Goal Achievement – Physical and Mental Stamina

Sometimes it might seem that physical stamina is the only way to achieve your goals. You can push things through to the end with sheer determination. Being able to endure the challenges you face might compel you to feel invigorated and more disciplined. However, physical stamina alone limits your ability to creatively bring your goals to fruition.

You need to find the balance between your physical stamina and mental acuity/staying power. It can be easy to focus on your physical stamina when you are determined to get things done. Yet, you need to use the power of your mind to keep yourself motivated and on track. If you feel your energy lagging, for example, you might notice your body’s signs and reflect upon the things you do physically to recharge, such as exercising, taking a walk, or doing a leisure activity that is enjoyable and expends more mental acuity than physical stamina.

As you become aware of your body’s reactions, notice your thought patterns. Are your thoughts self-defeating or are you giving yourself encouragement to do better? Aligning your body’s needs with a positive mental response will enhance your ability to stay focused, invigorated and more disciplined.

Creating balance between your physical and mental acuity/power enables you to maintain your endurance. Relying solely on your body to keep you going means you use only part of your resources. If you continue to do this in the long term you can wear yourself down and lose your ability to focus and endure.

Using your mind to help keep yourself going, however, gives you an additional source of power that contributes to your overall strength, concentration and endurance. Your mind has the power to drive your body. By increasing your stamina through both your mind and your body, you will reach your goals with greater focus, creativity and overall stamina.
