Have you ever set a goal and not achieved it?
Are you struggling to do that currently?
It could be the way you are thinking about it!
Setting the intention is great. But, when you’re trying to attain it, your thoughts towards it are very important.
Normally you set a goal in the future. It is great to have something concrete and specific. Measurable and precise.
Writing down the intricacies. And to ensure that it is measurable. Not a state. Your goal doesn’t want to be a feeling.
For example, ‘I want to feel healthy’. Of course, you want that but it is better if you have goals that you can measure accurately.
For example, ‘I want to lower my blood pressure to x/y’. ‘I want to have produced x by this time.’ ‘I want to have improved my health markers for my next health assessment’.
The common problem is after you set the goal. With regards to how you are thinking about that goal.
Saying to yourself ‘it’s going to happen’ is telling your subconscious that it’s in the future.
Making it even more elusive.
You want to be thinking that you have already achieved said goal. Telling yourself ‘I have just achieved my ideal body weight’. ‘I have just secured that contract’. ‘I have got the promotion’.
Telling your subconscious to take the required action to meet the instruction/affirmation. To close the differential from where you are now to the desired version of you.
Maybe you are stuck not progressing? As well as not having the right mindset, it could be because you’re taking advice from the wrong people. They mean well and they are more than happy to offer you their opinion. But you should not be taking advice from people who don’t have the lifestyle you want.
And they should not be offering it if they have not achieved what they are advising. After all, you can’t give what you don’t have.
Which makes me want to ask you. Are you…
someone that knows what they have to do but doesn’t take action or put in the work required?
Or are you trying all manner of things? Working away tirelessly to improve your health. But not getting the results from the work you are putting in. You don’t know what you should be doing.
The latter is the type of person I work with. Those that know that there is work to be done to improve their health. But there are gaps in their knowledge of what to do. With regards to diet, exercise, sleep, stress, and performance.
I’m not interested in working with people that are trying to avoid the work required for change. Reluctant to put in the effort to transform them from the person they are now.
When all it takes is some guidance and some elbow grease. To become the future happier, healthier, more confident, better-performing version of yourself.
