03 Feb Ready to change your life? Here’s the Jumpstart.
Have you ever struggled to follow through on a shiny new and improved habit or to take action toward a desired goal or life change?
Does the siren call of Netflix and ice cream stall you in your tracks? Or have you used up your daily allotment of willpower by not punching a co-worker or demolishing an entire box of donuts?
You are not alone, sister. Chiseling out new neural pathways that better serve you and spackling over the deeply ingrained existing ones is hard as f*ck.
What would you like to make your new norm? Is it more mindful eating? A robust daily exercise addiction? Or widening the space between a zingy interaction and how you respond? To swap the wine dependence for a green tea passion? Are you OVER feeling underwater financially? Or any other myriad improvements we all want the genie to grant us?
I’ve got two tools for you here.
But first—you can do this.
Many before you have. You have also done other hard things that led to amazingness. Can you pause and revisit those for a moment?
My 2-step prescription for whipping my own ass into gear and taking action, hell or high water:
Get crystal-clear intent on what the required specific action you’ll be taking is + new thought + the resultant feeling. Examples below. Post that shit everywhere. Obnoxiously. Fun fact: the number of daily impressions with this newly minted life-focus is directly proportional to your speed in attaining the desired result. More on that here.
Be accountable in a visual format that makes you want to squirm if you were to break the pattern.
Don’t be a silly overachiever and pick more than one. Pick the ONE item you will be working on. I promise you will have time to do more later. And once you master this process, you can repeat over and over, adding all the luscious wins you want, compounding all these results into a glorious life that you designed and created for yourself. But for now, only ONE at a time. Promise?
