It’s really simple. What holds us back from moving forward, taking that chance, or making a life change? Fear right?
Fear holds us back from more than we realize. For some of us fear can play a part in the simplest tasks. For starters, putting our two feet on the floor when we wake up in the morning. There is always something out there we dread that has to be dealt with in our day right?
Try this(myself included), start off with just today by saying no or not doing something with you are uncomfortable with, without feeling bad or guilty.
Little steps are a great way to get going on defeating what’s holding you back.
Consciously make an effort and take note on everything and every little feeling, like the pit in your stomach feeling, when you have to make a choice on what YOU want to do. Just say no. It’s really not that hard. Remember baby steps.
Good luck today. I’d like to hear what you decided not to do today and how it felt to say no. Even if you say no to one thing, that is a great start.
Day after day you think to yourself, I can’t get out of this rut and I’m not going anywhere in life. My job is a dead end and I’m always broke. The relationships I have with others make me depressed and angry. I feel like I am empty and running on fumes.
This doesn’t have to be. The choice is yours to start making a change. End the cycle by taking the first step. Be realistic and don’t overwhelm yourself by setting a goal that needs time to develop.
Any goal you want to reach needs a plan. Whether it’s big or small you have to start somewhere.
I know when my brain starts brewing up an idea or a goal to accomplish, if i don’t start the process with a small step, it’ll never happen.
First of all whatever goal you want to accomplish use the resources around you to see how others accomplished their goals. When I wanted to organize my bathroom, I Googled “How to organize your bathroom.” It’s really that simple. Now on a larger scale I wanted to become a teachers assistant in NY, what did I do? I Googled, “How to become a teachers assistant in NY.”
You have to start somewhere and if you’re anything like me, you’re going to need some help with starting off in the right direction. If you don’t know, then just ask.
I can give you so my instances in my life that I needed direction on how to accomplish a goal but the list is never ending. What I want to express to you is that anything is possible but start small so you don’t sabotage yourself or idea by stressing out over it.
1. Start small. Get a piece of paper and pen, and write down what it is you want to accomplish. Having it written down your more apt to staying on track rather than keeping the thought in your head that will probably be forgotten or pushed aside.
2. Research on “how to.” If there are others writing about it because they’ve done it, then that’s the type of references you want to follow. Everyone is different but if you take bits and pieces of how people accomplished their goals, then your bound to come up with a plan that’ll work for you.
3. Set your wheels in motion. Follow the steps and review your goals each day. Repetition works great for me and it could help you.
Every goal needs a plan. Write the goal down that you want to accomplish. Make a plan and start the process small.
Good luck and if you need a pep talk, I’m your cheerleader!!
