Struggling to achieve your goals, despite the iron-clad strategy? Then you need to take a closer look at this important element that you’re probably forgetting, the secret to achieving your goals.
Have you ever wondered why you haven’t achieved your goals, even though you might have had the best strategy in place?
My bet is that you didn’t work on the OTHER more important element of achieving your goals, the foundation of it all, which is your mindset.
What is your mindset? And why is it so important?
Because your mindset determines your thought process, which in turn affects your choices and decisions, which impact how you approach towards your goals and whether you stay consistent or not with your efforts.
Without the right mindset, you will encounter many challenges along the way:
- You will constantly question yourself, doubt yourself;
- You will undermine your own efforts and beliefs;
- You will constantly go around in circles instead of focusing your energy and efforts on what you’re doing trying to achieve.
Your mindset has the power to inspire and empower you, but it also has the power to throw you off track.
And if you learn to manage and re-direct your mindset towards more empowering, inspired and happy thoughts and beliefs, then you will be able to cultivate and create your dream life. Because you will have the emotional and physical energy to do so.
But let’s take a step, and let’s talk about your mindset and how that relates to achieving your goals.
What is Your Mindset
Your mindset is where everything begins. How you interpret situations that you encounter. How you feel and react to situations and people. How you process information.
Your mindset is also how you make decisions and where your actions stem from.
Because your mind controls your thoughts, and your thoughts control your emotions, and your emotions guide your actions.
Your thoughts create your reality.
If you believe something to be true, then that’s how you will feel about it. So if you want to transform your life, then you need to first work on mindset.

Your mindset will determine the trajectory of your journey. It will determine whether you will give up or keep going. Whether you will be beaten down and STAY down, or whether you will constantly pick yourself back up, dust yourself off, and try again, and again, and again, until you achieve your goals.
Your mindset will determine how you FEEL throughout this journey of achieving your goals and creating your dream life.
How Your Mindset Impacts Your Goals
So how does your mindset impact the outcome of your goals?
Think about it, if you don’t believe that achieving a goal is possible, then you will never try. And keep in mind that this belief might be subconscious and you might not even be aware of it. So it’s important to cultivate the right mindset to be able to achieve your goals.
Your mindset will determine what you believe is possible, what you believe you can or can’t do, and what you ultimately dream up when you set your goals.
Will you have a mindset of abundance, where you truly believe that you have access to all the resources and time that you need to achieve your goals? Or will you have a scarcity mindset where you never have enough of anything, time, money or resources?
This mindset of abundance versus a mindset of scarcity also relates to your beliefs about yourself and your capacity – what you believe you can or can’t do and how much you will push yourself out of your comfort to constantly challenge yourself.
When it comes to achieving your goals, you will need to cultivate a mindset of growth where you understand that everything that happens is an opportunity to learn and grow from it.
Having a mindset of growth will help you appreciate any situation and to take it as a way to become stronger and to practice building your capacity and strength.
Because as you set out to achieve your goals, you will inevitably encounter challenges and setbacks, and you can either choose to grow from it, or you can choose to give up. You can choose to change your approach and find a more effective solution, or you can choose to feel frustrated and give up if something is not working.
Your mindset will determine how you choose to approach and handle any situation and challenge.

Another important mindset shift to help you achieve your goals is to cultivate more gratitude in your life.
It’s about learning how to appreciate the journey, the struggle, the challenges, but also being grateful for what you already have in your life, regardless of the goals you’re trying to achieve.
The moment you truly start appreciating yourself and the life that you have, the more you will see you will bring to your life more abundance, positivity and inspiration.
Because it’s about the journey and not only the destination. Yes, I want you to achieve your goals, but more importantly, I want you to enjoy the process, to be present in the moment, to feel happy and fulfilled.
