6 Ways to Get What You Want
By Mirela Sula
Wondering how to achieve what you want in life? Your mind is filled with the dreams of success, but your actions are at a standstill. Understanding how to get anything you want in life starts with your mindset. There are so many goals set every day but so little drive to pursue those goals. Instead of ‘I know I can’, we find ourselves thinking, ‘I hope I can’. So, where do you start?
All you need is that first click in your mind – I really want it. If you don’t believe in your dreams, who else will? Let’s explore the six steps you can take to achieve anything you want, and I guarantee that dream will become a reality.
1. Know What You Want
The first simple rule in achieving anything is knowing what you want and why you want it. Picture that success and multiply it. It’s easy to say, ‘I want success’, but do you know how big that success can be? Work with your mind and raise your consciousness around what you want. By raising your consciousness, you become more aware of what you want to achieve. Take the time to explore what’s out there in the world in terms of success, and it will help your mind realise that you don’t just want it, but you really want it. That feeling will motivate you through the rest of your journey to success.
2. Collect Data
You have worked on the mind and the internal work to achieve your goals. Now it is time to put that motivation and awareness onto paper. Achieving your goals takes dedication and commitment, and you must be willing to put in the necessary hard work. It is time to delve into the resources that will make your goals a reality. Start studying, drawing up plans, researching, collating all the pieces that will form the blueprint for your goals.
3. Think Big
The picture of success in your mind is what is going to keep you going through your journey. It will drive you to the results you want, and it will stop you from relapsing and procrastinating. Make that picture as big as you can! When I became aware of my dream of working with women, helping them achieve their goals and building their confidence, I did not stop at the idea of a small community. I aimed big! I wanted to create a global empire to help women all over the world, and that is Global Woman Magazine today. There is no limit to your dream – stretch your vision.
4. Repeat, Repeat, Repeat
Never put a stop to your dreams with the phrase ‘I tried’. If you fail, try again and again and again. Keep repeating the process, and you will start to notice your mistakes, correcting them one by one. We owe all our progress to trying again. You will recognise your potential, and that is the first step to improving yourself.
5. Don’t Self-Sabotage
If the dream does not scare you, it is not big enough. Our minds often make us doubt our potential, and that blinds us from the success we want. You may find yourself thinking ‘I am not good enough’, ‘I don’t have time’ or ‘I’ll do it next time’ – these are all excuses. You might second guess yourself more than a dozen times but do it anyway. Don’t sabotage your dreams. Simply, replace that fear and doubt with a plan to reach the level of confidence that will help you achieve your goals. Step out of your comfort zone, prepare yourself and work in the direction that will take you one step closer to success.
6. Never Be Satisfied
The most important step in your journey to success is understanding that there is no end. You might have ticked everything off your checklist, but your success does not end there. Keep repeating your process, and you will find yourself getting better and better and more excited about the future. Never be satisfied with your result because there is always another level to unlock.
Think about what you want to achieve in life. If you apply these six simple steps, could you make your dream a reality? Take the first step today, and find yourself one step closer to achieving your goals.
