31 DAYS MOTIVATION: You Can Change in 2014
As you reflect on your goals this January, don’t allow yourself to get overwhelmed with how much you need to do. Set your goals, and then look at the reality if you commit to TRYING to reach them – you CAN, and will, improve. Honestly, that is the worst case scenario. For example…
Goal: I want to lose 50lbs.
Reality: I will feel better even if I lose 25!
Goal: I want to pay off my debt.
Reality: It will be awesome even if I pay off a big chunk!
Goal: I want to read through the Bible.
Reality: I’ll read more than last year just trying!
Goal: I want to be live healthier
Reality: The more I workout and eat healthy, the better I will feel.
Even if you don’t reach all your goals, as long as you commit to trying, you can at least make improvements – and that’s a great thing! Think of the things that will improve if you workout more, eat healthier, drink (alcohol) less, go to church more, spend more time with family, spend less time wasting time, spend less, budget more, work more efficiently, be a better steward of your money, time, home, friends, etc. Just attempting these things will change you if you commit to trying.
This year, instead of focusing on reaching a goal, commit to making healthy changes so you can make improvements. As you begin to improve, you will find more motivation to reach your goals, as your goals get closer and closer. Sure, you will never be perfect – but you sure as heck can be better in 2014! Goodbye 2013, Hello to a better year and a better you!
To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often. Winston Churchill
Thank you, Mrs. Pfiester for this post. I’ve already started this year in the right direction. Did my show today and will hit the gym tonight. Have a great 2014.
