All or nothing

Thursday, January 17, 2013

My Spark Coach session was about getting out of the "all or nothing" attitude, which happens to be one of my biggest obstacles. I tend to be a perfectionist, so messing up throws me for a loop. Since eating healthy and fitness are both struggles for me, it seems so easy to throw in the towel and say, "might as well give up for today and start again tomorrow... Monday... Next week... Next month... Next year." Small mistakes turning into major setbacks. Not a good plan, and not what I do in any area of my life. So how do I stop doing this? By following the advice given by Spark Coach and focusing on each choice I encounter rather than worrying about the past. So here's to making a good choice at the next opportunity... And the next... And the next.

    I like your attitude!

It's about the decisions we make - each one. And about forgiving ourselves when we slip and about avoiding the fixation on failure.

In my book TODAY is always a great day to make good decisions.
And yesterday... well, all I can do is learn from it.

Make it a great day!
