Define your success and set goals
Knowing what your success is will help you achieve it and stay on task. Once you know your long term goal, achieving your success, you can then set smaller more achievable goals to reach that success. Break these down into three categories, work, relationships and health.
Find inspiration and motivation
So you’ve got your goals, you’ve got where you want to be, you just need to do the work and stick to your goals. It’s easier said than done. There’s lots of great websites with daily inspiration in niche industries, podcasts and books are also a great source of inspiration and motivation.
Create good habits and a routine
It’s much easier to complete goals and keep the motivation levels consistently high by creating good habits that are easy to achieve and can be done regularly. Once you’ve identified these good habits and how they will help you achieve your goals, you need to then work them into a routine. This will then become natural to you, and you will be working towards your goals without even thinking about it.
Everyone procrastinates, it’s a natural thing, what you need to do is minimise the time you procrastinate and the best way to do that is to be motivated to do the thing you’re putting off. Go back to step two and read some inspiration and motivation blogs, books and listen to some podcasts. Get motivated and you’ll soon stop procrastinating.
Keep success achievable
Don’t look at being successful as a distant achievement, make sure you set those goals to be achievable and for every goal you complete you’re one step closer to success. If you’re completing daily goals you’re always moving closer to success and you won’t become stagnant or bogged down.
