It’s that time again: challenge time.
A 30-day challenge can be more manageable if your long-term goals seem to be too overwhelming. A 30-day challenge is a short-term commitment that can help jumpstart your long-term goals.
I like these types of challenges because 30-day challenges keep you focused and they can be extremely beneficial because you can schedule them several times a year.
Challenges can help you to create new habits, test your strengths and weaknesses and help you to be more consistent.
Think about it…
What can you accomplish in the next 30 days that will greatly improve your life and well-being?
How do you imagine you’d feel at the end of your successful challenge?
We all have areas in our lives that we need to work on.
My question to you is…
What short-term goal would you like to complete in the next 30 days?
Have you been thinking about quitting an unhealthy or bad habit?
Giving up certain foods for 30 days?
Would you like to read more consistently?
Do you want to save some money this month?
Do you want to workout daily?
Detox from social media?
Change your negative thinking into more positive thinking?
Organize or de-clutter your space?
Begin the practice of quiet time, meditation or prayer?
Cut back on sugar and sweets?
Try something new this month?
Whatever it is just make sure that your challenge is manageable and achievable.
Remember, your results can build your self-confidence, help you to grow as a person, make you feel more accomplished and you’ll be more productive throughout the coming year.
If this is your first attempt at a 30-day challenge don’t beat yourself up if you mess up; just decide that you’ll learn from any mistakes and keep going.
You might have to restart several times before you succeed and you’ll always have the option to decrease your challenge to 14 or 21 days to start.
It’s not about being perfect. It’s about being consistent for a specific amount of time.
Keep it simple, commit to your challenge, track your progress and stick to it.
I want to challenge you to challenge yourself for the next 30 days.
Consistency over time equals success.
You’ve got this!
