Where will you be in 6 months time if you keep doing what you’re doing right now?
The reason I ask this questions is because I’ve been thinking a lot about how we keep ourselves stuck in the same patterns when we don’t commit to our dreams. I was talking to a client and friend last week who had been struggling with a few different health related issues; she wanted to lose weight and she also wanted to get back into exercise but a couple of things kept holding her back. She felt like she was sabotaging her weight loss goal because she couldn’t stay on track with her diet and manage her sugar cravings. This was causing her a lot of emotional upset. Also, every time she committed to getting back into exercise and would try to go for a run or do yoga a back injury kept limiting her from moving forward so she would stop and then try again the next week.
This was a pattern for months until she made the decision and commitment that she didn’t want to still be stuck in 6 months time. Despite being a student and on a budget, she reached out and hired a physio to help her rehabilitate her back and a health coach to help her stay on track with her diet and create a plan for what to do when she was craving sugar. Basically, she took action on making her dreams come to life by realising that it was up to her to take different actions if she wanted to see different results.
In our last session she said to me, “It’s amazing how much momentum I have now that I’ve chosen to invest in myself and my dreams.” The physio has helped her so much she can now go on long walks and do yoga again. I’ve helped her to create a more balanced eating plan and to deal with the emotions that often cause us to sabotage what we are working towards. Every month she can see herself actually moving closer to her goal of being healthier and happier.
So I want to ask you - where is it that you need to invest in yourself so that in 6 months time you can be living your dreams? There’s that great quote - “If you keep doing what you’re doing you’ll keep getting what you’re getting” - so if you’re not happy with how your life looks at the moment, what action can you take to invest in yourself?
I know that so many of us and in particular, we kiwis, love to do it all ourselves. We take a lot of pride in being a Do-It-Yourself kind of culture and I love that spirit, BUT, if you have been trying for a while to get a result and nothing is changing then you owe it to yourself to take a different action. The most successful people in the world don’t do it on their own; they have personal trainers, mindset mentors, financial advisors, secretaries…basically people who will help them get to where they want to go faster.
We are already half way through the year and so I want to ask you this question: Are you closer to living your dreams now than you were at the start of the year? If the answer is no, then what actions can you take to invest in yourself NOW so that by the end of the year you are where you want to be?
Your time is your most precious commodity and it’s not unlimited so please take that action today - see the travel agent, book a cleaner, go to that course, sign up with a health coach or personal trainer and start living life at your highest potential.
