Want to finally get the results you want in your life? In fact, are you fed up not getting the results in your life? Ones that you secretly know you’re capable of? Do you want to know how to finally get more consistent results in your life? Then read on, as avoiding these three key mistakes are the keys everyone needs to succeed.
Mistake №1: Not Defining What Exactly You Want
You need to know what you’re aiming at. Ever worked on a project with a poorly defined outcome? Did it deliver? No? No surprise there, then! And it’s the same with life. Unless you define what you want, and do that precisely, you have little chance of getting it.
Heard the hackneyed phrase ‘Fail to plan, plan to fail?’ What’s important here is that if you don’t know what you’re aiming at you’ll only be successful accidentally. If you want more consistent results, you have to know what you want.
“If you don’t know where you’re going, any road will take you there.”
The Cheshire Cat, Alice In Wonderland, Lewis Carroll
So the bottom line to avoid this mistake: decide what you want. It doesn’t have to be a huge thing. You don’t even need to go over the top with goal setting. But knowing what you want is the first step to getting there. To paraphrase the Cheshire Cat in Alice in Wonderland, “If you don’t know where you’re going, any road will take you there.”
Mistake №2: Not Having At Least Some Plan
Procrastination and perfectionism can be problems for a lot of people. Some won’t take action in their life until they are sure it will work. And that’s a recipe for disaster quite honestly. Any plan, even a poor one, is better than nothing. It gets you started.
If you don’t have a plan, you most likely won’t get any results. Then you’ll stay precisely where you are. The key to getting better results, as long as you know what your aim is, is to take action based on a plan. If your plan isn’t perfect — that’s OK, you can refine it based on your results.
This is fundamental as if you don’t have a plan you won’t get anywhere. Think about it like this. Tonight you fancy a nice meal — steak, beans and dauphinoise potatoes. You visualise it so…
