Not Sure You Can Do It? Look At What You've Already Accomplished

At the start of a new year, we tend to make new goals. And around this time, we are ready to give up or we’ve already given up.


My big goal this year is to release some unwanted extra pounds. It’s hard, and it’s slow, and it’s cold outside and I just want to curl up and tuck into some brownies.

What’s worse is that I’ve been focusing on how hard it is. That’s been my dominant thought.


Until I had a conversation with a colleague who is struggling with things I have already resolved. That reminded me of all I have already accomplished. Here are just a few:


·       I raised two kids to become productive, high-functioning happy adults

·       I paid off my mortgage and my kids’ education

·       I built a career as a leadership facilitator at a Fortune 100 company

·       I have travelled all over the world and met so many wonderful people

·       I am a strong, vibrant, healthy woman

·       I am financially prepared to retire AND I still love my job, so I don’t have to retire

·       I have a loving family and community of friends.

 So, if I can create all those successes, I can surely make and sustain the lifestyles changes necessary to get to a weight that feels right for me.


I have done hard things, I am doing hard things, I will keep doing hard things.


Perhaps I should start by not calling them hard things; it’s really just the business of life.


Try this ONE thing

You have already accomplished much. You will continue to conquer new things. Why not start by making a list of your successes; the things you once worried about but have now resolved.



Hey! Are you already successful and accomplished? Do you have many things to appreciate about your life right now? Are you always open to learning more and growing yourself?

Despite all your successes, do you sometimes doubt yourself? Do you hesitate to go after what you really want in life?

Or maybe you dismiss your past successes, putting them down to luck, and don’t really see how extraordinary you really are?

If this sounds like you, you and I should have a conversation. Drop me a line here,, and let’s talk!
