What makes a person successful from the other? Well, quite simply put, it’s the habits that he or she inculcates that help them achieve their desired goal either in their personal or professional life.
What’s the big picture: Visualise your growth and work towards it. Figure what makes you raring to go every day to work. Once you get the big picture in your head, everything else will fall into place.
Of choices and options: Be wise in your choice. And by wise, be realistic in doing so. Think it carefully and think it through as to what you want to achieve and accomplish before setting the wheel in motion. Beware of ticking off things that are easy to do or removing things that are too difficult to do. Set specific and achievable goals, and not vague goals.
Write your major goals down: Whether it’s in the form of a vision board or on your smartphone, these realistic, specific goals that you’ve written down to achieve a specific time period are here to remind you, when you find yourself falling behind.
Break these major goals into bite-sized ones: Sometimes, it can get overwhelming when we see a huge goal ahead of you. Thus, you need to break them down into smaller goals that will lead to the ultimate major goal that you set for yourself.
Swap bad habits for good ones: We’re all creatures of habits – and that includes the bad and the good. So, to make that switch from bad to good, learn how to reframe your thoughts and actions when something unpleasant happens. Eg: Have a quick temper. You will be mindful and take 5 deep breaths before you speak.
Keep positive: No two days are alike. That being said, don’t give up when you encounter your first obstacle. Keep at it. Failure doesn’t define who you are – it’s the number of times that you bounce back from it that ultimately matters.
Persevere: The success of one is hard work, but remember it’s much about the journey and having fun on the way to achieving your goal.
