We’ve all heard that “the grass is always greener on the other side,”
but the truth is the grass is actually greener wherever you water it!


Accomplishing our goals is the same way: it’s all about what we focus
on.

If I focus on making sure that I have a healthy meal every morning, I
most likely will.

I’ll begin meeting that goal daily, eventually, without
even thinking about it!

If we’re not focused on accomplishing our goals;
be it eating healthier, or within our business, we can’t achieve our
goals.

While we all need to focus on different things in our business at
different times, here are 5 tips for staying focused on your goals.

1. Set the goal


To start, you have to identify that one big goal you’re setting out to achieve.
It may sound silly and obvious but trust the process!

What exactly is your big goal here?

Is it healthy eating?

Is it getting 10k followers by February?

Begin your focus-journey by recognizing your overall goal and setting it into motion.

2. Set the intention


Recognize that the intention may have different steps to achieve that goal itself.

Then break down the small goals, the everyday bite-sized- lessons you need to tackle in order to build your way to that ultimate goal.

Remember, slow and steady wins the race!

3. Don’t Get Overwhelmed!

Here’s the thing, you’ve got a lot going on and I totally understand that!

But the key thing to do here is not to let all the information that’s coming at you confuse you to the point that you stop.

Everyone has felt overwhelmed with their goals at one point or another, believe me I know I have! If you stop moving, then you’ll never be able to reach your goals!

So pause, take a deep breath, cry it out if you have to, then get back up and keep moving forward.

4. Using your Resources

The next thing you need to do to stay focused is know how to use the resources you have to meet your goal.

If you’re unsure what resources to use, ask! Don’t just go out there and start searching because you may fall into the ‘shiny-objects syndrome’ trap (that we talked about last week)!

Reach out to a community, your company, or your colleagues to find the best resources to achieve your goal.

It will both honor them that you asked and send out a smoke signal that you need support.

We’ve got to use our resources and people are one of the greatest resources you can have!

5. Accountability

Another great thing that comes with using people as your resource is the accountability that comes from depending on them.

For example, when I told my family about my weight loss journey, they’d tell me every time I pulled something from the fridge, “Is that taking away from your 5 lbs. goal…or adding to it?”

Let me tell you, that helped me lose those 5 lbs. for sure!

Another easy way to utilize accountability is it write out your goals on a piece of paper.

First I did it each day, then after a while once a week, then eventually just to once a month! That year, though, I achieved 6 of my 7 goals!

The following year, I got tired of writing, so I just typed it up, printed it out, and stuck it on my wall. That year I only achieved 2 goals! Why? Because physically writing down your goals is the best possible way to keep your mind actively focused on your goal and ready to achieve those to-do’s.

It doesn’t matter if you write it down in a journal, diary, day planner, or scrap piece of paper- just having written it down helps make you accountable to yourself.

Remember, if you can’t be accountable to yourself, who can you be accountable to?

Remember when it comes to staying focused it starts with getting clear on your goal, setting your intention, and recognizing that it may take a few steps.

Even if it is, don’t get overwhelmed!

Remember to use your resources from programs to people and don’t get lost in shiny objects.

Above all, keep yourself accountable!

If you use these tips to stay focused, you’re sure to achieve your goals from lifestyle to business, to everything in between.
