Here's A Quick Fix For Overwhelmingly Large Goals

This morning I woke up with the intention of taking on the day with strength and vigor. At the front and back of my mind, thoughts of blogging and writing bounced around and I was completely aware of what I want to accomplish this year.

Since then, I've sat at my desk and made multiple attempts at "building my blog" or "writing my next big book" but nothing came to fruition.

You've experienced this before, right? It feels like you're being lazy but in reality, you've shown up and are fully prepared to accomplish those big goals!

So Why The Hell Can't You Make Any Damn Progress?

That question kept biting at me the entire time and I even gave up writing anything for the day. Instead, I decided to fire up Shaun T's Focus T25 and get a good solid workout in because getting my body under 11% body fat is one of my 2017 goals.

Whilst jumping around my room and dripping sweat like crazy, it hit me! Like a ton of bricks, the fix for the above-described problem appeared.

The entire time I tried writing, my focus was on accomplishing an incredibly large goal rather than the simplest action. I was thinking more about creating a successful blog that required loads of quality articles, marketing, copywriting and designing when in reality, none of that matters unless I write a blog post.

When I thought about exercising, I didn't focus as much on what my body needed to look like right now. I was completely aware of what I look like and what I had to do today to eventually reach my ultimate goal physique.

If you tend to feel overwhelmed by your goals, the quick fix is pretty darn simple - identify the simplest and most result driven action you can take today and make that your goal

I want you to set aside your expectations and place a strong emphasis on those daily actions you want to partake in without fail.

Let these actions be your daily goals and let these actions be the driving force behind realizing your overwhelmingly large goals.

Building muscles can seem like an insanely scientific task made up of all kinds of techniques and skills but at the end of the day, all it takes to build muscles is weight lifting or a relative force of stress on your muscles for a set amount of time, a clean diet rich in protein and adequate sleep.

That's it!

Speaking as someone who used to be pretty damn overweight, I used to feel so intimidated and overwhelmed by the idea of one day having six pack abs. It's scared the shit out of me and doubts destroyed me on many days.

However, looking back now, after hitting my goal once I've realized that it was far simpler than my brain made it out to be. All I did that year was eat well, workout and sleep well. 

Sure, it took time but the results came!

By fixating on daily actions and breaking down your toughest goals into one or two actions that bring about the most results, you can drastically reduce the chances of placing unrealistic expectations on yourself whilst making substantial progress in small but noticeable ways. 

Watch what happens to your life after 30, 60 and 90 days of consistent actions! The small daily results accumulate into massive results and the realization of your unattainable goal!
