Setting & Reaching Your Goals

No More Climbs to a Mountain-Top Goal
Is this what it looks and feels like to you?Look &

Is this how you see it? Are you a tiny blob struggling to climb a big mountain, a long climb up to your goal?





This is how some people look at the whole process. It is also how it's pictured in some material you might find. The goal is at the top of a mountain that you have to climb to reach.

With this approach, the message is 'all you need to proper motivation, a goal at the top and you can make it!'







If you've been looking at things this way, it can feel like a really impossible job - the top is way too high. It feels and looks way too hard to get to.

Then, there's the failure, the falling down. If you get part way up and reach a snag - do you fall all the way back to the bottom?

Looking at it this way, each time you get up or slide back a inch or two, the top looks even further away and more impossible to reach




Sometimes, it feels harder than others - like you've been left hanging on your own.


The fact is, people who look at it this way do not usually succeed. More people fail and totally quit when this is how they look at reaching their goals, especially when dealing with a chronic health condition like POTS or NHM.

It's easy to feel lost, like you've been left hanging
