Get Off the Cliff and Live Your Life

Do you know how to dream big? Dreaming big gives us permission to expand our lives or start over. Give yourself the permission to let go and stretch. Think about the changes you want to make and make an action plan or resolutions. Resolutions are fun if they are kept, but not so fun when interest is lost.  

We all start off with the best of intentions and believe we can make change, then something happens; then we can’t keep our commitments. The main reason? It is too hard, takes too much effort and time or just plain laziness.

According to statistics, 80% of resolutions fail by February. Oh boy! I have heard of many excuses, some I have given myself. Instead making excuses, let this year be your LEAP year and do something out of your comfort zone.

Stop standing on a CLIFF and Take a Leap of Faith

What does CLIFF mean?

C – Can’t find the time (Too much trouble, effort, and too much money)
L – Lacking the motivation to keep you going (You have to know why do you want this to begin with)
I – Ignoring your commitment and falling into old patterns and habits (Laziness)
F – Frustration because you aren’t getting the instant gratification
F – Forgetting why you started. This is common. Know Your why you are doing this.

Changes require work. I have never seen changes come by luck alone. It takes dedication to make positive life changes happened. You can have success within time.

Make a Plan to Get Off the Cliff

Start with small steps. It is overwhelming when you are looking at the big picture and you don’t know how and where to start. Look at the view instead of standing on the CLIFF.
Make a plan and stick to it.
  • If you know you need to lose weight, then plan accordingly.
  • If you are working too hard, look for ways to balance your life. If you need to move stagnant energy, make time for movement.
  • If you need to find “me” time to be quiet with your thoughts, put it in your schedule.
  • If you know you are eating out too much or eating the wrong foods, then make a change.

Find Support or Accountability Buddy

Find a family, partner, or friends to support you on the journey. It can be a lot of fun make discoveries together but don’t let your goals become a competition. Support each other!

Keep Track of Your Progress

Online apps are great of keeping you on track or if you like to journal, make time to enter progress, thoughts, and emotions. Take time to check in internally. Don’t let one bad day be your excuse and all the sudden you are having a string of bad days.
