Day One. Here’s something to Think About, To Try, To Know and To Ask.

Something to think about…

It’s great to have a goal but don’t get too caught up with the result, your time is better spent focusing on your output rather than obsessing over the outcome. 

Concentrate on the process, effort, time and dedication you put in, rather than fixating on the end result. By directing your attention towards the quality of your effort and the steps you take, you’ll reduce unnecessary anxiety about uncertain outcomes and find greater success and satisfaction.

Focus on your output and your outcomes will follow.

Something to try…

Be beautifully selfish for a month and see what happens.

WTF I hear you say!” But hear me out… what if you put yourself first, before anyone else.

So often, we are there for our friends, family, and we prioritise every other relationship above the one we have with ourselves. So what it, for just one month, starting from today, you became your own top priority.

Your own cheerleader, your own best friend?

How would that look?

You could start by taking a bit of time for yourself every single day, even if it’s only 20 minutes, before anyone else gets a piece of you. And protect this time.

Put it in the diary like any other meeting or appointment. Non-negotiable

Imagine the positive ripple effect when you fill up your own cup first. Not only do you benefit, but so does everyone around you. Be your own best friend, invest in the relationship you have with YOU. Be beautifully selfish. You might just discover a version of yourself you’ve longed to meet.

Something to know…

It ‘Quitters Friday’ tomorrow.

In 2019, Strava, a social network platform for athletes, undertook a comprehensive study. This research revealed that around 80% of Strava users who set New Year’s resolutions, abandoned them by the second week of January.

Analysing over 800 million activities logged by their users in that year, Strava saw that their users motivations typically start to wane by the second Friday of January. This date was pinpointed as the critical point when the majority of resolutions were abandoned.  

And the number one reason for people failing to stick with their New Years resolution….

Setting unrealistic goals; going from nothing to all in.

So if you feel your motivation is fading, don’t quit ‼️ Just start again, start small and be consistent and don’t let a false start stop you from achieving your goal.

Something to ask yourself…

What is your future self saying no to that your current self is saying yes to?
