For me goal setting is the key to success and I truly believe that, and I have proven to myself that I can achieve goals I set out for myself. For example I set myself a goal to write everyday and I have done that, and now it’s become a daily habit for me, weather it is writing a blog, a book or a journal.
For me goal setting helps drive myself forward and helps keep the mind in a positive light as much as possible. Don’t get me wrong I still get down days, but I try to do something positive each day, check out this video I watched today about how to Crush Your Goals and be Successful, by Myka Stauffer.
Goal setting can be done through the year, not just in the new year and should be life changing goals. Check out my blog where I talk about life changes.
Goals that will benefit you in the long run, that does mean getting yourself out of your comfort zone and being courageous and spontaneous.
Separate your goals, into personal, relationships, career, financial, social and spiritual.
I always wanted to do something I never thought I could do, to prove to myself what I am capable of and I feel I have done that, I wanted to be a football coach and I did it, I wanted to win the dancing cup for the highest marks and I got it, through hard work and it continues on, and setting goals helps keep my passions and myself alive.
So set those goals and feel proud of yourself for achieving those goals. Don’t feel disheartened if they don’t work out or you don’t get the results you were expecting, just keep driving forward and you will get to where you want to be in life and believe in everything you do is a success.
I live by a routine as it helps structure my day, with Henry going to school I have managed to find a good routine, so I know that the first thing is breakfast, then getting my son dressed ready for school and then leave the house to walk to school.
It just sets up my day and helps generate good habits.
For example making my bed everyday can really help set up my day, having that cup of tea in the morning, listening to that favourite song or doing my daily errands, that morning workout.
Once you find a good routine, you can still be flexible, and be prepared for any surprises.
I write down my plan for each day, week at a time, or sometimes daily, depending on what I need to do.
Writing down the routine can help make you stick to it, and make space for other jobs that need to get done that may crop up.
We even have a routine for the evening, doing homework, TV, dinner and then bed time.
So do you have a routine? How has a routine helped you in the day?
I was so sad to hear that Claire Wineland who is a public speaker and also made various Youtube videos, had died.
She was and still will be an inspiration for so many. The way she spoke and what she said about people with illnesses truly made sense. Just because some is sick doesn’t mean you should pity them, as people are more than their sickness, they are still human after all.
Here is video proving what a true inspiration she was. She may have gone but never forgotten.
Being a Youtube enthusiast I came across this video by Muchelleb it is about 22 habits of successful people.
It is always good to have some habits that you follow that makes your days successful, that is why I make my bed everyday because it helps set up my day and not want to slip back into bed, and makes me get things done.
I would love to know some habits you have that has made you successful.
How do handle stress? I stress all the time, like today I was worried in case I didn’t meet my friend on time today or if I would get back home in time to pick up my son from nursery. I realized that I had nothing to worry about, as I got there and back from my destination with no problems at all and even had time to spare.
I read this article which details about how some people handle stress, I found this as a useful tool should I stress out again.
