How to push yourself when you REALLY don't want to...Oct 29, 2023
Have you ever been faced with knowing you need to push yourself but for some reason you just can't get over the proverbial hump?
Last night we got home at 8pm from two days out being of town and 4 hours on the road driving home. It was a couple fun days of college tours and the state cross country meet.
As we drove up to the house, what I really wanted to do when we got unloaded was go lay in bed and read a book. That seemed like the rewarding thing to do after a long trip, right?
But lurking in the back of my mind was the goal I have been working toward for myself and I hear myself say, "DON'T MISS A WORKOUT, LISA."
What happened next should spark some curiosity for you.
Here were my automatic thoughts....
It won't matter if you miss one.
You did really good this week already.
It's really late, the trainer will understand.
It won't make a difference anyway.
I took a pause and then my higher brain took over and I asked myself, "WHAT am I trying to achieve and WHO do I need to be to reach that level of achievement."
Here was my intentional dialogue...
What do I really want most.
What kind of person am I.
What did I commit to myself that I would do in this situation.
Here's what I decided.
I'm the kind of person who works out at 9pm with as much or more effort as when I work out at 8am.
I'm the kind of person who does things that other people don't do so I can get the results other people don't get.
I'm the kind of person who knows what I want and is willing to be uncomfortable to get it.
Pushing yourself requires you to envision who you are as that future self and then understand how that future self would act and think.
Now it doesn't become a PUSH or a hurdle. It has become a DECISION to step into the future you and acting the way you see yourself becoming.
So, what do you want?
Are you ready to learn how to get it?
We had two amazing coaching conversations at Ask A Coach last week on similar topics pushing these agents outside the bounds of their automatic thoughts. Listen in to hear....
What kind of lead gen can I do to get more clients?
How this agent converted a FSBO this week after being coached last week!
Life is meant to be experienced. Let's make that experience more enjoyable.
Wishing you all the best this week.
