4 Effective Ways to Develop Persistence and Achieve Your Goals

Written by on January 21, 2020 in Conscious Living with 0 Comments

One of the most admirable characteristics a person can possess is persistence. Without persistence, no great achievement is possible.

Everyone can set goals and make plans for success; however, only a few succeed in achieving their goals. Developing persistence is a way to ensure that you will reach your goals and achieve success.

Here are four practical ways that you can develop persistence and achieve your goals.

Identify What You Want

Before you can begin to develop your persistence, you have to know what you want in your life. Take some time to think about what you want and write down your answers on a sheet of paper. Really think about how you would like your life to be and what you need to do to get there. Write everything down, no matter how big or small the goal.

Whatever goals you write down, make sure you FEEL committed to them. I always say set your goals from the heart so that your heart is set on them. Otherwise, your commitment will be ‘half-hearted' and you will not have the persistence to see them through to completion.

Recognize Your Motivation

To build persistence for accomplishing your goals, you have to have motivation. If you know deep-down, the reason for doing what you're doing you will have more energy to keep moving forward towards your goals. Recognizing what is motivating you is a fundamental aspect of becoming more persistent.

It really comes down to the ‘why' – what is the reason why you want to achieve your goals? Is it because you know in your heart that you truly desire this goal and the positive impact it will have on your life or are you doing it to please other people and meet their expectations? It is only when you are fully committed to your goals that you will have the persistence to do whatever is necessary to achieve them and overcome the inevitable challenges along the way.

Outline Your Plan

When you've identified what you want and have figured out your motivation for achieving your goals, you need to develop a plan for how to achieve the success that you desire. Creating an outline of your plan, that includes specific action steps, will help you know how you will be able to achieve your goals. When you know the steps it will take to get what you want, reaching your goals will become easier.

Be specific and detailed in each step so that it is easy to take the action needed to achieve your goals and you will be less likely to procrastinate and get discouraged. Remember, “a goal without a plan is just a wish” and having a clear plan is one of the most important factors in achieving success.

Shift Your Mindset

The road to success is never easy. In fact, you will face numerous roadblocks and challenges along the way. Everyone, from time to time, can get stuck in a negative mindset, succumbing to the negative thoughts and fear of failure. To develop persistence, you have to work to maintain a positive mental attitude, regardless of the situation.

Strive to keep your thoughts focused on continually taking action toward your goals and avoid the negative thoughts and emotions that can destroy your focus and persistence. Accomplishing your goals and achieving success isn't an easy path to follow. You will run into countless obstacles and face numerous challenges, but with the right plan in place and enough persistence, you'll realize your dreams and be ready to take on bigger and bigger goals and overcome every challenge along the way.
