Be brave. Be audacious. Be crazy. Far too often we think “I could never do that/be that” and we basically fail before we begin. Set BIG, HUGE, terrifying goals, and then go for it! Don’t let yourself get in your own way. Tell yourself that it is perfectly okay to set extraordinary goals, and that is more than okay to accomplish those goals.
It’s good to set some intermediate goals. It helps give you a little boost every time you knock five seconds off your time, add ten pounds to your max lift, or hit a milestone on the scale. But having that big, scary goal is what is going to keep you going back for more. As you see it approaching, you get even more excited to see what you can accomplish.
Ernestine Shepherd got where she is now by trying to get into the Guinness Book of World Records. Joy Johnson was still running marathons at age 86. Conner Rensch lost half of her body weight and went on to participate in a bikini competition and took first place!
What crazy, audacious goal can I help you reach? Let me know in the comments!
