1. MAKE IT TANGIBLE
You may have heard of vision boards. Maybe you’ve seen wallpapers or desktop backgrounds with motivational words or image. Whatever your style is, we can affirm that seeing is believing. Start with putting down your goal, whether it’s a doodle or text on a piece of paper or the Notes app. Then, and most importantly, make sure you put this in front of you every single day; your bathroom mirror and your phone screen are good places to start.

2. SURROUND YOURSELF WITH SUCCESS
Although the phrase “birds of a feather flock together” may be overused and cheesy, it rings true when you’re trying to reach milestones. By surrounding yourself with people working toward their goals who are happy to support you as you work toward your own, you’re already halfway there. A coworking space is one of the best places to start; entrepreneurs from all backgrounds who cowork know that when it comes to following your dreams, there is strength in supportive numbers.
3. START SMALL
Have a goal that seems to big to achieve? The best way to approach it is to break your goal into smaller, more manageable sections. For example, if you’re looking to start a scalable business, you can break down that large goal into smaller goals that include raising venture capital, leasing office space, building a team to run the company, etc. Coworking is an easy way to check all of those to-do’s off your list, fast.
4. GO EASY ON YOURSELF
At Cross Campus, we’re all about staying #worklifebalanced. We love what we do, but we value self-care. If you’re taking longer than you planned to achieve certain goals or if you’ve lost the motivation to keep going, take a break and don’t beat yourself up. Do something you love that doesn’t involve a paycheck, and come back to the grind when you’re rested and ready. We all move at our own pace.
5. DON’T BE AFRAID TO CELEBRATE
Too many of us don’t take the time to celebrate our successes before we move on. When you recognize what you’ve achieved, whether it’s by throwing a party or treating yourself to something small, you’re not just celebrating. You’re motivating yourself to take on the next goal so you can celebrate again once that goal is achieved. And we’re happy to celebrate with you; with events of every kind for Cross Campus members, from happy hours to special guests and speaker sessions, let us cheer you on.
Start achieving your goals at Cross Campus. We’ve got coworking, offices for teams of 1 to 60, meeting space, and event space to fit all of your business needs. Schedule a free tour to get your membership started today.
