Going The Distance
Learn how you can dramatically increase your chances of success and reaching your goals.

Write Down Your "Why": For instance, you might record on paper, "I want to achieve ___ results because it will validate ___." Don’t be surprised if you find yourself using terms like "purpose" or "life calling" when you form your "why." Further, finding your "why" might mean asking yourself things like "What’s in it for me if I do ___? What if I don’t do ___? Is the 'why' strong enough to keep me going? Am I tapping into my full potential? Is this something to which I'm willing to completely commit?"

Going the Distance: It's imperative that you act with certainty and confidence. If it’s a "must" for you, you owe it to yourself to make it work and achieve your goal; as such, you need to connect again with your beliefs to ensure they'll get you where you want to go.

Revisit Your 4 Squares: Write down the results you're striving to achieve, and then work backward to consider what action you need to take to achieve these results. What do you need to believe about yourself and your innate potential to make it a reality?

Secure a Mentor: Author Cynthia Kersey notes that research from Rockefeller University has shown that a mere 10% of people successfully realize their desired changes on their own; as such, she recommends putting into place an accountability structure to increase your chances of success.

Finally, Robbins talks in the video about implementing daily rituals that provide you with momentum while creating an attitude of confidence that you’re going to accomplish one specific thing a day. This will condition your mind to be in a state of follow through regarding your desired results. After all, progress motivates people and gets them excited.

Until next time, embrace your inner wisdom.

Namaste,
Karen
