Small goals adding up? Or killing it with hitting it hard?
Monday, February 11, 2013
Ok, so the weekend was pretty rough. I pretty much didn't meet any of the goals I had set out for myself. A kind friend mentioned that maybe I had set my goals to high...I probably did, but that leads me to a huge question and one I probably better figure out.
How high do I set my goals. I guess I don't know. I constantly struggle with KNOWING what I need to do but never seeming to be able to do it. I honestly feel that people sell themselves short, and that we are capable of FAR more than we think we are. When I set little goals it never feels like enough. That I could be doing more.
I worked out with a trainer for 4 years who pushed and pushed and pushed. Nothing I did was really ever good enough, so I think I "learned" that somewhere deep within and now that is what I believe. How do I fight that mindset? How do I set myself up for succes rather than setting myself up for failure? How do I make myself believe that if I set small goals and accomplish them that they will add up to a BIG success in the end? I'm not at all sure I believe that. :( Even as I type this, I think it's kind of kooky, and probably needs some work.
