How Changing Your Perspective Can Help You Reach Your Goals

Reaching your goalsA goal is something you hope to achieve. By now, we all know that the more specific it is and the more measurable it is, the better.

Deadlines help too.

So if we know what goals are, and we all have some, why is it so hard to reach our goals?

Well, here’s what happens for most of us:

  • We get easily distracted.
  • We just believe we can’t do it.
  • We have too many things going on at once and can’t focus.
  • We don’t take responsibility for reaching our goal.
  • We’re not clear on exactly what our goals are.

AND

  • Our goals seem too big and overwhelming.

But despite all the typical reasons we sometimes fail to achieve our dreams and reach our goals, the fact is that a lot of us don’t give up.

How can we make it easier to keep moving forward without giving up?

By switching our perspective back and forth.

Back and forth from above, in the air, to on the ground.

Your view from above lets you see the big picture.

It can show you what you want, why you want it, and how you’ll get there.

It’s like getting off the road and looking at a map instead of driving on and just hoping you’re on the right road.

Your view from the ground lets you see the immediate next steps you have to take.

On the ground gives you vital information: what to do next, do you make this choice or that one, and exactly where your path is.

The trick is to keep switching back and forth.

From the view from above, to the view from on the ground.

The view from above will give you the inspiration, the guidance and the motivation to get where you want to go.

The view from the ground will give you the details of the exact steps you need to take next.

And next.

And next.

So, how do you start?

  1. Pick a goal. (your WHAT)
  2. Figure out why you want to achieve it (your WHY)
  3. Rise above to see your path (your BIG HOW)
  4. Now get on the ground to see your next step (your LITTLE HOW)
  5. Now, take that first step. If it’s too big, break it into tiny, baby steps (this is your ACTION)
  6. Keep going, and keep switching back and forth.

You’re on your way!

Enjoy the journey!
