“I’m the type of person that _____.” ⤵️ When I travel, I plan ahead and look for a local Whole Foods, healthy restaurants, stay in an Airbnb with a kitchen, and/or order from a meal prep company. Even if it’s raining, snowing, or hot out, I still go for my morning run. ————————————————————— One of our favorite podcast recommendations to give to clients that are having trouble with committing to their goals, is Episode #021 “W.H.O.O.P.I.E.” by @benbergeron on his “Chasing Excellence” podcast series. In this episode, Ben talks about setting goals, breaking down the acronym W.H.O.O.P.I.E. (W)ISHING & (H)OPING ^ — these two are tied together. What do you say you want? What do you say is important to you? What is your vision for yourself? Who do you want to be and what do you want to achieve? (O)UTCOMES — Making your goal specific and measurable. What is it going to feel like when you achieve this goal? What happens when you achieve this goal? You should feel excited and emotional. (O)BSTACLES — Understanding that things are going to get in your way. Note every possible obstacle: travel, work, kids, events, time, weather, etc. (P)LAN — Create the step-by-step procedure that will get you to reach that goal. Every day, no matter what obstacles, do I know what is expected of myself to achieve the goal that I said I wanted to achieve? (I)’M THE TYPE OF PERSON THAT... — Say this to yourself, use your list of obstacles and mold it with your plan. Attach your identity to convince yourself that you are that person you say you want to be. The daily discipline is what will get you there. Remember: you are the sum of your habits. (E)XECUTE — Take massive action and do it to your every being every moment that you have the chance. We are always in choice. ————————————————————— We don’t achieve goals usually not because we aren’t capable, but instead because we haven’t clearly understood what we mean when we say we want to achieve that goal. Have you written out your goals using W.H.O.O.P.I.E?
TRUTH BOMB #4: You cannot achieve a goal without becoming the person that it takes to achieve it
