So how are you doing with those resolutions and getting your now new schedule into place? If you are like most of us, probably your answer is in some areas I am doing good, in one or two areas its getting there and in a couple not so much. Change is hard, change takes time and the truth is unless we are in a great deal of pain in an area, we tend not to make any change until we can no longer stand the pain. Does that sound at all familiar? I thought so. So how would you feel about accepting those areas where you have changed, and making the final push to getting the couple of areas which are almost there across that finish line? Yes, I know those are doable, realistic goals! This is what achieving and winning the resolution game is about.
The same is true in all areas of our lives. When we set out to change or alter anything in any area of our lives, we need to be able to look at those goals in a realistic time frame, and give ourselves permission to succeed in work at our own pace to achieve the goal. We all know that life has a way of throwing those detours, road blocks, life challenges, and other unexpected events in our paths which delay our plans. This does not mean we quit, we re-evaluate, we set a new date, we get back into our vehicle and proceed on with our goal.
When we let the “emotion” of the detour, the road blocks, the life challenge, or other unexpected event hijack us we hand over the control to something other than our good sense. We run the risk of being hijacked by a flood of chemicals, a never ending circle of thoughts which go no where, sleepless nights which keep us off the main road, and we become lost in the quick sands of despair; where dreams and goals are quickly swallowed up and disappear.
See these for what they are; momentary small things which need attention, but do not require you to abandon your dream or your goal. Recalculate, and continue on. No matter what is going on, there is so much you can be doing in your forward progress toward your goal.
How may I support you in your goal?
