The Intuitive Group: Follow-Through to Success
“A man can be as great as he wants to be. If you believe in yourself and have the courage, the determination, the dedication, the competitive drive and if you are willing to sacrifice the little things in life and pay the price for the things that are worthwhile, it can be done.”
Anything in this world is possible; only if you have the drive to do what it takes to accomplish the goals you have set for yourself. The actions and choices you make daily weigh greatly on your success. If you can commit yourself entirely to doing whatever it takes to accomplish your goals, you will succeed in reaching them. The successful people in this world started out just like everyone else. You will find the only difference is their willingness to do the things everyone else might not want to do. They did not cut corners or say to themselves “I can get by without doing that”. Take a look at the following tips to help improve your follow-through. Remember your success relies on having the courage to stay committed throughout the entire process!
7 Great Tips on Follow-Through
1. ATTENTION — the things we pay attention to tend to be in great shape. The things that we don’t pay attention to tend to be a mess.
Of course, you can’t pay attention to everything, but you can choose which goals are the priorities. The one that you just keep putting on hold, the one that frustrates you and disheartens you when you think about it – that’s the one you need to follow through on and pay attention to.
2. ACTION– THE 15 MINUTE ROUTE TO FOLLOW THROUGH.
Dedicate at least 15 minutes of action toward your goal everyday. This keeps the momentum and consistent action happening. Even a few minutes a day will get you re-energized and you may find yourself putting in far more than 15 minutes.
The 15 minutes work. Try it!
3. RECOMMIT — Get re-inspired; remind yourself why you set this goal or intention originally. Did you think it was possible then? Do you think its possible now? Most likely the answer is, yes.
4. VISUALIZE — Visualize it as though it’s already done, imagine it’s already happening and take action from this heightened emotional place.
5. JOURNAL – Yes keep a journal; use it to hold yourself accountable. Before you go to sleep at night, write what you did toward that goal and what you plan to do next. Write in that journal your action plan and be ok with revising it. Use it to hold yourself accountable and to keep your goal in sight.
6. ASK FOR HELP — Ask another person to help hold you accountable. Tell a friend what your goal is.
It could be, I really want to learn Spanish by the end of the year. Ask your friend, “will you help to hold me accountable? Will you speak Spanish with me? Will you make me recite it to you?”
Come up with your action plan and enlist others help. Maybe you can help them with their goal, hold them accountable for their aspiration.
7. REDEFINE – Be open to revising your goal or action plan. Maybe you need to re-define your goal into smaller goals.
