We all make New Year’s Resolutions or goals for our year, but how many of us actually follow through to the end with them? Are you still working toward yours, or has it mostly become a good intention?
Here’s how I knew you’d quit …
I knew you’d quit because you were waiting for things to be perfect before you started.
Unfortunately, things will never be perfect, timing will never be right, and you’ll never be ready. You don’t need things to be perfect. You don’t need your ducks in a row. You just need a dream and a willingness to start as you are. You are enough!
If I waited for things to be perfect before I wrote my book or started this channel, I’d still be waiting! Things were far from perfect when I began this journey. I had a broken ankle and couldn’t walk or drive and was in pain all the time! I didn’t have a dedicated spot for my writing and filming … I still don’t!
I use what I have, and my kitchen table is my office, my couch is my writing space, and a corner of my living room is my dedicated studio. Is it ideal? Maybe not, but I will use what I have and choose to do it imperfectly because I know my message is important. My dream matters, and so does yours! Don’t wait for things to be perfect. Start now.
I knew you’d quit because you don’t have a deep enough reason WHY you want what you want.
The WHY behind your dream is what will fuel you to take the necessary action for you to make things happen. Your WHY is your driver, so you’ve got to dig deeper to find your true WHY. What is it your goal or new year’s resolution will do for your life? If you hit it, what would you gain? Whom would it impact? Why does your goal matter? Take some time to determine this.
I knew you’d quit because you don’t have a clear direction of where you’re headed.
Without a plan, you don’t know what direction you’re headed. You don’t need things to be perfect, but you do need some type of plan to get yourself started. Your plans may change, and you may have to try, fail, adust, and try again — over and over — but with a plan, you’ll also have a reference for reflection. You can determine what’s working, what’s not working, what you needs to be added or let go. Clarity matters!
You set this big, burly goal for yourself without anything in between. You have this huge dream, and that’s okay, but if you’re only looking at the huge dream and not the everyday things that will take you there, then you’re not going to make it.
I knew you’d quit because You were waiting for things to be perfect before you started, you don’t have a deep enough reason WHY you want what you want, and you don’t have a clear direction of where you’re headed.
