the matter is, that in order to attain new goals and reach new horizons, you must be willing to make the changes that will yield the results that you want! All too often, as the excitement of the new year dies down, and the fireworks go out, the motivation dies along with it; leaving dreams unfulfilled, goals not attained, and life on the rat wheel once again. It then goes without saying, that in order to be successful in your business, in your personal life, and in your professional life, you must follow 3 basic steps. First, be CONSISTENT. Consistency is key to goal attainment, as it establishes a routine, builds expectancy, and lays the foundation to attain your anticipated goal. Secondly, you must be PERSISTENT. Persistence requires not only the strategy or the blueprint to reach the goal, but it produces evidence of your willingness to stick it out…putting one foot in front of the other, with undying motivation fueling relentless movement towards your goals! In other words, you must be willing to keep the course and not give in or give up, despite the challenges faced along the way. Last, but surely not least, it is essential to your success that you maintain a POSITIVE PURPOSEFUL MOVEMENT FORWARD! Though it may not seem like it, but…. Yes, the “hue of your tude” greatly impacts your productivity. In other words, a positive perspective about and during the process of pursuing your goal can significantly improve your productivity. It’s as simple as this, remaining positive as you make purposeful forward movement keeps you on the track, by giving you the inner motivational resources & energies needed to climb to the top and conquer your goal.
