Sent to us from one of our Arenal Fitness family members. Thought it would be nice to share with everyone:
You’re never going to get “there”. You’re never going to get it ALL done. You’re never going to reach the very top! There is no final destination!
Are you sure if you just lost that last ten pounds that your whole existence would be smooth-sailing from that day on?
Do you believe if only you could break your time on the next marathon you’d be completely satisfied as a runner?
No matter what you think right now, when you reach that goal, you’re going to want more. It’s the nature of being human.
No matter what you achieve, or what you receive, you naturally look to the next goal, the next horizon, the next toy, or the next tool to make your life even better.
This is not necessarily a bad thing. It just IS. But it’s helpful to know that you’re not going to get it all done. The goals you set will always be stepping stones to the next thing. There is no end.
Goals are important. They give you a target and direct your mind to find the path. Every day you work toward a goal, you get that much closer. And when you get there, rejoice! Just know that as soon as your attention wavers, you’ll be looking at the next one. What goals do you have for today? For this week? For this year? Write them down and check them off when you reach them. Then add new ones! You’ll be surprised how often you do actually reach your goals!]]>
