When There Doesn’t Seem To Be A Way, Hack the System.There is always a solution out there to achieving your goals, but when it’s not obvious, you have to get creative. When You Really Want Something, You Put It above Other Things You Also Want.
My advice for those having difficulties achieving their goals is to find your own way to hack the system: identify the biggest challenge standing in your way, and brainstorm creative ways to solve it. This may require some lifestyle sacrifices, but if your goal is truly a priority, it will be worth it.
Channel Your Energy Into Actualizing Your Goals, Rather Than Being Upset By What You Can’t Do. We each have our own way of perceiving the value of money and how well we align that value with our goals determines our ability to save.Saving becomes even more difficult for people whose priorities are necessities rather than luxuries, for example, for those who struggle to pay for student loans, food, or their children’s schooling.
Keep in mind, however, that while some priorities may seem less glamorous than others, they are nevertheless priorities. They are determined by the individual, and fluctuate depending on privilege, income, and life situation, and so on.
It’s all about identifying which goal supersedes your other goals, and finding a way to make it work within your means.
Everyone has downsides to their passions – it’s just a matter of choosing which crap you’re willing to deal with.
My advice for those looking to travel, or pursue another passion, is to identify your goals and organize your life around creating opportunities to pursue them. Rather than focusing on what you cannot do, recognize what you love and are willing to make sacrifices for.
Anything that you want in life requires discipline, sacrifice, and passion. If you are able to put your goal above all else, it is only a matter of time before you achieve it.
