It’s hard to believe the holidays are already here. Every year I seem to say the same thing and I’m probably not alone ~
“Another year quickly ending. Where did the time go?”
Aside from the hustle and bustle of holiday cheer, this time of year also represents the closing down of your year, only to face a new one in front of you. I don’t know about you, but suddenly I remember that other To Do list – the one called New Year Resolutions! Call it what you will, they are goals you’ve set for yourself and I bet at least 1 of them seems to make it on every New Year list. Hmm?
There’s another common phrase that I hear a lot regarding tackling some of those goals:
“What would ____ think if I did that?”
“What would ____ think if I said that?”
“What would ____ think if I felt that way?”
Most of what kills intention and motivation needed to actually get on the other side of your goal is being afraid of what everyone else thinks. Guess what? That’s their business, not yours. The biggest problem isn’t what another may think about you it’s actually your own critical thinking that is the biggest barrier in getting you from here to there.
Every time you hit the snooze button on an intention you’ve made only empowers your excuses.
All those thoughts that you are buying into as to “why” you should stay in the comfort zone that those negative thoughts have created, no matter how miserable it feels to be there, only empowers those thoughts.
You begin to forget what POSSIBLE feels like.
Today, when that alarm rings in your heart (not the mind) and you feel yourself reaching for a reason not to do it, get out of your head and take the smallest action step you can think of.
Every time you take action, you empower yourself. You create one building block at a time, toward confidence.
Every time you listen to an excuse, you hit the snooze button on your dreams.
What’s it going to be?
If you want to stop reaching for that snooze button but just don’t know how to create an action habit that will get your from here to there, contact me. Let’s work through the thought that seems to creep up even though you have the best intentions for yourself. It’s 30-minutes of coaching as my gift. Reacquaint yourself with the feeling of possibility!
