You have already asked yourself the question. However, have you answered the question you have asked yet? Your goal is important and if you haven’t answer this important question yet; you will end up feeling less motivated and may end up losing interest especially in challenging times.
Get your pencil/pen and paper out. This is an open book test and although they have said, open book test are sometime the most challenging. I KNOW YOU CAN SCORE WELL ON THIS TEST.
Take the time to answer this question:
Why do you want to achieve your goal?
Your goals have to be more than just WANTING to achieve it. There are always reasons behind your dreams. START WRITING THEM DOWN NOW!
After you do, you will be more apt to follow through! STRAIGHT TO THE END!
Remember too, each WHY will depend on the goal you have set out to accomplish.
Say for example, you may want to lose weight. Say 10-20 pounds in 2 months.
Your WHY could be:
To feel better; To have a better appearance and body image; To impress your spouse; To live longer; For a special event etc.
However, if you desire is to own your own business the same question is required to be answered.
Therefore, your WHY could be:
For financial Freedom; For lifestyle choices; The desire for independence; To feel like you are on purpose etc.
Keep your reasons close. They will serve as your motivation and will also keep you focused!
