Bicycling Looking Forward or Glancing Back?

G’day,

Annie from Australia here!

You are Ingenious!

Now before we begin…

Grab a glass of water …or your favorite beverage-  I’m drinking filtered rainwater…

Let’s take a moment for some perspective… stop and breathe.

Now…

Close your eyes for a moment…

Interesting question today –

Think of 3 areas of your life you would love to impact?

Got the 3 areas, it could be physical, financial, family, social, spiritual or learning?

Just pick your Top 3 areas you would like to see a change!

Ok? You name it and write it down.

Now – If you could think of anything… you want to achieve in the next 30 days In each of those 3 areas what would it be?

It’s ok to dream a little! – You deserve it!

Have you ever put off getting a reward, until you had completed something?

I had a friend who would schedule his morning and no matter what happened, he would not have lunch until those things on his list were completed.

Some days it was 2 or 3pm or later he finally got lunch – and He always got things done.

So when do you get your reward?

Some people think taking action deserves a reward.

Mmm interesting… I grew up with this belief.

My mother worked from home, she would have a busy day or a difficult customer and after the customer had gone – she would go and get a reward of a couple of pieces of chocolate. (Writing this now – I used to treasure catching her with the chocolate – so I could have a piece too.)

Anyway…

I didn’t realize till recently, its easy to reward the wrong thing.

You see – I had been trying to start a business for many years.

I would take action move forward and come across a brick wall and stop.

And I would reward myself for taking action. A bit like my mothers chocolate reward.

I was listening to my daughter who was in the middle of teacher training. We were watching a movie on Tuesday which is movie night…She said, Mum I deserve to watch a movie I haven’t done anything like that for 6 weeks.

So I asked her to look not at what she had done, but what she had yet to accomplish…

That is how you measure accomplishment…

–       Forward looking…what needs to be done yet to finish!

–       not

–       Backwards glancing…look at what I’ve done!

Recently I was watching the road push bike racing in the biggest race of the year the Tour D France – a passion of my husband’s and his enthusiasm is so infectious the whole family ends up watching it.

I found it was always interesting watching the finish line and those racers who were forward looking to racing to the finish line.

Verses

The rider who was compelled to backwards glancing – it was not often a backwards glancing person would win the race… the focus was in the wrong area.

I would stand up and yell at the television to the rider – don’t look back!

Be forward looking and reward your accomplishments!

How are You going to – accomplish your 3 items in the next 30 day!

Create a great day!
