I signed up for this marathon, and I have questioned my decision...
That's right...full disclosure. The doubt and wavering confidence typically shows up right before a run. I'm about to change or lace up my shoes and I wonder, why am I doing this again?
Some days I'm able to offer myself the reassurance and validation that I chose to do this again because consistent running helps me to stay focused, intentional, grounded and strong.
But what happens when the results are not being reaped? When the focus is a bit blurry, the groundedness feels unsteady and the strength feels weak?
How do you stay committed to the choice you made when you're not seeing the results that prompted the choice?
This is where I have found myself standing.
And what I always find and end up coming back to is: it's not about the goal, it's about the habits you create on your way to the goal.
I stay committed because I know one bicep curl doesn't make you a body builder one board doesn't build a house, one mistake doesn't make you a failure and one bad moment doesn't ruin your day.
So my question for you is, how do you stay committed to the choice you made when you're not seeing the results that prompted the choice?
Can you commit just a little bit more of yourself to the decision you made knowing that, in time, the results will be reaped?
