Becoming the best version of yourself

Lesson #2

on January 12, 2016

Tired of me yet?  Just kidding . . . I know we can do this 45 days together and feel better about the outlook of our 2016 so here goes #2!

Lesson #2:

When in doubt, just take the next small step.

Boy can I associate with this one.  How often do we set ourselves up to fail because we set the goals too high, too far, too fast?

I have plenty of doubt, especially when trying something new.  Someone once told me that if I would “lower” my expectations, I wouldn’t be constantly disappointed.  This applies to me personally, to my ex (when we were married), my children, my friends, my hobbies, my job – you name it.

But should we have to lower our expectations?

You/We/I need a strong foundation, Rome wasn’t built in a day.  If we’re going to achieve something, then maybe we need to break it down into small manageable steps.  After all, don’t most weight loss programs tell you one pound at a time?

You don’t immediately start a free weight exercise with a 20 pound weight without working up to it.  You don’t run a marathon if you’ve never even run a single mile.

Small steps – that’s going to be my aim for making changes in my life this year.  Manageable and measurable – reminding myself to just take the next small step.

Eventually – you are/we are/I am gonna get there.  See you tomorrow!
