A life without setting goals, no thanks.
Maybe it’s my environment and my tendency to push the status quo, but I can’t help but notice those whom achieve more than the average, comes down to setting targets and pushing for continuous progression.
Now before I get carried away with talking about how great life is with setting big hairy audacious goals, to set a goal that is outside your comfort zone, your confidence wants/needs to be high. I don’t know about you but when I feel bogged down from life, work and just everything in general, setting a goal like running a marathon or losing weight is not likely to happen. I guess you could say that achievements, progression and ticking off goals has a compounding affect.
One goal leads to another, one confidence boost leads to another and so on and so forth.
So what if you are bogged down and couldn’t grasp the idea of setting a ridiculous goal like a marathon.
What if you are bogged down and couldn’t grasp the idea of setting an important goal like dropping off that necessary 10kg’s you have been carrying for the last 5+ years.
You need to take control and action of that moment you get a glimpse of motivation. Motivation won’t last and this desire will soon fly away. You need to take hold of this small moment in time and set something that you have confidence in completing.
Again, some level of confidence is necessary to be setting a goal, so if you are bogged down, low self-esteem, shooting for something that is audacious, is probably not the best idea.
So set something that is a piece of cake, an overly achievable goal.
A “ticker box” goal.
Well in essence you won’t even contemplate not achieving this goal, because it is well within your “do-able” range, you are more inclined to give it a go and make the necessary steps to action it out.
Anyone looking to improve health, improve physical performance at any level would have started with just ticking off small boxes, the micro steps, the easy and “do-able” tasks that accumulate overtime to become something so much bigger.
Are you feeling bogged down towards your potential training goals?,
Are you feeling flat towards your potential training goals?,
Are you feeling overwhelmed towards your potential training goals?
Could you potentially be thinking too large?,
Could you potentially be thinking too long term?,
Could you potentially be thinking too macro?
