WALK THROUGH THE FIRE
I wanted to post this January 1st, but when I upgraded to windows 10 there were some issues.
I was thinking about the new year, where I was at in my life and where I wanted to go for 2016. I was pondering on goal setting and more important taking actions. I was looking at the taking action part of goal setting. Nothing gets done unless we take action. I started looking at what stops us from taking action.
What came to me was, to accomplish any big goal in life, whether it is loosing weight, writing a book, starting a new career, getting your degree, whatever, any big changes in life is like walking through fire. It may seem easy at first, but a time comes when you really have to push yourself to get it done, and accomplish the goal. It gets difficult and you have to push through it. You must walk through the fire to get to the other side. I wanted to remind myself for the new year to “Walk through the fire”, in other words to do what it takes to get my goals completed. I love this saying. It inspires me to complete what I started and do what it takes to get things done.
I thought of tattooing this to my wrist so I would always be reminded that we must walk through the fire to get to the other side, the other side being goal completion. Then I thought, why not make a bracelet with this saying on it…and that is how my bracelet idea happened.
If you would like to have a bracelet to inspire you to complete your goals and walk through the fire, so to speak, I am giving away free bracelets while supplies last. I would love to share these bracelets with you. It does help to wear it to remind yourself to do what is takes to accomplish your goals!
A psychologist recently told me that one of the reasons it is so difficult to change is because we have to forge new pathways in our brains and this it not easy. Our brains always want to go back to status quo. This is why it is so hard to change IE: complete our new years resolutions! Also, he said it takes more than 21 days to make a habit. His colleague reported it may take up to 100 days to form new habits. So what does this mean to us? When we want to make new habits we have to work at it until it becomes a habit and make it a life long change.
We have to be pioneers…forging new pathways in our brains to new and better lands!
Yes, it does get easier as you press on and build those new brain pathways!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
