You can’t be a writer, if you don’t write. You can’t be a cook, if you never cook. You can’t be an athlete, if you never train.
So stop journaling on your perfect life and dreaming about your ideal world. Achieving goals is not exactly rocket science. It is about showing up with a focus on what you want to reach. So yes you can visualize it, but with only looking at the perfect picture of you in 10 years from now is not going to make it happen. It is easy to talk about work but at the end of the day you need to get the work done.
And being the better version of yourself wil not happen after 1 night sleep. Instead try to focus on consistency and frequency, rather than intensity and allow the habit to slowly become a natural part of your being.
As in sports you need to have a goal to work to, maybe a game you want to win, maybe more weights you want to be able to lift, maybe a plank for a certain number of minutes, can be anything really. As long as it looks impossible to reach when you start working on it. I have some challenges and dreams I want to realize and that I am working on, personal life, professional life and sport related.
Let me share one of the sport goals I have set : I want to be able by the end of the year 2019 to do 10 diamond push ups. Why ? Because my personal trainer says not so many women can do this.
I am that kind of person, tell me I can not do it, and you give me an extra challenge. But push ups are hard to do, and yes harder on us women, and a diamond push up...not exactly a girl's best friend.
