So, We’re two weeks into the New Year. How we feeling ? Have you changed your goals yet ? Have you attempted to make a plan to accomplish your goals for the year or the month?
Sometimes, it’s easier to talk the talk, rather than walk the walk. What is it that gets in our way of getting up and MOVING ?
I know for me, I’m just lazy. Sometimes, I get into this funk that makes me avoid anything productive. In fact, it does the total opposite. It takes me 5 steps back, when I get lazy. At some point in the laziness, I forget what I’m working toward. Like this blog for instance! I set a goal for myself to post once a week until I really get accustomed to the life style and then increase my posts accordingly. I posted 1 post so far and we’re going into week 3 already. Granted, sometimes I get a writers block and don’t know how to put my feelings into words. Baby steps. In order for me to post once a week, I need to put my feelings into some sort of writing daily and then put it all together at the end of the week. Having a daily theme would help but sometimes I’m so scatter brained, I don’t know which way is up.
** Rant Over.**
Now, enough about me. Let’s talk about you. What is getting in your way? I want you to take some time. Write down exactly what you want to accomplish by the end of February ( since January is almost over ) Like I said in my last post, putting in it writing will help you keep it in the front of your mind. So, put it in writing and then write down what you are going to do to get there. Bullet point is my favorite way to do this. Then write down your obstacles. Basically, What’s getting in your way. Put some real effort into this because this will be the determining factor weather you move past it or not. Some common obstacles are :
- Fear of the unknown
- Fear of change
- No support
- Too much influence in the opposite direction
- Time management
And so on…
Once you’ve determined WHAT is in your way, we need to figure out how to eliminate that factor or make it more subtle. You can get help figuring out how to eliminate these obstacles but only you can really tell how to do it because you are the only one that’s going to work toward it.
You may need to make your network smaller for a bit, you may need to make it bigger. You might need to cut back on extra spending or start making lists to prioritize. There are a TON of websites and applications to help you accomplish your goals and be more productive, so you can’t use the excuse of having no resources.
No matter what you do or how you do it. Make it your own and get started today. Don’t wait until Monday or next month. If you’re not ready now, you’ll never be ready.
❤️❤️❤️ Happy Sunday !! Samantha
