Success One Step At A Time
Yesterday, I biked in my first race of the season, at The Skinny Tire Festival! The entire race spanned through Arches National Park, along the mighty Colorado River surrounded by red rock cliffs, and out to Dead Horse Point overlooking the huge expanse of Canyonlands National Park.
This whole journey began last autumn, when I decided to take up cycling as my new sport for 2017. As all intentions go, I needed to take baby steps in order to reach my goals. I started by training with Dr. Max Testa, Ph.D….He’s worked with professional cyclist and pro cycling teams for over 25 years and has participated in 17 Tour de France races.
As I geared up for this weekend’s adventure, I made it a habit to a specific visualization, Success One Step At A Time. Simply listening to this before each biking session helped me find the confidence to get out of my comfort zone, and live my life to the fullest.
This adventure of trying a new sport has helped me feel genuinely motivated, inspired, and empowered in a real and sustainable way…And I want you to feel that way to.
No matter what your goals are, remember that the first step is to come up with an action plan that inspires you and connects you to your intentions. It can be as simple as listening to this 10-minute visualization every week to help you put one foot in front of the other so you have the power to take control of your life.
Think of it as spring cleaning. You know how it is. All you started to do was straighten up your closet, but you figure…Well, as long as I’m doing this, I can’t very well leave that alone. With one mess cleaned up, that still untidy pile next to it can no longer be ignored. So one thing leads to another, leads to another, leads to another. In the same way, making small steps to achieve your goals will start a domino effect that eventually makes your overall life better.
Hopefully, this visualization will help you reinforce your intentions and start to make the changes that will make life just a little bit better.
