Easter is approaching, and for many of us that means a bit of a break, family time and I know at least for me a LOT of chocolate! My favourite thing!
With this extra time to sit back and reflect, I’m just curious – how are your goals for 2011 going? Are you on track? 4 1/2 months have past which leaves us with only 7 1/2 months left to take action and get results! Where are you? Are you sailing full steam ahead, ticking off goals as you go, on track or even ahead of schedule? Or are you falling behind, you haven’t been able to tick off as much as you wanted to, and are feeling a little overwhelmed? Or are you completely disillusioned with the whole thing, you can’t remember the motivation and promises you made in January and you’re thinking of just coasting through, and in 2012 making it your year?
How many of us do that? Set a goal, then realise horror of horrors – it’s going to take work to get it! That it’s ‘hard’, ‘impossible’, ‘not worth it’. Unfortunately, I see too many people give up at this point. They thought life was meant to be easy, and they don’t get going when the going gets hard. … Not you I’m sure … but other people!
So, I encourage all of you to take this extra time over Easter, and reflect on how your life has been the last 4 1/2 months. If you’re happy with it, you are growing, achieving results and you can see moving forward like this will get you to where you want to go – then rock on! Have another Easter egg I say!
But if you realise you have sat still, not achieved what you wanted, and are not moving forward in a way that will mean this will change, then what are you waiting for?
