You are one step closer to your dream. This is probably why doubt is creeping in. You ask yourself whether or not you’ll reach your dream and if it will actually bring you happiness. You ask if you have what it takes---the skills and the resources, the confidence---that your big dream requires. You suddenly have cold feet and think what if you just give up?
Remember, Mama raised no quitter and you are not giving up after everything you’ve invested just to get to this point. When the going gets tough, I usually finish it with, “breath.” It’s probably what you need right now to stay focused. Don’t persecute yourself for getting sidetracked. Everybody does at one point. But not everybody continues after a moment of doubt. Be one of those who won’t give up and would strive to live that life you’ve always been dreaming about. Because what is there to lose? If you give up, you risk a bigger price and that is living a life full of regret and what-ifs. At least, if this doesn’t work, you know in your heart that you tried your best and gave it you are all.
We are cheering for you with tips on how to not give up on your dream. It simply is not an option.
1. Adjust the means.
If you’ve been doing this time and again and nothing’s been happening, it’s time to take a step back and assess what you might be doing wrong. Ask for other people’s help so that you could see in other lenses what your journey looks like, what could improve and what strength you should maintain. Do not change the dream but adjust the means to get there.
Purchase a FlexiSpot Height Adjustable Whiteboard standing desk where you can jot down your ideas and actionable steps at any time while you work. This will help you see in a glance what you still have to do or even give you a gauge of how near you are to your goal. This desk is flippable and can be adjusted to five different angles depending on what activity you are doing. You may write with a dry-erase marker on the board anytime and erase it with a fabric or cloth.
2. Stick to your purpose.
If you have a strong will and you know why you are doing this, it won’t be easy for you to give up. So many give up on their dreams because their purpose is not strong enough. They easily get disheartened and give up because they don’t see the point of trying anymore.
Remind yourself of why you are doing this in the first place. The Flexispot Corkboard may help you with daily affirmations. It can be easily mounted to the wall where you can pin post-its or paper notes to remind you of your purpose and affirm yourself that you could do it. You may also cut out images from a magazine that represent what you want to achieve in life. This can serve as your vision board.
3. Focus on the positives.
Instead of dwelling on the negatives, focus on what you can do at the moment. Be thankful for the resources that you have at your disposal and maximize them. See what you can do now and take it one step at a time.
To help you focus, a great under-desk addition will be the Sit 2Go 2-in-2 Fitness Chair of FlexiSpot. Adding movement to your sedentary work can make your mind stop from wandering and focus on what you have to do. This improves efficiency so that you’ll be able to do more in order to achieve your dreams. The desk bike has a whisper-quiet pedaling system that no noise would distract you from whatever you are doing. The seat is height adjustable and the resistance levels customizable that you can change every now and then for you to work at your most comfortable.
4. Turn setbacks into strengths or opportunities.
Don’t look at failure as a permanent stop sign. Failure will just help you become better and stronger than when you started. As the Japanese say, “Nana korobi, ya oki” or in English, “Fall down seven times, stand up eight.” Every failure, setback, or mistake will allow you to learn and grow. Be thankful for them and don’t let them discourage you from reaching your dreams.
Another way to make you alert and focus is through using the Folding treadmill 08 of FlexiSpot. This can be used in your under desk with the speed completely adjustable to whatever your need is or can do while working. It can also be connected to your phone through an app that will allow you to control the equipment without having to kneel down and adjust. Through the mobile app, you can change your preferred speed and you could stop it and make it run again at any time.
5. Celebrate the little wins.
For you to reach your dream, you have to enjoy the process. The only way you could do that is if you appreciate your little wins, your small victories in between. For sure, you accomplish something in a day and that alone leads you one step closer to your dream. Be thankful for that. This positive energy will help you not to give up and to always reach for the stars.
If you’ve been working hard, don’t hold back from rewarding yourself. For you not to feel regret, you may invest in something that can help you achieve your dream. Why not buy a standing desk, a standing desk converter, or an ergonomic office chair from FlexiSpot? This will make you more efficient with your work and will also guarantee a pleasurable working experience every day.
6. Build a strategy.
When you have a clear, solid plan, the chances of you giving up on your dreams are slim. You already know what your next step will be even while doing one step in the plan. This removes the uncertainty that often makes us give up on our goals. So stick to something specific, measurable, achievable, realistic, and timely. This will make your dream make more sense in your head.
Use FlexiSpot’s spacious whiteboard to help you remember everything you have to do in a day. With a dry-erase marker, you can easily tick off every step you’ve finished doing. You may erase it at the end of the day and write a new list the next day.
