How To Focus On The Goal Better

wedding bossness - 2 Steps To Keep Your Eyes on The Prize

Every time we start on something like a new task, a new venture, or just plain starting, we have so many questions that we have to answer:

Are your goals set? Are you all geared up to get started on them? Have you established some ways to support your goals? What will ensure that you actually stay on your desired path?

It is easy to get off the path. It is easy to get all wrapped in stuff in everyday life. Do you know what I mean? I know, I have been off track with my goals. When you do set goals and establish ways to get where you want to go, how do you stay on track?

When you have clear goals that you want to achieve, it is easier to set the steps to achieve them. It sounds easy.

The fact is you will only take control of your goal when you “stop doing things” that you are doing. Look at your life right now. What does it look like? Did you get the steps done today to reach your goal? What you did today will show up later? How then do you stay on track?

So here are 2 steps to stay on track towards your goals:

1. Hire/ Acquire a coach or mentor

This is one effective way to stay on track towards what you desire in life. The coach can guide you on the right path. They can tweak your game. There are all types of coaches for any goal from weight loss to relationships to business. Find the right one for you. If you can’t afford one, report to someone that you trust. Have a significant other person serve as a coach. This will help ensure that you do what you are supposed to be doing to reach that goal. Most successful people have coaches. They have a coach that tweaks their game. I heard at one time that Oprah Winfrey had 7 coaches. Look how successful she is in her life. You don’t necessarily have to pay someone to be a mentor. Just like what I said earlier, find someone you trust. The easiest way to get a free mentor is to surround yourself with successful, results-driven individuals.

Jim Rohn said it best, “You become like the five people you spend the most time with. Choose carefully.”

I don’t know if this applies to everyone but all I know is that every millionaire I have met, had a coach.

2. Join people that have a goal similar to yours

  • There are many organizations out in your own community. If you can’t find one in your area. Check online, there are all types. Facebook groups, mastermind groups, Instagram pods, etc. By surrounding yourself with like-minded people can accelerate your steps towards your desire goal. This helps surround yourself with reinforcement on your goal. It holds you accountable.

Most people get off track on their goals at some point. When you find yourself off the track, ask yourself what I am doing right now? Is it towards or away from my desired goal? Once you start to take action on your top priorities, you will gain more confidence. You will have more time power. You will feel like you are walking on water.

If you want to get started with Facebook groups, here are some that I am actually a part of:
