You had big goals.
Yet, you have fallen off of them lately.
Your goals have been sitting idle, but you still want to accomplish them. Even though you are down, you haven’t given up.
What will it take for you to get back up and pursue your goals?
Falling Down on Your Goals
You were going to get into shape. You were going to write a book. You were going to look for that new job or career.
Quite simply, you fell down. You fell off your goals.
Perhaps, you are tempted to give up and let them go. Or a better choice is to do what you do anytime you fall down… you get back up and try again.
“Getting back up is always the first step when you fall down.” (Tweet this Quote)
So, what is stopping you today from getting back up and pursuing your goals again?
Get Up and Get Going!
Today is the day to pick yourself up and give your goals your all.
Get up. Get going.
Here are 7 Ways to Get Back Up and Pursue Your Goals:
- Take Action – It’s easy to let a fall paralyze your resolve. Don’t mire yourself in misery. Don’t let a failure keep you down physically or emotionally. Get up. Take action. Take a first step. Getting back in motion is key.
- Re-Group – Do you need to recharge or re-group before taking on your goals again? If you are working out, maybe you have an injury that you need to nurse before continuing. Or perhaps, you need to learn a new skill before advancing. Re-group yourself and your reources so that you are even more prepared for your next advance on your goals.
- Make a Plan – Charging boldly into your goals can feel great, yet without a plan you may be rushing into the wrong direction. Make a plan and chart your course to success before wildly exerting yourself.
- Write Down the Lesson – Instead of just saying, “Yeah, I won’t do that again.” (Which might not be the right answer anyway.) Take a moment to write out what you learned. Write the lesson down in your journal. Taking a few minutes to spell out what you learned makes a bigger impact than simply shrugging it off.
- Get Some Perspective – What you may have seen as utter failure may not have been that dire after all. We tend to grade ourselves much harsher than the real world. Get some perspective on your situation from a friend or trusted advisor.
- Practice, Practice, Practice – If you want to do better next time, you have to practice. What did you fall down on? A job interview? A presentation? Rehearse the event with a friend or even the mirror. You’ll be more polished the next time.
- Get Determined – You may have fallen down. But, don’t let that reduce your resolve. In fact, bring your energy, drive, and passion to every attempt at your goals. A setback can provide even more motivation for the next time.
