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!
