You didn’t come this far to only come this far!
Have you hit a plateau towards one of your goals? Here’s how to keep going even when you feel like quitting.
- Remember your “WHY.” When you focus on what you have to do – take so many steps, run so many miles, talk to so many people – it’s easy to get discouraged. Focus instead on WHY you want this so badly, and see how different that feels. Focus on the end result and take action.
- Call someone. Fears, doubts, and worries bringing you down? Call your bestie. A good friend will remind you of your “WHY” even when you have forgotten it.
- Change your thoughts. Notice the thoughts that run through your head when you feel like quitting. Are you hearing “This is hard.” and “I can’t do this.”? Cultivate an inner coach who counters with, “This is worth it” and “Yes I can!”
If you stop, start over. If you stop 10 times, start over 11 times. If you cannot stick to your goal then rethink your “WHY.” It may not have been YOUR why to begin with. Goals and dreams need to be what you want, not what you think you should be doing or what others want you to do.
