It’s July 1st. Why today? Honestly because it’s the day I told myself I’d do this. But it is sort of nice that it comes on the third day of an antibiotic regimen that allowed me to sleep last night and feel semi-human again as I overcome a pregnancy cold which lead to pneumonia and zero sleep for over a week. 😒😷
So here it is, July 1st, the second half of the year has begun, and it’s time to look back at my 2015 List of Goals to evaluate if and where changes should be made. I’m happy to report TWO of my Top 10 goals have been accomplished, and only one needs to be moved to next year (having a baby is going to make a fitness competition hard to do). That’s is MORE movement from my goals list than I’ve ever seen! And you know why? Because I told myself this year was GOING to be my best year yet, and I wasn’t going to take no for an answer!
Let me stop right there. I mean, who cares anyway; why even bother sharing this? Because I’ve been positively inclined, moderately motivated, played this game before…AND FAILED. This time I have succeeded, continue to see success, and want to gain even more momentum to move bigger mountains!
You see, I’m a clinical procrastinator with big dreams. I’ve always worked my butt off, burning the candle at both ends, and several spots between. And I got results, but I always did it the hard way. This time, this year was going to be different. And you want to know why? Because one dream actually came true last year and suddenly my personal mission statement meant more, it was now a promise I actually had to keep.
I know you’re lost, and I promise by Sunday you’ll catch up, IF you can give me just 5 minutes for 5 days. Either you’ll stop reading, or you’ll commit right here. It’s not an ultimatum, it’s just what is going to happen.
As I look back at my list Goal List, I wonder if the other eight goals are unrealistic. And for the first time I FINALLY find myself saying that ANYTHING can be done! After all the two goals I completed were my TOP TWO, and while I’ve marked off “To Do” lists before, I’d never marked something off my goals list!
So what is it I’m making “official” anyway? Public Accountability. I’m taking a leap on my next goal starting today, and that includes building this new website. Be patient, and be a part of the process with me as the site gets better! This is many things, a business site, a landing page for my fitness students, a free service for personal development, a fitness and nutrition guide (Funny side note: “nutrition” was misspelled and auto corrected into “burrito” the first time I typed this…uh no!); but above all, this is a BLOG. It’s a story constantly unfolding, semi-uncensored, and completely imperfect.
So for today, I ask you to do ONE thing. Commit 5 minutes for 5 days to me. Promise when you see my next blog post you’ll read it, and let’s move some mountains.
Fast Track Bonus: I’ll put your mind at ease before you read this section.
No, this ISN’T the ending statement I’m going to “attack” you with Sunday evening 😜.
But it is an open invitation to have you join me on continuing to build the best year yet. This is a business invitation to join a TEAM. So read on if you’re curious. And if not, it’s okay, I promise personal development (and humor) on this blog even if you don’t want to take a leap with me on this one!
If you’re in: Find an accountability partner, a friend, someone who inspires you to do more, and just trust me on this! Jump in, head first, and tell yourself you can! I’m opening spots on my team of leaders, and if you ever wanted to move some ground in your life, NOW is the time; don’t wait for tomorrow, because your choices right now are all that are standing in the way of that “Ah-Ha” moment 6 months from now that’ll make you feel amazing.
Curious yet? Fill out the survey at the end of this link: Why Join Our Team?
Don’t worry, you can always abort the mission if your scared 😉. But it’ll be much more interesting if you hang on and see what’s waiting at the other end!
