If I told you it was easy, I would be lying. If I told you that I never wanted to give up, I would be lying.
I have talked about setting goals before, but I want to emphasize how IMPORTANT setting goals were along my journey, and how they still play a big part in the reason I am still motivated every single day.
I set ONE long term goal every 3-4 months.
I also set small WEEKLY goals to help me along the way to reach my long term goals.
I noticed that when I focused too much on my long term goal that I easily became discouraged and unmotivated. I wanted to achieve my long term goal in ONE DAY or ONE WEEK. When realistically that wasn’t possible, and wasn’t healthy. The minute I started focusing on my daily and weekly goals, that long term goal didn’t seem impossible anymore.
Don’t forget to pat yourself on the back for making it to the gym instead of going home after a long day of work to sit on the couch because you are tired, to choosing the salad over the burger and fries.
For once, prove yorurself wrong and DON’T GIVE UP!!! What are some of your short term goals that will help you achieve your long term goal???
