Life is nothing but an obstacle course, it’s all about getting through that obstacle course to your desired goal that most people seem to have a problem with. It’s only normal to encounter obstacles in the pursuit of your goal. It helps to look at obstacles as a test to get you to the next level.
However, when these obstacles start to become a nuisance to the point of almost putting a stop to your goal(s); or worse, making you completely abandon your goal, you must take action and think things through.
Here are some helpful, tested pointers that will keep your attention focused in achieving any goal that you put your mind to.
1. Think Positive
This means: Do not quite. Don’t allow yourself to give up. Especially when you are midway working for a specific goal, there should be no room for quitting. Adjusting yes, quitting no.
To quit is tantamount to going back to the starting line of goal accomplishment. That is time, energy, money, and a whole lot of things wasted and lost. It is more costly to quit than to find a solution to the problem, not to mention the frustration one feels.
2. Keep a clear, open and tense-free mind
Always be ready to receive new ideas. Focus and concentrate. Think in a wide scale manner and always be open to new options to eliminate the particular obstacle you are currently dealing with.
3. Persist and Persevere
Be sure to exhaust every possibility, even to the point of trial and error, just to be sure that there is a solution to correct the problem you’re dealing with.
4. Simulate and Visualize
Try to picture inside your head a possible solution to help overcome and/or solve the obstacle that’s setting you back.
5. Ask for Help
If all fails, get assistance from others you know who are more knowledgeable on the work being done. Their suggestions might not necessarily be the exact ones you were hoping to hear, but they may trigger some NEW ideas in finding the right solution to your problem.
