Why do we become overwhelmed? Stuck? Paralyzed in planning?
Most likely because we tell ourselves the story that what we most deeply desire is a mountain to climb. That it will take A LOT of effort. In fact, it might even take a really, really, really long time.
Think about that mindset. It’s kind of exhausting just reading it!
Now think about something you brought into your life with ease. What was different in the way you approached that goal or dream or wish? Most likely, it was simply good old fashioned “slow but steady” progress. The fun thing about this kind of approach is it’s not exhausting. In fact, with little shifts, or as I like to refer to them as “little life pivots,” our lives quickly begin to look different, feel different... and as a result we experience things in different ways.
If you have tried to achieve the same goal over and over... make the decision today to simply stop and reassess. What is one, just one, action step you can take each day for the next week? Added bonus of little life pivots…they create momentum. The sweet feelings of accomplishment build and before you know it, you have reached the top of the mountain.
Have a great weekend!
