The One Thing Necessary to Achieve a Goal

The One Thing Necessary to Achieve a Goal

Have no fear, this is not going to be some long-winded article about all the deep, mind-numbing brainstorming and emotional things you need to do in order to achieve a goal, any goal.

Nope. Not even close!

In fact, we are going the completely opposite route.

We are cutting out all the BS and we are just going to level with you, in the most direct way we know how.

Ready? Truly have a goal you want to achieve and need to know what the ONE THING you must do in order to succeed is?

How to Achieve a Goal

Pay attention now…here it goes!


Boom! Mind-blowing isn’t it?

A truly unexpected revelation of MASSIVE PROPORTIONS right?

Not likely. Honestly, if you were expecting some latest, greatest magic plan, pill or potion, we aren’t even sorry if we let you down.

Here’s why…

The Cold, Hard Truth About Achieving Goals

All the GOALS in the world are IRRELEVANT if the tasks NECESSARY to reach them DON’T get done. – JJH

Whether you want to hear it or not, your success in achieving almost any goal you have in mind comes down to one thing…YOUR EFFORT!

We don’t put pen to paper (so to speak) in order to sugarcoat things for you and your fellow followers.

We believe wholeheartedly in presenting facts and the cold, hard truth, in all we say and write.

If we truly have any desire at all to help you live a DECIDED LIFE, we know we must, at all times, not tell you what you might want to hear, but instead, say what NEEDS TO BE SAID.

So, when it comes to achieving goals, the single most important thing you will need to do, day in, day out, is TAKE ACTION.

No ifs, ands, or buts about it…

  • Without action…NO CHANGE OCCURS.
  • In short, without action…ONLY FAILURE IS POSSIBLE.

No matter what the goal, a fitness goal, a health goal, an educational goal, a business or work goal, a lifestyle goal, a travel goal, etc, if you do not take action, MAKE MOVES, you are merely hoping to get lucky.

We can probably all agree…that is not the best way to get where you want to go. Ever!

The Steps Needed to Achieve a Goal

We are going to make this simple. Really simple, in fact.

Just three steps…

  1. Decide what your GOAL is!
  2. Decide what ONE THING you can do right now to move the ball closer to that goal!

It really doesn’t ever need to be any more difficult than this.

Give yourself a fighting chance for crying out loud.

One little thing, done RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW, can be all you need to create MOMENTUM and help you get where you want to go.

Far too many overwhelm themselves thinking about ALL that needs to be done in order to achieve a goal.

Instead, focus ONLY that which can, or must be done NEXT!

When your focus remains on the very next ONE THING you can do to make progress, day in, day out, you will be amazed at how much further along you can, and will be, in days and weeks.

Winning any race requires that FIRST STEP be taken, no?

It also requires the very NEXT STEP to be taken too, right?

The finish line is not even a remote possibility without the first step, the next step, and the last step is it?

So ask yourself right now, what “next step” can I take, at this moment, to get me closer to where I want to be.

As soon as you have an idea as to what that one thing is, that next task…DO IT!

No hesitation, no pause, no additional thought! ACT!

Do this again, and again, day after day, one bite, one decision, one step, one task at a time…ANYTHING becomes possible.

A Plan to Succeed

As we promised, from the outset, to always be brutally honest, it is important we discuss the BIG PICTURE for just a moment as well.

You do not need to know, at this time, EVERY SINGLE STEP that needs to be taken to achieve your goal, to reach your destination.  However, at some point, it will make a lot of sense to sit down and map out the things that must be done.

In fact, this could, and should, be one of your next steps once your momentum has begun to roll.

Be warned, however, if you attempt this process too early, you will get overwhelmed, maybe even disheartened.

Some of you will almost certainly suffer from ANALYSIS PARALYSIS!

No! Exactly opposite of what we want and you need.

So, instead of worrying about this list too soon, let’s just tackle our ONE THING, each day, for at least the next few days in order to get started.

A friendly suggestion though…START A GOAL “NOTE” now!

This, in fact,  could be your VERY FIRST STEP

  1. Open up your favorite “notes” app on your phone.
  2. Start a new note specifically for the goal in question.
  3. Title it accordingly.
  4. Begin a “checklist” with “Create Goal Note” as the very first task.
  5. Add to this list every time another “step to be taken” crosses your mind.

You will be amazed, once you start this simple process, how often you begin to think about and focus on your goal.

Guess what?  What you think about, what you find yourself focusing on the most, will determine what you do and how you feel.

After all, this is really what you want to achieve. You want to be so “locked-in” to your goal that it is the very FIRST THING you think about when you wake in the morning and the very LAST THING you think about before you sleep at night.

When this becomes your normal, your success is all but guaranteed…as long as you keep taking that VERY NEXT STEP.

Enough talk. Let’s get to it! The race is about to begin. Your next step awaits. No good luck from us. Instead…


Always Remember…

You only have one life to live, one body to live it in, so take care of it. Progress, not perfection. Good, better, best with your food intake and some form of movement daily. Get your nutritional foundation from food, supplement where necessary, and drink plenty of water. We are here to help so feel free to drop us comments or questions as often as you’d like and always consult your physician before making any changes to your diet or exercise regiment.

    Hi Dear!

    I completely agree with you, just do it now! We lose time and opportunities trying to overthink things. We want to be sure of all the steps that we need to take in order to realize a project. But the reality is that you will never get to secure everything, start by taking the first step and the rest will unfold as you go.

    I used to be an overthinker until I lose a massive opportunity because I took too long to react. Since that loss, I will rather fail than to try because I want to know everything before I start.

      As they say, “The only way to truly fail, is to quit trying”. Action leads to experience or success! 🎯

    Thanks for sharing these advice… Feels nice to read this and understand that I am actually moving towards my goals more that I think. Every time I work on my goals I am actually moving closer to them, and its just as simple as that. I think its important to divide goals in to smaller goals, so that you can achieve one thing at a time…Always work towards a small goal, and then once that is finished keep going to the next small goal. Continue til the large goal is achieved…

    • The 3D Labs Team says:

      We absoloutely agree Bernie! Focus on the “tasks” and the goals will eventually be reached! Keep going!

    Hi, thanks for sharing this information about the one thing necessary to achieve a goal. It inspire me a lot and also I agree with that statement you made that all goals in the world are irrelevant if the tasks necessary to reach them don’t get done . U think it is because of procrastination. Most of us do procrastinate about something a lot. We might have written our goals but have never take action on it due to procrastination, we tell ourselves I will do it later, or I will do it tomorrow and we keep on procrastinating until we finally give up without starting. I was once a victim of procrastination but I later stop after a lot of advice . Thanks once again for sharing this article.

    • The 3D Labs Team says:

      You are absolutely right! Procrastinating kills all opportunities. One small step, one small task…completed, can kill procrastination at any time.

    Thank you so much for writing this article! I really need a motivation booster right now. I am picturing too many ways and create abundant plans, to achieve various goals. I find this ineffective, because I am confused which one should I prioritize. I will take your suggestion and write just ONE goal with ONE way to achieve it. Thanks

    • The 3D Labs Team says:

      You are certainly not alone. Far too many get too caught up in how MUCH needs to be done. Simply pick ONE THING you can do RIGHT NOW…and go to work! 🙂
