It-s-all-good-baby-babyWow!!  We are already half way through 2016.  To think, just 6 months ago, many of us made New Year’s Resolutions, committing ourselves to some sort of improvement in our lives.   Fast-forward to the present.  Where do you stand with your goal or resolution?  Were you able to stick with it?  If so, I congratulate you on your dedication and persistence.  On the flip side, however, is the cold reality that many of us have abandoned our resolutions.  And know what?  That’s ok.…….you are still on the path to accomplishing your goal!  I want to encourage you to regroup and refocus.  Remember, success is a process and not an event.  In many cases, the process involves some stumbles, whether it is failure or losing focus.  If you slipped up, the past is the past; it is what it is.  Learn from it and apply it to the future.  You can get back on track. It’s all good.

Success is a process, not an event.  Here are 5 steps to help us achieve success:

  1. Make a commitment to yourself. It has to become a part of you. You can:
  • Write your goal down.
  • Make a poster or screensaver of the goal.
  • Set a daily reminder on your phone of your goal.
  1. A support system of like-minded, POSITIVE people (see Iron Sharpens Iron).
  2. Focus on behaviors that support your goal, not the actual goal itself. Behaviors that support the goal will lead to fulfilling the goal.
  3. Be flexible. The timing and tools you have may not be ideal, but they are usually enough to get you moving in the right direction.
  4. Be resilient. Distractions and disappointments will come.  Take time to reflect upon them, but do not dwell on them.  Get back on track!
