Today, I want to talk about why going all in with your goals this month is going to set you up for failure for the rest of the year. If you've sensed a theme at all this (see my last post on creating an anti new year's resolution!) I am basically trying to talk about the exact opposite of what most people are telling you to do this month.
If you don’t know me yet, I will tell you that I’m all about inspired ease and creating ease in your business.
HUSTLING MY FACE OFF IS NOT SOMETHING I WANT TO BE DOING...
That’s just not my idea of my dream biz. And, if that resonates with you let me know in the comments!
So I want to give you an idea of what might happen if you decide to go all in with your goals in the beginning of the year.
Let's say you ended 2017 feeling like you’re half-assing your business, and you feel like "oh my gosh 2018 is going to be THE year that everything goes great for me." That’s great energy to have, but putting all of that energy into your goals in the start of the year won't leave much in the tank for the remainder of the year I can assure you.
Hustling and just trying so hard to make everything work right off the bat is not a sustainable energy. And starting off with this unsustainable energy will likely cause burn out, which may lead to failure. (Trust me, I only know from experience!)
What I’m offering as a solution is to pace yourself this month, and the months thereafter, love. Hustling is not the only way to be successful. You can go at whatever pace feels good to you because everything that you desire in your life and business is going to come into your reality as long as you don't stop & you continue believing in yourself.
Here's another way to think about it...
Imagine you are taking a walk at the park.
You parked your car at Point B let's say, and you begin walking.
No matter if you walk slow, or you walk fast you will reach Point B.
THE ONLY WAY YOU WILL REFUSE TO REACH POINT B IS BY STOPPING.
The same goes for going after your goals.
The pace at which you use to achieve them doesn't matter. The only things that matter are the belief in yourself and the consistency of your inspired actions. Literally, that's it.
So, if going at a slower pace feels better to you, DO THAT, because you have to do what feels good in business in order to come at it with the level of passion, creativity and inspiration it deserves
THE BOTTOM LINE IS...
Go at the pace that feels good to you and only that pace.
Don’t compare yourself to other people.
Think of this journey more as a marathon rather than a sprint.
Because at the end of the day I believe we both want life-sustaining businesses that we can do for the rest of our days. Am I right?
My two cents is that you might not get there if you're hustling day after day!
