6 Tips to Help You Achieve Your Goals Faster

Nothing feels better than achieving your goals. However, there may come a time when you get overwhelmed or realize that you have lost your motivation. You may find that days, weeks, or even months down the line you still have not made any progress. Here are 6 tips to help you achieve your goals faster.

  1. Clarify your goal. Write it down on a piece of paper. “My goal is _____.”

  2. Have a plan. I have a personal goal to deadlift 125 pounds. It will probably take me the better part of a year to creep up to that weight and not hurt myself. What’s my plan? I have a series of exercises that I will progress through as well as a food and sleep regime.

  3. Stand in front of a mirror and ask yourself, “Am I willing to pay the price?”. A lot of people fail to accomplish goals because they think things will just happen by magic. Your fairy godmother is not going to come by and hit you on the head with her wand. You have to make it happen.

  4. Find someone who has already done what you’re trying to do. Find somebody who has lost weight, gotten stronger, started a new career, etc. Ask around. I’m sure there’s someone out there who would be willing to give you advice.

  5. Don’t be lazy. Stay focused and show up.

  6. Don’t wait until you’re ready. No one is ever ready to get out of their comfort zone. Act now and stop waiting. Between now and dead, how do you want to live?
