Taking Steps Backwards To Move Forwards

When you have a goal, sometimes things will get worst before they get better. And these instances may happen more than once on your journey. The key thing to remember is that no matter what happens, you have to keep moving forward. 

Many people will focus on the details of what went wrong for too long. Yes, we do need to focus on what what went wrong, but then we need to focus on how to make it right, and determine what actions to take.

Plans don’t always go as planned, it happens. If we are resilient, determined, and believe in our goals, we can adapt to the unexpected circumstances that will happen. These steps backwards will not keep us back for long. We have to fight for what we believe in and if our goals mean anything to us, we’ll recover from anything and get back on track.

Why You Should Write Goals Down

We all have a million things on our minds at all times. The brain is constantly flooding our minds with images or memories of past, present, and future things. If we have a goal it’s sometimes hard to keep focused on that goal. Read below to understand how writing your goals down, can make a positive influence in your life.

It Sets Pressure On You

If you don’t set your destination, you’ll never get anywhere. We all need our “North Star” to guide is through life. Once you write your goals down, it will stay in your memory for a much longer time. Writing it down puts a pressure on you that will give you a sense of direction. It will give you positive pressure to accomplish your goals.

Daily Reminder

Since you need to push yourself to follow a new set of habits, you need to keep your focus on your objectives. You need to remind your mind of your main reason to adopt these new habits.” Kenneth J Hutchins, 10 Powerful Habits of Successful People

Read it to yourself when you wake up, and before you go to bed. You must remind yourself everyday what your goal is. Do this consistently and trust me, you’ll see results.

It Gives You Focus

Writing down goals will keep you focused on your goals especially if you read it daily. The world is full of distractions (social media, politics, life etc) so we need written reminders to pull us back into focus. Focus on what you have to do, and everything will fall into place.

Write Your Goals Down

Grab a piece of paper and write your goals down. You could pinch it into your phone but we strongly suggest a pen and paper because there’s something about actually working something down that gives it more life and meaning. It’s not the end all be all but it’s a start. Start Now!

The Past is Not Your Future

We all have events in the past that have shaped who we are now. Some memories more painful than others. Some events more memorable than others. Even though the past has shaped who we are today, we are still in control of what our future will look like tomorrow by focusing on today. So if you’ve had terrible things happen to you, don’t let that hinder you from achieving your goals. Here are a few tips to help you do just that.

Warning this will not be easy. It takes time to really move on from your past if change is what you want in your life.

  1. Let Go of all Your Mistakes.

    This takes time but there is a way to let go off all the negative memories of your past. These memories are similar to bad tenants who have been evicted but are refusing to leave. You must take your strongest men and physically remove them from your mind. Write them down on a piece of paper, as if you are pouring them out of your mind. Now tear that paper to shreds and as you dispose of it, mentally, physically, and spiritually let go of those negative thoughts. (Sounds crazy but it works for some)

  2. Focus on Making Today Productive

    Focus on tackling as many things on your to-do-list. The more you check off, the more progress you will be making towards your goals. Focusing on the here and now is setting a strong foundation for the future. The title of this blog is, Live Now or Forever Hold Your Peace, to “live now” is to focus on today. Enjoy today, be grateful for another day on this planet where you are the creator of whatever you want. Go and create something wonderful.

  3. Learn From the Past

    There are lessons to be learned from your past. You can learn from bad and good moments. Write down the lessons that you have learned from these instances. Having a list of these lessons will help you to move on from your past. When new opportunities arrive, and they will, you will already be equipped with what not to do because of this list. Prepare today for the opportunities that you hope to have in the future by learning from the past.

Try these tips for putting the past where it belongs, the past, and living in the now so that you can truly enjoy the moment and have more control of your future. You already posses everything you need to achieve the things that you want. You just need to develop what you already have.

Live Now or Forever Hold Your Peace!
