What happens when you get there?
I sometimes to refer to the process and the journey. I will elaborate on my meaning on these two words. What I mean by the process is the action we need to take daily to achieve our goals. Then the journey is the time it takes you to get from point A to B (I have mentioned this before). We are always going through the process and the journey. It just happens to be different for all of us. We all have different goals and aspirations. Some people don’t want for much or think about making goals to achieve. Hence why the process and the journey is different for everyone.
You need to find a process that works for you. The things you do on a daily, weekly and monthly basis to keep yourself on track with that you want. It will change from time to time as you discover new things. If they work you keep them in and if they don’t you try something else. It needs to be sustainable, hence why it needs to be subject to change. This will continue to evolve as you do and that’s ok.
Then there is the journey towards point B. What if you achieve point B. Then what? What if you never achieve point B. Then what? That’s the thing, when you do reach point B you just create a new point B and continue forward on the journey by following the process. The same goes for if you don’t get there. You will just keep moving forward trying to get there by trying different things. We have to realise we aren’t going to wake up one day having reached our goals and then that’s us done.
What got you to that point isn’t going to get you to the next point. We need to see what worked and what didn’t. Then we can make changes based on what we discovered. This doesn’t have to be anything big. It can be something like ‘I have noticed my commitment to the gym hasn’t be as good as it was as I am working late more and more. I will need to get up earlier and go to the gym in the morning instead’. Whatever you need to do to make it work and still fit into your lifestyle then do it.
Enjoy the process of trying to get better, keep showing up and doing the work. One day you will wake up and be a lot further down the path to what you would be if you had just threw in the towel and gave up on being a better version of yourself. It doesn’t happen overnight but it will happen.
It all comes down to you and only you.
