It’s an exciting time of year.  Many of us are formulating our goals for this next year. It’s really motivating to think about and write down the goals of what we want to do and accomplish.  We all have big dreams and it’s exciting to focus on the journey ahead.

However, what I have noticed throughout the years is that many people set awesome intentions but then fall short of meeting their goals. There are many reasons for this and I won’t hit all the reasons in this particular article. However, I see that people who do not achieve their goals often have a lack of focus and/or commitment. Knowing from real life experience, going for large goals takes a ton of commitment! It’s definitely not for the weary and definitely not for people who are lazy!

So as you list out your goals and dreams for this upcoming year, I want to share some of the things I believe you must commit to doing in order for you to succeed.

7 Things You Must Be Committed To Do When Going for Your Large Goals

  1. Developing a Laser Focused Action Plan:  Having a focused goal is fantastic, but you must go the next step! Either alone or with an awesome Mentor or Coach, you need to design a laser-focused action plan. It’s so important to detail out what steps you need to take in order to accomplish your goal.
  2. Taking Massive Action Every Day: In going for your big goals, you need to be committed to taking massive action each day. There is no room or time for laziness. You have to make the commitment to take steps forward each and every day. No excuses.
  3. Moving Forward After Being Challenged:  When going for your big goals, you are going to be challenged and you are going to feel knocked down at times. If you want to achieve your goals and dreams, after getting knocked down, you have to be committed to get back up and take positive actions forward.
  4. Willing to Lose Some Sleep:  Just keeping it real here.  When going for your goals and dreams, at times, you are going to have to sacrifice some sleep. It takes hard work and you are going to have to wake up early and stay up late many times.
  5. Be Adaptable:  When you are going for it in life, you never want to give up on your dream, but you must always be willing to learn and grow and always find ways to work smarter and not harder. Open your mind! Be adaptable and do what it takes to make your dreams happen!
  6. Being Able To Handle The Word ‘No’ And Let It Fuel Your Fire:  When you are going for your large goals, you are going to hear the word ‘no’ at times. Like I said above, going for huge success is not for the weary or the lazy.   You must commit to take any challenging situations and see how you can turn it around. Being told no on something doesn’t mean it won’t happen someday. So use the word ‘no’ as fuel for you to positively move forward and turn things into a big YES.
  7. Getting ‘Real’ About Yourself:  When going for big success, you truly have to get ‘real’ about yourself. It’s so important to know your own strengths, what challenges you have; what you need support with. Without knowing who you are first, you might not know how to best achieve your goals.

It is your time! You deserve great success and happiness. It is time to achieve it! Click To Tweet
