Reach Your Goals By Setting Yourself Up For Success
We are just past the middle of February – the point where 80% of people will have abandoned their New Year’s Eve resolutions.
Just 6 weeks prior we were happily creating that long list of resolutions to achieve the “new year, new me”. This approach might be a nice aspiration, but it also sets you up for failure.
So, what happens in that short period of just a few weeks?
I went off social media for 6 weeks and this is what happened.
For the holidays I decided to delete FB and IG from my phone and stop posting all together. I went for a total social media detox.
I figured come the new year I would hop back on and continue as usual. 1st week of January came, but I was still happy in my holiday bubble - so I stayed there. 2nd week came and I checked back in with myself if I was ready. But the answer was still a no. The 3rd week came, and you guessed it, still a no.
The magic of creative living
I still remember that moment vividly when I realized that I had the destiny of my life in my own hands. That I fully held the power to decide on how my life unfolds - it felt so liberating and so exciting!
Until then I had been a passive observer to my life, somebody that life happened to, somebody that was born into a set of circumstances that could not be changed. So, imagine how I felt when it became clear to me that this was not true – it was a magic explosion in my mind, and all I had ever imagined became possible in that one moment.
How the little word courage can make a big difference
As I sit down to write my first newsletter, the word courage comes to mind. For weeks I have been avoiding this newsletter writing business, not knowing how and where to start.
Have you experienced this feeling when you are standing at the tip of the pools spring board about to take a dive head first? That funny feeling in your tummy as you know you have to give yourself that push?
