Here are a few takeaways from today’s video:

  • Remind yourself WHY you want your goal.  The tasks you need to take to achieve your goals can sometimes be unpleasant, challenging and stressful. To overcome the temporary discomfort of working toward a goal, let yourself feel the feelings of what it will be like once you’ve reached success. What does success look like? Be clear about why you want it, the benefits and the impact it will have on your life and you’ll be recharged and ready to see it through to the end.
  • Celebrate small successes. Most people wait until the goal is accomplished to acknowledge themselves. Instead, give yourself credit for daily steps in the right direction. The more you notice small successes, the more inspired you’ll feel. It’s a great way to activate that part of your brain that keeps you resilient and on course.
  • Ramp up the accountability. Put a tracking system in place. Consider asking a friend or colleague to be your accountability partner and check in with each other regularly to report that you’re keeping your word and getting it done.
