It's about this time each year that some people start slipping away from the goals they made. The focus has become fuzzy, and other things have come along to distract them from visualizing their goals clearly. The gym where they signed up and vowed to go work out five days a week? Well, they've been busy, the weather's been bad, and they haven't been there in a while. The Realtor who was going to devote a portion of every day to prospecting? Well, life's been crazy lately and it hasn't worked out that way, but really, they plan to get back to it…soon.
That good old comfort zone has claimed another one. But there's still time to get back in the game, to refocus on the goals, and get on with reaching them.
I'm lucky that I live where there's great weather, so I don't have that excuse for one of my goals this year. I'm playing golf at least once or twice a week with people MUCH better then me. I love the competition; it makes me want to be and do better. Playing with golfers who make me stretch also creates the motivation to go out and hit balls and practice, so the next time I'm out with them, I can be better. And it's working – I can see and feel the difference, and my score shows it.
So you've set your goals. You know where you want to be and how to get there. Now it's time to re-focus on your goals and believe you can achieve them; after all, if some did it before, so can you.
It sounds simple – do the actions that align with your goals and you'll reach your objective. We all know it's not always easy, though, as life is filled with distractions. One thing that helps many people is to ask for and get support from someone who will help you but also keep you accountable. If you agree to walk every day with a friend you're less likely to skip that day when the weather isn't perfect. When you make a pact to change how you eat, checking in with someone who cares about you and your health will help keep you on track. And when you commit to playing The Real Estate Game, it's great if you have someone to support you and celebrate with as you go through the month.
"It is never too late to be what you might have been." The author George Eliot said that, and I absolutely agree. Every moment is an opportunity to change, to re-focus, and to get back in the game. My games are golf and real estate – what are yours?
