My coaching series today is about Goals.
I find some people fear them or they set non specific goals.
But.. clients who use more specific verbiage like this
“I want to get back down into my size 10 jeans.”
“I want to build my glutes.”
” I want to be able to get down on the floor and play with my kiddos.”
“I want to do 5 pull ups on my own.”
Overall do much better in their project than clients who say
“I want to lose weight.”
“I want to get healthy.”
That very broad goal isn’t very measurable.
It might feel overwhelming to have a long term goal. I think it is. But setting smaller goals is really effective. Our clients actually set new goals for each check in and we work on that specific one. We are looking for successes they can build on.
What I find is that usually.. the workouts aren’t the issue. The challenge might be consistency. Through our program we have no diet/program fails we have information. We have learning and tweaking.
If a client is able to pinpoint something that is tripping them up.. that’s what we work on!!! I’m actually excited when we figure something out!!!
How to work effectively:
Once you establish a short term goal..
1. Write it down!!
2. Tell someone!!
3. Create a plan.Decide how you can tweak your plan to make it work.
4. Wake up each day and say ‘”today I’m going to get my water in!!”
5. Keep going.
In my check ins with clients, I’m not looking for perfection. I’m looking for problem solving and tweaking. We don’t need to throw the baby out with the bath water and start over. We need to tweak what is holding us back from our goals so we can get some successes. Once you start having successess.. you can build on them.
