As you enter the new year, you will need to create a list of goals that you want to achieve so you can attain that level of success you deserve. You will need to have clear goals, know what you want, and how to go about getting there.
But what if you are not feeling much clarity?
What if you find it difficult to figure out the right path you should choose, and you are unclear in your decision-making? Not to worry, this is a common challenge that happens to even the best of us as we go on this journey.
Luckily, to get to full clarity from a sense of uncertainty does not have to be a complicated process.
By taking some simple steps to implement these actions, you can move to realize the full clarity you desire:
The power of taking responsibility or ownership for the things you do is the first set to changing it. So give yourself the power to change the things that you are not comfortable with without worrying about others.
When you begin to focus on making clear what parts of our day are within our control and what parts are not, you will not only be happier, but you will have a distinct advantage over other people who fail to realize that they are fighting an unwinnable battle.
The first step requires you to make a decision and stick to it until you have achieved success with that decision. To achieve the success you want will require you to take time to prioritize what’s most important in making that decision you’ve made a reality, the same as with a goal.
Visualize what you want.
You may think that things have to be a certain way before you can find clarity. However, thinking everything must be “just right” for you to focus easier isn’t always true. Don’t be so hard on yourself, even when things aren’t perfect. You can still choose to make a decision and stick with it.
Start visualizing what your life is like once everything you want is in place. Don’t waste time with what the future will look like or waiting for the ideal circumstances. Live in the present moment!
How will it make you feel?
Creating a written objective is a powerful way to help you stay clear as to what your goals are. Having a goal requires that you make some important decisions. By reviewing your goals every day it will keep you focused on your objective. This focus will help you gain a better sense of clarity each and every single day.
Review your written goals at the start of each day. You can also review them at the end of your day as you get started with the process.
Focus on one goal at a time.
Having a high level of clarity is easier if you’re only focusing on one thing at a time. This is why it’s so important that you prioritize your goal. After you have reached that goal, then you can move onto the next. I do not recommend working on too many goals at once. Each goal should have actions, tasks, completion dates, the person responsible for completing them etc… So instead of focusing on multiple goals, your attention should be on everything that’s involved in achieving this one goal. Don’t spread yourself too thin; that only leads to being overwhelmed and frustrated.
In this article, the focus was on laying out a number of things that you can do to increase your level of clarity.
There’s no need to wait until you are entirely clear on the things you want to do. Take one step at a time, and each day you will increase your clarity, you will be happier, and your life will be easier to navigate.
Start today by focusing on the things that are within your control so that you will have the distinct advantage you need to gain clarity to achieve the goals you never even thought you could set for yourself.
The key for a productive 2020.
