When you don’t want to settle, it’s important to remember your “why.” Why did you originally choose your goal? What are the benefits of achieving it? And what are the consequences of not achieving it?
It’s also helpful to have a support system in place. Surround yourself with people who will encourage you and help keep you on track. Finally, be sure to celebrate each accomplishment along the way, no matter how small it may seem. This will help keep your motivation high and prevent you from becoming discouraged.
