Having a hard time finishing what you start? Read this!

Tuesday, 18 April 2017




Happy Easter celebrations! I hope you had a great time with friends and family? Hopefully you were able to squeeze some 'me time' for yourself.
So back to today's post. If you have had a problem I mean a huuuuuuuge problem with finishing something you started raise your hands! No lying o. God is watching ๐Ÿ˜œ


It's a problem for me though. I start so many things (especially if starting is equals to thinking of ideas in your head) and end up getting bored, demotivated or just interested in something else. I know you must have felt this way before but we cannot continue to have abandoned projects up and down. There comes a time when you have to focus on a project and see it through, whether you feel like it or not because no one will come and read your abandoned book, nobody will buy anything on your abandoned business page. Will they?

So let's talk. How do you really finish what you start?

Give your self a deadline
There is something about having an end in mind , it pushes you towards the goal. So for example if you are supposed to finish writing a business proposal or read a new book set a target for yourself. Determine what date and if possible time that project should be completed and do everything within your power to ensure that it is done. Without excuses.

Don't do too many things at the same time
For many of us our major problem is that we are involved in so many things and are gradually becoming overwhelmed. Only you, bead maker, baker, singer, writer, student and makeup artist. How will you cope? Selectively pick projects you will work on. You don't have to be everywhere or do everything.

My advice is this "Whatever you are doing, make sure you are passionate about it so you have enough motivation to see it through. However if it is a task you compulsorily have to do, probably work related, make sure you take things one at a time.

Connect with the end results 
Bankole Williams always says that people don't smash their goals because they don't have goals that inspire them. Goals that motivate them. Goals that make them wanna jump out of bed in the morning. Their goals don't give them any tangible reason to get up and keep moving. This means that if you want to finish what you start, connect with the end result, the reason why you started with the project.

 Let's to a quick exercise. 
Close your eyes and just imagine how different your life would be in a couple of years if you refuse to give up on that dream, talent or business. 

Pretty cool right? So why do you want to stop now? 

Anytime you feel down because of the nitty gritty of finishing your project and all the boring everyday tasks, remember why you started and what the end result can be provided you FINISH. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Are you ready to go back to what you abandoned?

Let me know how it goes.

Much Love
