Now, I know you’re probably wondering: How in the hell can this increase self-confidence? Plain and simple, if you set a goal and accomplish it, you will believe in yourself, which allows you to see your potential. This is something to celebrate and be proud of. Although I was a bit lazy and wasn’t quite motivated at the time to think about goals, I knew deep inside that it was something that I must start doing in order to have the future I desired so desperately.
One day, it was time to put my foot down — pen, paper and thoughts. I told myself to write down ten goals to accomplish that particular year. Some may say, "Ten? That’s a lot for one year. How about three big goals?" Well, let me tell you, being the hard-headed person that I can be sometime, I went for the ten with all my passion, hard work and drive.
Guess what? That wasn’t the best decision at all. I should’ve listen to others who shared their opinion and wisdom.
After that year passed, I realized not only did I not accomplish all ten, but I was struggling trying to make the three happen.
My first rule of thumb is creating bite-size goals. Break your goals down into monthly goals or even weekly goals. Now, don’t get me wrong, creating that list for the year or having one huge goal to complete by the end of the year is great, but you will feel like you accomplished more if you break it down for yourself.
What about you? Which category do you fall under? Aiming too high and not wanting to crawl before you walk? Or not aiming at all because you are a perfectionist, and it won’t be good enough (well at least that’s what you told yourself which isn’t true of course)? You are always good enough, so let’s clear that up right now!
