“I’m going to exercise for 1 hour every day starting this Monday.”
“Sleeping early from tomorrow. Turning my gadgets off 1 hour before bed”
“No junk food from the beginning of next month! Only clean and healthy food!!”
Aren’t these all some of the resolutions we make every now and then?
Well, we all make up goals like these very firmly when we feel motivated at the moment. And how about following these resolutions and reaching those goals?
Oh! That’s something we can have a hearty laugh about!
Many of us find it hard to stick to our resolutions and patiently work our ways towards reaching those goals. There could be various reasons for it, but they stop us from being consistent in our efforts to reap the results that we desire.
Today, we are going to see why this happens and what we can do about it!
So, we all get inspired and motivated to do and achieve something due to many reasons. It could be an internal drive or an enthusiasm that we derive from an external source. We also make elaborate plans, schedules, and blue-prints to reach that target but the spirit just dampens after a while.
Because so many other circumstantial factors influence what we do at any given point and that might also mean we deviate from our regular tasks or existing plans to fulfill the need. It could also be that we lose the drive after doing it for some time because we realize that it was a bit too difficult than we thought it would be or it was more work than we expected.
But, that is the whole point!
We need to identify and be prepared for the fact that only consistency and continuous efforts could help us get somewhere! Which means, we need stronger conviction and resolve when we are setting up goals for ourselves.
Another problem that hampers our progress towards the target is the fact that we sometimes tend to set very unrealistic goals for ourselves. It seems next to impossible for us to reach those targets, given our current capabilities and other factors resulting in us quitting to pursue that goal.
Then, is there no way in which we can learn to stay more consistent and achieve our goals?
Of course, there are! Have these few points in your mind while you are trying to get on track to reach your destination.
Of course, it is very easy to say all this than do it. But, trust me, I have personally reaped benefits out of following all these tips and keeping myself motivated each time I feel like giving up! And the satisfaction it gives to reach those goals and targets overcoming all the hurdles and dealing with all the deviations that come in our way is priceless.
Do give these tips a try whole-heartedly and with sincere efforts. You will not regret it!
