Do you remember reinforcement stickers? I used to use them all the time with my Trapper Keeper™, and I currently use them for pages in my planner. (Yes, I still use a paper planner, and I love it!)
Often, after a couple of weeks of trying to make a change on our own, we will find ourselves feeling either discouraged or overwhelmed. Maybe we bit off more than we could chew, or we realize our skills are inadequate for the task at hand. The good news is, we can always reach out for reinforcements. We call a friend or family member to come alongside and help us keep moving forward. Or, we can sign up for a class or coaching session to help us tackle some especially challenging development. Frequently, the best course of action is to hire a professional who can come in, identify exactly what needs to be done and make it happen.
Are you feeling skeptical about your ability to see your resolution through to completion? If so, this is nothing to be ashamed of. Instead of giving up or shelving your goal, bring in a resource who can get you back on track. A goal that is worth pursuing is worth investing in.
