It’s so hard to stay focused on a goal when it seems like it’s taking so long just to get to the first base.
How to stay focused on your goals
I’m a very impatient person and I always feel like everything I do should give me results right away, right this second! but I know that things don’t come that easily, especially the things that we really want. We need to work for them. So here are a few tips on how to stay focused on your goals this Winter.
Make a list: Writing down on paper all of the goals you have set for yourself is a great way to keep a picture in your mind of what you need to do to get where you want to be. I recently started writing down in a notebook many different kinds of lists. From places that I wanted to visit this year, to the goals I set myself that I wanted to reach for my blog. It helps not only to have an idea of the things you need to do, but also as a reminder that you can achieve all of your goals if you just put your mind to it.
Prepare yourself for the hard work: Let’s face it, nothing that is really worth it comes easy in this world. You always have to put a minimum effort in everything you decide to do, unless you’re a very lucky person, in that case, good for you! I’m officially jealous! Before even beginning your journey into achieving a specific goal, know that you have to make peace with the idea that it’s going to take time, effort and a lot of tears and swear words, the last two are my own way of releasing anger! Keep your eyes on the goal and be patient, you’ll get there!
It’s probably going to take time: It took me a while, but I have finally made peace with the idea that it takes time to achieve a goal. It takes time to do basically everything and all you can do is make the best of the time you have. This year I started working on my blog again after taking a year off. I wasn’t inspired and I didn’t know where I wanted to take it, or if I even wanted to keep it in the long run. But I made up my mind at the beginning of 2017 and I know I made the right choice by going back to it and working on it even harder than I had been when I first started it. If I had kept on working on my blog even in 2016 I would probably be closer to my final goal right now, but I didn’t and that’s ok. All I need to do now is focus on the small little marks I set myself on the way to the final goal and use all the precious time I have at my disposition.
And most importantly, Don’t give up! This one is the most important tip of all! probably also the most obvious one, but I will repeat it anyways, don’t give up! Even if it looks like you’ll never get there, even if it seems like you’re way over your head, you might be so close to your goal and you just don’t know it! Have faith in your abilities and you’ll be rewarded one day, very soon!
And on a different note, this was a fun shoot! I have never done an active wear shoot for the blog, but I am a big fun of fitness. I go to the gym regularly and I find it to be the best way to release stress. I’ll be talking more about fitness soon, but for now, if you want to check out more cute hoodies and casual wear go to Tobi.com. That’s where I found this super cute black hoodie! I’ll leave the link for the rest of the clothing pieces under the first photo!
