Don’t let your goals get you down, let them left you up!
If you’re anything like me, you’ve experienced discouragement from goals that you have set but struggled to achieve. It is not always easy, especially when if there are many goals that you want to achieve. But, through reframing your goals, it can set you up for a more successful journey. A journey that considers that starting point, the finish line and the space in between that I like to refer to as the “journey.”
Check out my video below where I give a more detailed explanation about how to Reframe Your Goals Today:
I would consider the “journey” to be the hardest part but also the best part of any goal. It is where all the action actually happens. If you don’t believe me, take a moment to consider your favorite book, movie or play. Why do you love it? Is it just because the character succeeded or was it because they overcame so much adversity along the way?
Or is it because they were the underdog and no one expected them to succeed. Or was it because so many external forces effected their life in a negative way and still they found a way to overcome? Whatever the reason, I think we love these types of stories because we can see ourselves in the story. We relate to the character’s struggles and we too want to accomplish something great.
Below, you can find a little, simple poem I wrote about “reframing.”
by EE Winkler
She said, “my life will never be the same.
Ever since I viewed it through a different frame
I took a different approach than the way I always did
and now more and more is changing and I really like it
There seems to be a freedom that I had yet to find before
and suddenly closed opportunities are becoming open doors
far beyond what I expected things to be
a simple reframing has set me free.
what I thought could never be has come to be
and now I see the world through a lens of possibility
simply because I help up a little frame
and placed it around my goals today.
