You know deep inside you’re destined to achieve great things. You have big aspirations in life. However, the gap between where you are right now and where you want to be is huge.
Like your goal was so distant that just can’t be achieved. So, you work hard every day.
You spend hours and hours fighting for what you want. And still, you don’t get any closer to getting where you want to be in life.
Everything seems like an uphill battle, with no results. Like an insurmountable challenge that you cannot conquer. That’s when depression and frustration start kicking in. You get discouraged. You stop believing in yourself.
That passion for achieving your goal and making things happen starts fading away. You try to resist it, but the feeling is just too overwhelming. So you come to the conclusion that it is not worth it. And you give up. Letting go of all the dreams and aspirations you had for so long.
Now, the question is…
What can you do about it? What can you do to actually achieve these big goals and dreams you have?
The answer is simple.
You need to stop focusing on your end goals and focus on small, tangible milestones instead.
It’s not bad to have big goals and dreams. After all, you need to have goals that challenge you to be better and work hard. However, it’ll be quite a while until you actually see yourself making progress towards your end goal. And our brains do not like that. They’re wired to focus on whatever feels good at the moment and ignore anything that’s long-term.
That’s where milestones come in.
A milestone gives you that extra boost of motivation and energy you need to keep moving forward. It shows you that you’re making progress. And that gives you the strength you need to keep going.
Something amazing happens when you start setting milestones. All that depression you were feeling? It fades away. You don’t feel discouraged anymore. Instead, you feel motivated.
Every milestone you achieve gives you a sense of accomplishment and joy as you’ve never had before. And every step takes you closer to your end goal.
