What barriers are blocking your path to achieving your goals?
Whether your goals are; - Running a sub 3-hour marathon - Squatting 100kg - Breaking the squat or Press-up century (100 reps) - Or even getting up the stairs without breathing heavyyour goals can be achievable but also can be blocked!
What has blocked you in the past and what currently blocks you now?
Get three different colours and a piece of paper:
- Colour 1 - Write down all the barriers that have blocked you in the past and what are currently blocking you
- Colour 2 - Circle the barriers that are recurring
- Colour 3 - Cross out the barriers that you have overcome and outgoing
Now you have a frame for creating a strategy to combat the barriers!
Hope you feel better with Battling barriers and push even harder the next time you start a workout!
Have a great new years and remember... YOUR GOALS ARE ACHIEVABLE!
P.S. Post your list on here and put your recurring barriers, if any, in italic fashion so we know!
Sadly, my main barriers are my chronic illness. Which I cannot totally overcome. But with a lot of work I have been able to make them a teensy bit less of a barrier combined with being more reasonable about my goals
I need to think about my list for goals. They keep changing. Probably something I should do
So, I got out my monthly goal planner. Since I don't loft weights in the winter (my garage isn't insulated, too cold,) my goal for January is to get in 2 "good/solid" workouts a week (and to stay active the other day, using my Fit bit or doing yoga).
Barriers might be:1) chronic health issues -But this goal should be obtainable even if I get a flair up. 2) fitting it in between work and housewife duties - I will delegate grocery shopping to my college age boys to help with time constraints.
