A new year is coming. You survived many hurdles, you had time to rethink your goals, and now you are ready to tackle the new year with a fresh perspective. But how do you go about it? Many people begin the year with great momentum just to soon let go of their dreams and fall back into old habits and stressful routines. Splash Tears eye drops have gathered some tips to help you remain consistent throughout the year and achieve your goals. Continue reading to learn how.
Set schedules for yourself and stick to them. Move or get rid of your TV, set a limit on how much time you spend on social media, and turn your phone off when you are working or set it on work mode. Be stingy with your time! No one will hand you the success you seek. You have to go out and get it. Therefore, do not worry about other people’s perceptions of you. If your friends want to go to the pub on a Tuesday night, but you’d rather stay home and work on your craft. Do just that. Tell your friends, “next time” or “now it’s not a good time for me,” and get working on your dreams. The average drinker spends 3.5hrs per week at bars and spends about $17.00 per hour. So why waste your money and time on an activity that will not get you closer to your dreams? Choose how you spend your time wisely, and soon you’ll reap great benefits.
Jim Rohn said, “you’re the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” But as it turns out, it goes much deeper than that. During their many social influence studies, Christakis and Fowler found that even people you have not met influence you. How? Due to normative social influence. If a close friend becomes obese, your perception of a healthy weight becomes warped, and soon, you may gain weight yourself. If a friend of a friend becomes obese, the probability of you becoming obese increases by 20%. This is also true for happiness and smoking, as linked above. So choose the people around you wisely. Choose mentors and people in positions where you see yourself in the future. Take a student attitude even if you have knowledge in the field you seek to succeed. A beginner’s mind will take you much further than a “know-it-all” attitude. Be humble and learn from others without belittling yourself.
Setting a goal does not lead to success on its own. You must come up with an action plan and get at it each and every day. Understand that not achieving your goal within the desired timeline or having mishaps along the way does not constitute a failure. It takes more than one try to reach your destination. One way to remain positive is to journal at the end of each day. Simply write down your victories and frustrations in a journal of your choice. Having your days on paper is an excellent way to revise your week and see where you are lacking to keep yourself on track. Choose a way to keep tabs on your efforts and visualize your dreams. Create a vision board or a bullet journal, and don’t stop until you reach your goals. Believe that you can, work hard for it, and in time you will achieve your dreams.
Your dreams are yours to chase. No one is coming to save you or babysit you through life. You must be your own director. Set alarms, wake up early, eat healthy, work out, and then work on the life you desire. A healthy diet and some form of physical activity are key factors to academic achievement. So, please, do not go from your bed to your desk without taking time to eat and feel ready. A cup of coffee is not breakfast. Take care of your body and mind so they can take you to places to never even imagine going. Your dreams are closer than you think, just take the necessary steps and prioritize what matters the most.
