Ready for Another Week?
I hope you had a great weekend and you have started the week off strong! The one hurdle with most goals that we set in life is the ability to see it through. “Stay the course” is a very popular expression used to help maintain consistancy. I have another method for you to try. I call it self evaluation.
This is really simple and if you have confidence in yourself it will work everytime. Let’s say that you want to compete at next years New York City Marathon. As you begin to develop your training plan and start to implement it, you will have days where you really don’t want to run. When this happens, use the self evaluation method. Ask yourself a couple of questions:
#1- Is this going to be another unfinished goal on your list of incompletes?
#2 – Do you really believe in yourself that you can do whatever you decide to do? Yes…then get off your ass and go do what you are supposed to! If the answer is no, set no more goals in life and just prepare to die.
I would apologize for the last part, but that is sometimes what it takes to reverse self sabotage before it sets in. If you apply this method to all aspects of your life, you will achieve far more than you know. This mental transition allows you to see failure and lack of action for what it really is: an opportunity missed.
Learn from failure but never stop trying. Life is full of trial and error. Playing it safe is okay every once in a while, but to know what you are truely made of, you have to take chances…explore opportunities that you might otherwise avoid…you might surprise yourself.
So as you settle in this week I challenge each of you to do something new and push your comfort zone. Matter of fact, get out of your comfort zone! Be more than you are and continue to grow, develop and enhance the lives of those around you.
Thanks for reading and have a great day!
