When I read the quote above it immediately resonated with me and it's the inspiration for today's post. If you’ve been paying attention to my content on IG, you know I’ve been sharing a lot on the power of being consistent. I’m going to let you in on a little secret that I believe will shed some light on this topic and help you understand why you stop every goal or project you start.
I receive messages all the time from women all over the world via email, social media outlets or even in a survey telling me they struggle with consistency. It's an ongoing cycle of starting and stopping projects but yet never completing anything.
Lately, I’ve been thinking a lot about why people don’t reach their goals and the common mistakes that they make over and over again. I will be the first to share that I have flaws and I don't get everything right, However, I am intentional about growing and evolving each day and I'm going to teach you what I've learned about goal-setting.
Somewhere between January and today you've lost focused and maybe even giving up on your goals until next year.
After reading emails, comments on IG + Facebook many of you have called it quits because when life got busy, you decided the best thing to do was to put your goals on hold.
Since I started my journey to being free a few years ago, I’ve become a self-development (personal growth) junkie. From reading books, watching Ted Talks, journaling, I'm intentional about doing the inner work in order to improve my life.
It was August 2013, I took the day off from work to register my son who was five at the time for kindergarten. My unit manager called to tell me effective October 2013, the site would close and every employee would be permanently laid off.
