Do you love choosing her, the woman you know yourself to BE?
Last year I chose a mantra that served me well, “I love the woman I am becoming in 2020,” which turned out to be a year of tremendous growth. Each obstacle that tempted me to quit, I remembered my commitment to my future self, and continued on the journey. I can honestly say that I love who I am today because I fought hard to become her.
I want to see what happens if I don’t give up in 2021. So, I choose a mantra that will inspire me to keep going in the face of any obstacle.
The inspiration to choose her
Janet, one of my favorite teachers at the Life Coach School, taught a workshop this month called: Turning Obstacles Into Results. This timely workshop focused on an important part of a goal setting process, identifying obstacles ahead of time.
The key to achieving your heart’s desire is to acknowledge that your feelings will wax and wane in the process. Identifying obstacles ahead of time gives you the chance to not only strategize, but understand what you will make that obstacle mean.
Will you make the obstacle mean you are a failure or your dream is impossible? Janet decided that overcoming an obstacle meant that she loved choosing her, the woman who is willing to do hard things to create the life she wants.
Janet inspired me to adopt the mantra “I love choosing her” for 2021. Every time I do something that stretches me, I will proclaim, “I love choosing her,” the woman I know myself to BE!
Keep choosing her
I have used various tools to effectively stay the course; vision boards, Pinterest boards for the word of the year, vision video, affirmations and mantras like my new one for 2021.
Developing a future focus has revolutionized goal setting for me. Don’t get me wrong, I love creating tools like the ones I listed. They just never moved the needle until I learned to create a future from my future.
I understood that 2020 would be a tremendous year of growth as I continually focused on my future self. Moving forward in 2021 I have a strong relationship with my future self and want her to be proud that I stayed the course. I understand that obstacles are not in my path, they are the path. I will choose her on a daily basis.
Will you choose her today, the woman you know yourself to BE? Set her up for success by setting goals.
Wouldn’t it be great if you had clear goals, understood what separated you from your goals and developed strategies that will help you stay the course? Yes! And wouldn’t it be nice if the process was actually fun?
I can help! I’d love to walk you through a goal setting process that I used to achieve my goals for 2020. During one of the most trying years in our history, I became a certified life coach, read fiction books for fun, lost weight, improved key relationships, opened an Airbnb and started a coaching business. One of my clients who went though the goal setting process landed a new job this year.
