How are your resolutions for 2022 going?
Don’t go away. This isn’t yet another grit your teeth platitude about New Year resolutions.
Think of what you want to achieve. Maybe a NY resolution, maybe a personal goal you have, or maybe even a target at work you need to meet.
Immerse yourself in what you want to achieve and notice how you feel. Notice what the self-talk in your head is saying. Notice if you are tensed up or relaxed.
Now… If you were going to hire somebody to achieve that goal, would you hire yourself as you are right now?
If the answer is yes, then go for it tiger!
If the answer is no, because you wouldn’t hire someone with that kind of attitude towards the goal, or is scared of the goal, or scared of trying, or knows they have failed at this before and expects to fail again or… You get the idea.
What needs to change within you in order for you to become the person you would definitely hire to achieve the goal?
Now think of something else you want, and do the same thought experiment again.
What are you learning about yourself in relation to the goals you want?
My best wishes, Paul
