5 Ways To Stay the Course

May 1, 2023

Life is often likened to an obstacle course, where the challenge lies in navigating through the obstacles to reach one’s desired goals. Many people struggle with this aspect of the journey. Encountering obstacles while pursuing your goals is normal; it can be seen as a test of your worthiness.

However, when these obstacles start to become a nuisance to the point of hindering your goals; or worse, causing you to abandon your goals, one must take action and think things through.

Here are some helpful, tested pointers to keep your focus on achieving any goal that you put your mind to.

1. Think Positively
This means: Do not quit. Especially when you are already halfway towards your goal. There should be no room for quitting.

Quitting is equivalent to returning to the starting line of goal attainment, wasting time, energy, money, and numerous other resources. Quitting is far costlier than seeking a solution to the problem, despite the frustration it may bring.

2. Maintain a clear, open and stress-free mind
Always be ready to receive new ideas. Concentrate and focus your thoughts. Think broadly and be open to new options to eliminate the particular obstacle you are currently dealing with.

3. Persist and Persevere
Explore every possibility, even if it means trial and error, to ensure that you exhaust all potential solutions for the problem at hand.

4. Simulate
Imagine possible solutions that can help you overcome or resolve the obstacle that is impeding your progress. Use the power of visualization to stimulate your mind and generate innovative ideas.

5. Seek Help
If all else fails, reach out to individuals who are more knowledgeable about the work being done. Their suggestions might not necessarily be the exact ones you were hoping to hear, but they could spark NEW ideas in finding the right solution to your problem.
