Hi family! Have you ever had the feeling that there was something more you wanted to accomplish in your life? The question is, where to begin. This is where I happen to be in the present moment. I have all these great ideas and things that I want to do but the list seems so long that it can be overwhelming.
For instance, let’s take this website that you are currently reading this blog on. For 3 years I have wanted to rebrand everything in my business. It was a massive undertaking and had to be done in 3 weeks’ time to offer you all the free fitness classes that went on this summer. So, what am I saying? Add a deadline to what you want to accomplish. The fitness classes were starting after the 4th of July, and I needed 2 weeks for people to be able to register. This now made my idea urgent and necessary, and it got done. Yeah, me and my wonderful admin! Something that was lingering on my to do list for three years, suddenly found a deadline and became a reality.
Can I encourage you to decide to put an end date to your goal? Just choose one for right now that you can focus on. Do you want to eat better? Decide to cook 2 new recipes per week. Do you want to learn a new language? Commit to putting the Duo Lingo app on your phone and set an alarm to practice 15 minutes a day. Do you want to spend more time with your kids, spouse, significant other or family? Schedule a time every month to do something special.
Here is the thing: the way you get unstuck is to move a little bit at a time. Tell yourself I really want to do this and then take baby steps with a deadline to accomplish it. You will be so surprised how much ground you will cover. Take this blog for instance: My admin gets on me about getting it out monthly and I wait till the last minute every time…lol. I am literally sitting here writing it at 11:53am on August 30, for September 1st. You know what motivated me? You all did. I know I can not be the only one feeling that I have things to offer, whose soul longs to escape the mundane activities of the day and reach for the things that will light up my life and bring unspeakable joy and satisfaction.
When we do this, it makes us a better person and a gift to the world, ourselves, and our families. My “more” specifically is to help women be great in their God-given purpose and talent while living a healthy life. This literally became clear to me about 2 years ago. You see, my business led me to my passion. I knew there was more than just fitness and nutrition classes. So far, I have led 5 different Women’s groups for my church and have had two speaking engagements in the last 2 months. It is beginning to happen.
Can you do me a favor? Identify your purpose, your place, your thing and get unstuck! There are people waiting on your gifts and talents to help them succeed. And of course, the biggest benefit of all is you are walking in your purpose. Nothing is better than that.
If no one told you today “You are amazing”. Go be great. I would love to hear from you in the comments, on social media or right here on the website. I am cheering you on.
