James Posted March 19, 2021 Share Posted March 19, 2021 Dreaming and setting huge goals is a great activity. I have met a lot of people with big dreams and huge desires but are unable to get what they want. They try to motivate themselves but have trouble with the next step. There are so many different ways we can use motivation (self-talk) to get us going but at some point you have to get going. Work must be put in to go from point A to point B. Now if your goal is large of course you are not going to get all this work done in a day, or a week, or a month, or a year. Building great things can take a very long time. Sometimes it can take a lifetime. This is why habit is so important. According to healthline.com it can take 18 to 254 days to form a new habit. This make discipline and consistency extremely important. We must get in the habit of consistently taking action which takes discipline and accountability. If you want to get better at something you need to do that something more. Since we all have limited time it may be hard to decided how much is right. That is totally up to you and how much you want what you are going for. The more time put in will speed up results over time. Consistency (how often you do said activity) is the most important thing. Duration (how long you do said activity) is the second most important thing. Intensity (how hard we work to do said activity) is the third most important thing. So really its as easy as just getting started. Set aside 30 minutes a day every day of the week to work towards your goal. That is what you are going to do during that time. Continue to do that until its a habit and you never stop. As you hit plateaus you are going to have to increase duration or intensity to break through to the next level. The more habits you form in this way you will have a lot of winning moments in your life which will improve self confidence. How do you help yourself form new habits? 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
