There’s no doubt that when you set a goal to achieve what you want, the journey is not going to be easy. Especially when your goal is big, the process can be very challenging and sometimes make you fear and doubt yourself.
In this short article, I will lay out the 5 questions you can use to ask yourself so you can gain the clarity and power to begin the journey.
#1. What do you want?
The reason why people don’t have what they want is because they don’t really know what they want. Look around and ask people what they want. They will say something like ” want money”, or ” I just want to be happy” or “I don’t know”.
Here’s the problem: If you do not know what you want vividly in details, the chances that you will get what you want is slim to none. So be sure to know what you want in great details. Write it down and meditate on it for a while.
#2. Why do you want it?
This question is very important. If you don’t know why you want something, chances are what you want is something that you copy from other people, you don’t really know why you want it.
If you don’t know why, you won’t have the drive and motivation to help you achieve it. As the saying goes, when the why is big enough, the how is easy.
#3. What are you willing to do to get what you want?
Hey let’s face it. If it’s too easy, why would everyone have it? If success is easy, you won’t have your chance because everybody would have taken it. Everything that is worthwhile to achieve requires work, lots of it.
So my question for you is, what are you willing to do to get it? Are you willing to work in the weekend? Are you willing to stay up late? Are you willing to do what’s hard?
#4. What are you willing to give up to get what you want?
Of course, if you want to achieve something big, it requires sacrifice. Are you willing to give up your sleep to get it? Are you willing to give up your weekend? Are you willing to give up your excuses?
#5. Whom can you learn from?
Whatever you want, someone else already achieved it. Period. Someone else already made it happen. All you need to do is to find out who they are and learn from them. You can learn directly from them by talking to them, or have one on one coaching or you can learn from their books, videos or programs.
You can even meet them in their events and seminars. For example, I always wanted to help people achieve their greatness and transform their life, I love motivating others so I went to Tony Robbins’ Unleash The Power Within event in London. And boy it was incredible. I met like-minded people and learnt a lot of insightful lessons from Tony. This helped me to grow more and achieve my goal faster.
Here’s a brief video about what the event was about.
So my friend, have you answered these 5 questions for yourself?
