Reaching your goals is one thing. And maintaining them is another. Both take commitment and discipline. So when life shows up as an increase in workload, unforeseen injury or another challenge, how do you not give up? In this podcast, Rick and Keith share what it takes to stay committed when it seems impossible to do so.
Self Leverage: Leverage is the force experienced from the pain of being where we are in life (for example, being obese, addicted, chronically worried, etc.) that is no longer tolerable, so we become willing to endure the unknown and the difficult in order to bring about the life changes that will alleviate our suffering.
Re-affirmation of our goals: Why do/did we want to change? Remembering/experiencing the payoff, confirming our goals in writing; adjusting our goals; relying on our network of like- minded and positive people; journaling our progress.
Visualization: Using mental imagery to see ourselves as already having achieved our desired outcome through detailed forecasting and repetition. For example, a tennis player wishing to improve a backhand would imagine doing it perfectly in painstaking detail, over and over in the mind’s eye.Load Comments
