Is your goal relevant? Is it even your goal? Sometimes when we set a goal, we didn’t even create the goal for ourselves.
Is this goal really your dream? Or did you hear about someone else doing this, and think this is a good idea?
I cannot tell you if a goal is YOUR goal or someone else’s goal. However I can give you some insight on your self.
Alarm Clock Test
The easiest way to see if your goal is actually your goal is to take the alarm clock test. It is a simple concept, but very powerful. You need to be able to create some sort of photographic representation of your goal beside your bed, next to your alarm clock.
This will be the first thing you see. This goal if it is truly your goal will be your motivation to get out of bed.
If you aren’t completely excited about this goal, and it doesn’t make you want to get out of bed, you should consider 2 things. Did I get enough sleep? OR Does this not actually motivate me, because I don’t actually want to achieve this?
How do I motivate myself for a goal?
You shouldn’t need motivation outside of the goal itself. If your goal doesn’t motivate you, then you should question your goals.
Mindset is another key. To paraphrase a bodybuilder, everyone wants to be a bodybuilder, but no one wants to lift the heavy weight. You see, we often SAY we want to do something, but our actions are completely opposite of the goal we are trying to reach. So if you are working against your goal rather than toward your goal. You should either re-focus on the goal, or you should abandon the idea. Since the goal you are working toward wasn’t actually your goal.
