Happy Motivation Monday!

motivation monday the lyons share

When you have a big goal, it can be overwhelming.  So overwhelming, sometimes, that you find yourself paralyzed with fear and not actually taking action toward that goal.  Or that you find yourself driving forward, making progress, but failing to celebrate that progress because you haven’t reached your ultimate goal.

Breaking down big goals into bite-sized pieces is something I do with clients all the time.  It’s often way too hard to achieve the goal of losing 100 pounds, “figuring out” digestive problems, or just plain old “getting healthy” by yourself, so I break these goals down into small steps and give my clients just a few things to work on each week.  Do they feel amazing after week 1, and have they dropped 20 pounds overnight?  NO.  But nor do they feel so overwhelmed that they slide backwards or fail to take any action at all.  And the small steps add up.  Each time we take small steps forward, we get that much closer to the ultimate goal.  We celebrate each small, consistent step on the journey.

So today, I encourage you to think about just one small step that you can accomplish right now to move closer to your ultimate goal.  Even if it feels like a small piece of the big picture, celebrate that you’re accomplishing something and moving towards where you want to be.
