Many people struggle to stick to goals. I like to think of myself as a determined person who is pretty good at sticking to the goals I set myself. Sometimes. There are times when I don’t stick to goals…
One thing I am good at sticking at is fitness goals. I feel like that’s because it’s something I have more control over than goals such as ‘gain 1000 Twitter followers’. Everything is within my control and it’s all down to me and how hard I need to work. If I put in the time and effort, I see the results.
I know a lot of people struggle with fitness and exercise. One thing I see often is people saying they’ll start tomorrow, or on Monday, or on the first of the month, or the first day of the year.
I’ve got a quote that might help you. I don’t even know if it is a quote, but it is something that has helped me. I don’t know where I heard the concept, but it is something that has stuck with me for a long time when I think of giving up on a goal.
The trick is to imagine where you would if you started 6 months ago. It’s a great way to get yourself to stop putting off your start date and also a great way to keep you on track when you’re feeling like you want to quit.
6 months flies by, doesn’t it? So just think where you will be in 6 months if you power through, stop putting things off and stick to your commitments, it’ll soon be 6 months later and you can look back at your starting point and see how far you’ve come.
