It’s unbelievable that next week marks the half of 2019. The first 6 months of 2019 have absolutely flown past us. Let’s take this moment and think about your last 6 months.
Majority set a New Years resolution in the beginning of the year. Some of us don’t like the sound of a “new year resolution” so we set our own personal goal. We set these new year resolutions or goals for one reason, to accomplish it. We set them because we believe it will make us better which is true. We set them because it is supposed to motivate us which is true. But I don’t want you to think of your new year resolution or goal as a pass/fail marker. That is why many of us stop working on them.
We put this pressure on ourselves that if we don’t complete it, it will be a failure. That is completely untrue. The process of making the effort to work on your goal is what is making us better. You have to fall in love with the process. We have to fall in love with hard work because it makes us really learn about ourselves and grow.
In the beginning of this love letter I asked you to think about your last 6 months. I want you to think about what you stopped working on because it got hard. I want you to think about where you would be if you continued with your process. You have all accomplished many things in 2019 so far, there is no doubt about that. But what did you leave out there that you could have kept working on? Whether you accomplish that particular goal or new year resolution, the process is what will make you better.
There is a great quote from Tony Robbins that says “The purpose of a goal is not to achieve it, the purpose of a goal is to become more”. If you achieve your goal, that is great! But if you don’t achieve that goal you still become better as long as you really worked on it.
So let’s re-set your new year resolution or any goal you might have and give it all you got because you will end up victorious regardless! Don’t change your goals, change your perspective on goal setting.
