Did you set a weight loss or body composition goal for 2019?
Did you reach your goal, abandon ship part way through, or are you steadily continuing on your journey?
Wherever you stand today, we know that you want ultimate, lasting success. And the best way to get there is to take time for some self-reflection.
I don’t often recommend people spend too much time looking in the rear view mirror. There is nothing we can change about the past, so I like to focus on what we can control – the future.
However, when you are on a fitness or weight loss journey, it is necessary if you want to see improvement and have success or the long haul. It provides affirmation of where you are and where you want to go, despite the roadblocks you may have experienced along the way. That’s part of the journey – we all waiver from the road we desire to follow and sometimes need guidance to get moving back in the right direction.
The beauty of reflection lies is not judging ourselves. Good or bad, it’s all about the process of moving forward and learning along the way. No beating yourself up for taking two steps forward and two steps back.
So, what will self reflection allow you to do?
Set Clear Short Term and Long Term Goals
When we know where we have been and where we are going, we can set clear goals for next week, next year, and even ten years from now.
Give a Reality Check
Sometimes we are too hard on ourselves, or don’t realize we have strayed so far the path we chose to take. Be honest with yourself when you look back on your year!
Identify Your Biggest Struggles
Looking at the roadblocks that keep us from reaching our goals, or taking our life to the next level, allows us to come up with solutions before we reach these blocks again.
Keep Fear from Getting in Your Way
Fear of failure – or even fear of success – most often gets in the way of reaching our goals. When we honestly reflect, set goals, and anticipate roadblocks we can move forward more confidently.
Ultimately, each of things will increase your chances of success moving forward. As a health coach, I journey with many clients as they seek weight loss, fitness, and better health. Looking back and then “learning forward” is important to the process.
