In today’s world we don’t realize how easy it can be to reach success in our lives. There are so many people out there that have goals but no ambition or drive to pull them through to the finish line. Being mentally fit means work. Everything worthwhile comes with work but it doesn’t stop there.
The best motivation you could ever have is attachment. Get emotionally attached to your goals, picture it and envision it. Think about how good it will feel one day when you’ve finally got what you’ve wanted. It’s easy to look at a picture, watch a video and be motivated for a little while but eventually this runs out and your back at square one. You need to motivate yourself and never let it die.
Discipline is not always easy but that is exactly what separates the great from the ordinary. You have to push yourself to do the little boring day to day things you hate. Think of the way you hate to clean your home. You hate it, but it has to get done, right? In the same way work towards your everyday goals like this and one day when you wake up you’ll have achieved it. According to Tony Robbins, “One reason so few of us achieve what we truly want is that we never direct our focus; we never concentrate our power. Most people dabble their way through life, never deciding to master anything in particular.”
Don’t stop doing what you’re doing. Keep working at your goals bit by bit and don’t stop until you get there. Consistency is boring but that’s where the above comes in to carry you through (discipline). It’s easy to draw up the schedule, to plan yourself but when it comes to doing it you have to stick to it. Not just for one day or one week or a month, but everyday.
Unfortunately it’s always going to be the ones closest to you that will talk you out of things. Your job is to not allow it to get to you but allow it to motivate you instead. There will always be someone who will tell you that something is impossible or even laugh at you or not take you seriously. These people are the ones that simply can’t do things as big as you. The mentally fit know how to never let this get to them.
Staying mentally fit is a constant process and to do this you need to work yourself everyday.
