A POSITIVE MENTAL ATTITUDE!
Did you know that Thomas Edison failed over 10,000 times before inventing the light bulb? Can you imagine if he gave up, I’d be writing this by candlelight!
You have to be prepared to accept failure in order to achieve success. Just because you don’t succeed right away is no reason to give up, only give up when you no longer believe in your goal or you want to change it. If you want to change your goal that is perfectly acceptable. Sometimes we set goals we think we want to accomplish and then after setting out to accomplish them find out we really don’t want that goal after all. That’s fine, you are not going to know whether a goal is suited to you until you start plotting your course towards it.
The most important thing is your desire. Do you really, really desire to achieve that goal? Let’s find out. Here’s another exercise for you, spend the day imagining that you have achieved your goal. Perhaps your goal is to be an author, to reach your ideal weight, to sing, to teach, whatever it is, pretend for the day that you have accomplished it.
Note in your journal how your day would be spent. Would you be writing, clothes shopping, singing, teaching, etc. and also write down how you feel while “living” your goal. Does it feel right, comfortable, you? Design the day from start to finish in your journal and live it in your mind for the day, if you can live it in reality, in some manner, for the day even better. Repeat this for several days, continue to note any changes in how you feel, whether it be more aligned with the goal or maybe not so much.
