Hello everyone and thank you for joining me!
I have to acknowledge right off the bat that Women Taking the Lead’s 2nd Anniversary came and went and I didn’t do anything to acknowledge it publicly.
Even though I had started to make plans and got some suggestions from The Accomplished Community and my team, last week and the weekend turned out to be incredibly hectic and March 25th came and went and not a peep from me.
So let’s pretend I’m hosting a celebration to mark this achievement. If you were wondering what to bring as a gift I would say, just share this podcast with a woman in your life who you know would enjoy and get value from it. Let’s include her in this celebration.
And what I’m giving away as party favors is a 20 minute call with me. This is an opportunity for us to chat and you can ask any questions you like. Shoot me an email at Jodi@womentakingthelead.com. Put “Party favor” as the subject line and I’ll send you the link to get on my calendar. I can’t wait to chat with you!
Let’s make this an amazing celebration marking 2 years of Women Taking the Lead.
Well, I got a GREAT reaction to the last 100% Jodi episode. That episode was all about getting started on a big goal so I want to continue along this path.
Now that you have in your tool box a trick to break down an overwhelming goal into manageable baby steps I want to talk about keeping up momentum.
We’ve all experienced this before. We get a vision of what could be, what we want to achieve. We get emotionally involved and can begin feeling what it would feel like to achieve that goal. We become excited by the prospect and decide to go for it.
And then the work toward the goal begins. We start with a lot of enthusiasm and that gets us through any initial preparation or adjustments we need to make to our schedule. We start and within a matter of time – it could be days or weeks – we notice life is throwing us some major curve balls.
Something unexpected always pops up when you have a big goal.
It may then feel like it is taking a force of will to stay committed to the goal. Depending on your mental preparation or the support system you have around you, you may pull through or you may wind up feeling defeated.
This is why many people give up before they’ve reached their goal. They were not mentally, physically, emotionally or spiritually prepared to deal with the obstacles that would come at them.
We have been hearing a lot about the need to pay attention to the food we eat. Our physical health is largely determined by the foods and drinks we put into our bodies and the products we put in our hair and on our skin.
If you are avoiding processed foods, consuming whole foods in moderation that are organic and toxin-free, and you make a point to get in physical activities that raise your heart rate and cause you to break a sweat, you are fortifying yourself against most obstacles that would impact your physical health. You will be less likely to get sidelined by whatever illness is going around and taking down those around you.
However, what we don’t think about are the things we consume every day that are impacting our mental, emotional and spiritual wellbeing. And even if your big goal is something like a triathlon, a marathon or a Spartan, it takes more mental and emotional endurance than physical endurance to cross the finish line.
