Sometimes in life, there are things that don’t really make sense, but they attract you with a force that don't let you focus on anything else. They create burning desires that seem to lift you up way above all of the obstacles and make you rush towards the goal with incredible speed.
Sometimes these desires appear when your mind and heart tell you what your real goals are and what you should do. If that is the case, you must oblige and rush to the goal with everything you got.
But the problem is that sometimes these desires that appear in our mind can be false. Sometimes, instead of lifting us up and giving us an unfair advantage instead, they lower us to the trenches, making reaching the goal nearly impossible.
The difference between the two is that one desire is authentic and real. It is something that you want deep inside of you, and that will benefit you immensely.
On the other hand, there are others that you made up because of other’s people thinking. It is as a dogma that tries to navigate you in life and, in the end, only making you more lost in the maze of life.
That is why even if you have the burning motivation to start doing something, critically assess whenever the end result aligns with your life goals and if both your heart and your intuition are giving you a push. Sometimes it is just your mind trying to confuse you and give you a reason to go forward.
The initial reasons to push can be endless, starting from wanting to get a better job and to a loved one that you want to deserve. All of those reasons that you have in your mind listed are the things that really must make you even more motivated.
Please don’t put them in the back of your head. Write them down, print pictures of them, draw them. That not only going to let you take time to think about all of them individually and test whenever they are real but also let you each time you see the pictures or read your entries in the diary, to get motivated and remind yourself why you started on that journey to begin with.
Most of the time, if your goal is tough and you require hard work, transforming it into a habit to slowly chip at it away is, in my opinion, the best way to go about goal achieving. But even during the habits, especially those that take a lot of your time, questioning the reasons why you started can be common.
That is why having this list of reminders of why you started can be a game-changer.
And the most important of all, if you have something to achieve there is only one thing to get there faster.
Start now. Get perfect later.
