Today is the last post in my ‘2015 Success Now’ series. I feel sad.
When I started this series I had no idea what December would hold for my family. Absolutely no idea.
If I had known I would have never started this series. But, I am so glad I didn’t know because while I hope you have learned from this series; so have I and I have enjoyed writing each post.
Also, I have loved the comments you have e-mailed me about how these action steps are changing your business and your life. I feel like I’ve gotten to know many of you better and I love that feeling!
Did December fly by for you? It certainly did for me. Not necessarily the 12 days in the hospital with Emily but now that all seems like a blur.
This morning I went back to my Kosama gym after being gone 20 days. If you go regularly to a gym and had to stop for any reason then you know how hard it is to get back in the swing again. Not so much physically; but mentally.
My plan was to go to my normal class at 6:10 am and I hit the snooze button several times and then decided to go to the 9 am class. As the time got closer and closer to 9 am I came up with all sorts of excuses not to go. I knew it would be hard for me to keep up with the others in the class, I knew I’d tire easily, I knew I’d be upset that I wasn’t in the condition I was 20 days ago, and on and on.
I went anyway. Please read this again – I went anyway.
During this ‘2015 Success Now’ series I have given you a lot of action steps to take to get into shape for 2015. A lot! Really too many to start and keep going in a 30-day period.
My goal in giving these to you was not that these are steps you do once and you are done. All of them must become a way of life for you to really get the best advantage from them. They are steps you do over and over consistently.
I went to Kosama today and you know what? It wasn’t as bad as I thought! Yes, I went at a slower pace than others but as the class continued I became stronger and stronger. When the class was over I was super surprised to see that the calories I burned were not a lot less than I burned per class before my 20-day break.
Isn’t that interesting? We can get back in shape much quicker than we think. As you look over the 29 action steps I gave you since December 1 you may have started a few and then stopped. That’s ok. Pick them up again. It won’t be as hard as you think.
Today I want you to set yourself free from thinking:
- If I tried it once and gave up it’s not worth doing
- If I try one of these steps and don’t do it perfectly it was a waste of time
- There are just too many action steps to take to get me ready for success in 2015. I’ll just do things like I’ve done in the past and hope for the best.
Set yourself free from any thoughts of what you wanted to have happened in the past 30 days but didn’t. Set yourself free and start again.
