So folks we’ve made it to February 2011! I constantly have to remind myself “don’t let those goals you set in January get placed on the back burner…it’s only February!” Let’s be real, I was saying this same exact line last month, except I replaced February with “it’s only the 2nd week in January!”Around the new year expectations & hopes are high. We are motivated to set goals, intentions, & resolutions. We are eager to replace old habits with new ones. We are determined that THIS. year. is. OUR. year…. Soooo how is it possible that within 31 days, that enthusiasm has worn off ? Welcome challenges of the real world. I find myself up against important deadlines & endless to-do lists. Suddenly, old and familiar patterns become more appealing….hitting the snooze button instead of waking up for yoga. Grabbing food on the go instead of taking the time to prepare it myself. Accumulating at least an hour on facebook throughout the day instead of spending that hour at the gym. So on & so forth.
Well…I welcome February with open arms because I consider it a fresh start and a good time to re-group & re-focus my intention. So here we go…time to dust the cobwebs off the old goal sheet….if you didn’t set goals for 2011, it’s not too late to start!! Download the template: aryoga135goalsettingsheet!
I invite you to take on PART II of the goal setting challenge (click here to review part I)….
Go through each goal that was set this year & do 2 things…
- focus on the positive :)
- brainstorm ways to change what’s not working
