Yesterday morning, I was due to go to the gym and I came up with probably 101 reasons why hitting the snooze button and going back to sleep would be a better option. Even though, the night before, I had gotten my gym clothes, sneakers and gear ready to go.
Has that ever happened to you?
However, with The Money Zone Event less than a month away, I decided to get my butt in gear and head over to workout.
Here are some of the things I was telling myself initially:
- It won’t make that big of a difference if I miss one time
- It will take too long
- Who knows if this will work
- It could be a big waste of time
- There’s other things I’d rather do
- I’m too comfy, cozy right now
- I’m too tired
- It doesn’t seem like fun
- I just can’t
If you’ve heard me speak before, you know I talk about the power of your mindset. It can stop you dead in your tracks no matter how much you’ve planned to do something.
Here’s what I said, to help shift me into action
- This one time could be the breakthrough
- Compared to what?
- What if it does work?
- It could be fun
- I can do those other things later
- I can be comfy, cozy again
- Time to wakeup
- I can!
Then, here’s what I asked myself:
- What do I really, really want?
The answer was I want to feel and look good while I’m on stage at my Money Zone Event.
The next question was:
- Will going to the gym get me closer to the goal?
The answer was “yes”.
So, the next time you’re stalling, procrastinating, or debating about taking action. Don’t judge or be critical of yourself. Instead, come from a place of curiosity.
As my BRILLIANCE Coaching Program members discovered, sometimes, you only need to ask yourself one question.
I ask myself, “will this get me closer to where I want to be?”. Sometimes, one question is all you need.
What’s the one question you can ask yourself to keep you moving forward?
