Persistence not perfection

When it comes to making our goals and achieving them, it takes hard work. You must create an action plan and be ready to excute all steps to make it happen. Most of us, including myself think you need to be perfect to meet your goal. The art of perfection is conforming to the definition of the ideal type and being beyond improvement. Ugh…that doesn’t exist and I would crumble trying to meet those standards. Insert PERSISTENCE! 

We all can be persistent. We can endure obstacles that get in our way and still find the path we are traveling. I have gotten lost multiple times in my journeys to achieving various goals. Unfortunately I wandered quite far the last few days. I have been running, running, running and when I get too overwhelmed, I fall and I fall hard. Every day pressures for perfection get to everyone. Eat perfect, workout every day, clean house, being on your game at work and being the best spouse, partner or mom is just an illusion. I’ve never met anyone who is perfect, but I am surrounded by some persistent people. 

So today marks my 60 day challenge to myself. Each day my goal is to do 20 mins of house keeping, 1 hour of yoga or exercise, read my weekly mantra and to follow my meal plan. That being said, I also need to listen to my mind and body and if I need a break, I can take it. 

What will your 60 day PERSISTENCE challenge be? Maybe it’s to pay a compliment to someone everyday, including yourself!! How about getting your daily H2O in? What about starting to have a date night or family night and go phone FREE? 

Can’t wait to hear what you will all be doing and how you will better your best by being consistent!
