Write your vision and make it clear:
WRITE DOWN YOUR GOALS!!!! Write it down so that you are clear about what you want and what you are working for. Make sure you look at this EVERYDAY!! Its important to look at your dreams a goals because your dreams are attainable especially if you write your goals in a way that you can see yourself moving towards them.
Let’s say your dream is to be a world renowned doctor who finds the cure to cancer. If that is the case there are steps that you must take to get in the running for such a feat. Start with a 5 year plan, which would mean that if you didn’t already go to school for a related undergrad degree you would need to get into a great university or, if you did get a related undergrad degree you would need to get into a great top medical school… which would mean that your 5 year goal would be to be in a top medical school with great grades. Which would mean you would need strong yearly goals; so if you are in undergrad one of your yearly goals might be to have a 4.0 GPA… which would mean you would need to set monthly goals like getting A’s on all papers and exams each month, or that you will have perfect attendance for the month of November etc… all of which would lead you to make weekly goals… so perhaps you would set a weekly goal to stay after class to ask questions at least 3 times a week, or spend 20 hours studying a week etc… Which finally lead you to daily goals, that might consist of waking up at 6:30 in the morning to have time to study and go to class, or you might have a goal to simply stay off of Facebook the day of a test. The important this is to have a clear goal and set smaller incremental goals that build up to the larger vision over time. Not only will you be productive but you will feel good about making your dreams real… because that is exactly what you are doing!
A collection of images made into a collage to help you visualize the things you want in life. Should be done every 6 months so that you can see your dreams and goals… Look at it every day with appreciation and you will see these things come into your life!! Having a detailed vision board that is related to your larger vision, will help you to see and remember why you are working so hard!
Know your fears, face them and take control… JUST DO IT!!!
You should know your fears just as well as your goals. Sometimes our fears are obvious to us but often the fears that are most detrimental to our goals, are the fears that we are unaware of. If you are having a hard time getting something done, starting a task that you know is important to you, or just purely feeling “lazy” and don’t know why… it’s often because of FEAR!! Ask yourself, “What am I afraid of?” and listen/watch for the answer because you will soon get your answer. Then it is up to you to confront your fear and carry out whatever it is that you know you should do but “don’t feel like it”.
