Have you wondered about what it takes to achieve your dreams and aspirations in life? Here are top 7 tips from Olympic javelin thrower Inga Stasiulionyte on how you can change the way you can achieve anything in life.

By Ms. Christine Cheung


These days people think starting a business is all about profit and maximising returns. However, what is equally important is the mindset entrepreneurs and business owners need to have when approaching goals. How do we achieve our dreams and aspirations is linked very closely with the process at which we have internally in setting goals and obtaining success. On the topic of achieve anything you want in life, Lithuanian Olympic javelin thrower Inga Stasiulionyte provides tips to achieve anything.

1. Focus On Commitment, Not Motivation

“Just how committed are you to your goal? How important is it for you, and what are you willing to sacrifice in order to achieve it? If you find yourself fully committed, motivation will follow.”

Commitment and being able to finish what was started is very important in success. Too many times have people abandoned ideas due to a lack of commitment to the idea. Make sure if you are doing to start a business, follow through and find like minded people that will motivate you.


2. Seek Knowledge, Not Results.

“If you focus on the excitement of discovery, improving, exploring and experimenting, your motivation will always be fueled. If you focus only on results, your motivation will be like weather—it will die the minute you hit a storm. So the key is to focus on the journey, not the destination. Keep thinking about what you are learning along the way and what you can improve.”

People do not always realise sometimes that what matters is the process and not the result. Most businesses throw in the towel after a lacklustre first month performance. However, what did you learn in this first month? What do you think can be improved to ensure profitability? these are questions, we need to examine, improve and not being only focused on the result.

If you spend the time to learn you will definitely achieve results.

3. Get rid of stagnating thoughts.

“Thoughts influence feelings and feelings determine how you view your work. You have a lot of thoughts in your head, and you always have a choice of which ones to focus on: the ones that will make you emotionally stuck (fears, doubts) or the ones that will move you forward (excitement, experimenting, trying new things, stepping out of your comfort zone).”

When we fear, there is no action. Those that are successful tend to be individuals that constantly challenge themselves and step outside their comfort zone. If you are happy with the status quo then by all means stay, but if you really want to get anywhere in life, positive thoughts and making changes is the hallmarks of success.


4. Get Rid of Distractions.

“Meaningless things and distractions will always be in your way, especially those easy, usual things you would rather do instead of focusing on new challenging and meaningful projects. Learn to focus on what is the most important. Write a list of time-wasters and hold yourself accountable to not do them.”

Making your self feel comfortable with no action, or doing things that get your business nowhere, these are the types of distractions that do not take you where you want to be.

It's good to treat yourself sometimes to prevent from feeling burnt out, but too much indulgence is not going to achieve your goals. Stay focused and don't be distracted.


5. Don’t Rely on Others.

“You should never expect others to do it for you, not even your partner, friend or boss. They are all busy with their own needs. No one will make you happy or achieve your goals for you. It’s all on you.”

Only by your own action as an individual will you be able to achieve your goals. Business owners need to focus on how their actions can translate or set the direction for how they want to develop and succeed.


6. Don’t Rely on Others.

“You should never expect others to do it for you, not even your partner, friend or boss. They are all busy with their own needs. No one will make you happy or achieve your goals for you. It’s all on you.”

Only by your own action as an individual will you be able to achieve your goals. Business owners need to focus on how their actions can translate or set the direction for how they want to develop and succeed.


7. Make Plans

“Know your three steps forward. You do not need more. Fill out your weekly calendar, noting when you will do what and how. When-what-how is important to schedule. Review how each day went by what you learned and revise what you could improve.”

It is only through making plans can we truly know where we are going. Plans need to be revised. Plans need to be realistic. It is only through the planning process do we know where we want to go.


So what to do now?

You lack motivation not because you are lazy or don’t have a goal. Even the biggest stars, richest business people or the most accomplished athletes get lost sometimes. What makes them motivated is the curiosity about how much better or faster they can get. So above all, be curious, and this will lead you to your goals and success.
