True failure comes when we give up and stop trying….
However, if you struggle, fall and feel defeated…don’t give up! Dig deeper, see your true value, love yourself enough to pick yourself up, brush yourself off, forgive yourself for whatever you did to temporarily slip up and keep on moving forward.
Think of a child learning to walk and all the times, they stood and fell, took one step and fell, took two steps and fell….then barely stood and fell. Over and over and over again…but eventually…they mastered it! They succeeded! You will too! 🙂
Think of all the struggles throughout school…learning to write, do math, learn an instrument, sport, etc. etc. It didn’t happen overnight…there were many struggles….but you didn’t give up!
You are a winner!
You are reading this, probably because you’ve, at some point on your journey, felt like a failure. I can totally relate to that!
But don’t focus on what you haven’t yet accomplished or what you’ve done in the past. Focus instead on what you are doing TODAY to move you forward in the direction you want to go. AND even if you don’t believe you’ll ever get there, do it anyways….for now…go through the motions and before you know it, the belief will come and you’ll be unstoppable!
I want you to list your long term goal(s) and then break it (them) down. Create reasonable, manageable steps that you can do each month, each week and daily.
Create doable goals…not far out there ones … “setting yourself up for failure” goals! Baby steps…start small and when your momentum starts to build, then you can modify your goals and go a little more crazy! 😉
Is your goal to lose weight? Be specific. How much weight and by what date? Then break it down. Lets say your goal is to lose 20 lbs. by June (4 months). Each month you’d have to lose 5 pounds to reach that goal. What’s your plan? What workout will you commit to doing? (contact me…if you need help choosing) You’ll have to track your calorie intake…how? Myfitnesspal.com? (which I recommend). How much water will you drink each day to help with your weightloss? (recommend adding two glasses to whatever you are currently drinking…if this is a struggle for you to start…working your way up to 8!)
Is your goal to get more organized. Tackle one room at a time, one drawer at a time, one flat surface at a time…again, baby steps! 🙂
