'This might sound easy. You might think, “Well, my goal is to take better care of my diabetes.” I’m asking you to dig much deeper. Most goal statements we create for ourselves sound like tasks or obligations. Like chores your doctor asked you to do. They are anything but inspiring.
I certainly can’t create your goal statement for you, because every word in that concise, clear phrase needs to come from the most vulnerable and honest part of who you are. It should reflect the part of you that truly believes you are capable of achieving this goal, and the part of you that can see yourself succeeding. If you haven’t discovered that part of yourself yet, then it’s time to start digging! It’s in there.
Create your statement and write it down. Whether it’s carefully printed on a sticky note, or designed beautifully and framed on your kitchen wall, just write it down somewhere and be sure to look at it regularly.
I want __________________.
I will ___________________.
I am ___________________.
And if you have a minute or two, take a seat, take a deep breath, close your eyes, and envision yourself making the small steps and small changes that lead to the bigger steps and bigger changes that lead to your success. One step at a time.'
[AS: A really positive, inspiring post. Thank you, Ginger.]
