How To Persevere and Achieve All Of Your Goals

"I have absolutely no patience. What can I do?"

"All my goals are falling by the wayside. How do I accomplish them?"

"I have too many goals and not enough time (or patience). Any ideas?"

"How on Earth do I learn to persevere?"

Having precise, realistic goals can help you achieve the life you've always dreamed of.

It will require both patience and time, but some of life's most satisfying experiences are those that involve staying focused on a goal until you achieve it.

Along the way, you will likely experience times when, no matter how hard you may try, you're stymied by roadblocks, potholes, obstacles, and speed bumps blocking your path.

Here are 7 strategies on how to persevere and achieve anything and everything you set out to accomplish:

Take responsibility to keep creativity going.

Draw pictures of what you hope to achieve. Make a storyboard of your plan of action. Design a vision board of what your goal pathway looks like and include how your life will differ after achieving your goal.


Arrest negative thoughts.

As soon as negative thoughts creep in, think, "Stop it now" and mean it. Then, replace that negativity with an "I will persevere and achieve" message. Tell yourself, "I can and will do it."


Review past achievements.

Give yourself props for goals you've achieved before. What were those goals? Use these reminder techniques to find and connect with your confidence.


Commit to goals.

Remind yourself daily about why you want to reach a particular goal. Perhaps you'll earn more money, get a better job, live in a place you prefer, or protect your family's future. Stay the course by re-committing to goals each morning.



Along with committing wholeheartedly to goals, you've got to put in the work. Tell yourself your effort will, in the end, be worth it.


Use your schedule.

No matter what your goal, consistently schedule the time to work toward it. If you don't keep a calendar now, start. Look at your entire week or month and what's scheduled with a quick glance. Write in when you'll work toward goals.

  • Maybe it will be Tuesday evenings from 7:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. or Saturday mornings from 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. Follow your schedule consistently.


Clarify goals.

Write them and place copies everywhere inside your house, briefcase, and calendar. When you're sure about what you want, then you can diligently work toward those goals.


There will be always be obstacles and potholes to block your path forward.

However, if you can identify them, overcome and persevere, you can navigate them successfully and achieve any goal you set for yourself.
