So often we look at success as the overall goal achieved, such as losing 20kg, lifting a certain weight, wearing a particular sized clothing or completing a challenge that we set.
However, what if we were to reframe our thoughts around success. So many people at times feel like they fail at their goals as they focus on the outcome rather than the steps to get there.
In my opinion each and every time a person chooses a healthier choice over a not so healthier choice, that is success! After all, it is the individual choices that we accomplish each day that leads us the elation of achieving our overall goal.
We place so much emphasis on the outcome, we often forget to acknowledge each little successful stepping stone along the way.
So, in the future, congratulate yourself for each and every health choice you make.
If you chose water over soft drink, well done
Went for a walk rather than watching TV… success
Got an extra rep in at the gym, fantastic
Managed to get out of the servo and not grabbed a chocolate, great success
Chose to view the positive of a situation over the negative, super impressive.
Managed and earlier night and had adequate sleep.. yay
Each and everyday, we make choices that impact our future and we should be proud of each choice we make that enhances our wellbeing. Obviously we aren’t all perfect and slip up at times, but gauge that against how many positive choices you have made and decide to focus on what is best for your health and your future. Don’t give up and ruin all your hard work by one or two bad choices. Focus on how far you have come and keep choosing to build a future you deserve to be enjoying and living life to the fullest.
