Do you set the same goals every year… and every year you quit after just 2 short weeks? Then this message is for you.
It happens every single year.
You set goals. You set resolutions. And you have every intention of keeping them. You have every intention of ACHIEVING them. THIS is the year.
And then… two weeks go by and somehow you have already forgotten about it. Or life just gets in the way and your routine takes over and those goals that you so eagerly set… have fallen to the wayside.
So HOW can we ACTUALLY achieve the goals that we set?
Here’s the answer in just a few steps. It’s simple but not easy.
Focus on ROUTINES not GOALS.
Here’s a thought. Ever think about how both winners and losers set the same goals?
In the Olympics, every single athlete comes with the intention of winning the gold medal. But only ONE person wins the gold medal. Each athlete has the same goal but only ONE person achieves that goal.
So how did the winner get to the top?
They set routines in place.
We are only as good as our routines. If we can set proper habits, proper routines, proper rituals, we will be able fall back on these routines when shit starts to hit the fan. Having a good routine is what sets you apart. You no longer have to THINK about what you’re doing. You just DO it.
Take a moment to think about your goal. What are some small things you can implement every single day that will slowly build you towards creating a routine around your goal?
For example, if your goal is to get in shape, you might have to make exercise a habit. But working out for an HOUR everyday seems pretty intimating right? Especially if you went from NEVER working out to now always working out.
Try working out for JUST 5 MIN.
I know that sounds ridiculous, but building the habit is more important than the actual action itself. If we can build a habit around the beginning of the action, the action itself becomes a whole lot easier.
James Clear, author of Atomic Habits speaks about this in depth. “If you can develop a ritual that makes starting your workout mindless and automatic, then it will be much easier to follow through.”
Once you have accomplished 5 minutes every single day, increase that time to 10 min, then 20 min. Eventually you will build on that habit and it will soon become second nature!
