Why do you think it is so easy to loose sight of the bigger picture? Is it because of the generally lengthy time frame most goals require to achieve? Is it the amazing array of choices that pulls us in all sorts of directions that distracts us?
Remaining focused requires a lot of determination – finding a way that works specifically for you is the key. Whether it is a daily reminder that pops up on your phone, or a post it note next to your bathroom mirror. I think the frequency of the reminder is the key.
I have just purchased an annual pass at Bikram Newtown studio and have set myself a goal of a certain # of classes for the year!
I am a “list” person and like to have something in front of me as a reminder therefore I have designed a daily 12 month calendar which I have stuck to our living wall and each time I attend a class I stick up a little “namaste” sticker on the day!
Whatever your goal in life, it seems to be the 1% efforts we make that really make the difference longer term.
Never forget that your mind is only as strong as you make it. Without control of your mind you can do nothing, it is our biggest challenge. It can be your worst enemy as it constantly feeds on your fears and negative habitats.
By regularly practicing Bikram I am developing self control, determination, concentration and patience, which all help in breaking down all the powerful distractions.
Also help your mind by making healthy eating choices as well. Everything in moderation, no silly diets, will help to get balance in your life, but that’s a whole another blog!
