DO: Set a far reaching goal
To tell you the truth, I missed a few days of my “5 Sun Salutations a day for 30 days” challenge. Each time I missed a day, I ended up getting really down on myself. I felt like it was just one little goal that I couldn’t accomplish.
Eventually, I realized that I needed to let up on myself. It’s not the only goal I have set right now, I have a lot – probably too many. I sat back and realized that I’ve still made improvements. I’m now doing yoga more than twice as often as I used to, and I feel the results.
The lesson I’ve learned is this: You’re human – sometimes you’ll set goals and fail in carrying them out completely. What matters is that you set a goal and that you tried. At the very least you’ll wind up some place in between where you were before, and what you set out to do. You can’t accomplish every grand goal immediately. What you can do, is at least set them and begin to work toward what you want instead of sitting there static.
So figure out something grand,amazing,far-reaching that you want and set a goal. Work on all of the things you want to work on, but don’t expect to see completion on all of them right away.You may not accomplish goals the first time around, but you’ll be much closer for even trying.
