Don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t accomplish something that you set your heart, mind, body and soul to accomplish……if they are not the ones doing that particular thing – then they can’t tell you that YOU can’t do it. Here is what you can do to achieve your desired goal:
- plan and organize what it is that you want to achieve
- set timelines in which to achieve smaller tasks that will eventually lead you to the original goal
- visualize what reaching your goal will look like
- Meditate and affirm that you will achieve your goal
- Instead of believing that ‘you can’t’ affirm that ‘you can’
- Don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t do what it is that you want to achieve
- Celebrate when you achieve your goal and make new goals
- Thank the universe and be grateful
PLAN and ORGANIZE WHAT IT IS THAT YOU WANT TO ACHIEVE
In order for us to reach whatever goal we set out for ourselves, we must devise a plan and organize our ideas to ensure we make achieving our goal(s) as easy as possible. For example; you want to lose weight. Think about some questions you may want to answer before planning to lose weight:
- How much weight do I want to lose?
- What does my diet consist of?
- Is my goal too ambitious at the beginning?
- Am I considering my health and age?
- Am I active?
- Are my exercising goals to ambitious at the start?
- Have I consulted any health care professionals (holistic healthcare practitioner, doctor, nutritionist, personal trainer, dietician)?
Keep a journal and write out your plans, this will give you direction on how to start and achieve your ultimate goal. Good planning and organizing will help you create a manageable and realistic goal that is personalized for you.
SET TIMELINES IN WHICH TO ACHIEVE SMALLER TASKS THAT WILL EVENTUALLY LEAD YOU TO THE ORIGINAL GOAL
Using our losing weight goal as an example – don’t set your goals too high at the start. Start with a smaller goal/task that is realistic. If your goal is to lose 50lbs in a year – aim to lose approximately 4.5lbs/month or start by removing junk food from your diet (pop/chips/cake etc). Removing a certain item from your diet – like pop for instance, can greatly increase your chances of reaching your goal faster. Say to yourself: “In a month I will have not had one pop/soda and will replace it with something that will help me achieve my goal”.
VISUALIZE WHAT ACHIEVING YOUR GOAL WILL LOOK LIKE
It is very helpful to remind yourself of what you will look like after achieving your goal. If that goal is losing weight – visualize what you will physically look and feel like once you achieve your goal. If that goal is helping your local animal shelter – visualize yourself walking a dog or feeding a cat that is in that shelter. Visualizing and imagining how you would feel like when you achieve your goal(s) will make them that much more attainable. Don’t underestimate the power of visualization – it’s powerful.
MEDITATE AND AFFIRM THAT YOU WILL ACHIEVE YOUR GOAL
Like visualization, meditation and affirmations are powerful tools to assist you in achieving whatever goal it is that you want to achieve. Meditation allows you to clear your head of that unneccessary chatter that makes you feel like you can’t achieve your goal(s). Meditation will also allow you to connect to source/God/the universe and may provide you with clarity in how to achieve your goal. Affirmations will help motivate you. Using our weight-loss goal, you can affirm; “I love my body and nurture it with healthy food and ensure that it receives proper exercise”. You can buy great books or search the internet to have a better understanding of how to meditate and create personal affirmations. Researching meditations and affirmations can be part of your planning and organizing process.
INSTEAD OF BELIEVING “YOU CAN’T” AFFIRM THAT “YOU CAN”
When you believe that you can do something – you will do it. Remove your old belief that you can’t do what it is that you want to do. Tell yourself you can and that you will achieve what it is that you want to achieve. Believing and affirming that you can is half the battle. If you have a set-back, don’t beat yourself up over it and start again.
DON’T LET ANYONE TELL YOU THAT YOU CAN’T DO WHAT IT IS THAT YOU WANT TO ACHIEVE
People may say that it is impossible to achieve your goal(s) and you may want to believe them. Don’t let someone else dictate what you can or can not do. There are skeptics everywhere; your friends, family, coworkers, acquaintances who will offer their own opinions of why you can’t do something. People like this may not want to start their own personal growth or transformations and may be stuck – don’t judge them and move on. I find it is best to avoid very negative people. If we continue to associate ourselves with those who always say they can’t do something – we become just like them. Surround yourself with like-minded people and you will find that your life will become much more positive and goals easier to achieve.
CELEBRATE WHEN YOU ACHIEVE YOUR GOALS AND MAKE NEW ONES
When you reach or achieve your goal – take the time to celebrate it and the hard work it took you to achieve that goal. Think about your future goals and work towards them. Remember how it feels to achieve and to celebrate your goal and look forward to that.
THANK THE UNIVERSE AND BE GRATEFUL
Thank the universe/God/source for achieving your goal. What you put out into the universe will only find its way back to you. Be grateful that you were able to achieve your goals and ensure you take the time to thank anyone that have helped you achieve your goal. Karma is great.
If you are passionate about singing – SING OUT and SING LOUD! Whatever it is that you want to do – do it with passion and do it with love. Don’t be discouraged by those who believe that one person can’t make a difference or because they are not ready for positive transformation, do it because you feel it.
Together, we can make the world a more positive one!
