An idea not coupled with action will never get any bigger than the brain cell it occupied. ~Arnold Glasow
Take five minutes today to review your public declaration, review where you’re at on your goals and re-dedicate yourself to making this YOUR year. If you need to take corrective action, make it either one of two things:
1) Why do you need corrective action? Were your goals unreasonable for your lifestyle? Did you make a goal without much thought to how your real, day-to-day life could sustain that goal? (Pssst … it’s okay if you did. It’s totally normal and we all know that if you shoot for the stars, there’s a good chance that you’ll end up among the clouds at least). If this is the case, review the goal and CHANGE IT to make it work with your lifestyle and your bandwidth.
2) If your goal is perfectly reasonable but you’ve simply fallen off the wagon, re-dedicate yourself to your goal. Remind yourself why you made the goal to start with, talk to your family and friends about how they can support you and give yourself visual reminders of your goal (lists, positive pictures etc…)
I’m right there along with you today. I just wrote my Accountability Group and requested a change to one of my goals, mid-quarter. It turns out, the larger I get (thank you, unborn healthy baby boy …), the less motivated I am to work out (shuffling like a water buffalo down my former running trail just isn’t on my list of awesome things to do right now). So, I ‘fessed up, asked for help and am changing up my goals a bit to ensure that I stay physically active through my last 7 weeks of my pregnancy.
Join me? I’d love the company of all my Soap Queen family doing a re-focus along with me.
