Do you have a big health/fitness goal? Have you been thinking about it for a while now? Have you embarked upon it? Have you started only to have gotten overwhelmed or discouraged by it?
Sometimes, you get the big push of energy (take New Years’ resolutions, for instance) only to peter out of energy after a few months. Or weeks. Or days.
It’s a really good thing to act upon those things that you really want to see within your life. But for must take a long term, (or a proper amount of time) to accomplish it, and realize, that you may not get it all right every day, but that each day is a step in that direction.
Sometimes the steps are even backwards. That can be frustrating and disappointing. It doesn’t feel good. Unless you believe without doubt that you are going to get to the goal, and you don’t pull your energy or attention away from it. If you never let the vision go, plan and follow through on actions that take you there, you WILL get it. If you go “backwards,” or come across circumstances that make it difficult to accomplish your goals, you just must consistently make changes to align yourself with that which what you want to see in your life.
On to steps and processes – a big goal (well, any goal, really), are more easily palatable and more guaranteed to happen when you break it down into smaller pieces. You’ve likely heard the adage, “How do you eat an elephant?” (“One bite at a time.”)
You cannot do it all at once. Little steps every day, every week, every month, and every year make for a whole new life 5 years from now.
Lifestyle change is like this. Don’t overestimate what you can do in a day and underestimate what you can do in 5 years.
In our instant, “microwave mindset” culture today, this isn’t really a popularly marketed thought. But it’s a successful one.
