We are just 3 days into the new year – what if this year you were unstoppable? No start, then stop. No resolution. Instead, you make a decision to achieve your desired results. Nothing will throw you off that intense focus – you are clear on where you are going and determined you will get there.
3. BE UNSTOPPABLE.
Throughout each workday, we aim to achieve results. The more we have to deal with, the more our ability to focus is challenged. With distractions increasingly becoming a part of each day, even the most disciplined person can lose concentration and be side-tracked. How can we stay focused on what needs to be done and achieve the goals we set?
Mindset is the title for chapter 8 in Stand Out as a Thought Leader, page 199 – you can find exercises to build a disciplined mindset – download the executive summary here: https://lnkd.in/gYBYtSFN
Here are a few simple steps that work:
Set goals. (This one is easy) Setting goals that are specific, measurable, achievable, realistic and timely will help you commit to achieving your desired results. Setting goals will help you discipline yourself to see outcomes.
Hold yourself accountable. Sometimes when we don’t receive desired results it’s because we make excuses. We don’t “feel like it.” Not allowing excuses is the first step to accountability. Holding yourself to a higher standard will help you reach the goals you set for yourself.
Remove distractions. Distractions are one of the biggest reasons we lose focus. Without focused attention, discipline is impossible. Removing those things that will distract you from reaching your results will help discipline your mentality.
A disciplined mindset is essential. And like anything else, practice makes perfect. Don’t expect to become a disciplined mastermind within a day. Make lists, set reminders, and do whatever you need to do to keep yourself focused and accomplish the outcomes you want.
