3 Surefire Ways to Follow Through on Your Goals

作者: NYTALK管理者 点击:397 难度:高级
     Have you ever found yourself hyped up for a new project or program? You get started with full steam, and about two-thirds the way through, you start lagging. You lose interest, meet some stumbling blocks, and think, “Maybe I should just throw this project out.”
  
  无悔人生 勇追目标
  
  你会不会对某件新事物抱以三分热情?开始的时候斗志昂扬,接着半途而废。一遇到绊脚石,就丧失信心,然后很挫败地想:还是放弃眼前的努力算了。
  
  Well, you're not alone. Following through is one of the most challenging tasks, specifically when it comes to something you are doing for yourself. I say this because if you were working at a job for somebody else, I am sure you have no problem completing the task on time, and following through to the end. After all, your job and weekly pay depend on it.
  
  其实,不止你有那样的遭遇。世上最大的挑战就是始终如一地坚持,要是这个坚持关乎自己,难度尤甚。我这样说的依据是当你为别人效力时,肯定会将准时完成任务的标准贯彻到底。毕竟,那决定了你的业绩和薪水。
  
  However, for some reason, when it comes to your personal goals, you let things slide.
  
  遗憾的是,在追求个人目标途中心有旁骛之际,你就毅然放弃了。
  
  What gives?
  
  有没有搞错?
  
  Why the hell do we work harder for others than ourselves?
  
  为别人工作居然比为自己还卖力,这究竟是怎么了?
  
  Isn't that a little backwards?
  
  应该是颠倒了主次吧!
  
  Don't your dreams matter?
  
  你的梦想还在吗?

  
  If you said, “YES!” I have 3 ways to get you to follow-through on your goals.
  
  如果你有所醒悟,我就给你三条勇追目标的忠告吧。

  
  1. Decide If You Really Want It:
  
  This is a tough one. There are things we think we want, and then there are things we really want. Imagine you say to yourself, “I want to start taking Zumba classes.” Yet, you don't follow through. When you don't follow through, you need to ask yourself if you really want it. If you just say you want it because your friend is doing it, or because you read somewhere that it's fun, then you won't have the inner motivation to take action. However, when the motivation comes from within, the desire to take action is a lot stronger. Basically, you need to get honest with yourself, and decide if you are intrinsically motivated to take action, or if it is merely something you think you should be doing.
  

  坚定目标
  
  认清内心的渴望有点难度,世上有两样东西,一样是我们想要的,另外一样是我们渴望的。如果你中途放弃了目标,那就问问自己是否真有那么需要它。如果你的初衷仅仅是想追随朋友,或因小兴趣而致,那你就没有付之行动的内在动力。一旦内在动力爆发,执行力度绝对强硬。最为主要的还是诚实地面对自己,看自己是渴望炽烈地追求目标,还是仅仅想打发
时间而已。
  

  2. Wash Fear Aside:
  
  Once you establish that you want it, you may still encounter fear. You may think, “I really want to try Zumba, but I am afraid I will look silly… or, what if I don't know what I'm doing?” Those are the old fear patterns that are bound to come up. When you REALLY want something, the want must overpower the fear. This is where giving yourself a pep-talk works wonders to get you to take action, despite the fear. Just think about what I said earlier: if this was a job requirement, you would do it anyways. Well this is Project YOU. Decide to give yourself as much care and attention you would to your job. There will never be a magic pill to get you to take action. Life is too precious to not follow your dreams. Pep-talk yourself until you get yourself taking action. Imagine your life depends on it. Oh, it does.

  
  勇敢追求
  
  即使你坚定了目标,也会在追求的途中仓皇失措。有时会觉得,我超想跳尊巴,但又觉得自己跳起来很丑……有时都不知道该跳哪一拍。那些潜伏的恐惧也会接踵而至。如果你真的渴望去做某些事情,那份渴望定能克服恐惧。勇敢之心产生的奇迹能助你扫除一切阻碍,即使恐惧又怎样。仔细揣摩我前面说的话:如工作时遇到麻烦,你都会排除万难。那要是关于你自己的梦想呢?可否把对工作的热情和关心等量加在自己身上?世上没有任何魔法能驱使你追求梦想。人生也因梦想才显得那么珍贵。唯有你才能鼓励自己放手去追。生命的精彩全呈现在这追逐的过程里。真的全在这里。

  
  3. Schedule it in:
  
  Once you have decided that you want something and that you are ready to take action, you need to make sure you take action. Not all things can happen right now, in this moment. If they can, get to it! Otherwise, you must schedule it in your calendar, the same way you do a doctor's appointment or important meeting. Recognize that your commitments to yourself need the same care that commitments to others receive. Furthermore, when you write it down, it makes it more concrete. It is the first physical step to taking action. This action alone starts to build the momentum you need to continue taking action to following through on your goal.
  

  高瞻远瞩
  
  一旦你决定了要为梦想奋力一搏,那么你就要有个精密的计划。实现梦想并非眼前的一步之举。机会来临之时,只有经过万全的准备才能将其一举拿下!要是时机未到,就要细细地规划一下,像约见医生或开重要会议一样写个行程表。对自己的承诺跟对他人的承诺同样重要。白纸黑字地写出计划,梦想会变得更加明确。然这仅是实际行动的第一步。它能为后面追求的道路打下了夯实的基础。
