I don’t believe in second chances

It’s *Think it Thursday* and I don’t believe in second chances…

At least I don’t believe it ends there.

You may have set a goal for 2018. And you may already feel that you’re failing.

Or the fear that you will fail might be lingering in the back of your mind.

That doubt and fear, is the worst. And when we fear we won’t make it, we usually don’t.

It’s not so much the fear of failing this time that’s the issue. It’s the fear that we’ll never succeed at all.

Imagine for a minute…

Think about a lofty goal that you have.

What if you knew, without a doubt, that you’d achieve it.

What if a crystal ball revealed it, and you knew it would happen.

How much different would your experience of failure be then?

If you overate today, you wouldn’t stay stuck in defeat. You would know it was just a set back and you’d keep going.

If you yelled at your kids (again), you could assure yourself that you would get better and to keep trying.

If you went over budget because you forgot to account for that one thing- it wouldn’t be the end of the world. You would know you were learning. And for sure, you would get there.

Where are you falling short of your expectations and what would be different if you knew you would get there? How can you instill that hope and willingness to persevere?

The magic of becoming better is that you always get more than just a second chance. You have a lifetime to get there.

Commit.

Don’t quit.

And you’ll get there.

Have a great day, one thought at a time!

Easier Than Ever

As you start your week, make a list of 5 things that come easily to you now that used to be hard.

It can be anything.

When I first started my business it was really hard for me to make changes to my website. There were so many things to figure out and it was all new. It seemed complicated and difficult.

Now, it’s no problem. I’ve learned how to do it without batting an eye. I got through the hard part and now it’s easy.

It’s useful to make this list and look at it to see how far you’ve come.

Because of course, you now have a list of 5 things that seem really hard to you. They might seem complicated or difficult. But the only reason they seem that way is that you haven’t done them yet.

One day the five things that are difficult today will be on your “this is easy list.”

The only thing between now and then is time and practice. That’s it.

Make the list.

Celebrate your success.

Remember that it’s possible.

Have a great week!

A Deadline

What have you been putting off doing in your business?

You know, that one little thing that seems like a pain? Or too time consuming?

I want you to set a deadline. Today. Now, in fact.

When will you do it?

What’s the time frame you’ll allow for it?

And what will you finally be able to move forward with when you do it?

Set the deadline. Make it happen. Move forward with your goals.

Have a great week!

You Deserve the Best

You deserve to be treated with love and respect today.

Did you know that?

I know it.

And I deserve it too.

I wonder how you can treat yourself that way today?

Will you say something kind when you look in the mirror?

Will you take time for a walk around the block when you’re feeling stressed?

Will you remind yourself that you’re valuable, even though everyone in the house is taking you for granted?

I hope you do all of those things.

And more.

You deserve it.

Have a great day – one thought at a time!

Create Evidence

A lot of my clients are afraid they won’t follow through. In fact, this fear is one of the biggest reasons they don’t commit to their goals.

A fear. That they won’t follow through.

What’s funny is that they are fully in charge of whether or not they follow through.

It’s not dependent on anyone else. Just them.

And that’s true for you too.

We never have to fear or wonder if we’ll follow through, because we get to decide that.

One of my favorite tricks is to focus on creating evidence for myself. If I tell myself that I’ll get up 30 minutes earlier to plan my day, then every time I do I use it as evidence for myself.

I love to use the question, “How can I create evidence that I’ll follow through?”

This question will always move me toward taking action toward my commitment. And the more evidence I create, the more evidence I have.

And before you know it, I believe that I will follow through.

And I do.

Have a great week!
