As we move towards November and into December, people often start to think about their goals.
What are you wanting for next year?
Who do you want to be?
What do you want to create?
And you know the statistics. Most of those goals never get met.
Why is that?
I can tell you exactly why. It’s because resistance, in whatever form it takes, gets in the way.
Resistance can be the “not good enough” talk, it can be the list of excuses (too tired, too busy, too skinny, too fat, too weird, too awesome…), it can be blame and finger pointing…there really are so many manifestations.
And whichever happens for you, it’s going to do everything it can to keep you back in old patterns habits so you never leave your comfort zone and move into the beautiful extraordinary life you know you deserve.
Pretty awful, huh?
Want some Resistance Repellant?
Here you go: Identify your “WHY.”
For instance, as I did what I needed to do this past year to hit all my goals, the one “why” that really drove me was to move to San Diego. Moving to San Diego was the reason I created the specific business strategy I did, accompanied with specific life strategy.
These strategies drove every single one of my choices and my decisions, and helped me be much more assertive in any given situation. If the behavior or choice didn’t align with my “why,” I knew what the answer was. And if it did…I knew what the answer was.
The difference between someone who has a goal in their mind and then never follows through with it and me–and ANYONE that is successful– is that I/we know exactly WHY that goal is important to me/us. And we’ll do WHATEVER it takes, even getting comfortable with getting uncomfortable, to accomplish it.
So that begs the question…what is YOUR big why?
I’m eager to know. Comment below with whatever comes to your mind first. Then write it up in big letters on a poster board on your wall. Let it lead the way.
