Ever wondered how you can reach your goals quicker? Maybe you are procrastinating and find it difficult to do the work or there are circumstances in your life that are keeping you from reaching your goals. I’ve been spending a lot of time on this, reaching your goals does not just require hard work. There is more to it, you have to create a daily routine which you need to follow and repeat in order to establish a habit.
However, let’s face it, in today’s life we struggle to get things done. There are a lot of distractions and responsibilities that need your attention and because of this reason it is vital that we create habits that we follow every day which will push us towards reaching our goals.
How it works
Our brain learns by repetition. Your brain is divided into two parts namely the conscious mind and the subconscious mind. Your conscious mind is the thinking part of your brain where your reason, imagination, memory, perceptions and intuition, for example, are active. Your subconscious mind controls your body functioning, it is where your habits are located, where everything is happening without thinking.
Your actions and thoughts are created in the conscious mind and if you repeat them regularly it will eventually translate into the subconscious mind to become a habit, it will become an automated subconscious action. When it is an automated action you will realize that you are doing something without even thinking about it, it becomes second nature.
Take for example, when you are learning to drive a car or play the piano. After the repetition that is required to learn how to drive or play the piano you will subconsciously start to do so without even thinking about how to do it.
How is this relevant to me as entrepreneur?
If we as Entrepreneurs can by repetition establish habits that will push us closer to our goals on a daily basis, imagine where you and I would be in a year’s time. For me to be honest, it was hard at first to get my repetition going, however I knew if I did certain things in my business that would take me closer to my goals, on a daily basis, then eventually those habits will get stuck in my subconscious mind. I will do the things required without thinking and without procrastination.
As an online entrepreneur I repeatedly do the things I have to in order to bring me closer to my goals. It is important to keep an online presence and to work on your business on a daily basis. The only way to make sure you get into the habit, is by repeatedly doing and prioritizing the things that will bring you closer to your goals. You'll find that daily tasks are so much more efficient and easier when you have established it as a habit. So establish habits in your business and life and you’ll see how those habits bring you closer to your goals.
