This Is Why You’re Still In The Same Place As You Were Last Year

What changes is it that you want to make in your life? What did you wish for last year that didn’t come true? Were they all realistic wishes? What did you do to achieve them?

So many questions and so little answers…

I’m writing this post from my experience. I’ve been far too long the person who has looked back and asked myself, “Why am I still in the same place as I was in last year?!” “Why has there been zero improvements so far?!”

I’ve always seen myself as an ambitious person who can easily start projects (Hello Aries!), but in some areas in my life, I’ve not been very successful, and before I could never understand why…

Until recently…


How to succeed with your goals

Do you know what happens that day you wake up, and you slam your fist against the table, saying you’ve had enough?
Magic starts to happen…

When the person has reached a turning point in life where she feels that she can’t continue in the same ways, that immediate change must happen.

It’s called awakening, but not in the spiritual type of sense.
What I’m talking about is when you wake up, smell the coffee and realize you need to take responsibility for your life, your actions, whatever it is that you want to do!

This awakening is gold because it’s the beginning of the momentum when your engine heats up and you are ready to begin this journey. But you’ll need fuel to drive, and your motivation will fuel your car until your end destination, the only question is where to get it from? It’s easy to feel motivated today, but not as much tomorrow, and usually, that’s where your journey stops.

Various sources of fuel:

Fuel #1: When you’re really really really fed up with something, and you’re so desperate for change, you can’t go back to the way things are…

Fuel #2: When the end goal exists you like crazy…

Fuel #3: When you know that you have no other choice but making something happen….

Fuel #4: When you feel a burning desire for the outcome and want it badly enough despite all sacrifices, you will have to make…

Fuel #5: When you focus on how happy you will be with your goal accomplished and can feel the benefits coming…

But the reason why you’re still where you were last year is most probably some of these…

  1. You didn’t dare to do what you really wanted to do
  2. You didn’t take the necessary action steps
  3. You didn’t make the necessary sacrifices
  4. You quit too early
  5. You never started
  6. You only dreamt about it but never acted upon it
  7. You let negative thoughts hold you back
  8. You got so overwhelmed it made you paralyzed
  9. Your worries got in your way
  10. You got in your way

Anyone recognize themselves? I do, in all of them.


How to succeed with your goals

I decided to take action 7 months ago. Once I got my momentum going, I couldn’t remember anymore how my life was before my inactive state. Now I know I could never go back to the person I was back then. It was worth facing my demons and feel uncomfortable at times because life has got more meaning now.

When I will hit 1 year, I will look back and say “Wow, I’m so glad I started a year ago, look how much I’ve done so far!” – And that’s all because I decided to focus and not let any of the blockages above get to me. But sometimes they did of course, especially on bad days.

But I’ve learned to shake them off and just continue in the discomfort. After having experienced them ruin so many of my years Not-so-productive years, I’ve sworn to myself never to let that happen ever again…
This time, I’m going to be where I want to be, year after year. My mind is set, my tank is fuelled, the journey is yet to unfold.
