One of the best ways to achieve your goals is to create a mindset that keeps you in the game until the finish line. Knowing you can achieve your goals, and putting into place the things that will support that mindset, can fast forward your results and keep your goals on track.
Here’s an example of how your mindset can drive you toward your goals. Over the last few months, I’ve been working with a client who was looking for a new job. Not just any job, but a job that would be fun, interesting, and a great career move. Last week he accepted a position that fit’s all his criteria. And you know what? His mindset saw him through the process.
At one point he turned down a job that a part of him felt he should take. But when he checked in with himself, he was clear that although the job offer was an opportunity, it wasn’t the one he was looking for. He held out for what his inner knowing was telling him. At one point he even got an offer for a job he thought he wanted. Yet there were many delays, and ultimately the person that made the offer left the company. Things were put on indefinite hold. It was easy for him to feel discouraged, but my client went back to his intention, picked himself up, and got back in the game.
Halfway through he process, he decided to do a volunteer internship at a company he was interested in. Although there was no money coming, his intuition told him to do it. They ended up offering him a paid research position on a project. The finny thing is, the project ended up completing just as his new job started. In the end, all of the things he did created the mindset of knowing the perfect job would show up.
Today’s post shows how to cultivate the mindset of knowing you can achieve your goals, and highlights some of the things that will support you in the process.
