How are you doing on your New Year 2018 goals? I hope you are all fairing well. I am quite certain that you are either smashing those goals or you are failing. Psst… Failing is just a step that we must take to finding a better route to smash those goals.
In one of my first posts this year What are your goals for 2018? I named some goals for myself. They were:
- Become a better person
- Find new things to take me out of my comfort zone
I am not really sure what the heck I was thinking for the first. How do I track that? How can I ensure that I am reaching that goal? What I can tell you is that I am working very hard on current projects, which will invariably produce better outcomes. So, that is something. The second goal is definitely being met. I am pushing myself so far out of my zone. I have been revealing very personal things on my website and in my blogs. I am normally pretty contained, but this has been pushing me. I have shared some of my poetry, most recently in Life: You Choose. I just can not believe I am sharing so much stuff with everyone. That is crazy for me. Yep…. definitely out of my comfort zone.
Though I did not name becoming healthier, in my goal list, I have been working very hard on improving my health. I have lost 15 pounds and am holding. I have increased my activity to 3-5 times a week, for at least 45 minutes a session. I am really trying to make better food choices. (Oh my god… this is the worst… I absolutely love sweets and this is literally ripping my heart out).
So, now you know that sugar is my kryptonite.
Don’t take failure as defeat. Failure is a step towards success.
