What you do need is to work on these 3 things…
Our brain was made to protect us so anytime something feels uncomfortable, we talk ourselves out of it. Have you found yourself doing that before?
If you have, don’t worry. We tend to stick to what’s comfortable to us. Our daily habits, that’s why it is easier to sit on the couch instead of go for a walk or order fast food instead of making that new healthy recipe. Totally normal but in order for us to grow and progress in life we have to break past these habits and create new ones…
Now, I know what you are thinking, “how do I break out of this?”
- Self- Awareness. Recognize when you are doing it and be honest with yourself.
- Learn to Work Through it. Push through when it gets uncomfortable to create the new habit.
- Reward Yourself for Working Through it. Making sure you reward yourself for the small wins will help keep you motivated in the long run.
So many of us have tried things in the past and failed. Then anytime we want to try it again, we start to re-live that fear which is awful because that means you are living in the past and will get the same outcome as past experiences. The only way to get a different result is by doing something different.
How to Overcome Fear…
Stop living in the past, be present, think about desired outcome, try a different approach and just go for it. It really is that simple. We overthink things all the time. Once again, it is our brain protecting us but what this does is holds us back and pushes us further from success.
Set up an Exciting Goal…
When we make our goals, we tend to focus them all around the work side of things. For example, My goal is to drop 20lbs. That sounds like a lot of work, doesn’t it? Not very motivating even though we know we need it. So that goal is most likely not going to be super exciting.
Instead phasing it like this “I am going to drop 20lbs so I can wear a sexy new bikini on vacation” That is exciting. You are keeping your end goal in mind but also thinking of how rewarding it will be to be on vacation in your sexy new bikini! Make sense?
After I learned this little trick , I used it for all of my goals! Whether, it was health, fitness, career, lifestyle, attitude or schooling. Now, I word my goals exactly how I stated above. I want you to give it a try and see how it works for you! Let me know after trying it for a few days. See if you feel more excited, passionate and motivated!
