As much as we might want our goals when we first lock them in and decide to go for gold, sometimes it’s easy to lose track and forget how that hunger felt.
Here are a few ideas to keep that fire stoked:
- Have a routine and hit those goals regularly: Sometimes we’d rather sleep in when we need to get up and workout, or stay out an extra few hours when we have something important to do in the morning. If it’s a habit to hit those goals, you’ll be more likely to just get and do what needs to be done, and once you start you soon start enjoying it!
- Use a vision board: Fill up a board or poster with images that inspire you to keep pushing with your goals, and update and add new images regularly to keep it fresh and exciting!
- Hang around people who want the same things: if you don’t know these people, meet them. If you are having trouble finding them in your neighbourhood, maybe try some groups online!
- Find your mentors: These don’t necessarily need to be people that you actually know, you can follow and be inspired be someone’s career or journey without actually having the chance to meet them!
Have a productive day!
With the announcement of those who will be speaking at 10X Growth Con 2018, it got me thinking. If someone asked me to get up on stage and share what had inspired me to get up at 3 am and tackle the things that scared me, what would I say? What would I tell them about the beginning of my slippery slope into madness and hunger for success?
I imagined, I visualized it, and I wrote it down. It is done. it is a speech for those who want more. It is a speech for the hungry.
Now to think about delivery. Even though I film and upload you tube videos regularly now, I’m terrified of standing up and speaking in front of real, live people. Even standing up in a room sharing some results makes me stutter, sweat, and I inevitably feel the blood rush to my face (which is only exacerbated by knowing I’ve gone red). But isn’t this all the more reason to write it? To tackle yet another terrifying and necessary part of life and dominate it?
The prospect excites me to no end! I love my speech. It embodies me and what I’m about. It reflects my soul. I haven’t figured out where and when I will deliver this speech, but I’m amped at the prospect, and for the opportunity! Until then…
