Sometimes we become too content with our place in life that we stop challenging ourselves to do better. We get exhausted at the thought because we always set ‘huge’ goals, sometimes with unrealistic expectations.
I want to lose 10 pounds in 2 weeks or I want to be the next President.
Thinking a little high, eh?
Instead of trying to conquer the world in one big gesture we need to think smaller, simpler. Think possible. Whatever it is that you want to accomplish in life start tomorrow. Start small. Be a better person tomorrow .. next week .. next month.
If it’s to have less stress at work pick one thing tomorrow that you just take a deep breath over.
If it’s to lose weight make a small, healthy eating change tomorrow.
Maybe you go from not exercising at all to promising you will give it 20 minutes.
Maybe you come home and spend 10 less minutes on the computer and 10 more on the couch snuggling with your kids.
We have spent years walking down the path that we are currently standing in. If we want to make that change and make it last we need to realize that it’s going to take time, desire, and dedication to start walking on a new trail.
Keep it realistic. Make small changes. It won’t be as scary and you’ll be amazed at how much you can accomplish.
Make little changes every day then look back a month from now and celebrate how far you have come!
