How to Achieve your Goals

Have you ever had goals you couldn’t achieve? Goals that were impossible to achieve that you could only dream about? Well I’m here to tell you that those goals can be possible as long as you follow them the right way. It’s not easy to get there without knowing the basics first. I’m here to give you some advice on that and hopefully you’ll get a hint of what to do after you’ve read my post.
1. Don’t aim too big yet.
I’m not here to crush your dreams, I’m here to guide you to your ultimate dream. You might have one goal in sight but you have to remember that to be able to get where you want to go, you need to do smaller goals before you’ll be able to reach the ultimate one. So rule number one is to not aim big…yet. Just divide your goal into sections so that you can achieve them, step by step in your own time/tempo.
2. Surround Yourself with Positivity and with Encouraging Friends.
This is really a important one. Achieving a goal isn’t easy at all, if it was easy then everyone would be successful in life. There is going to be ups and downs and you’ll end up having negative thoughts about it. Being negative won’t get you anywhere, matter of fact, it will slow you down on your journey. Negativity will lead you to take a break from it all and it will suck out all of your motivation. It will help a lot if you have good friends to vent this out to, to people who understands you and your situation. They will help you out emotionally and be by your side during the hard times and of course the good times. Keep your chin up and keep fighting.
 3 –  Plan Ahead
Planning is your best friend. Make sure to have a list of things to do, schedule and prioritize things in life. If you’re aiming something like “losing weight” then start researching what diet is suitable for you and how many days a week you just start working out, time etc. You have to plan ahead, if not then everything will lead to chaos and frustrations. If you have a hard time writing your schedule/planning down digitally then get a planner that you can have in your bag. Writing things down can be more motivating than using your phone. I prefer using a planner, it works better for me.

4 – Never Compare Yourself with Someone else

 This rule is a critical one. Comparing yourself with someone who is successful or your “goal” will lead you to misery. You will keep thinking about fast tracks/shortcuts to your goal and there is no such a thing as shortcuts. It’s your path, your journey and it will take a X amount of time to achieve it. Along your journey you will experience lots of failures and mistakes, that’s how it works. Nothing will be served on a silver platter for you. Although, mistakes will lead you on and learn. You’ll grow from your mistakes, failures and become better and better.
Note that there is a difference between looking up to and compare to though. You can have someone to look up to! The result will give you hope and positivity which will make you strive for your goal more.
5 – Motivation Boosts

Motivation is so important for your journey. If you don’t have any motivation then how are you going to walk forward? It’s important to be inspired! Find things that boosts you up! Save your favorite quotes as your background picture on your phone, computer etc. Have a poster somewhere in your home/office. Small things like that can boost you up and give you more energy! Put up some “post-it” post around your working space. It helps, trust me.

6 – Find a Mentor

If things gets out of hand of your journey and you don’t know what to do, find a mentor. It might be hard to find someone to guide you towards your goal, a good one especially. The mentor should be experienced in the subject you’re interested in (music, sports, design etc…).

7 – Don’t be “perfect”, be Original 

Yes that sounds a bit crazy doesn’t? But I am being 100% honest. Don’t be perfect. No one is perfect in this world, there is no such a thing as perfection and if you try to be perfect then you’re trying to be someone you’re not. Everyone has flaws in this world and it’s nothing to be ashamed of. Being someone you’re not will wear you out. Just keep fighting to your goals step by step and you’ll get there as the person you are today. You will shape yourself  and become a better person along the way of your journey, no need to do so since day one. Be original, be yourself. There is only one of you in this whole wide world! Just be you.



I hope these pointers will get you were somewhere with your goal. Remember, it all depends on you and no one else. This is your life and your journey and it’s up to you to make things happen.

Is the Super Nintendo Classic Mini worth it?

So I am having a bit of a dilemma…

Nintendo released a miniature version of the Super Nintendo on the 29th of September 2017. The Super Nintendo is my favorite console of all time and of course I became interested in this tiny cute console. In America this console was on sale for $70 dollars (£70 in England) which wasn’t a bad price in my opinion. When I checked the price in other countries I found out that this tiny console was charged 3 times more. $200 dollars, $200 freaking dollars, yes that’s insane. You can actually buy the original Super Nintendo on eBay and other retro sites for less. I do actually own the original Super Nintendo as well. So in the back of my head I was thinking “Is it worth getting it for $200 dollars?” The answer was of course no but then a voice came in my head saying “but it’s limited edition”…I hesitated once again.

I did miss the opportunity of getting the NES Classic Mini and I do regret that. I hate having regrets, especially when it comes to video games.

Sigh, so did I end up getting it? Yes I did. Would I recommend getting this fellow console? Yes and no. If you’re young and living in a generation with the newer consoles then yes, I don’t see why not if you want to give it a go. Although, if you’re a 90’s kids like me (or older) then I would suggest you to get the actual original SNES. Why? Because the cartridges gives that retro feeling to it. So worth it.

Why did I get it? Because I am an idiot…and I love Limited Edition products. Although I must say, I would not have gotten it if I didn’t already own the console because then I’d rather just get buy the real deal.

Unboxing post will happen when I receive it.
