I had such a great time hiking in Arizona today after an amazing weekend!
My heart is so full & I’m ready to go into my improvement season with new goals and a new focus!
I absolutely crushed this entire season and accomplished my goals physically and mentally! Even ones I didn’t know I had...all while staying on top of my growing business, podcast production, & all the craziness this year brought!
When I finish a show I always journal with reflections and then set new standards for the upcoming season.
This guides my expectations for myself and gives me something to hold myself to.
It’s important to treat each season as it’s own entity to remove pressure of the past season, embrace new demands of the upcoming phase, & release the expectations you’ve been committing to for months now.
It’s even more important that these new standards are YOURS & based on your needs so you can truly have the most fulfilling & empowering journey.
If you treated every improvement season like a prep then you wouldn’t get very far—it would be like expecting a corgi to run like a greyhound; totally unfair!
But if you can keep your values, standards, big picture vision, & ideal self in every season and have actions, behaviors, beliefs, and habits that align with these things then you can be successful year round.
Most athletes make the mistake of hanging on to the expectations that come with a prep which can lead to a spiral of feeling like a failure in off season.
There’s a reason we must go through each so find your reason & embrace it!
Be specific in the actions & flexible in the approach.
Be ready for the unexpected, have scenarios mapped out & prepared for, & MAKE TAKING ACTION A PRIORITY FROM DAY 1.
No putting things off. Start when you say you will & it’ll be easier to trust yourself. If you say you’re going to do something—DO IT even if it looks different than you initially expected.
If you’re struggling to commit to your goals in a new season...start small to build that efficacy!
