“You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.” C.S. Lewis
I LOVE listening to friends, family and clients when they are discussing their goals and dreams. Once it’s out in the open it feels more real. It also helps motivate me!
These days it seems it’s almost taboo to discuss New Year's resolutions. Aren't New Year Resolutions just things you have been putting off for the whole year sometimes? I’m personally into goal setting every several months, but hey if you motivate yourself by waiting for a new year to start clean, more power to you!
You have every right to set a goal and act upon it, no matter when you do it. Goals are anything that matters to you, whether it is to change something in your life, your health, fitness or body. Do you prefer setting goals alone or with others? For some, setting goals with others can be extremely scary. The fear of failure is real.
Let’s be honest. Many don’t reach their goals. People start off full force, with the best intention, and then life gets in the way. They tucker out and eventually revert back to old habits, hence the New Year's Resolution.
Does that sound like you? If it does, what will you do differently this time?
We know for sure, life will get in the way of our goals. If you go after what you want with a road map that fits your current lifestyle, you’ll have less hurdles to jump through, and have a much higher chance of getting to the finish line. I know the feeling of failure. I’ve failed many times over the years. Instead of letting my failures define me, I get back up to reassess what went wrong and try a different approach. If my different approach doesn't work or it’s something out of my scope, I reach out to someone that knows exactly what to do.
So let's take a moment to look forward as many do at the beginning of a new year....
My goal is to make a much BIGGER impact in 2021. I plan to show even more people how to turn their dream fitness and health goals into reality! I’ll be starting this on the first day of 2021 with the Squat Challenge and then inviting more people in to Lauren’s Playground starting January 21st. In fact we will be kicking it off live, for those that would like to do them with me at 8a.m. Pacific time. Invite in here.
I am REALLY looking forward to seeing many of you the next 21 days! As we all know, it takes 21 days to build a habit that sticks, so this is why the Squat Challenge is this length and also why it has been extremely successful over the last 5 years!
So, there you have it. That’s my mission this year. I will be laser focused on showing people the magic of Lauren's Playground and how the kind of training we do in the Playground can achieve my (and your) goal.
I have many other little personal goals, but as a business owner and a fitness professional, this is the big one for 2021.
It's time to close out 2020 and hit 2021 with a BANG! I wish you all a prosperous New Year and can't wait to see you at the Squat Challenge!
Happy New Year my friends!
