Have you ever thought about how it would feel to be able to achieve anything you want during your lifetime? Would you like to be able to travel wherever you wanted or get any qualification you put your mind to? Achieving anything you want in life definitely isn't easy, but it is possible if you have the right mindset.
Focus on the journey, not the destination
Of course you want to arrive at the destination eventually, but if that's all you ever focus on, you'll take all the fun out of your life and become very stressed about what you're trying to achieve. While you're studying, working hard or concentrating on achieving your goals, enjoy every second of it and create many memories.
Don't compare yourself to other people
Goals that force you to try and become better than everybody else are never good goals to make. While you might become the best in the world, trying to achieve this without thinking about other things as well can become very draining. Don't compare yourself to other people, put your best foot forward and do things at your own pace. Attempting to beat someone else doesn’t work. You can get there, just take one step at a time.
Know when to be tough
Don't hate yourself when you fall down or need to step up and try again, but be tough on yourself when you need to be. If you know you're not working as hard as you could in order to achieve your goals, push yourself. However, remember if you do make a mistake, learn from it and then move on.
Don't rely on anybody else
Don’t rely on other people to help you achieve what you want in life. At the end of the day, you are accountable for your own actions and your own goals and if you don't achieve them, nobody else is going to suffer because of it. If somebody else isn't doing well or achieving their goals, don't use this as an excuse to fall behind. You can achieve everything you want without relying on other people. It takes commitment, consistency and focus so make sure you have those things in place and you will achieve the outcome you want.
Beware of burn out
When you work very hard, you put yourself at risk of burning yourself out. This is something to be aware of from the start. You can protect yourself from this by building in down-time and by not attempting to be perfect. When your body and mind burns out, you won't be able to achieve anything, so building in downtime is very important to your success.
