I wrapped my FREE 90 DAY CHALLENGE 1-week ago today, and I'm not going to lie... it's been a little challenging to stay focused without the daily obligation of stepping in front of the camera to film my workouts LIVE everyday. If it weren't for my VIP INNER CIRCLE group I might have already completely fallen off track! This week with my BBM VIP MEMBERS has not only helped me stay the course, but it has also got me thinking so I've decided to take a moment to share my TOP 3 TIPS for Staying Focused on your Goals!
In no particular order, here they are ...
TIP 1. RELEASE EMOTIONAL BLOCKS
The subconscious mind is unbelievably powerful and if you’re trying to accomplish goals with your body, you need to have it on your side. Similar to a filing system, the subconscious mind stores our experiences, thoughts and emotions for future use. Most of the time it helps, but it may also hinder.
Top athletes are famous for tapping into the power of the subconscious. By imagining scoring the winning goal they improve their chances of success. Carve 10 minutes out before you fall asleep each night to close your eyes and mentally envision yourself having already achieved your goal!
TIP 2. BE YOUR OWN BEST FRIEND
Working on yourself can be a tough, lonely road. We beat ourselves up and get caught in endless spirals of negative self talk. We blame ourselves and feel inadequate. We ask, why me? Why is this so hard?
So, I urge you to protect yourself from the trap of self depreciation. Your body is capable of miracles and one day, in the not to distant future, it will give you the greatest gift of your life. It will achieve amazing things and prove you are powerful beyond belief. Talk to yourself as if you are talking to your best friend.
What would you say to her if she were going through your struggles?
Be kind to yourself. Give yourself a break whenever you can. If you need a change of scenery, workout in a completely different way or place. Have a massage. If you’re being super strict with your nutrition, but just need a piece of cake, have it. My acupuncturist once said to me, “It matters what you do most of the time, not what you do sometimes”. Not only is it true but being kind to ourselves helps us stay the course.
TIP 3. WHEN YOU’RE GOING THROUGH HELL KEEP GOING
The greatest secret is YOU. As impossible as this journey to self-improvement may seem at times, YOU will find a way achieve your goals. You won’t stop until you do and you’ll be a better person because of it. When you eventually get to the place you want so badly to be, you’ll appreciate your body beyond belief! All of the struggles you went through will make your achievements that much more powerful because it will be a constant reminder that miracles are possible.
