152: Getting Back on Track

Oftentimes, we’re way too hard on ourselves when it comes to our habits and discipline. We spend so much time feeling down about veering off track that we forget that nobody is perfect. It’s okay to have off days. Today I talked with Stacy, a busy career woman who has a two-hour commute to work and on top of that, manages income rental properties out of state. We dive into how she can use the 4 A’s to overcome the hurdles she faces and the tiny steps she can take to get back on track. I touch on discipline, how to acknowledge that you’re doing a lot better than you give yourself credit for, and why you should find an accountability partner to support you on your journey toward your goals.

Show Notes

What’s In This Episode:

  • Veering back on track when you realize you aren’t quite where you want to be
  • Realizing that what you see in other people’s lives isn’t always accurate
  • Acknowledging that you’re doing better than you give yourself credit for
  • The 4 A’s to overcoming an obstacle
  • Finding an accountability partner to support you

What To Do Next:

  • It’s okay if you have veered off track or if sometimes you don’t feel motivated, let go of what you’ve done in the past. I want to encourage you to stay focused and not to waste a single moment second-guessing what you’ve already done. Move forward and realize that tomorrow is a new day and a unique opportunity to use those four A’s for overcoming obstacles.
