3 Steps to Achieving Any Goal

Updated on March 4, 2020

Are you full of dreams that you wish to come true? We all are, but most of us find obstacles when making our dreams come true. While in this article I will focus on helping you achieve your dreams through the power of your mind.

Here are a few things that are essential for you to do if you wish to find success:

1. Have a Positive Feeling About Your Goal

It is impossible to achieve anything without believing. While it is simple to say and difficult to do, because you cannot force yourself to have a positive feeling, there are ways to change your mindset.

The important thing is to feel positive about the future and your goal without developing anxiety or worry that your dream will not come true. Simply look at the side of abundance - and even if you do not acquire or make your dreams come true, you will still feel fulfilled on the inside.

Do not lose the drive or tell yourself that the effort is not worth it because it is too risky, or that no matter how hard you try to achieve your goal, it will not work. This mindset will lead you to a fearful state and even if you make your dreams come true, you will be living in fear and doubt of losing what you have gained. A state of mind in which you have a negative feeling in advance will drive you further away from your goal.

Be kind to yourself and see brightly!

2. Devote Yourself to Your Goal Through Your Actions and Do Not Be Afraid of Obstacles

There is a saying that your dreams do not work unless you do. And it happens to be right.

Having belief in something will not simply make it come true unless you are extremely lucky. You need to go after it and show that you want it through your actions. If you do not do anything, it is not very likely that your desires will come true on their own.

For example, if you wish to learn a new language, there is no way that this can happen without you wanting to put effort into learning it. And during the process of learning, you will find difficulties. But this should not demotivate you because if you truly have a drive, you will embrace those obstacles, while still having an image in your head for your desired result. It is not only about learning languages, but just about everything that you strive to achieve.

Obstacles are nothing to be afraid of because, if they did not exist, anyone would be able to do anything. If you run away from them by giving up on your goal and jumping to another with hopes that it will be easier, you will sooner or later find out that there are challenges with obtaining anything that you do not have. So instead of giving up, take them as something normal and have enough self-trust within yourself so that, through your positive mentality and actions, you can climb towards your goals.

3. Drop Your Expectations

While having an image in your head, constantly focusing on your goal and putting in all the effort may make you think that your success is promised, and while I highly encourage positive thinking, you should not obsess and expect too much because this may lead to disappointment. Do not focus on your biggest goal only, do other things in your free time and have fun.

My point is not to discourage you, but to prevent you from a possible disappointment. And even if you get discouraged and feel like giving up on your dreams, if you truly have inner belief, success may unexpectedly find you and show you that your efforts have been worth it.

Have belief, but not expectations!

In conclusion, with this simple guide, my aim is to help you build the mentality to successfully achieve your goals, while embracing failure and obstacles, and seeing them as a crucial part of making progress.
