Don’t concern yourself with whether or not you’ll be able to achieve your goals.
Time spent doing this will only lead to frustration, overwhelm and confusion.
Instead, keep it simple…
Know your outcome. Know why you want it. Then create a never ending hunger to achieve it.
To create this hunger:
- Make a commitment to master your craft. Carve out time every day to train and develop the necessary skills that will make you world class at what you do. There’s no quick fix or easy solution when it comes to this. Instead, you have to do what most aren’t willing to do… Train. It will require discipline, focus and follow through. It may even be painful at times. But always remember that experiencing the pain of discipline is better than experiencing the pain of regret.
- Put yourself in positions of challenge and uncertainty. Yes, it will feel uncomfortable and maybe even a bit awkward. But it’s in times of discomfort where you’re given an opportunity to generate the greatest levels of growth. With growth comes fulfillment. So, instead of fearing these times of discomfort, seek them out and then embrace them.
- When you feel like you can’t go any farther take one more step. Challenge your perceived limitations and then defy them. This will build grit, tenacity and perseverance. Not to mention, you’ll prove to yourself that there’s only one thing holding you back from getting whatever it is that you want.
Hunger is the driving force… It drives production, results and the level of fulfillment that’s experienced throughout your career. All of which, are vital when it comes to achieving your goals.
Get hungry then get after it.
