There is no pain-free way to achieve your goals.
So stop looking for one. You aren’t going to find it. Don’t let pain be an excuse. Let pain be a motivating factor.
My goal is to write every single day. This could be a paragraph or this could be 2000 words. I want to develop a routine that promotes writing and to send my writing out to the world.
The last part is particularly difficult for me.
It is painful to hit publish every time I write a blog.
Sharing my thoughts has always been a road block.
The resistance starts. “You’re not special. Why would anyone care what you have to say?”
LIMITING BELIEFS: Beliefs that are holding you back. The resistance to your goals.
Accomplishing goals is a painful process because it is uncomfortable to break free from limiting beliefs.
“You won’t ever be skinny so why even try?” “You aren’t smart enough to get a master’s degree.” “You aren’t musically talented enough to play guitar.” “You’re not good at small talk so you shouldn’t go to the party.”
You have become so used to these beliefs that changing them can seem excruciating.
Luckily, these are ONLY beliefs. These are not reality. You can choose to believe them or you can choose to defeat them. You get to choose what you believe.
Set a routine. Be consistent towards accomplishing your goal. Fight the resistance when it rears its ugly head.
Eventually those limiting beliefs start to fade.
And it gets easier and easier to hit…publish.
Thanks for reading. Happy Friday! I wish everyone the best of luck and remember to enjoy the journey of accomplishing your goals not just the goal itself.
