How to Crush Your Goals: And Enjoy the Journey Along the Way

How to Crush Your Goals www.fatgurlinside.comDo you ever find yourself making goals you don't want to keep? Maybe you want the end result, but the journey there doesn't sound like fun, just a whole lot of work!

For example in the past I've had goals to stop eating all the cookies (Oh, wait... that goal was jut last week). Another goal I've made is to lose 10 pounds or fit into a size 2 again.. etc. None of these goals sound like fun things to work towards, and quite frankly they are goals that focus on all the wrong things.

Lately I've been thinking about transforming the kind of goals I want to set, thanks to a little video by Brendon Burchard. He challenged my thinking on how I create goals and it makes sense.

What if instead of setting my mind on not eating cookies, which inevitably will mean I will only think about eating cookies all the time, I set my mind on eating healthy and delicious food? That sounds like a whole lot more fun to me! Instead of having to avoid something I love my focus will have turned to being creative with trying new recipes and finding ways to make my favorite treats more healthy.

What if I then took that mindset and applied it to getting in shape. So, instead of a goal to lose 10 pounds, I make a goal to feel great, have more energy and feel like I can tackle anything that comes my way. Again, doesn't that sound a lot more doable, fun and motivating? Who wants to wake up and think, "Yes, I'm going to workout so I can one day lose 10 pounds!"? Not me! I would rather wake up and think, "Yes, I'm going to workout so that I feel great, have more energy and start my day in a way that I will be proud of myself!"

So, today I'm going to work on creating goals I actually want to achieve and not dread!
