HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
Last week I told you that a conversation with another coach inspired my word for 2021. We were discussing how motivated I am to really crush some goals this year and he said to me “you can be motivated but if you aren’t committed, it won’t happen”. The thing I love about coaches is that the one liners they speak out of love and gentle inspiration are sometimes the biggest gut punch you’ve ever needed.
In that moment, I realized that he was right. People often say things like “I’m just not feeling motivated lately”, “I need to find my motivation”. People are motivated on days like today when it’s January 1, goals are abundant, hope and excitement is completely tangible. By March, a lot of that has dwindled and the gyms have gone back to a respectable wait time to use a treadmill. The people that quit on themselves and their goals aren’t lacking motivation. They’re lacking committment. I know this because it’s been my goal to get to a healthy weight and size for my entire adult life. I know what to do. I’ve studied the science, majored in dietetics in college, and “tried” every diet known to man…unsuccessfully. Sure, I lost some weight but quit on myself about the time I hit my upper limit problem. I wasn’t committed. In fact, when I did the autopsy, every goal I’ve ever made and didn’t crush was because I wasn’t completely committed. Hence the quotes around tried. Is it really trying if you aren’t committed to it?
2021 is all about committment. Commitment to myself, my dreams, my goals and becoming the best version of me there is! Who’s with me? Who needs accountability to stay committed? I’ve hired a business coach and a health coach in the last 2 weeks and I couldn’t be more excited to have them kick me in the pants when I “seem to have lost my motivation”. If you’re wanting that accountability from a life or relationship coach who’s actually doing what she’s preaching, I’m your go to!
So CHEERS to 2021! Cheers to committment! Cheers to crushing some serious goals this year! Cheers to hiring a coach if you find yourself quitting on the person you see staring back at you in the mirror.
I’ve seen the meme that says 2021 will not be your year, that we’re going to ease into it because we don’t know what it brings. Bull. 2020 was the year the arrow was pulled backwards. 2021 is the year that arrow is let go and moving forward with incredible speed!
Happy New Year, friend! This WILL be your year because you are COMMITTED!
