Focus on the journey, focus on the daily decisions that are within your control. Sounds simple, right? Turns out, not so simple…
Always looking to the end goal can so many times lead to disappointment. If your not enjoying the process what will happen to you when you reach your end goal anyway? Then what? Instead, focussing on the daily goals will keep you accountable every day – it will also give you the opportunity to succeed and meet your goals EVERY DAY!! Set daily intentions – realistic and attainable ones that will allow you to stack up some wins and say ‘I got this!’ When times get tough and your challenged by situations – that voice in your head will threaten to take you down – but you are prepared this time, you can reassure yourself that you have done it before and you can do it again. This is success. This is the path to sustainable change – step by every little step!
The “goal” in life is to win, right? Well, you can set yourself up to win everyday by setting your intentions wisely and letting go of outcomes. Who are we kidding, we cannot control outcomes, only how we react to them. By focussing on the small little victories you are giving yourself some credit and growing in the confidence that although you can’t control everything, you can control your attitude and how you react so that it doesn’t derail you. Plan for the unexpected and have the intention of making the best decisions possible in each and every moment. Trust yourself and Know Thyself!!! So if you head into the day with the intention of doing your best and having a good attitude you can’t fail. Every time you handle an uncomfortable situation or negative experience is another opportunity for growth and developing that trust for yourself.
I realise there is a lot to take in there, but the number one take-away message would be to trust yourself.
