Am I losing the fire already?
Tuesday, January 11, 2011
When I got up this mourning I did want to go down into the basement and get on my treadmill. I thought Wow what's happening? What happened to the fire? So I made myself get up and signed on to SP thinking I'll find something there that will fire me up. Nope not much going on there at the time. So I went back to bed.
Now lying in bed I'm thinking I can't really go back to sleep. What are my choices? Only I can chose what I do next. Got up put my shorts on and headed down stairs. I had set a goal on Jan. 3rd that I would w/o 6 days a week. Because I had made this choice in advance I knew what had to be done. Got myself on the treadmill. After 1 min. of walking I was feeling the fire. Wondering why I even want to stay in bed.
Last week the number one trait I felt I needed to develop that would help me reach my goals was Optimism. I needed to be excited about what I could accomplish in 20ll. This week I decided I needed I to have a strong desire to stay motivated enough to reach my expectation that I have for the coming year. I am the tender of my fire of my desire. I have to want it bad enough that I can over come my fears. Focusing on success rather than failure. Success has to become my dominant Desire.
So this week is about building that desire. How can I make It strong. How can I make it totally dominant. How to stay optimistic and become more so.
