Article by Wendy McCance
We are at the end of January. One month of the new year is in the bag. Now is the perfect time to review what your goals are for 2013. Have you started to work on those goals? Do you think based on one month that you are starting on a more productive path?
These are the questions I have been asking myself the last few days. What did I like about 2012? What would I change in 2013? Have I started to change the direction to a more positive one, or am I already bottoming out?
Everyone struggles with the process of changing thoughts into action. I know I have had a particularly difficult time trying to move towards my goals.
What is it about taking that inner voice and making some actual moves towards your goals that is so hard? I mean I can see where I want to land. When I gear up and do the work, I feel excited to be pushing myself. I also feel relief that I am not dragging my feet. Yet, the process of kicking yourself in the butt and doing the work is still difficult to begin and even harder to continue to do.
Anyone can have anything if they put their mind to it. It all comes down to how badly you want something. How willing are you to break those bad habits and explore some new avenues? Going on an adventure into the unknown sounds like fun. You know, just shake things up a bit and see where you land. Why is it so hard then to take a leap towards something you know will be better?
I am determined to see my goals through. If they don’t end up panning out, I know that it will have still been worth the effort. How about you? Are you plugging away at your goals, or have they already fizzled out? Write a comment and share your goals and where you’re at. Let’s pull together and motivate each other. 🙂
