I'm working hard but getting nowhere! Does this sound like you? Perhaps you are starting slow this year but feel practically burnt out already.
This is what you need to know:
You will do anything for a sense of achievement, but immediately feel bummed out when you realise it is just 'busy work'.
When your direction is crystal clear, the next best step appears.
Our little, consistent actions add up. Faith and patience, lovely.
This is what to do if you find yourself just being busy.
Schedule time to do nothing. Enjoy your leisure time properly.
Say no more than yes. Is this the best use of my time? No. Random person wants to catch up and you haven't even worked out this year? No.
Ask yourself- 'What am I avoiding?' Then do that. In fact, do that within the first two hours of your day if it is logical and possible. Eat that frog!
Limit yourself to one significant task per day. Yes, little habits are important, but don't intend to make amazing progress towards three goals on the same day. (Although cross-over will happen naturally.) If you want to do the splits (ahem, that would be one of my little, hard goals), give that a full day's intention. Then you will spend an hour on it instead of five unfocused minutes. Again, say no to the need to do too much.
Ask this simple question. Is this actually really bringing me closer to my goal? You may think shuffling paper is the key (God knows I swear by throwing out old stuff to make way for the new!) but is it really a clear step in the right direction. Only you know.
And the power of asking 'Why?'. 'Tell me, amazing mind, why do I keep running in circles instead of doing what is most important? You will get answers if you go deep enough! The next best question is 'What do I need right now so I can take care what is most important?' You may need a dose of self-belief or to ditch old 'obligations'. Again, you have the answers, Gorgeous!
There a tonnes of other ways you can get a wriggle on with your goals. Read the rest of the post to learn more! Share your own insights with me in the comments and ask any advice about your particular situation. You are supported.
Above all else, know that if the goal is meaningful and it really lights you up, having utter faith in it happening and acting as if it will happen is vital.
Tell me, are there any other blocks you are having when it comes to your goals? Let's work out what is really going on. Once we do this, real magic begins to happen.
I can't wait.
If this was useful in any way, share it with someone who may be feeling a little lack-lustre about their intentions for the year. We are in this together people!
All my love,
