It’s hard to stick with something, even when we want to really bad. The problem, is that besides wanting to stick with the new thing, we don’t do anything else to set us up for success.
We say things like, I’m going to start going to the gym more, I’ll eat healthier this week or I’m going to write more blogs. Instead of having steps to accomplish this, we hope it just happens for us.
It’s not going to happen for us. We need to make it happen. If you want to go to the gym more, figure out a way to make yourself go. Maybe it’s writing on your calendar, telling all your friends or your coaches that you’re committed to it.
Here’s the part I struggle with: if you mess up, if you fail, it’s not a big deal.
It should make you mad, maybe a little down on yourself, but that doesn’t mean you need to stop all together. We let that fear of failure get in our way too often, I know I do for sure.
Let’s commit to sticking through things even if we fail. It’s the only way we’ll develop consistency.
