On Thursday i had a free day from work and it was a day where i was filled with a burst of motivation as well.
I am a “dreamer” and a goal setter, though i can’t say i am someone who is so much of a “do-er”. I dream and set goals but i don’t always do so much to reach them… which is a problem for me. I have all these things i want to achieve, but i don’t work towards them.
This is for many reasons. Fear of failing, which prevents me from even trying. Not knowing HOW to reach the goal, so i don’t even try… or i try to learn but it all feels too complicated and overwhelming. Worried about the end result not being perfect or turning out the way i want, so once again i don’t even try.
I set goals, but don’t do much to reach them… which is kind of silly. Because no matter how many times i write down the goals or think about them or talk about them, if i don’t do something to achieve them then they won’t happen. I don’t personally believe that things will just happen because you wish hard enough, instead i believe that you have to work for things. For me personally, all of the goals i have set for myself and reached – i have reached them because i have worked for them or done something new/different which has given me the result i wanted. I don’t think i have reached my goals by accident or for free.
For me personally, setting goals is key and keeps my mind focused. I always have goals, but i don’t feel demotivated if i don’t reach them – this is because i know that if i don’t work 100% for the goal i can’t be mad that i don’t reach it. If that makes sense.
Big goals or small goals, i love them!
I am not going to share all of my goals, as alot of them i just want to keep private and instead would prefer to just show the results and not talk about the dream.
One of my main goals for this month and the rest of the year, is to become a Doer! Also to not be so scared…. scared of failure, scared of trying. It is something i really need to work on, because if i don’t try i can’t succeed. And you learn from failure and mistakes. So my absolute main goal is to become a do-er and to reach the goals i set for myself, or atleast work towards them!
Second… i really want to start health coaching and holding lectures. Fear is holding me back. I could start coaching now and i could start contacting businesses, schools, groups etc and offer lectures and coaching, i have the qualifications for it. But i have this fear of failure… or fear that no one will want to listen to me or be helped by me. But i am reminding myself that everyone needs to start somewhere. You don’t start off with 101 offers and 200 clients. You work your way up… just having 1 loyal client who thinks i am helpful is the first step! I just need to sit down, plan things out and then start marketing myself and begin my journey of a health coach for real.
Third, i want to start with YouTube. For the past few years i have used the excuse that i have lived with others and felt uncomfortable filming when someone else is at home… but i have had my own place for several months and still not started YouTube, even if part of me wants to. There is ALOT of fear holding me back… also comparison. What could i contribute with my videos that isn’t already available? I don’t have any fancy editing skills, i am not a great chef or recipe creator, there are already so many ED recovery vloggers and vegan YouTube accounts. I don’t have much of an exciting life so vlogs wouldn’t be so interesting…. So what would my channel contribute to, apart from me being a mediocre youtuber who doesn’t know what she is doing?h hahah. However if you do have any video suggestions or what you would like to see me film, please comment below with suggestions. It might be the kick start i need to just set up my camera and film!
Fourth, i have talked to my mum about doing workshops together, and i hope that by the end of 2018 i have atleast held/been part of 1 workshop/lecture. It is the kickstart i need, and to do it together with my mum who has alot of experience with putting together and holding workshops would make it easier for me, so that maybe one day i can do it on my own.
Fifth, try to stay in contact with my family more. The past few weeks i have had very little contact with my family…. i basically isolated myself for 2 weeks and didn’t answer any messages or calls and if it wasn’t that i posted on Instagram daily i am sure my family would have been worried. I go through phases where i just don’t want to answer any messages or calls or emails (this of course is a little problematic when you work online and have emails and messages to respond to.) My goal is to try to find more of a balance in this area and to of course prioritize keeping in contact with my family first and foremost!
Those were my goals for the rest of 2018, what about my July goals?
Well they are mostly to just work, make time to workout and go for walks, stay in contact with friends and family weekly. Eat more fruit and drink more water! Also to not eat dinner so late that i am ravenous…. this isn’t always possible with my work schedule but somedays i have eaten dinner so late and then i am so hungry it feels like i can eat everything!
There you have a few of my goals!! I would love to know some of YOUR July or 2018 goals? 🙂
