Every time I send out this weekly blog, I get stacks of replies from people telling me how this is the year they’re going to radically improve something in their life.
That’s awesome, right? Nothing makes me happier than knowing my strategies and stories are connecting with you!
But there’s a similar theme in most emails I receive.
People will first tell me what their goal is, and then they’ll share all their elaborate plans to achieve it, often looking like this:
- Daily 5 am yoga class
- Run for an hour at lunch time
- Only drink green smoothies for breakfast etc etc etc
Now, if you’ve set a big goal, made radical changes, stuck to them and completely overhauled your life like this, GO YOU!!!
But that approach doesn’t work for everyone.
And if that approach isn’t working for you right now, have you thought that potentially, you might be trying to do too much at once?
The fact that you want to make change in your life is INCREDIBLE. Seriously, I’m really proud of you!!
But if you wanna make serious and lasting change, I think you have to start small.
Think about it this way. If you had never snorkelled before, would you expect to be able to free dive to 100m tomorrow?
Are you crazy?
Change is most effective when it is sustainable.
So, if you want to improve your health, start small.
Start with drinking more water, or going for a walk in the morning.
Just pick one thing and do it daily.
That’s how you build habits – not by overhauling your life in one go, but by making one small change and sticking to it until it becomes second nature.
It’s the same for any change you want to make – whether it’s about your fitness, business, money or relationships.
Start small, be consistent. That’s the recipe for success. – Tweet it!
Has that struck a chord with you? Let me know if you’ve been trying to do too much, in the comments below.
