Hey! It’s Joe Coach Martino and I just realized something that blew my mind: we are almost ¼ of the way through this year already. I can hardly believe it!
This is the perfect time to check in on your 2021 goals, get them back on track, and make any changes you need to turn them into reality.
How are you doing on your goals? If you’re struggling or they are a distant memory, I have 6 solid tips for you in this blog. If you’re on-track, these tips will help supercharge your efforts.
Go on a positivity diet
Read inspirational books, watch motivational videos, and interact with people who motivate you forward toward your goals — which can include curating your social media feed with people who make you feel more positive about life. Hide or unfollow accounts which plant seeds of fear and negativity.
One of my favourite ways to give myself positive inspiration is by heading over to YouTube and watching motivational videos.
Surround yourself with like-minded people
Make sure the people who you spend time with are supportive and value your personal goals.
During the pandemic it can be more difficult to do but this can even be through Facebook groups or online forums, or become part of The Motion Room Facebook community!
You can also join my Facebook community. Plugging into a community and feeling connected and supported is a huge advantage in getting back on-track and staying accountable.
If you are coming out of a slump or layoff, thank it
This one sounds counterintuitive, but the slump likely gave you two important pieces of info:
First, it might have highlighted something that wasn’t working for you. Why did the slump happen in the first place? Now you know what led to it – you have powerful data that can help you change things up!
Secondly, that slump also helped you realize how important it actually is to you to stay on-track, which can add real fuel to your fire.
Raise your energy level
This applies to both your mind and your body. I’m talking about simple actions like going for a walk, getting some fresh air, reading some inspiring quotes, or listening to a motivational audio.
The idea is to bring some fresh and positive energy into your day, every day! Being intentional about this and seeking out that positive energy can be a game-changer.
Shake up your routine
Most of us like a little novelty in our lives – doing the same old, same old all the time doesn’t feel super exciting. It can make you feel like you’re in a rut.
If this sounds like you, try something new! This new thing doesn’t have to be elaborate. It can be something simple like jogging between every other telephone pole during your walk, or buying an exotic fresh fruit at the grocery store. Just do something a little different, because it can reignite the fun factor.
Consider hiring a coach
There’s nothing like getting a fresh perspective to help you refine, refocus, and refuel your motivation toward your goal!
A coach can save you valuable time and effort, an help you find options when roadblocks inevitably pop up along the way. This can be huge.
If you are looking for a coach, let’s talk to see if we might be a good match for each other. Pick a time here convenient for you in my schedule.
Track your progress! One of my favorite things is to give myself a checkmark on my calendar every time I work out. I love seeing those checkmarks add up over time!
I hope these tips help get you psyched to double down on your 2021 goals. There’s still plenty of time to make them a reality
Talk to you again soon!
