A few years ago I wrote a goal for myself that I wanted to run the New York Marathon. But no matter how much I spoke about it or wrote it down, it didn't happen. It's not because I can't accomplish a goal (I'm a quick worker when it comes to moving forward in my goals generally). It's that I didn't want to actually TRAIN to run a marathon. My words and goals meant nothing because I didn't want to actually do the work to make it to that NYC start line.
What goals have you said out loud, or written down, that you don't actually want to work towards? Here's how you can get clear on what you REALLY want, by using these two blunt but honest statements below (from an Article by Derek Silvers who shares that it's actions, not words that define our real values)
1. Stop lying to yourself and admit your real priorities
2. Start doing what you say you want, and see if it's really true.
Let me know if your goals shift when you apply this honest look at them this week....I'd love to know.
