Just like that it is July. We have five months to the end of the magnificently strange 2020. Like what is 2020? Most of us have spent the year at home, and have decided to put our goals on a pause because they seem irrelevant given the times.
I am here to remind you that it is still possible to get some of those goals checked off. I am currently reading The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari and it gives a simple guide on achieving your set goals. A way to break down your goals into “biteable” pieces. The book also talks about the importance of allocating a time frame to goals. I am a firm believer in this. (More on this later)
If you’re feeling overwhelmed, exhausted and ready to throw that towel in, I hope this little trick will motivate you to get back at it. Divide your goals into these five sections.
1. Physical goals
This would include your fitness goals, meal plans and everything health. What do you want to achieve with your body, mind and Strength?
2. Financial goals
How much do you want in your savings? How soon do you want to pay off the debts you have incurred? Must you eat out all the time? Do you really need that trendy shoe?
3. Personal empowerment goals
How’s your confidence going? Have you pushed yourself to maximum capacity? Have you tried to get out of your comfort zone? Have you been your biggest PR person?
4. Relationship goals and Social goals
Are you sure you do not have enough time to meet up with your friends? Have you allocated time to your family? Why do you still keep negative people around you? What do you want your relationships to look like?
5. Spiritual goals
How much time have you invested in your spiritual journey? Are you going through life burnt out because you cannot quieten your mind? Do you know how to be still? When’s the last time you sat down in the presence of God?
Achieving your goals is not as hard as you think. If you truly believe you can do something then you can. It all starts in the mind. Do not allow yourself to think you cannot achieve what you set out to do.
Keep your mind set on those things. It will require a daily renewal of that mindset. You can do everything you set out to do. Believe in yourself.
