I enjoy a good challenge. Actually, I enjoy a GREAT challenge. Do you?
I love pushing myself beyond where I thought I could go. Whether it be physically, spiritually or emotionally, I like to see what I’m made of.
The only way to find out is to challenge myself.
When I started this 30 Day Turnaround Challenge, I committed to something that would be a stretch for me…to work on my memoir for a minimum of 30 minutes a day.
Now mind you, writing for 30 minutes a day is not difficult at all… for me. For some people, it might be. But for me, not at all.
Yet, writing my memoir is not just any type of writing. It’s very deep.
It’s the same when I decided to commit and train to do a sprint triathlon a little over a month ago. It wasn’t making the commitment that was tough. It was sticking with the training on a consistent basis.
Truth be told, making commitments are done all the time for any number of outcomes.
Sticking with the commitment is a completely different story.
Lay a Foundation
When done right, which simply means creating a habit, we lay the foundation for a changed behavior with short periods of time, like 30 days, in which we are consistent. Whether it be in our eating, exercise, business practices,
Challenges let us know what we are made of… or not. Never in my wildest dreams would I have thought my initial goal of crossing the finish line for my first marathon would lead to a passion for the sport. But it has and that led to the sprint triathlon.
As we come to the end of the 30 Day Turnaround Challenge, now is the time to decide what you want the next 30 days to be for you. Do you simply want to say, “I did it. I endured the 30 days and I’m done,” or do you want this to be the start of a better quality of life?
It’s entirely up to you. Your day to day actions will reveal so much.
