HOLY CRAP we have to do a lot of hard stuff! Whether you are pursuing a dream or have had something hard thrust upon you and are choosing how to navigate it, it means you’re GROWING and this episode is for you!
I’m sharing 4 principles that will help create your “I CAN DO THIS!!!” moment and take action on the hard thing you are up against right now, TODAY.
1.Get your mind right!
Do you feel like you’re on the edge of a breakdown when you’d rather be on the edge of glory? I GOT YOU! The first principle is all about getting your mind right! Because you can’t expect impossible things from yourself when what you REALLY need is to heal. It is not the actual thing that is hard, freaking 90% of the battle is your mind! Gotta get your get your head in the game!
2. Get realistic about your time!
Let’s get real about actually taking action! Real life tips and tricks here! Decide how long something is going to take you, and then do it! Time yourself, set time limits! If it takes longer than you think, who cares! The time is going to pass anyway!
3. Make the goal just as much about the growth and the process as it is about the result.
It’s important to do hard things, both the elective stuff we take on and the stuff we are thrown into, because THIS IS WHERE WE GROW. Keep the result goal as the goal, but also keep the process and growth along the way in the forefront. Take the pressure of WINNING off and let the win be in the doing-in the growing! You are doing a really good job!
4. Remember it’s all relative baby!
It can be easy to let shame creep in with thoughts like “This shouldn’t be this hard!” or “Why can’t I do this!?” Do these thoughts serve you? JUST BECAUSE IT’S HARD DOESN’T MEAN YOU’RE DOING IT WRONG! And just because something is hard for you that is easy for someone else doesn’t mean you are not valid in your struggle. That shame game and crappy comparison is robbing you of putting your resources where you need them and really believing YOU CAN DO IT! I know you can! And I know this episode will help you do it!
