Ever notice how we keep falling into the same patterns? We do OK for a while and then we retreat. How do we break the cycle? Why do we slip?
This is something I am struggling with this weekend. If you remember my breakthrough matrix, it had two things to look at - focus and action. To move forward with velocity, we need to be focused like a laser beam and unstoppable.
When it comes to my exercise plan, I have been neither focused nor in much action for two weeks.
I won't bore you with the usual excuses.
This is a pattern for me. The good news is that it has only been two weeks and I can't do too much damage in that time as long as I get back on track NOW.
Noticing the pattern and recommitting to focus and action is the first important step. I need to break the cycle. And for me, a key to getting back on track is changing my self talk. Belief - action - result. When I fall back into the old pattern I notice that the conversations I am having with myself are pretty wimpy and unhelpful.
The last three months have been great. It is time for me to become more resolute - this shall be. The power of that belief is amazing.
Do you have patterns that draw you in like the Enterprise stuck in a tractor beam? Over the next few posts, I will share some of the breakthrough catalysts and inhibitors that I will be re-exploring to get my progress moving forward again.
