Ask Jay #15 –– How Do I Stay Focus After Working Towards My Dreams for 3 Years?


I need your advice I’ve been working towards my dreams for the last three in a half years, but I’ve only seen a moderate amount of success. I know that you’ve written about the “process” and how to push through it, but I feel as if I’ve been losing motivation lately. I need your help can you please give me some advice?

This is a common problem we all encounter from time to time especially after the initial excitement of our dream wears off. When we first write down our goals and dreams we are filled with joy and optimism. But when we are overwhelmed with obstacles, boredom or just lack of focus continuing going after said goal can be challenging. Here are three methods that can help you regain focus on your dream.

1. Simplify Your Goals – When we have massive goals, the road can be long and may be quite some time till we will see a reward for our efforts. When we take on a goal the first step we need to do is give ourselves a “pep talk”. Reassuring ourselves that we will feel rewarded at the end of our pursuit is like driving with no fuel.

2. Value Success – Sometimes when we are so focused on a specific goal we don’t take the time to be thankful for all the smaller success we have on the road to our ultimate goal.

3. Write Down Your Goals – To help us focus on our goals writing them down or create a vision board will assist in training our mind to think more about our goals and actually achieving them. Also, our brain thinks in terms of images so, if you choose the right pictures, it will serve as both an enjoyable and effective method to stay focused on your goals.

What are your thoughts how do you stay focus on our goals? Comment below & if you liked this article please share!

I am currently finishing my degree in something that has nothing to do with becoming a writer or entrepreneur so automatically it qualifies me to become one right! Follow me as I go through this journey called life to impact and encourage one person at a time.
