10 Words and Phrases that Achieve Goals

“The future rewards those who press on. I don’t have time to feel sorry for myself. I don’t have time to complain. I’m going to press on.” President Barack Obama.

Great people know that no matter how discouraging your circumstances, you alone can decide to either keep climbing or quit at the first sign of defeat or disappointment. That is because they have reached some point in their lives where they were pushed to quit, but they never did. Remember being able to dream also means you have what it takes to make your dream a reality. So, whenever you feel the need, even to consider quitting on your goals, think about the people that have battled with the same decision you are fighting with and decided not to quit.

Start taking advantage of the power of words when setting your goals. Words can ensure you achieve anything you want.

You can achieve any goal you set and using the following sentences or words can help:

  1. I have what it takes.

   The only way of knowing you have what it takes is by trying. If you don’t try, you will never know how far you can go. As you continue carrying out the kind of training that is required to reach what you are aiming for, also learn to speak positively. Believe you have what it takes to get that promotion. Confess that you have what it takes to expand your client base. Look in the mirror each day and remind yourself that you have what it takes even when it doesn’t seem like it.

  • My work is important.

   If you stop undervaluing your work, you will gain the drive you crave to create the life you want and do so immaculately. If you know your work is important, you will act like your work is important. Once your actions show and your words go with your belief, your results will show.

  • I am an achiever.

   Saying you are an achiever, knowing you are an achiever, and acting like an achiever will turn you into an achiever. It’s that simple!

  • I am focused.

Remain focused on your goal and speak it. Making room for distractions will always draw you a step farther from achieving your goals. If your goal is to be a better parent, for example, refuse to entertain anything that interferes with spending quality time with your family. Be there to offer sound advice and show your children how much you appreciate them.

Bring your vision to life by reflecting on these famous quotes from the world’s highest achievers:

  • “You do not learn to walk by following the rules. You learn to walk by doing and falling over.” -Richard Branson
  • “Do the one thing you think you cannot do. Fail at it. Try again. Do better the second time. The only people who never tumble are those who never mount the high wire. This is your moment. Own it.” -Oprah Winfrey
  • “The people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do.” -Steve Jobs
  • “If you are not stubborn, you will give up on experiments too soon. If you are not flexible, you will pound your head against the wall, and you won’t see a different solution to a problem you’re trying to solve.” -Jeff Bezos
  • “Everyone’s dream will come true if you just stick to it and work hard.” -Serena Williams
  • “You measure the size of the accomplishment by the obstacles you have to overcome to reach your goals.” -Booker T. Washington

Being a go-getter requires a go-getter mentality. If you have trained your mind to doubt your capacity to get what you want, start overriding such thoughts with positive words. No one has it easy in life. Everyone has their share of problems and obstacles. We all feel like quitting when the going gets tough, but only those who refuse to give in to the feeling make it big.

You need to understand that you are the only one who has the power to silence the noise and achieve great things in your life. So, forget about being underestimated. Forget about failing. Forget about disappointments and start working on bringing your ideas to life. Nothing can stand in your way if you rely on the power of words.
