Reach your Goal by Surrounding Yourself with Others Who Have the Same Goal
Posted on January 28, 2012 by Dawn Trautman, One of Thousands of Life Coaches on Noomii.
If you have trouble motivating yourself to reach a new goal, surround yourself with people who are already pursuing the same goal.
I am not a runner. Not at all. I even leave early whenever I need to go somewhere so that I don’t have to rush, because rushing feels too close to running. I always say that I’ll run if something is chasing me, which really doesn’t happen very often.
Last week I walked along a promenade among runners. And I almost wanted to run.
This weekend I read a lot of updates from people who ran a marathon in my city. And I almost wanted to run.
I will continue to get my exercise in other ways, but while I was surrounded by runners I wanted to run.
If you have trouble motivating yourself to go somewhere new, reach a new goal, face a new challenge, surround yourself with people who are already going where you are going. Simply being near them will help.
