New Month …. New Goals!
We all have goals that we want to attain.. but how do we put the goals that we write down on paper into action?
Why do we continue to tell ourselves what we can’t do instead of focusing on what we can and are doing?
I have been really reading a lot about mindset lately. It has always fascinated me on why and how some people can push themselves to limits unimaginable and others sit back and say “I could never do that”.
It is just as easy to train our brain so why do we lose focus on what is important and live in the comfort of our uncomfortableness?
When you continue to push yourself. attack your goals, and continue to reinvent yourself you feel so empowered and unstoppable. Your routine can consist of always hitting new goals, never feeling satisfied, and always wanting the most out of life that you can get.
When I am speaking with clients and they say ” I just don’t think that I can do that”… I always ask them two follow-up questions. First, “Why”? and second “What is the worst that will happen if you try”?
You see, even if we attempt our goals it’s a success regardless of if we hit the actual goal. For example: My Chris’s dream is to be able to walk on his hands. He is fascinated by the sheer difficulty of this task and wants to make this a reality in his daily life. The first thing he did was began to work on his hand stands. He would watch videos and read about handstand walking progressions. Almost everyday for 5 to 15 minutes he would work on those progressions. Once he perfected the beginning progressions he would move on and so on and so forth. He is now at a point where he can walk on his hands. It is still not where he wants it to be, but he is doing it!
The reason that he is successful is not only did he have his goal, he had a plan of attack. When he completes this goal he will already have another goal and the tools and resources to move towards that goal.
Now your focus is on obtaining the goal, and no longer on how to do it and why you can’t.
CPM’ers I want you to create a list of 5 goals that you would like to achieve for the month of June. They don’t all have to be fitness related, but they should be lofty and make you feel a little nervous and uncomfortable and yet strategic so you have a plan of how to conquer them!
Post your goals in the comments below….
