We all have areas in our lives that need improvement, sounds like a huge undertaking in some part. It all starts with making goals and taking that first step, sometimes even that sounds daunting and we need a little bit of inspiration before we can take any steps. The thing is, our minds don’t work the way we often think they do. Therefore, we seek the comfort of encouragement. But often we don’t recognize the value of self-determination, the majority of us, are in the assumption of general theory of motivation and what it’s merit will bring to the table. They argue that we have a fundamental need that is basic to human motivation to engage in actions with a full sense of choice and conviction.
According to some people, visualizing your end goal is pretty much all you need to do in order to achieve it. In fact, this is an excellent way to ensure that you never achieve your goal, no matter how many seminars you attend or products you buy in an attempt to find out why you haven’t “made it” yet. That if, we don’t allow that irrational fear that we will not succeed. Of course, fear of failure is often discussed as a reason for procrastination. And another reasons is not taking action that we’re spending our action-taking time convincing our mind that we are already have what we want. the alternative is to focus in the process of reaching goal, rather than the outcome, increase the likelihood that we’re achieve it.
Although we might all have some fear about the future and alter our function to engage in the tasks ahead of us, it may result on not giving 100% effort through the goal we setup to achieve, that’s the point at which we run out of willpower, because like energy or strength, it’s a finite resource. At the very least, find ways to reduce your resistance, or giving in from negative thoughts and self-doubt. Focus on fundamentals how you started this process in the first place (feelings that are often related to avoidance goals), fear of failure doesn’t predict procrastination. We get on with our goal pursuit. Again, it’s about making the process itself worthwhile, rewarding and enjoyable, and about celebrating milestones towards your goal, not putting off all the happiness for when you eventually achieve it, by paying attention to your process, you give yourself a motivational advantage and you’re much more likely to achieve your goals successfully.
