We all like POSITIVE ACTIONS, right? Basically, focusing on the actions that will move you toward whatever it is that you want.
Well, today I am going to get a little <gasp!> NEGATIVE. But you know what, it’s highly important.
It’s time to take inventory of the things that are getting in your way – the hurdles between you and your vision of success.
These hurdles drain your energy … resources … confidence … and make the journey from where you are NOW to where you want to BE, longer and more challenging.
Here’s what I’m talking about.
Let’s say you have a goal of getting off your blood pressure or cholesterol medication or finally getting into the best shape in your life.
What are you doing NOW that gets in the way of making that happen? If you’re serious about reaching success, it is time to start dealing with those obstacles.
At Educogym, we definitely do NOT recommend cutting out every obstacle at once (or maybe ever). But it’s important to acknowledge them – because it takes their power away.
If you start by targeting those obstacles one by one, you’ll have a better chance of long-term success. Before you know it … those OBSTACLES will become OPPORTUNITIES.
- If you have a goal that includes eating healthier, but you also have a mid-afternoon snacking habit. What if you swapped out your sugary snack for some low glycaemic fruit and nuts?
- If you have a goal that includes getting more fit but aren’t sure what to do or don’t have enough time. What if you got guidance from a coach who can help you discover your inner athlete (even in just short bursts of time – remember our training sessions are just 20 minutes)?
Here is an infographic that covers 3 steps to handle the hurdles standing in your way to achieve goals.
Rather than trying to go cold turkey on all of your obstacles at once, find a REPLACEMENT or something you can do instead. Hope you find these steps useful. Share your thoughts if you wish to add any points.
