How to Achieve Your Bucket List


Two words: Energy and Focus!

goal

Getting Started

  • Start Small. Eat your elephants one bite at a time (weird, I know, but it works). Set micro-goals to achieve larger ones.
  • One Goal. Instead of trying to fulfill everything, focus on ONE with full energy and laser focus.
  • Examine the Motivation. Describe goal and reasons to complete it.
  • Be Passionate! Commit to it publicly. Tell your friends. Write about it in the papers. Promote your need to succeed.
  • Set a Start Date. Don’t just start. Build anticipation. When you do start, you’ll start with even more enthusiasm.
  • Create a Dream Collage. Find pictures that match your set goal. Build a short Mantra. Put it everywhere!

Staying the Course

  • Work Hard! Nothing pays off like great and relentless practice!
  • Visualize your success! Feel the benefits of completion. This should cause a sudden surge of inspiration.
  • Hold yourself back! Pace yourself. Don’t do 100%. This will make you yearn for the next opportunity to practice.
  • Check out the competition. If you’re in a competition, check out how other’s are faring. (This should ignite your rear).
  • Just Start! There’s no motivation like action, works every time. Get dressed and do one set. You’ll take off.
  • Keep your audience informed. Update your fans on the progress of your success.
  • Think only positive! Read books and success stories on it. Make prior conquerors your mentors.
  • Listen to great music. Everyone has their own preference. Create great playlists that match your moods and modes.
  • Speak with believers. Find people with the same goal as you. Call friends and family that support your ambition.
  • Celebrate! Every step is precious. Chart your progress and reward yourself for each milestone.
  • Never miss 2 days in a row! If you’re incapable, improvise. Do something that resembles your practice.
