As a sport psychology consultant, I get to hear the many goals that athletes come up with for themselves. I find myself getting perplexed by their approaches to what, by their own admission, is what they love most.
If I or even if they were the object of this type of affection they would have to come to the conclusion that the sender of this affection wasn’t affectionate at all. (That’s if we are honest).
When you love or want something don’t you make steps to grow closer to the thing? And if you really want it…daily?
It’s not about setting goals, because you already “know what you want”(supposedly). It’s either about your lack of honesty about what you want or you not understanding how to motivate yourself daily with what you “want most”.
If you are easily distracted from taking steps towards what you want, then what you want may not be what you want or your bad habits are getting in the way. If it is your habits then you have a decision to make.
You didn’t sign up to fight your habits…you just want to go towards your goal, right??? Your goal sound so great when you talk about it! But when you have to practicably apply yourself to go forward, you will always bump into your ill-ordered habits.
And the first bad habit, for the type of athlete I am writing about, usually is procrastination.
You can’t remain in an instant gratification mindset if you are moving toward your goals. you have to be willing to set on piece down at a time knowing that those pieces are getting you closer.
If you liked someone, one conversation does not make you know that person intimately. It’s the small conversations here and there that gets you closer to a more intimate relationship.
What have you said that you want most? What are you doing about it?
