Consistency is EVERYTHING.
Today, I wake you with my lemon water & some motivation!
In life, for the most part, the results we are searching for won’t come quickly or easily!
BUT, they don’t take that long either.
In my experience, often, it just takes a little bit longer than we’re comfy with.
So, I have a proposition for you.
What if you decided to drop the quick fix mentality & commit for the long run?
What if, instead obsessing over (& getting discouraged by) the short-term results, you chose to focus on the small steps you need to take each day to get to your ultimate goal?
What if you turned your obsession to the daily disciplines that you KNOW will make a DIFFERENCE & let the results take care of themselves?
WHAT IF YOU DECIDED TO MAKE A PERMANENT CHANGE & STICK TO IT?
If you do this, you’ll see that by shifting your focus away from the end results, you would see PLENTY OF THEM.
BUT HOW DO YOU DO THAT, right!?
For starters, get rid of your need for short-term gratification. Recognize that true & sustainable change doesn’t happen overnight. BUT, you have the power to change the direction you’re heading in & this is enough!
Look at your long-term goals & ask yourself what you can add everyday to get there.
Commit to your habits, not your goals.
Goals can give you the most motivation in the world but they can also get you stuck in a plateau.
The issue with placing too much focus on goals is that they remind you HOW FAR YOU HAVE YET TO GO & this can be overwhelming.
But, if you stick to daily habits instead, the more you’ll get used to & addicted to them. They will become routine & you will build SERIOUS MOMENTUM!
Once you’ve got that down, make sure to review progress! Celebrate what you did well, reinforce yourself & be proud of your accomplishments.
BUT, don’t forget to assess what went wrong, why & adjust the game plan!
All this to say, LEMON WATER! I’m kidding!
Seriously, FALL IN LOVE WITH THE PROCESS. When you do, it becomes something you just do. It’s your lifestyle & your identity.
Suddenly, you won’t need willpower – it becomes natural!
SO, FOCUS ON YOU!
The rest will come naturally!
