Why do we lose interest in our goals?
You are all pumped up to start living in a different way. You sit down and plan it out. It is so exciting! You have wanted to achieve this forever. You wake up gung ho to get started!
A few weeks pass, and you notice that you are watching a little more TV than usual, and your goals seem to be falling by the wayside. What happened?
This has happened to me too many times to count. How can something that you are so pumped up and passionate about lose its importance?
Now the more important question: How to fix this issue? I think a lot of it has to do with being very clear why you are trying to accomplish whatever it is you are trying to accomplish.
Next, writing it down has always served me well. Writing it down makes it clear and concrete.
I believe the next step is to get focused. Don’t add new goals in, stay focused on the one you are currently trying to achieve.
The last step is to celebrate your small wins! Every big goal had several little accomplishments along the way. If you do not celebrate the small wins you will get fatigued and eventually give up.
Happy New Year!!!
