YOUR MANIFEST PROSPERITY MESSAGE:
27. I reach success by staying focused on my goals
Staying focused on your goals is a great way to stay motivated and helps to actually reach them. It is easy to get sidetracked or discouraged when problems arise and we can’t stop thinking about the problem. A great way to resolve problems is to first focus on the solution. Second, focus on your end goals. No matter what, not letting anything or anyone get in your way. But first, you must get clear on your goals.
The clearer you are, the faster you’ll be able to achieve your goal. Choose one thing at a time. The Universe will be there by your side sending you help, guidance and opportunities that align with your plan.
If you are a creator like myself, what I like to do is have a visual layout or a list of all my ideas as a reminder and my intention to complete them all. I break them down by project and work on one at a time. It isn’t impossible to build multiple successful products at once, it is just more difficult and more time consuming, so try to finish one at a time.
If you are a visual person, you can create a visual goal. If you want to write a book, create the cover of your book and hang it where you can see it, before you even finished writing it (you can change the design later). I like to create an annual visual goal board that hangs above my desk. I create the packaging for my future card decks or journals before that product is even created. I keep looking at it every day, feeling the excitement of having that product finished and holding it in my hands, and customers buying it. Work on your goals little by little and eventually that goal will reach completion. Break your goals into smaller steps so they feel easier to accomplish. Add a reward for every time you crush one of your goals. This allows you to stay motivated and also not burn out because you keep jumping from one goal to the next.
If you are not a creator or business owner and simply wish to move up the corporate ladder, get clear on where you see yourself. What company you will work for, your title, your salary, benefits etc.? How do you see people treating you? Sit and really visualize this. Over time, your vision may change and that is okay. Create something that reminds you of that goal. Then break it down and get clear on how you plan on getting there. Are there any new skills you need to learn? Do you plan on working at a new company or stay at your current one? Remember that the Universe may have better plans for you than you even imagine so give yourself room to wiggle. If a new job opens up in a different state and you didn’t expect to move, you might miss this opportunity if you don’t have a flexible vision. Once you get clear on it, stay vigilant because the Universe will get your request and begin to send you signs and guidance to help you achieve that. It may be to apply for a new job or even to move where you will end up finding that dream position.
What goals do you have for the next year?
What goals do you have for the next 5 years?
Let’s focus on the next year: break it down into four quarters.
Focus on one quarter at a time. How can you break down your goals for the next 90 days into smaller goals? Write them all down and keep that paper safe, checking in with it weekly or at least monthly. Do what you need one step at a time without overwhelming yourself. If your goal requires you to wait and have a lot of patience, do what you can to remind yourself of how happy you will be when you reach your goals, but allow yourself to find things that make you happy today and every day because being in a state of joy makes the journey to your destination more fun and fly by.
