Today I’m going to share the #1 way to make sure that you always win and always accomplish your goals, especially when it comes to weight loss and athletic performance. Ready?

The surefire way to win at anything you do is to NOT QUIT.

Now, this is often easier said than done, but I can tell you that anyone in your life that enjoys success has gotten to that point because they push through the hard times in order to finish the race.

The Big Picture is Helpful, But…

When you set out to accomplish a goal, one of the most important ingredients for success is to be able to see the big picture. What would it feel like to finish that 5K race? How awesome would it be to show up to the family reunion in a size 8 dress?

But sometimes if we get too focused on the overall enormity of the task, it feels too big and we want to quit.

Honestly, as I work to build my company, NourishLiftGrow, I have times when I just sit in my office and stare into space because I am so overwhelmed. In my mind, I have so many things I want to put out into the world, to make an impact on as many people as possible – creates website, have various online programs, blogging, emails, being invited to speak, run retreats, maybe write a book, etc., etc. and it’s just all so much that it stops me in my tracks. There are days I feel I will never get there. But then I remember….Rome was not built in day! It takes time. And almost always, more time than we think.

So, what can you do when you feel so overwhelmed by your goal that you are paralyzed?

Break it Down and Make a Plan

Let’s think of it this way: if you were going to drive from your house to New York, you wouldn’t just get in your car and start driving, would you? Of course not! You might end up in Arkansas with no water and no gas in the middle of nowhere!

You would make a plan. You would figure out how many days it would take, plan which cities you would stop in each night, and hopefully take some healthy snacks along so you don’t blow through the McDonald’s drive-thru in the middle of the night.

When you feel like you want to quit, it’s time to break down your goal into smaller pieces. And when I say small, I mean really small. It could be that the only thing you need to do today is hop in the car and buy some healthy groceries. That’s it. Now, does that feel manageable?

I love this quote from Tony Robbins, “Most people overestimate what they can do in a day, and underestimate what they can do in a decade.”

Don’t be afraid to make your baby steps truly tiny.

Remember Your ‘Why’

When your goal feels overwhelming and quit-worthy, take a look at your why. Why did you set that goal in the first place? Why did you decide to lose 10 pounds?

In those moments that feel insurmountable, recall your dream of feeling confident at your high school reunion or the tears of joy you will have as you cross the finish line of your first marathon.

Remember, small consistent action and will get you to the goal every single time!

You Got This!
