HOW TO STAY MOTIVATED WHEN YOU FEEL LIKE QUITTING

HOW TO STAY MOTIVATED WHEN YOU FEEL LIKE QUITTING

So many of my coaching clients struggle with feeling good about the healthy direction their headed in because they haven't yet arrived at their final destination. It's hard for them to celebrate their wins along the way because they stay so focused on the fact that they are not yet exactly where they want to be.It's hard for them the focus on the progress they are making verses wanting everything to be just perfect right now, please and thank you. 

It took them quite some time to get stuck in the rut they are in, but they instantly want to be pulled out of it.... because we all want everything instantly, right? That's what we expect from every single thing in life...

But lasting change typically isn't instant.

Today I’m super excited to share MY 18 goals I want to complete before 2018, and I’m challenging YOU to play along. You have until the end of 2017 to complete all 18 goals on your list.

When I sat down to make this list, I first pulled out my copy of Your Best Year 2017 and laid it down side-by-side next to my bullet journal (where I house all of my goals, agenda, to-do lists, journals and rambles.

HOW TO CHANGE YOUR LIFE BY DEFINING YOUR CORE VALUES

HOW TO CHANGE YOUR LIFE BY DEFINING YOUR CORE VALUES

Values are our foundational beliefs that anchor our lives, the things that matter to us the most; the nonnegotiable characteristics that best describe who we are.

Identifying your specific core values offers a deep awakening to understanding why you do what you do. Because of that, your core values should line up with what you believe is important with how you live your life. Sometimes these values are inherited or learned… other times they are ideals. Often times, external conflict and internal turmoil are the result of opposing core values, either with others or even within you.

REFLECTIVE WRITING FOR POSITIVE CHANGE

REFLECTIVE WRITING FOR POSITIVE CHANGE

I can remember journaling as far back as when I was in the fourth grade. I would often have trouble sleeping at night and didn’t want to wake anyone up, so I started writing and drawing to pass the time until morning or until I fell asleep. I fell in love with music right about the same time, so a lot of what I would write would be lyrics to my favorite songs and just my thoughts about my friends and the bands that we listened to.

WHAT IS YOUR WHY?

WHAT IS YOUR WHY?

Friend, I have a pretty deep question for you today…

What is your motive for wanting to live wisely, choose intentionally, and to live on purpose?

As you reflect on your dreams, goals, and commitments, you will begin to identify ambitions, fears, insecurities, and hopes that powerfully drive your actions. The more aware you are of what drives you, the better you become at dealing with obstacles to your success and making better choices for yourself.

MAKE CHOICES THAT WON’T LEAD TO REGRET

MAKE CHOICES THAT WON’T LEAD TO REGRET

One of the ways to make a final decision to move forward or to make a choice about something is to ask the question, “Which choice will lead to the least amount of regret?”

To give you an example, on days when I have planned to exercise but I have crazy work demands in front of me, I get tempted to forge through the work and skip my workout. I stop and spend a minute or so on some reflection and I recognize that the benefits of my workout on my mind, energy, and stress level will help me get more done. Choosing 30-40 minutes of exercise gifts me with more clarity, stamina and peace of mind, even if it does take time away from my work goals. RARELY has my commitment to workout verses getting more work done resulted in regret.
