Today I want you to know that you're not sabotaging yourself. Whenever you feel that you're not following your own plans, don't underestimate yourself, push yourself down, stress, frustrate over it or feel guilty.
If you are feeling stuck, overwhelmed or frustrated... I understand.
With so much drama happening all around us, it can be difficult to stay on track.
Let me ask you this:
Have you ever thought about setting a goal for yourself so you wouldn't have to fail again? But then decided not to?
Have you ever quit something that you promised yourself you would do? Even if the end result was something you really wanted?
I did. I'm still doing this but very rarely. I admit it...
Have you set a goal or joined a challenge, then not followed through?
I tell myself I am flexible and change the plan. In fact, sometimes, I just want to take care of my health or enjoy the free time that I have, instead of following a plan I have made.
And if you're doing things this way, you are not alone.
Research shows that 92% of the people who set goals...
...fail to accomplish them!
(And some people never set goals to begin with!)
So why do so few people succeed?
Here's what I think: Even when you know what to do, and even if you really want success…
...limiting beliefs about yourself or the world can pull the rug right out from underneath you when you least expect it.
In fact, your behavior and your results are much more powerfully influenced by what you believe unconsciously than by your conscious desires and intentions.
You could be doing this to yourself without even knowing that you're doing it!
Does any of the following sound familiar?
You quit when things get uncomfortable or you have a setback...
You procrastinate ("I'll start tomorrow/Monday/next week")...
Your willpower fails you exactly when you need it most ("I'm too tired to do that today")...
You unconsciously make bad decisions ("It's my birthday. I'll just have one small piece of cake" when you are on a diet and continue eating more and more sweets or "it was a rough day, I deserve a drink" and then comes another and another)...
Even with the best of intentions... with the clearest plans (even if you know exactly what to do and how to do it)… you could still unknowingly be dragging yourself down.
But don't worry, you can take back control!
And when you do, you will have more confidence, joy, freedom and success in all areas of your life.
We all have limiting beliefs. The problem is that we often can’t see them ourselves.
👉 My secret is to do whatever aligns with my energy, with my health, with my money, or with the mood that I have. Yes, my mood is the exact clue of how I am feeling at a certain moment. So, if my energy, my mood, or any of the above tells me to stop following a certain plan, then I will with no remorse. I might continue doing what I wanted to do later or not at all. The important fact is that I always analyze the advantages and disadvantages of the decisions that I am taking. It's called "ecology" in NLP or congruence. I just think my emotional, physical, and mental health is the most important. The rest can be achieved through the same plan I had or making another strategic approach to go through.
You can just find ways to work with yourself, use the proper tools to help you on how to break through the thinking that holds them back from the life you wanted for yourself.
If you are wishing to end the life loops, the cycle of procrastination and falling short of your goals or simply getting unstuck and loving yourself start by identifying the areas you would like to transform, pushing past limiting beliefs and emotional blocks, setting realistic goals, and giving you the tools, practices, and the guidance you need.
Trust me! You can create new beliefs, new habits, and the life you deserve and desire.
