The way you do one thing is the way you do anything. That’s what my coach tells me.
This hit me like a whiff of really strong perfume. Eyes opened!
You see, I have always done pretty well with my weight, my exercise, my finances and even my time – I could coast just above average. A solid B+/A-.
This week, I started thinking. I ignore my alarm. I hit the snooze button. I choose to do one more thing in the ten minutes I “think” I have which creates me being late.
And if what my coach says is true, I lack commitment to my schedule, which means I also don’t commit to my financial budget or my food plan.
Ugh. I had a bad feeling this was legit.
Yep, I “cheat” here and there with my budget and food too, and since I know how to just do enough, I fluctuate 2-4 lbs and never bounce checks.
I am technically late to things, but rarely am late to where I miss the beginning of things which don’t really “count”. “No harm done”.
Even when I was in college, I rarely studied and got a solid A-. In high school, I rarely studied, and I was top 15%, not top 5%.
Yep, this is legit.
I realize I had this thought ‘Why push myself and go ALL IN?’ I was coasting very well with little commitment and little effort.
And then I thought – What if I went ALL IN? What if I committed to doing it 100%? What would my results look like? What would I create for myself? Who would I become?
WhenI realized this, my mind WAS BLOWN. I have been living my life coasting. From teen to 40. Not really committing to much and also not really shining. I’ve been holding myself back.
So I immediately decided my schedule was where I could really transform. Schedule my day, honor my commitments, show up for myself and others. And look out for who I am becoming!
Finishing up week one and have already blown my mind. I was EARLY to lunch with a friend. I did EVERYTHING on my schedule, down to the exact podcast I wrote I’d listen to.
What about you? What if you showed up 100% in your life even if it was just ONE thing? You’d blow your mind, wouldn’t you?
Share this with your teen. Challenge them to go ALL IN in just one thing.
Why are they holding themselves back at all? Why did they pick the goal they picked? Who do they want to become as they do it? What do they want to create by going ALL IN? What do they see as the obstacles and challenges? How can they plan to overcome these?
They can start now. So can you.
Y’all. Let’s GO ALL IN. I’m going with you!
