You know what? Sometimes we can be our greatest obstacle. No one can stand in the way of your greatness, but you. Don’t get me wrong, there are many valid excuses, genuine road blocks and heavy situations that might encourage you to give up on yourself but none of them should be stronger than your will to be great!
If you find yourself having one of those days where negative thoughts or excuses are starting to cloud your way of thinking, try practicing these 3 steps to reaching your full potential. After all, you are a Goody Gal!
Tip #1: Remember, You’re a Badass!
When you start to feel down or stuck in a rut just take a moment to think on all of the reasons why you’re great. What have you accomplished in your life thus far? Take those positive thoughts and let them propel you into action to add to the list of badassery (yes, that’s a word)!
Tip #2: Set Small Goals
Rome wasn’t built in a day, or at least that’s what I’m told. It’s great to have large goals that make a significant impact on your life but you’ll need to take small steps to get there. Break things down into digestible pieces and start tackling one task at a time. Before you know it the accomplishments will start adding up.
Tip #3: Reward Yourself
Because, I mean, who doesn’t love a gift? If you have something that you’ve been wanting but it’s a little too grand to just pick up on your way home from work, use that as motivation. Reward yourself for hitting milestones and accomplishing your goals. You earned it!
