3.) Set strict boundaries; no boundary is silly.
You have to develop the mindset that you must do whatever it takes to achieve this goal. Our thoughts, what we listen to, what we talk about, and what we read about and watch, all have a say in what we do. Music puts us in certain moods, our thoughts influence our decisions, certain conversations can lead to certain choices, and certain movies or videos can spark interest in us. You know where I’m going with this. Be careful with what you watch, read, listen to, and talk about. It might sound silly to the common person that you have to do all this, But the reality is that no matter what someone is trying to achieve, they have to go places others will not go . This can mean a strict discipline. I know a professional athlete who monitors and calculates everything she does in terms of food, because she has to be the right way to achieve the right goal. (certain amounts of fat, muscle, etc.) To me, that may sound extreme as an ex-athlete who ate whatever and perform good back in my old days, but the fact is, that I didn’t have the goal she has. I wasn’t trying to be the best at my sport, and I wasn’t at the level she is and aspires to be. You get the point.
