Just checking in on how you’re doing for your goals for 2021. We’re almost a quarter of the way through the year … can you believe it? Crazy.
If you’re struggling, it’s definitely NOT too late to course-correct (even if you abandoned your goals weeks ago, like most people have). What better time than now with lockdown slowly starting to ease to normality?
There’s a huge open secret we all know to be true about achieving goals, making lifestyle changes, and setting new healthy habits.
And yet when we map out our goals at the start of the year, we forget it exists.
Here it is: there WILL be obstacles.
It’s not a matter of “if” something will get in your way – it’s a question of WHEN. It happens to EVERYONE.
And when it happens, it can make you question your discipline, or even if it’s possible for you to achieve the goal at all.
You might even feel like quitting.
Most people do.
BUT instead … what if you gave yourself a HUGE pat on the back for pushing yourself out of your comfort zone or trying something new and challenging?!
- Pinpointed exactly WHAT didn’t work,
- Why it didn’t work, and …
- What could make it EASIER, and then
- Adjusted your plan to get back on track?
It’s like putting together a jigsaw puzzle.
Sometimes you can’t see where a piece fits, but if you rotate it and look at it from a different angle, boom! You can see how all the pieces work together to form the complete picture.
Your goals – and the actions you take to reach them – work the exact same way.
It can take some creativity and a fresh perspective to find solutions to the problems that crop up.
Live today with intention!
