Affirmation: Setting Priorities Helps Me To Be Patient With Goals

I go through life patiently pursuing my goals. I am able to achieve a sense of calmness because I prioritize. Doing first things first helps me to be patient in going after the things that are important to me.

Although there are several targets that I set my eyes on, I am realistic in my expectations. I recognize that it is wise to go after them in stages.

When I focus on one major project at a time, explosive success is more attainable. Dedicating my time to a single project helps me to develop strong ideas. I have the energy to turn ideas into reality when I put all my efforts into achieving one goal.

By looking at the overall benefits of my goals, I am able to identify the ones that are most important at a given time.

I clear my mind of other goals except for my current priority. I accept that there is a time to achieve all the things I view as important to a successful life.

Today, my mind and heart are at peace because I avoid the chaos of overachieving. My focus each day is to take one step at a time towards my goals. I recognize that the things I desire are possible when I exercise patience in attaining them.

Self-Reflection Questions:

1. What is the most effective strategy for me to prioritize for optimal results?
2. What happens to the appeal of my goals when I push myself to prioritize them?
3. How can I develop greater patience with my goals?
