Do you want it to be easy to reach your goal? Would you like outstanding, exceptional results, and want it to be a comfortable journey to get it? I’m sorry, it’s not going to happen.
Reaching a goal that you’ve never achieved before will not be easy, you will need to get out of your comfort zone and try different things, things you’ve never done before. You will be uncomfortable sometimes. However, when you are congruent with your goal, it can FEEL easy because you enjoy the challenge.
It’s obvious that your behaviour, thoughts and actions from the past is what has brought you to the results you are living today. If you want to create different results, then you will need to engage in different behaviours. You know already that you can’t keep eating poorly and not exercising and reach your body shape goals.
The past is the past, you can’t change what you have done. You can only change the present, to create the future you want. It’s ok to reflect on the past and use it to inform your future, however mindlessly beating yourself up serves no purpose but making you feel terrible, which is more likely to lead to more poor choices. Disempowering thoughts do not lead to empowering behaviour! Empowering thoughts lead to empowering behaviour. Empower yourself with reflection, compassion, forgiveness, self-love, decisiveness, determination.
Believe that you are capable of more! You are. You are designed to grow, and learn and improve. That’s how your human brain is wired. Hold yourself to a higher standard, expect that you will do your best, strive to achieve your daily goals, and notice how good that makes you feel, this becomes a positive, empowering, upward cycle. Read more about that here.
Make change easy by becoming addicted to the challenge. All exceptional achievers do this. As humans we can attach meaning to anything and make it feel good or bad simply through how we perceive it. If you talk about something being difficult, hard, impossible, it will be. However if you think of the same thing as being a challenge, a way to test your problem solving, an opportunity to stretch yourself and grow, then you will begin to enjoy it!!
The key to achieving anything in life, is simply not stopping until you have reached it. To keep getting back up no matter how many obstacles or challenges you have to overcome. You can do it. Focus on your progress and keep at it.
Our brains are wired with mirror neurons, this means when we watch someone doing something, our brain learns as if we have done it ourselves. We learn best and easiest by watching others do what we want to learn. Don’t re-invent the wheel, just find and begin to spend time with people who have achieved your goal, watch what they do. Model their behaviour.
In order to achieve a goal, you need to become the person who has earned that goal. What do you need to shift inside yourself to be truly deserving of the body and shape of your dreams? What do you need to start doing? What do you need to stop doing? Who do you need to ensure you are being? You don’t need to change it all at once, just pick one thing and begin the snowball!
The wackiest and most useful tip to achieving goals and making it feel easy is to imagine that you have already achieved it. That’s right, pretend you’ve got the goal already. Start to act as if you’ve already got it. When you have achieved your goal, how will you feel? Free? Proud? Strong? Grateful? Whatever it is begin to create those feelings in your everyday life now! This will create a quantum shift in your very cells that will draw your goal to you and make it even easier to take the action and achieve. Yippee!
