I was in Santa Monica Beach in CA and found this mural on the wall of a market and I found it appropriate to remind everyone at this point of the month to refresh your goals you were so enthusiastic about just 3 weeks ago when the apple fell in Times Square. Remember who you are.
So what are your goals? What are your running goals? Are you committed to a certain amount of workouts a week? Have you started to exercise and make this the year you get back in shape? Are you trying to stop smoking? Better nutrition for the year? A marathon? Half Marathon? A mile? These are just some of the goals some people have shared with me this week.
Most of the friends who shared their goals with me have fallen off a little bit and some have fallen off a lot. And that’s OK, it is still early and I invite you to take my
10 DAY CHALLENGE
It’s quite simple. Start today, tomorrow but sooner than later and everyday make great choices all day in regards to your goal. I always say everyday when the sun rises it is a beautiful thing because the past is behind you and when you see that sun it should remind you today is a new start. You have choices everyday to be great and do your best to create the life you want and reach the goals you need to reach. So for 10 days practice this, take one day at a time and do your best everyday to make the best decisions for the goal. I am not asking you to be perfect but to do your best. Dedicate yourself for 10 days and you will find yourself back on track. If this still feels hard to you, take the ten-day challenge and dedicate each day to someone in your life and think about them all day and let them inspire you to be great and make your day of great choices in their honor and do everything you can to NOT let them down. These little mind tricks can help you. Essentially in the big picture it is YOU who you are not letting down. Give it a shot and watch your mind, goals and life get refreshed.
Do you want more than you have now, PROVE IT. You want to be the very best at what you do? GET GOING AND EARN IT. Try and go about your days with positive ideas and thoughts. This is good energy and will manifest great things in your life.
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate, our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us. Playing small does not serve the world, there is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people around you don’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine as children do. It’s not just in some of us, its in every one of us. As we let our own light shine we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. And as we are liberated from our own fears, so are they. Our deepest fear is we are powerful beyond measure.”
Believe in yourself and Remember who you are.
Hold your breath, make a wish and count to three.
