What to do when you’re getting tired or overwhelmed?
This week of the WOMB program is a little different…
A little less than half the program is left, and for some, participating became a little too much.
So if you’re tired, uninspired or overwhelmed – take this week to integrate, catch up and prepare for the next…
But even if, for you, it’s all smooth sailing and you’re still enthusiastic, committed and going for it… there might be another time – that you might find yourself tired, exhausted, uninspired, unmotivated and wanting to stop or quit (or slow down)…
So this week is an opportunity to learn and practice a tool you can always use, when you hit… the wall (more about it below).
If you’re behind
Take this week to complete the assignments you’ve missed.
They’re important and if you just pull yourself together – you can catch up with just 15-20 minutes a day of working on your business…
And for everyone…
There is no success without completion.
It’s true that in order to have a chance to succeed in a race (as well as anything else in life) you need to start.
And you did start and if you’re reading it – then you did give everything you had so far.
But you can’t win the race (or achieve any success in life) if you quit in the middle and not reach the finish line.
My personal wall
As a marathon runner, I know how it feels.
I know how it feels to give everything I’ve got in training and preparing and then starting the race and giving everything… until… I hit the wall.
Every long-distance runner hit that wall, at one point or another.
It can be after 20km, or 30, or 40 (just 2km before the finish line).
And when I hit the wall… it looks like it’s over.
I have no energy left, no motivation, no hope and all I can think of… “it’s just not worth it…”
It looks very much like this:
But just like Dennis in this 2-minute clip from one of my favorite movies – “Run Fatboy, Run” – each time I hit the wall, I somehow managed to find an ounce of commitment, and with it, I broke thorough the wall and finished each marathon (in running and in life).
And now I invite you, if you found that you hit your wall in the WOMB program, to take this week to re-commit and go for it – so you can see what’s on the other side of the wall, which would allow you to reach the finish line.
On Friday – it’s going to be 100 days to the end of the year (and the end of this program);
If you’re ready to go for it – I will be there with you and for you, every step of the way.
That’s MY commitment to YOU. I am not giving up on YOU!
Let’s start with your MINDSET…
What do you need to succeed?
In the WOMB program and in everything in life – business, relationship, education, growing a garden, cooking a meal… anything… – perseverance is the secret to success.
Get in Line and Stay In Line.
Set your GOAL for this week…
Here’s a great goal for you:
I am going to re-commit and go for it – till the end.
How’s that for a 5-day challenge?
Choose the STRATEGY you will use…
Here is the 5-step process you could follow when you’re “hitting the wall” anytime, and in any area of life:
- Acknowledge what you DID and ACHIEVED so far
Look backwards, remember, notice and acknowledge any result, insight and success (big or small) you’ve already achieved.
(During a marathon, I keep counting the kilometers I already ran… celebrating each one in my mind).
- Re-focus on the main goal(s) you’re still going for
You have 100 days until the end of the year (and the program) – what is the main goal(s) you still want to achieve by then.
- Prepare to handle any wall coming your way
Knowing yourself – what might demotivate you, lower your energy, crash your focus, or stop you from giving your 100%?
And what could you do to overcome it if/when it happens?
- Look for help
You do not have to do it alone.
In life, as well as in this program, find who could support you when the going gets touch… and… ask for their help.
- Make a public commitment to go for it
Let the world know, and the world will support you in return.
PLAN your actions in your agenda…
Your next step is to physically plan this process in your agenda.
Plan to invest 10-15 minutes EVERY DAY in the coming 5 days to follow the process above.
AND… If you are behind on your assignments… try to find some time to complete them… and celebrate each step along the way.
Now it’s time to IMPLEMENT…
Take 10 minutes, right now, and…
- Day 1 – what did you get out of the program so far?
Make a complete list of all your insights and actual results… Sharing this list in a comment will not only motivate you, but will also inspire others that might be struggling at the moment;
- Day 2 – what would you want to achieve by the end of the program?
Focus on the one or two most important results you’d like to create in the coming 100 days;
- Day 3 – make a list of any “wall” that might stop you in the coming 100 days from giving your 100%, and…
write down for each “wall” what could you do to overcome it;
- Day 4 – make a list and share it in the comment: how can we support you – Vered, me, your buddies, the other participants…;
- Day 5 – find a way to make a public commitment – to go for it in the coming 100 days, and finish strong
Each day share with us in the comment box your ideas, insights and actions.
My commitment to you…
- I’m looking forward to read your process and ideas below;
- I will be there for you on Wednesday to support you with any question, challenge or setback you encounter;
- I’m looking forward to celebrate your progress and results on Friday (I’m curious to hear the goal(s) and plan you’ll come up with).
Live fully, stay awesome,
