1. You’re speaking things into existence, but not putting in the moves
“Faith without works is dead” is a famous quote for a reason.
Some people speak their dreams into the universe via a New Year resolution, prayer, or even an epic post on social media.
But as soon as months go by, it might seem you’re not getting closer to your goal. Many people would say it’s because you’re not putting in the work.
But let’s be honest, the thought of work is exhausting, especially if you already have a lot of other stuff to manage (family, kids, a “work” job that you hate but is necessary for paying bills).
I prefer the words “put in the moves.”
Breaking down your goals into tiny moves or steps might make the “work” seem less overwhelming, and then you can steadily move closer to your goal while still shouting it from the mountain top.
Got a savings goal? Start off by saving a dollar a day. Want a new job? Apply for a position once a week, then slowly increase your applications as you get in the flow. You got this.
