I smashed through some massive goals earlier on this year – finished and published my book ‘Just Another 5 KM’ on Amazon, bought a home, started doing some work for an amazing health and nutrition company. Mid year I seemed to plateau with my health and running goals due to sporadic injuries, and chose instead to focus on non impact, weight bearing exercises such as walking and swimming.
Reinvigorated with life, I set new goals and entered the next phase of developing as a professional speaker and delivering some inspirational speeches.
Sometimes we need that ‘plateau reflective time’ to reset for the next surge of activity.
I feel the time before Christmas, and especially the time between Christmas and New Year is a great time to reflect back on the year that’s just been and be reinvigorated for the year ahead.
- What are you grateful for this year?
- What are you proud of achieving when you look back at your 2016 goals?
- What are you committing to do more of?
And with 6 weeks before Christmas, and 7 weeks to the end of the year, what else can you achieve?
Are you on ‘wind down mode’ or is it your last chance to ‘smash things out’ before the clocks tick over to another year.
I’m choosing to set myself a new goal, a feeling of ‘last minute cramming in for your exam as a student’ as FINALLY I’m injury free (believe me this year has been a long haul in recovering from sporadic calf and achilles injuries)
*****5 KM Race ***** before the end of this year.
I’m literally starting from scratch again, with a base running fitness of only being able to run for 5 minutes straight. Considering I ran a marathon last year, this is a humbling experience to start over again with my fitness and running.
Have you been injured this year too, and looking for a challenge to end the year on a high? Are you invigorated to set another goal for yourself? Or are you on cruise control, winding down towards the end of the year?
Either way, one thing that’s guaranteed is that time will tick on by regardless of what you choose to do. And you can either choose to be the ‘best version of you’ on a daily basis, OR shrink back into the ‘normal, familiar default way of being’. Why don’t you make the next 6-7 weeks towards the end of the year count?
Wish It … Dream It … Do It!
You know who you are….
You know you were born for more ….. be more … do more and have more.
You’ve known this for a long time. This always has been and always will be the case for you, right!!!
Don’t get me wrong, you’re truly grateful and blessed with your life now, and yet like a river flowing downstream, it’s never the same on it’s journey, you too never stand still, as you evolve and grow deeper into who you truly are.
You’ve always known this.
You might stand around for a while admiring the view, and then you’re off with a new goal.
You’re results focussed and know there’s always a way.
Sometimes you just need to figure out what that way is, and then you’re off again.
You strive for more in all areas of your life. Some areas you have nailed. People look at you in awe and wonder how you do what you do. It’s something that comes naturally to you, you’re just in flow, and you wonder why other people don’t get that.
And then there are other areas in your life, that you feel you are WAY off track in.
For you it could be your fitness, your business, your relationship, your finances AND you long to find the ‘missing’ piece to it all, and then life would be sweet again, complete almost.
Does this sound like you?
Totally I hear you and I get you. As I’ve been down that path many times before to get to where I am now.
You and I are similar in so many ways. We’re always looking for the next thing, the adventure, the rush, the growth as well as the stillness in the now, the gift of the present because that’s where we are right now.
I’ve battled the demons inside of me, thinking and believing I should be a certain way, fitting into society, my family’s and friends’ image of me. Oh and I tried, oh did I try to ‘be’ that person, so much so that my Mum called me an ‘enigma’ cos I could just adapt to my surroundings so well.
On the outside, yes, but on the inside, I was denying every cell of who I truly was back then, and who I am and what I stand for today.
And now I’ve found the answer that I was looking for, that was always within me all along.
So if you too are also sick and tired of ‘fitting in’ and wanting to run your own course, beat to your own drum, follow your heart finally and live a fulfilling life, then we need to talk.
And in the same breath there’s a part of you, that’s keeping you on the cliff, not yet ready to fly, not ready for that leap of faith ….. BUT you also want to feel complete, to trust again, follow your heart always and live a fulfilling life.
If this is you, then PM me, because I will guide you to find your own solution to your ‘missing piece’. The thing, that you’ve been searching for all this time. It is within you, you’ve just forgotten where to look for it. Together we will find it. And you will learn to trust, believe and start to live a fulfilling life on your terms.
Wish It … Dream It … Do It!
