After 2 exhausting days, I can finally breathe and relax with the family. I have been busy putting the finishing touches on leading my team towards a pretty cool achievement at work. In the end we were successful and acheived recognition as being ‘Gold Standard’! So… What’s next?
I can most closely compare this to the first time I lost weight about 6 years ago. I had lost 100+ pounds and felt amazing the first time I stepped on the scale and saw my accomplishment! In the following days I asked the same question, ‘whats next?’. I had formed a belief that I all of my problems would be solved once I lost the weight, and my life would be perfect. I was successful at becoming fit, strong and having more energy. Still, I was in a failing marriage and was in a non-desirable work situation at the time. I realized that I was focused on only one aspect of my life, and losing another 20 pounds wasn’t going to fix my other problems! Ultimately, I threw in the towel and gained all of the weight back over the next 2 years.
So, where am I going with this? Make sure that you are taking steps(even if they are small steps) every day towards the things you want to improve. Take time to celebrate your achievements, then wake up the next day and continue to improve so you don’t regress. Set goals for all aspects in your life and stay focused on what you really want the outcomes to be. As Tony Robbins once taught me, ‘Spend 20% of your time on the problem, and 80% of your time on the solution.’
Never stop believing in yourself! Talk to you tomorrow 🙂
