How To Have Discipline To Achieve Your Goals

Feb 04, 2021

The hardest part about achieving goals is having the discipline to stay motivated and continue to take action toward reaching your goals.  Life often throws things your way to get you off track.  It is said, expect the unexpected.  Life is full of unexpected events.  If you knew everything that was going to happen, life wouldn’t be that fun to live.  This is why you must have the discipline to keep working towards your goals even when times get tough.  Do not let roadblocks, hurdles, or simply life events stop you from going after what you want most in life.  If it’s important enough to you, you will find a way to make it happen.  Life throws challenges at you to see if you’ll give up.  Keep going and never give up!  Here are three areas on how to have discipline to achieve your goals.

How To Create A Motivation Vision Board

Jan 28, 2021

Often times when you create a vision board it’s about the end result.  It’s getting the fancy car or dream house.  But, that’s not always very motivating.

 

For instance, if you have a vision board with six pack abs and then look in the mirror at yourself with no abs, you most likely feel unmotivated.  Six pack abs may feel almost impossible even after all the hard work you’ve but in by eating healthy and exercising.  You’re not seeing immediate results and that may cause you to give up and throw in the towel.  This is why you should create a motivation vision board instead.

 

Rather than creating a vision board about the end result, make a motivation vision board that includes who you need to be and what action steps you need to take in order to achieve the desired end result.  Here are four things you need to include on your motivation vision board.

Five Lessons From This Year

Dec 24, 2020

At the end of the year you get to reflect back on the experiences you’ve had.  The good and the bad.  What fun adventures you had.  What you achieved or didn’t achieve.  But, also you get to see what you’ve learned.  Each year comes with new opportunities to learn and grow.  Here are five lessons from this year.

 

1. Life Is Uncertain

If anything, this year has taught us that life is uncertain.  You cannot predict the future.  The only thing you can do is face what happens with courage and continue putting one foot in front of the other.  Have faith and believe that there is nothing thrown at you at that you can’t handle.  The truth is, life has always been uncertain.  This year was especially proof of that.

 

2. Be Present

Life can change in a moment.  Nothing is guaranteed except the present.  It’s important to be present to what’s going on around you.  Be present to...

How To Make A Joy List

Dec 03, 2020

A joy list is similar to a gratitude list, but it’s more than just listing things that you’re grateful for.  While a gratitude list may include your house, spouse, or pet, a joy list will dig deeper as to why those things bring you joy.  A joy list is more descriptive and specific.  Here is how to make a joy list.

 

Little Things

First, focus on the little things that bring you joy.  These could include warm clean sheets out of the dryer, the feeling of bright sunshine on your skin, or crisp fall leaves beneath your feet as you walk, etc.  There are plenty of little things to be joyful about.  Find joy in the little things because big life events can be harder to come by.  It’s much easier to focus on the little things in your life that bring you joy.

 

Be Specific

Your joy list should be specific as to why it brings you joy.  Use descriptive words that evoke the feeling of joy.  For example, the smell of warm...
