Success is never a guarantee, however, failure is imminent if you don’t establish solid foundations. This can be done with knowing exactly the objectives of what you are working towards all the time.
Successful people have set their goals perfectly clear in their mind and this clarity allows them to maintain their focus and heats a fire inside of them that doesn’t let them give up until they succeed. As humans we need to have goals that inspire and motivate us to wake up every morning, to feel productive, and subsequently to create a feeling of wellness inside of us.
And you can relate to that easily.
Think about the last time you completed a target that you had set for that day, you were maybe tired but that feeling over achievement brought relaxation to every part of your body and mind. You probably enjoyed that night with dinner or a glass of wine to the point that you still remember those moments and want to experience the same feelings again!
What I would like to propose is to start making this your daily practice. Set specific goals to drive specific actions. Define what you want to accomplish and make it as specific as possible. Then you have set a firm foundation for success. Commit, persist and want this badly enough.
This is very relevant also with health, but we need to be mindful of what we ultimately try to achieve by being healthy. I realised that good health itself is not specific enough as a goal and that most people who aim to be healthy never achieve real health.
What I am suggesting is that good health is the key to unlock the real goals you want to achieve in your life.
Having a goal like “to lose 20 kilos” is maybe misleading and can make you obsessed about weight, thinking about every little calorie you eat. Eventually you can end up losing the satisfaction of eating and the mindfulness that you need to be healthy.
On the contrary, having a goal like “I want to smile more” can make you consider which areas of your life you would like to improve and how your current state of health limits you.
Take your time considering your targets as this is the very start of new beginnings.
Get to know where you want to go!
Get your life back on track!
