If you learn NOTHING other than this today, I hope you absorb these 3 little statements:
-Nobody will ever care about your goals as much as you do.
-Do NOT give yourself permission to quit.
-People only give up on their goals because they become hard or it’s taking too long.
Simple statements, right?! But HOW true they are! I know what it’s like to get started and feel like you’re not making progress. Folks, you didn’t gain that 100 lbs overnight and you won’t lose it that quickly either! Break that goal into smaller chunks and make the mountain goal into something that keeps you motivated, but yet not overwhelmed by the whole task. I remind my clients on a daily basis that you have to lose your first pound , first. One day at a time, one pound at a time.
And when those hard days set in (and you WILL have them), remind yourself how bad you want this! This is something that other people can’t want or do for you. You have to want it and you have to do the work! Stumble, cry, fail, do whatever you have to do along the way. But never ever give yourself permission to fail! Remember how bad you want this and how far you’ve come!
I TOO get frustrated. I want things and I want them now. But having it handed to me will teach me nothing. I’ve loved myself so much through this journey because I’ve fought so hard to overcome my serious obstacles AND break all my limiting beliefs. I know that you TOO have that same spirit in you and can’t wait to cheer you on along the way ❤️
