This episode entails simple steps one can take to be able to self-motivate, stay on track and as much as possible eradicate distractions that slow down progress towards achieving your goals in life.
Mindset is Vital
You can develop a mindset in which you are obliged to select the sole accessible option before you without risking being enticed by potential diversions.
Declare your intention to others
Making a proclamation allows you to keep on track with your objectives. It requires you to do follow-ups on necessary steps to achieve what you have previously announced openly. It is where you should avoid turning your back.
One method to engage the no-return strategy is to pledge to others that you will be accountable. Because you already know they’re going to ask you to say hello, but can you promise this? Generally, action is less painful than regret, a moment of shame, or wondering, or feeling insignificant. It’s genuinely about you committing to accountability partners, coworkers, friends, or coaches. It is even better if you can make it a public announcement that is not limited to a small group of people.
If you have children, you may make a promise to them to put them under pressure. Aside from your colleagues and fellow adults, it is up to you to identify what motivates and inspires you and act on it.
Pray for Divine Intervention
Seek the guidance of God, the grace of God, and the might of God to ensure that you do what you say you’ll do. Of course, this is something you do privately; you are under no need to do it publicly. You converse with your Creator in the privacy of your own home. Once you’ve done that, you’ll be under a lot of pressure to keep your word and deliver on your promises.
Remind yourself about your small successes
There have been times in our lives when there was no going back. It would be best to reflect on your life, profession, or business to see what served as your incentive in each of these instances. What tipped the scales in your favor? What was the driving force behind your decision to participate and take a chance? The backdrop of your statement, “It should work no matter what,” prompted you to give your best. Make a decision and commit to it. Get into the mentality you want and visualize yourself achieving the results you desire.
Weigh in the Pros and Cons
Make a list of all the advantages and disadvantages you’ll face if you don’t follow through with your plan. There is tension between the benefits you will receive if you follow through and the drawbacks you will suffer or the costs you will incur if you don’t take action, and it is this tension will compel you to act and get started. When faced with a decision like this, ask yourself: Why can’t I go back? What makes it so important to you? A must-have will force you to get involved and produce whatever you were born with the capability to create.
Keeping the frame steady is all you need to stay on track and avoid going backward. What “visual” means is that you can envision yourself in the situation you’re going to be in with the project you’re working on. As for the viscera, you can choose to feel it, but the best place to do it is in your bones, soul, and spirit. When you accomplish that, running away loses its allure in your mind.
Robert Cialdini has written a book about influence. He’s regarded as one of the world’s foremost authorities on influence. Commitment and consistency are two influence triggers. When you commit to anything, it’s as if you’re telling your brain that you don’t want to disagree with your initial thought. So, after you’ve decided to do something and committed to it, it somehow psychologically forces you to engage to stay consistent with the initial commitment.
Key Advice
If you are dabbling, you will not achieve the results that you desire. If you commit and adopt the no matter what approach, you will be instantly pushed into the mode of success, drastically increasing your chances of success. Figure out what works for you, what truly drives you because everything has to happen, regardless of what to get you into that coin to that mode of this.
