It's the accumulation of small victories that lead to our greatest moments.
Welcome to 3rd Thursdays, a quick-read monthly newsletter for the 3rd Thursday of every month to help you make room for more abundance.
Change can be difficult especially in the Covid era. But it's also an incredible time for growth, to cultivate self-awareness and to gain clarity.
You have to want to make the change. You have to act and think differently. You have to want it so badly that every time you think about it you're inspired to take action.
As an endurance athlete who's crossed the finish line of multiple marathons and Ironman events, you have to start small. You must condition your mind and body over time to cross the finish line. Too much too soon can be a recipe for injury, discouragement, and burnout.
Training for a marathon is typically a 5 to 6 month process of building endurance and it begins with a 1 to 2 mile (easy) run. Every week you build up your mileage until you eventually reach the peak of your training to where you can run between 20 to 22 miles in one workout.
You'll have good days, bad days, and days where you don't feel like working out at all. But your commitment to crossing the finish line will be the reason why you get up to put in the miles anyway.
My challenge for you today is to envision where you want to be 6 months from now and write down small attainable tasks to get you there.
Make it manageable. What is one new task you've been procrastinating that will take less than an hour to complete? Do it, cross it off your list, and move on.
Write it down. Short-term, mid-term and long-term goals. Identify what you can accomplish tomorrow, this week and within the next 30 days. Refer to those respective tasks every day so they remain relevant and actionable.
Be consistent. Consistency is paramount to forming new habits and creating new results. We are what we repeatedly do so make sure what you're doing is getting you closer to your goal, even if it's one small step forward. DON'T PROCRASTINATE!
Finally, describe the feeling when that task has been accomplished and the space you've created in your mind to allow for more abundance. Find a reason to celebrate, even if it's a self affirmation, "Yep, I got this".
Thank you for your time. Stay tuned for the next issue of 3rd Thursdays on Thursday, June 18, 2020. If you're diggin' the vibe check out this story I learned about Creating Abundancefrom Joshua Trees.
