Personal Triumphs and Bumps in the Road - Accomplishing Goals


Visitors: 186

Reaching your goals through personal triumphs can mean a lot when you have a home business. Some obstacles are very easy to overcome. Others are very difficult. The main thing is getting through the tough times and the easy times without giving up.

Giving up is too easy. I like to make things as challenging as possible. I have learned not to give up at anything I do, just because I know the outcome will be better if I stick with it. Giving up means that you quit and you will never know the outcome. Good or bad, each obstacle in your way is a small bump in the road to success. You can do anything if you put your mind to it.

Being positive is the most effective way to overcome anything in your way. You would never hear anyone like Bill Gates say “I can't do that". Bill Gates wouldn't be where he is today if he was a quitter. Quitters are the ones that make us all look good when we accomplish something. Quitters have a really bad habit of not looking at all the available options. They would rather give up instead.

You have to look at the big picture if you want to succeed at anything in this world. Chances are the first thing you try will fail. Look around and see if there are any other ways to reach each and every goal. Don't do anything illegal when you stride for your goals.

If you are a positive person, you will find rubbing people the right way is all you need sometimes. Try and be as nice as possible to everyone in your way and you will be surprised what it can do for you. Yes, you will meet a grouch or two in your path. But overall, being nice and courteous is usually all you need in your arsenal of tools to accomplish your goals.

Use your best judgment when you think of other ways to accomplish your goals. Almost always, there will be a more efficient way to accomplish whatever needs to get done. Make up a stat sheet. Write down all the goals you want to accomplish. Then list all the ways you can accomplish each goal. I am sure you will find all the necessary ways to overcome each obstacle or bump in the road using this method.

It's easy to think of some great ideas. But it's easier to forget them. That's why it is so important to write down all your ideas and ways to reach your next goal. Lots of people think of great ideas in their business but they never put them to use because they didn't plan it out. By putting everything on paper, you are creating a game plan for yourself.

Each time you write out a game plan; it will give you experience towards the next goal you want to accomplish. This will make each goal easier to accomplish than the last. Your experiences will become habit forming. Eventually, it will be like second nature to accomplish your goals.

The saying is true; practice makes perfect. Just like a baseball coach writes down his/her game plan. They make a better game plan each time because they learned something from the last game plan and outcome. That's the key to getting better. Each time you go through anything in life it's a learning experience. You should automatically get better at something the more you do it.

You have to learn from your mistakes each time you do anything. It's even more important to fine tune everything each time around. That's why the first time you do anything will almost never be as good as an experienced person. That's where we get the expression, “a rookie". Time is experience.

If you have to; compare each obstacle with the last. Writing obstacles down and ways to accomplish them on paper is the best way to reach any goal. This way, you can look back at your past experiences and compare. This can be a great refresher course of why you should or shouldn't accomplish that goal a certain way.

It's human nature to accomplish things by learning from our mistakes. If we didn't make mistakes we wouldn't learn anything. Don't get frustrated if you make a mistake. Look at all the possible scenarios to fix your mistakes. Only a quitter would give up after they made a mistake.

Start today by thinking of the all the things you have to do in order to accomplish your main goal. Then break that down into little goals to reach that one main goal. If you write it all down you will make a road map to your success. Give it a try and let me know if you have any questions.
