Ever get discouraged because you can’t reach your health goals? You might be setting the bar too high… I’m a big believer in baby steps and starting small to gently move towards your goals. When you aim super high from the start it sets unrealistic expectations and when you don’t meet those expectations you get disappointed in yourself and might give up.
You need to accumulate small victories in order to build confidence. These small victories will occur if you are consistent with your efforts. And you become consistent when you take small actions and are successful at them.
Keep in mind that sometimes “success” might mean just showing up (to your workout session, that meditation practice or anything else). There is power in just being in the arena and giving it our best shot even though we might not feel like superstars on that particular day.
My successful approach has been to aim a little lower but with consistent actions and results. Each step I take gives me the confidence to take a bigger step to eventually reach my goal (be it meditating, working out, healthy eating, etc).
Have you been struggling to reach your health goals? Do you know why? We can often be hard on ourselves and even think it’s because we are lazy or just don’t have what it takes but that couldn’t be further from the truth.
You have the power within you to be healthy and happy but you have to set yourself up for success and mini goals are the way to go! Let me know below what you are having challenges with, I’d love to help. We are here to cheer you own when you are doubting yourself in those dark hours.
Sending you lots of love and positive energy! If you want to dive deeper into this topic, continue reading below! Geneviève xo
