Acceptance and Success

Since I was a child (until about 10 years ago), I struggled with my weight. One day, my mother told me something I just wasn’t willing to hear – and that I needed to accept myself as I was at that time. I told her I would accept myself once I was thin. Clearly, I didn’t get the point.

What I have learned is that acceptance doesn’t mean that we aren’t striving to improve. It just means that if we start from a place of appreciation of where we are and from where we have come, we will have power, confidence, and strength to achieve our goals and dreams.

Set a Bigger Goal

Recently, I was struggling to achieve a specific goal I had been working on for a long time. I couldn’t for the life of me figure out what was wrong. I blamed myself – too lazy, not committed, missing something to carry things through to the finish.

While my self-assessment may have been accurate, it wasn’t the whole story. I soon realized that my goal was too tiny and didn’t inspire me. So I made my goal bigger – not impossible, but enough of a stretch to drive me ahead.

Updates to follow.

Have a great day,

Your Success Threshold

Many people don’t get the traction they want on their goals. Why is that, you may wonder? I believe that they take on too much and don’t have the willpower to go the distance.

So what is the solution? Know why you have chosen the goal and what action could you take that is super easy – absolutely doable! Then you will build momentum and success become a habit.

Warmly,

You Are Better Than You Know

Each of us has an opinion of ourselves. For some it’s inflated, yet most actually discount their talents, skills, and abilities.

While I don’t recommend that you pretend to be more that you are, just be accurate. Being accurate requires that you fully share the precious value that you are. We then all benefit.

Have a great day,

Goals, Concentration, and Success

I find it easy to create new goals and much harder to concentrate on one goal at a time. Yet, I know that focus will actually accelerate my success and open up the space to pursue another exciting goal.

The time, effort, and concentration I dedicate to a goal gives me more than a single accomplishment. There is an even greater benefit: it is who I become in the process of achieving the goal. I gain capacity, courage, and confidence for what’s next.

Have a great day,

Relaunch Success

It is really easy to feel defeated when things don’t go our way. One more obstacle can feel like just TOO MUCH.

So what can a person can do?

My approach is to have at least one thing that I do every morning. This positive habit gives me a clean slate and a sense of hope, empowerment, and positive expectation for each new day. What I have seen is that with this approach, I am happier, more motivated, and achieving things I hadn’t even planned.

Warmly,
Anita
