When you achieve your goals it can feel like one of the more rewarding things you do in life. At the same time, it can also be one of the more discouraging things as well.
Most of the time people start out with high expectations and good spirits, but then are easily discouraged when things don’t go as planned. This can cause people to stop setting goals all together, which only leads to feeling purposeless.
At Lionheart, we focus on guiding you every step of the way to reach your goals and get you to where you want to be.
Three big areas we have seen that help people achieve their goals are: not being afraid to fail, community, and consistency.
Not Being Afraid To Fail:
It is crucial to set a goal that is “scary” if you want to see big time personal growth. By setting your sights high it gives you something to work hard towards and forces you outside your comfort zone.
By always setting a goal you know you can complete, you lose the ability to learn from mistakes and failures along the way. Failure produces perseverance and resiliency that you would otherwise not have by doing goals you know you can always achieve.
Successful athletes, medical and technological advancements, and big businesses start by someone taking a risk and failure many times. It’s how we learn and improve upon our weaknesses.
Now, while failures are necessary for growth, you need to make sure you have the right attitude about it. You also will want to set goals you know for 100% certain you can achieve. If you set every goal so high that you can never get there, you will only feel discouraged in the end.
The best plan of attack is to set small term goals that will lead to your big “scary” goal. You will feel accomplished each time you reach a small goal, and keep your hunger alive to achieve the next.
Achieve Your Goals With Community:
Community is essential for success and for many reasons. I know of very few people who have made it to the top by themselves. Everyone has a coach, a mentor, friend/family member that keeps them on track.
Community allows other people to hold you accountable for the goals you want to achieve. You also get the satisfaction of celebrating alongside them when you reach your goals.
Surrounding yourself with people who have similar interests and habits will only fuel the fire as well. They will challenge you in ways you wouldn’t be if you did it by yourself.
If you are looking for a gym in Topeka that you can surround yourself with like minded, dedicated people, this is the place for you.
No matter how big or small the goal is, if you aren’t consistent, you will never achieve it. You can’t change your life or fix bad habits by doing it once every so often. You have to do it over and over again until it becomes natural.
Mastery is 10,000+ hours at a craft for most things. That is a ton of dedication and consistent behavior, but it works. If you want true, long lasting change, you must work at it every day.
Our most consistent members at Lionheart are those who trust the process and continue to show up again and again each and every week.
