Set Up for Failure


Do you make sure you can’t win? I was discussing this with a client today.

We sometimes think only huge activities can move our goals forward, but they are so difficult to achieve we will feel like failures if we don’t make it.

But, the small actions don’t seem like enough. Whoppee if we succeed. It was because it wasn’t worth anything.

Do you see how this is setting ourselves up for failure?

If you feel you need to spend an hour in the gym every day to achieve your health goal and miss a day, you feel awful. But, those 6 glasses of water you drank achieving your tiny goal, didn’t seem to do anything. So even though you succeeded you feel like a failure.

I think it is time to celebrate all the little successes that will let us reach our bigger goal.
