These 10 disciplines are easy to do, but they are also easy not to do. It all comes down to choice. We need to take responsibility for our own dreams and goals because unless we take the necessary action, we’ll never see the results.
There is a structured framework we can follow to see our goals through. If we skip a step or two because they make us feel uncomfortable, or we’re afraid, or we just don’t want to do them, then we may eventually get to the finish line, but it’s going to take us that much longer and probably be that much more frustrating.
Just like you need all the ingredients listed in a recipe to make a delicious cookie, you need all the ingredients we talk about today to make your dreams come true. You might be able to make things happen without one or two or even five of the disciplines, but it will absolutely take longer and be more complicated, and here’s the kicker. The longer it takes to see the results, the easier it is to quit before they show up. These 10 disciplines are the shortcut! Why not bake a delicious cookie today by following the recipe to success?

Listen to the full episode to go in-depth with these 10 ingredients to crush your goals:
ONE: Do you have a specific goal or dream written down? Not just in your head … but is it written down and in front of you every day? Can you see it?
TWO: Do you have a clear, meaningful WHY? You need something motivating to drive you, something that will actually get you excited to get out of bed every day, something that keeps you awake at night because you’re too excited to sleep! What is your biggest motivator really?
THREE: Do you have a visual of your goal? Do you put pictures that symbolize your dream in front of you so they can be a focus in your daily life? The more you see them, the more apt you are to put the work in to go after them. Keep them top of mind!
FOUR: Do you have promises you can turn to when you need them? The more rooted you are in who you are in Christ, the more confident you will be to take the action that will drive you to your goal! Knowing that it’s his ability that makes us capable is powerful!
FIVE: Do you have a plan in place to work toward your goal? A plan is definitely a key ingredient. A plan provides direction and a starting ground. When you have a plan you have something to reflect on and make tweaks and adjustments to.
SIX: Are you on a personal growth journey? If you aren’t willing to grow yourself, you’ll never leave the place you’re at. Do you take the time to read or listen to success audios, or take courses to continue your education?
SEVEN: Do you have a positive association to grow in? Who are you surrounding yourself with? Do they uplift you, support you, and encourage you? Are they growing themselves and excited about life? Do you feel better about yourself after you leave them than when you arrived?
EIGHT: Do you have an accountability partner? Who do you hold yourself accountable to? If you don’t have someone to answer to, you’ll likely quit on yourself or never start.
NINE: Do you have a coach? A coach can speak into your life unlike anyone else. She can provide the tough love that we need to get going and keep going until we get the job done.
TEN: Are you bold about your goals? Do you share your goals? Do you speak them out loud? Are you willing to let others know what you’re doing?
These 10 disciplines make up the formula for success in goal setting! How many of these things can you check off the list? How many are you doing right now? Which ones do you need to add? Get honest with yourself and figure out how to incorporate the disciplines in your life that you are not currently doing. This is the recipe for success. It’s the recipe for your dreams coming true!
