Unable to be five steps ahead of everything and everyone. No longer having that focus and motivation for exercise and eating to take care of their body.
The truth is... YOU ARE NOT FAILING. You are living through a pandemic - GROWING and EVOLVING every day.
You are learning more about yourself and the people in your immediate world, than you probably ever have before. The intricate details of …
And, if you have the pleasure of home schooling like me add re-learning Grade 2 to that list (argh!).
This is your reminder, that real life will still be there, after the pandemic. And so will your dreams and goals.
The body you are unhappy with right now, can absolutely make a comeback. The job that you cannot stand, might feel different when your office returns or after a holiday (or maybe it’s the push for you to make a change). The relationship that is causing you frustration, will hopefully look different when we can have more room to breathe and external outlets.
And that goal or achievement that you set a date for and missed, doesn’t mean the goal isn’t worthwhile! Zoom out and see the bigger picture, perhaps there has been more to learn on the way to that goal you want to so much?
In my map of the world, there is NO failure. There is ONLY feedback.
Notching your failures is what keeps you feeling stuck, literally reliving the past with your mindset fixed on “I failed - it will never happen”.
Where as a growth mindset says “What I can learn from, I can change” which keeps you moving forward (and feels so much lighter doesn't it?!)
What have you had to learn, grow, heal or fix this year….?
Answer that first, and then shift your goal posts.
So, how do you get unstuck?
Side note: I really hope that if you are reading this and still in lock down that the only goal you are setting for yourself right now is focused on your health and happiness! I know your world being on pause is frustrating, I feel it too.
Let's be honest - NO ONE is really achieving right now!
I don’t care what you are seeing on social media. Everyone is hurting from this pandemic. Everyone is just doing the best they can to survive and make it through. And if they are achieving then I have no doubt that something else has had to give.
I am a firm believer that you can do anything, you just cannot do everything to 110% all at once without a ball dropping somewhere!
