When it comes to goals, setting them is the easy part. It’s like having a vision for your future, easy to imagine it in our mind, but getting there takes strategy, commitment and action.
Often our habits, behaviours we have been doing for so long they feel automatic, unconscious, are what we need to really work on to reach our goals. How we choose to spend our time, what we give our attention to, our habits, can either move us forward or hold us back.
When you get a moment today take some time to consider these questions:
What is a goal you have set for yourself?
Why does it as matter to you?
Why have you not achieved this goal to date, what action or inaction on your part has been holding you back from achieving it?
What needs to change, in your daily habits, for you to actually reach this goal?
What do you do to numb out? To buffer your emotions? (e.g. over eating, over drinking, over procrastinating, over exercising, over Facebooking, gambling, worrying, gossiping, basically anything you overdo to avoid feeling negative emotion like stress, overwhelm, boredom).
How does this ‘overdoing’ hold you back from reaching your goals? From moving forward?
What is one change you can make starting today that will move you closer to your goal this week?
We are all working on ourselves, from the inside out, to be stronger, to be better than what we were yesterday. At the end of the day that’s what we are here to do, to grow, to evolve.
I hope these questions have you thinking about how you can go one step further this week with your goals.
Would you like me to help you create a personalised daily protocol for you to start moving toward your goals?
I offer this free consultation because I am a coach who specialises in coaching people to better manage their emotions, stop buffering and start living the life they desire. If you find value in this free session you may want to become a client.
Before you register for the free session know that I cannot help everyone. I can only be of benefit to you if you are ready for making changes in your life. If you are sick of a life on repeat, if you want to grow into your potential, if you are ready to start truly living this life you have, then here’s what to do next.
