Would you like to wake up confident and motivated to keep taking steps toward your success? In my free November coaching call, we’ll be doing just that—learning how to be excited that we’re on a path toward success the instant we wake up every morning.
Take the first actions toward making your success contagious (both to others and yourself!) with these brief tips, below. Then, check back later in the month for my free coaching call to help you make even more progress.
Have you ever gone on a diet and tried to totally change the way you eat overnight, only to quickly give up? We often make our goals too big and our timelines too short. Such huge hurdles can be discouraging, making it hard to achieve success.
Instead, I’m going to discuss a new way of approaching goal-setting. This tactic asks us to start really small and make changes that are in total agreement with who we are. Usually, these steps are much easier to take because they’re aligned with what we actually want to do!
For example, instead of diving headfirst into an entirely new diet, I recently decided to buy some small containers to put hummus in. I then started packing bags of baby carrots to take with me to snack on with the hummus throughout the day. Just this little step toward my health goal felt really good—and helped me get started working toward a new, healthier lifestyle.
Add Some Fun to Your List
If you have a long list of “shoulds”, then making progress is going to be a chore that you sometimes avoid. But, by coming up with fun to do list items instead, you’ll be much more likely to actually make progress.
And that progress will overflow into all of the areas of your life wheel since all aspects are interconnected.
Maybe you’re interested in saving a bit more money. It’s way more fun to go online and look up five simple, inexpensive weekday meals than to cut out your monthly movie night. Then you can take the difference and move that money to your savings right away while enjoying some tasty new recipes—all without cutting a rare and much-needed indulgence.
Even small actions will overlap to affect other areas of your life. It’s like goal compounding interest—when you make progress in one area of your life, it literally lifts your vibration and overflows into other areas.
When you start going to the gym, you feel more jazzed and energized to plan dates with your spouse. When you get a part-time job, you get more organized with your dinner routine. When you organize your office, you get a raise. Everything is connected.
