Here is how our current society thinks:
I’m here, but I want to be there- and WHEN I get to there, THEN I will finally be happy. But if I don’t get THERE than I have failed!
We base on happiness on the fulfillment of the goal, instead of enjoying the process. The truth is, that progress is the prize. We need to start investing in the process and not just the outcome of our goals.
The outcome is out of our control, but the actions are what change and move us towards reaching our goals and enjoying a life full of happiness.
I have three examples of rephrasing your self-talk to help you reach your goals this year!
I love a new challenge!
I love trying new things and learning new things!
By doing this I’m sure to increase my health, wealth, (fill in the blank) knowledge
What if I fail?
What if people laugh at me?
What will others think if I don’t complete this goal?
