We’ve got the goal, we’ve moved it into high priority, we’ve written it down, and we have an action plan. Now, step 5 of 6.
5. JUST RIGHT NOT TOO HIGH, NOT TOO LOW
As you begin your action plan, try to assess your fitness level and the level of your commitments. You should be gradually rising above where you currently are but not pushing so hard that you are discouraged. We humans are so intent on getting results, we often fail due to taking on too much. Think small steps and celebrate the steps you do take. Remember? We called our action steps, “Success Markers”. We set them small and achievable and we celebrate them as a mark of success! If they are too easy, up the ante a little bit. Nothing says you can’t build on your successes. This is another reason why we set them small. They are easily modified, altered, or moved without throwing off the whole plan!
Step by step, little by little your changes will bring change. Be determined to not be an “instant gratification” goal setter. The best goals reached are the ones you work at with high levels of passion, effort and commitment. They are the goals that took time and sacrifice. They are the goals that are worth it! You are worth it. Do some reevaluating if you need to. The goals and action plans were not written in stone. Make adjustments to keep you pointed toward the successful result!
The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack of will.
Success comes from knowing that you did your best to become the best that you are capable of becoming.
