Think about the RESULTS: A Little Motivation to Get You Focused this Week!!
The quote above is my new motto for this month! Whatever goals you are trying to achieve in your own personal or professional lives, think about the RESULTS you want in order to push through the times it gets tough.
I have been doing PiYo fitness now for a little over a month, and one thing the instructor, Chalene Johnson, continues to reiterate throughout each workout is to think about the results you want to get...
For me, this is quite motivating to hear.
I have sweat dripping down my face and chest, my legs no longer have any feeling whatsoever, and the thought of having to stretch one leg one more time in the air seems impossible....
"You can DO IT... just think about the results you want to get and push yourself harder"
At this point, I grit my teeth, take a deep breath, quickly try to swipe my face on the towel below me and brace myself for one more push! It feels so good to push through and MAKE IT!!
Although fitness and getting healthy has been my #1 goal lately, I have many other goals I am pushing towards as well. I started thinking about this motto and how important it is that we have an objective for every goal we set for ourselves and we think about that objective to push ourselves harder when pushing seems nearly impossible.
We are all battling something and we all are working towards some definition of personal success or accomplishment. The only competition we truly have is ourselves and positive self talk can make such a huge difference during our journey and ultimately reaching the goals we set for ourselves.
I challenge you all think about the result you want to achieve (for any area of your life) and set three task goals for yourself this week that will help push you a little bit closer to where you want to be down the road.
Make sure these three goals are attainable and get you closer to the results you want (whatever those results may be). If you are brave enough.... feel free to share a task goal you set for yourself this week and how that goal will help you get one step closer to your ultimate goal... and don't forget to think about the results you want to achieve while you are working towards meeting those smaller goals.
I hope you are all blessed this week and get a few steps closer to achieving the goals you set for yourselves. If, at any time, meeting the smaller task goals gets tough... just think about the results you want and push yourselves a little harder. It will be worth it in the long run!!
