Today’s Pep Talk is going to be short and sweet. It was one of those mornings where I had 3 thoughts in my head but I picked this one.
At the end of the last few orientations I used the analogy of driving a car.
How much time do we spend looking in the rear view mirror (the past)?
How much time do we spend looking in the side mirrors (comparison)?
How much time do we spend looking at our feet (the present)?
Thank goodness cars are built with the biggest windows facing forward toward the future.
In order to get where we want to go we need to
first – identify where we want to go.
Is it a firm destination or just a feeling we are after?
Better is a great destination but it could definitely be made more specific.
Just like leaner, fitter, happier etc (although we can talk about happy as a destination another time)
Second we must focus on the thing we want.
Let go of the past.
Let go of comparison.
Leg go of how we aren’t there yet (the present).
Focus on where we are going.
Third, right now, we must take action.
Fit Family and Friends you can do it!
Now is the time to reassess your goals.
Ask for help if you need them and keep striving forward.
Remember “most people overestimate what they can do in one year and underestimate what they can do in ten”. (Tony Robbins)
I would go as far as to say that’s true even of 6 months to a 1.5 year span or 1 year to 3 years.
You can do it!
Set big goals and keep taking little, big, flying leaps etc. toward them.
Committed to your success,
