Most people want to feel successful in some way. However, many of us feel overwhelmed when looking at the steps involved in reaching our goals. We get discouraged before we even start. Don’t let that be you. Take these tips and achieve your success with less effort! Note: This is the 2nd post in my “Doing Less to Achieve” More series.

The secret to actually achieving your goals is to work smarter, not harder. I know, I know. That’s not really a secret, but it really is true. Of course, the first step is to actually get started. So, let’s do that right now!!
These six tips will ensure that you achieve your goals with less effort:
Break it into Bite Sized Bits
When working toward a big goal, it can be helpful to break it down into smaller, more manageable pieces. By taking small steps, you’ll be able to see your progress and feel motivated to keep going.
Set Realistic Deadlines
Giving yourself a timeline for completing your goal will help you stay on track and avoid getting sidetracked. Make sure the deadline is realistic, however, or you may feel discouraged if you don’t meet it.
Keep it Simple
Don’t try and pile everything into your plan at once. Instead, focus on one thing at a time and keep things simple and easy. Know what it takes to accomplish your goal and don’t clutter it up with extra steps. Not making it complicated goes a long way to success with less effort.
Create a Support System
Don’t be afraid to reach out. It’s always helpful to have people you can rely on for support and encouragement. Whether it’s family, friends, or even an online community, having people in your corner will make achieving your goal less daunting.
Visualize Your Goal
When you can visualize your goal in your mind, it becomes much easier to work toward it. Spend some a few minutes imagining yourself achieving your goal. Then, take that thought further to examine how you’ll feel once you succeed. Think about the path you want to take, what you believe the outcomes will be and how you’ll react to the situation. Visualizing like this will help keep you focused and motivated and help you adjust your plan as needed.
Belief in Yourself is Key for Success with Less Effort
One thing to remember when working toward any goal is that you can do it. Let’s say that again. You can do it! Believe in your ability to achieve it, no matter how big or small your goal may be. Any time you feel doubt creeping in, remind yourself of all the times you’ve achieved something you once thought was impossible. Not only that but remember that failure is often not as bad as it seems and is required to get to where you want to be in life.
Keep these tips in mind, and you’ll be well on your way to achieving your goals with less effort than you thought.
- Take things one step at a time.
- Do your due diligence to determine how to do something most efficiently.
- Set deadlines and simplify the process as much as possible.
- Finally, don’t forget to believe in yourself during the process too. You can do it as long as you stay focused and committed.
