The Summer Olympics in Rio has brought us countless inspiring stories. While we may not be Olympic athletes, we can certainly “go for the gold” in our own lives and athletic endeavors. For help, we turn to Robin Harakal Janis, a Certified Life Coach and Wellness Empowerment Mentor. Janis says as simple as it sounds, the first step is truly deciding what you want and to write it down. “Make a list and get specific.”
Next, Janis says to “ask yourself what steps you need to take to bring about what you want?” Revisit your list and answers daily to stay on track.
Here’s a big one. Be honest. “Check in with yourself and notice if your actions are congruent with what you say you want,” Janis says. “If not, simply notice what you are ‘committing to at the moment’. Will this action take you towards your goal or away from it? What are you willing to change now?”
Janis says the key to following through with your goals is simple: “DECIDE. Change is about decision. It’s about keeping your head up, eyes forward, and your thoughts only on the change you WANT…not on what you don’t want.”
