I love goals. I think they are awesome. I think more people need to make them.
Daring ones. Crazy ones. Simple ones.
Goals that are scary. Goals that will make you better. Goals that will make you grow. Even goals that seem impossibly out of reach.
Go get em’ tiger!
Am I trying to set you up for failure? Psh! Never my friends! I just want you to know that you are so much better than you think you are. You are nothing less than anyone else who is reaching their goals. You are awesome, strong, capable and have everything you need to reach your goals.
You may crumble, totally suck some days and wanna quite. That’s okay too! Really, it is! The wanting to part…not the actual quitting part!
The most important piece of goal making?
You have to start where you are today, not where you want to be.
Start small! If your goal is to run a 5k, start by walking 1 mile. Find success in walking your mile, then walk 1.5 miles. Your success will give you the confidence you need to keep chugging along. On the other hand, if you goal is to run a 5k and you walk out the door determined to run a mile for the first times since 8th grade P.E. I can tell you for sure it’s not going to feel so amazing and you probably wont want to feel not so amazing the next time you go out there…so you may not. And that would be sad. Break up your big goal into smaller baby goals. As small as they need to be.
It is okay to start where you are. Accept where you are, knowing that you won’t be there once you have reached your goal.
Also, put meaning behind your goal. Why is this important to you? Knowing the “why” will help determine your “how”.
Starting small in the beginning will mean winning big in the end!
