The road I take to achieve goals is unlike the path of anyone else. My strength lies in my ability to set and achieve small goals. Tiny milestones serve as encouragement to keep pushing forward.
Small goals may seem unsatisfying to others, but they are meaningful to me. They help me to exercise patience with the process. I am also kinder to myself along the way.
My desire to earn a promotion at work inspires me to hit clear milestones each day. I know that consistently impressing my employer makes me noticeable. It shows that I have the ability to do well on an ongoing basis.
Hitting smaller targets give me self-confidence. It proves to me that I am capable of doing whatever I set my mind to. It pushes me to try new things.
The effort I put into reaching financial goals results in satisfying outcomes. When I decide to set smaller savings targets, I am able to attain them. Achieving financial well-being is attainable because I consistently focus on small accomplishments.
Today, I see the benefit of starting small and working my way up to large goals. I realize it prepares me for humbly accepting bigger achievements. I am committed to taking the long road to sure success.
1. How do I respond to others who think I am taking too long to be successful?
2. What factors sometimes cause me to feel unaccomplished?
3. How can I tell when a goal I set is less than I know I am able to achieve?
Martial Arts is great for this. Whether you are looking for fitness goals, self defense or to learn a great skill, you are built up with small goals to help you preserve. It could be belts or rank, it could be the accolades from your coaches or it could be seeing how the martial arts lifestyle is changing you everyday!
