How do you feel? Nervous? Excited? Ready to jump in? Anticipating the busyness of life to pick up soon? We feel all those too.
It is exciting to set goals. Sometimes, though, I feel like it takes a lot to reach them.
This week, we have Coach Teresa Wallace back to share another tip about setting goals.
Here is her encouragement:
Remember, a journey of a thousand miles starts with just one step.
Celebrate that one step, because now you only have 999 more steps to get to your ultimate goal! Hey, that’s less than 1000 steps!
As you celebrate each small win, your confidence builds, your motivation soars, and you reengage with the larger goal.
A great way to do this is by setting goal levels.
What’s the minimum you can accomplish on the goal and still feel like you’re moving forward? What’s in the middle (a realistic stretch)? What’s the big goal?
Even if you don’t meet the big goal right away, you’re still taking steps forward!”
Take those goals you have written and add in “mini” goals along the way.
And, don’t forget to let us know once you’ve made some of those. We would love to celebrate your wins with you!
