2019 is finally here, along with all the beauty, excitement, and challenges it has to offer. I’m SO looking forward to this year as an opportunity to help you stop using the past as an excuse to limit yourself. Instead, you’ll develop forward focus.
Having a strong focus on the future – rather than the past – can help you become the person you really want to be. You get to choose who you become, in 2019 and beyond.
A critical first step of developing forward focus? Stop story fondling + using your past as evidence that you can’t change. Don’t think, Oh, I’ve never done _____, so I won’t be able to this year.
You have to believe to achieve: take small steps to create the evidence that you can do whatever it is you want to do.
Quotes are one of my favorite ways to remember concepts like this + anchor my efforts. A key one for me this year comes from Carl Jung:
“I am not what happened to me, I get to choose who I become.”
Feel free to borrow that and use it as a mantra whenever you catch yourself rehashing the past and undermining your efforts.
And don’t miss this week’s episode – I share how I shifted my focus from the past to the future, how you can catch yourself if you’re focusing too much on your past, and the importance of reminding yourself all the time of what you want to achieve.
Do you want to take what you’ve learned from this episode to the next level? Check out my ENOUGH coaching program. Together, we combine the concepts and lessons from this show with coaching to go way beyond intellectual learning. You’ll learn to silence critical internal voices that tell you you’re not enough, integrate self-love into your everyday life, and build resilience against shame and other difficult experiences.
