Making things happen and getting what you want…
I heard a good quote the other day ‘the difference between a dream and a desire is that a desire has a deadline’. It made me realize that dreams are nice but they are just that, dreams. A desire is something you want - and you can put a deadline on it. ‘I want to get x by y date’.
Of course, it won’t just happen by setting a deadline, the important thing it to take actions to make it happen. One step at a time and continue to move towards the goal. It sounds pretty easy but many people fail, you only have to look at the percentage of New Year resolutions that fail very quickly after they’ve been made. I think my record is less than an hour into the New Year!
So, set a deadline and start to do things. That certainly helps. What else can help you as you go after what you desire? A plan helps, but this is just setting out a structure to help. One critical element to getting to your goal is mental toughness and positivity. I hear you say ‘but I’m not sure I am that mentally tough so that’s not going to work for me’.
The good news is that mental toughness is something you can measure and develop. MindSummit allows anyone to assess their overall mental toughness. The app uses the renowned Mental Toughness Questionnaire, a globally recognized and proven psychological assessment tool developed by AQR International. Users can choose the free 15 question version to receive a high-level overview of their mental toughness together with tips and tools to develop their mental toughness. The premium version delivers more depth of analysis and access to further tools and techniques.
So download it, use it and add one of the most critical things you will need to get what you want.
