So I have this friend...

...who goes balls to the wall when she commits herself to ANYTHING. She throws every ounce of her amazing focus and determination into achieving her goals. When she decides to lose weight she exercises multiple times a day, tracks her food religiously and has amazing results immediately. She recently did the same thing with her business. She spent 8 weeks focusing on bringing in new business and blew everyone away with her immediate success. In fact, her fellow real estate agents can't get over how well she's done. The problem is that she throws so much energy into achieving her goals that she gets about half way and comes to a dead stop.
Ok, enough, you know it's me by now
. So here's the deal. Since I started sparking I've realized I throw myself into this vicious cycle of busting my buns to lose weight, I do really well, and then I fall off the wagon. Then a few weeks later I'm fighting to get back on and it takes FOREVER to get back on track. I did this with my real estate business as well. My husband lost his job again, I lost my assistant position the same week, so I put everything I had into building my business. Now I'm burned out, discouraged and I've completely psyched myself out. I know the signs, I saw it coming, and yet I wasn't able to prevent it. I also have no idea how to get out of it. This is obviously the last piece to my weight loss puzzle and it also applies to my success with my career.
Today I\m going to focus on getting out of my own head. I'll let you know how it goes.
