6 WAYS YOU’RE MAKING IT HARDER TO REACH YOUR GOALS

6 Ways You’re Making it Harder to Reach Your Goals

1. Aiming too high, too soon. This is a recipe for failure and frustration.

Goals like shedding 20 pounds in a few weeks… or running a marathon within a couple of months can be daunting and discouraging. Instead, set smaller, realistic targets to fuel your long-term progress. If this is an area you struggle with, a coach can help.

2. Comparing yourself to others. It’s okay to draw inspiration from others but don’t let their progress define your worth. 

Plus, you never know behind-the-scenes of what it REALLY took them to get there. Your journey is unique, so own it and celebrate your progress.

3. Over-restricting your diet. Eliminating foods (and food groups), skipping meals, or obsessing over the scale is not only discouraging… but it can lead to cravings, fatigue, and a serious lack of motivation. 

Aim for a balanced, enjoyable lifestyle that supports your health and well-being.

4. Navigating without a plan. Having a proven game plan to take you from where you are NOW to where you want to be will save you time and effort. Otherwise, you’re relying on guesswork to reach your goal. 

5. Short-term vision. Being fit for a vacation or an event is great… but staying in shape is even better. Consider your long-term health and avoid the exhausting cycle of temporary fitness.

6. Isolating yourself. Everyone needs support. A strong support network or a great coach can hold you accountable and help you reach your goals even faster. 

Having someone in your corner cheering you on – and helping you find the inner strength to step out of your comfort zone – is invaluable!
