When we want to build something, big or small, and we have a vision or a dream, even a goal, we always look for instant results or imagine ourselves reaching our goals at that precise moment. We tend to be easily discouraged and postpone these goals because to reach the final stretch always takes more than one step.
The question we should ask ourselves when we are about to give up is: What habits can I develop that will allow me to reach my goal?
In this way, success will come with the progress of small steps taken through time. 🕐
Less talk, more action.
Try to stay really motivated by doing what had been on your mind for days, weeks or even months.
Write down your progress.
It doesn't have to be daily, but sometimes we have so many things in our minds that we forget to make a record of our progress. An easy way is to write down the changes we've noticed with new habits.
You don't want to tell your grandchildren or children "I always wanted to play the piano." do you? You can do it! What's stopping you right now?
Go to the gym, yoga or boxing class, run your neighborhood block, or walk in the park. Exercising, in addition to giving us strength and endurance, relaxes us and motivates us to continue with our goal.
Surround yourself with people who represent what you want to become.
If you want to be a great designer, make your circle of friends the circle of great designers. If you want to have a healthy body, a personal trainer or acquaintances with the same interests can be a great option. It's a natural law. Or as moms would say, "Tell me who you're hanging out with and I'll tell you who you are."
Get excited, teach others.
Even if you're not yet an expert on the subject, or if you're in the middle of your goal, congratulate yourself and spread the word, get excited, and show others your progress. It's good to have an appreciation of yourself, but when we share our progress, everything becomes like a snowball that grows and grows every day more.
Eat healthy, go to museums, soak yourself up in your favorite music, "sin" one day a week with your favorite food, go shopping, read a story to your children, kiss your loved one... Do more. How does this help form habits and be successful? You're just doing things that make you feel alive.
Your alarm is right.
If yesterday you set your alarm to wake up at 6 o'clock in the morning, why do you postpone it? Strive, this is where those habits that will make you succeed begin.
Today we shared with you a quick reading about habits, how to build them and maintain them. At Inflection Point we work to build habits that keep us healthy, we promote personal improvement with our different clubs such as reading, running and music and we strive to make these new habits lead us to meet our goals.
Let's remember that small steps lead to big results! 💪🏻
