What is the first thing that popped into your head? Making money? Running a business? losing weight? Eating healthy? What is something you wish you had or was doing?
Top 5 things you need to know before starting a new goal.
1. It's not going to be pretty... it's not always going to be fun... It sure as hell won't be easy.
Some days you are going to be a mess, you are going to hate some parts of it, and it's going to take a lot of hard consistent work! But all these things are necessary to reach your goal regardless of what it is.
2. It won't happen overnight; it won't happen in one year.
There is no such thing as an overnight success... There is so much behind the sense and dedication that most people never see. Don't fall for the quick money scheme, loss weight in just 1 month. have a 6-figure business in just 6 months. These are all scams that teach you what not to do. Let it take time, let yourself struggle and learn as you go.
3.Don't take on more than you can handle
For someone that wishes to lose weight quick, don't say you’re going to go to the gym every day for 1-2 hours, or change the whole way you been eating in one day. Someone starting a business, don’t be open 24/7 and work yourself to the bone so that your drained by the end of the year.
4.You will doubt yourself from time-to-time
That is, it. You will question if you are doing the right thing, if this will even work, or if it's even worth it. These should be valid questions; you should understand why you’re thinking them and how they should impact you. Is there something you need to change, did you realize you don't enjoy what or how you’re doing something, is there another way you can do it?
5. It is okay if you change your plan and steps to reach your goal.
You will learn so much about the good and bad about your journey to your goal. You will learn what works, what doesn't, what you like, what you don't. There for that may change your plan and may even change your goal.
NEVER GIVE UP!! Never let yourself think that you can't do it, or it is taking too long. If you learn, find the good, and grow along the way. You will be surprised where it takes you!
