This episode is Lisa's first minisode, the Motivating
Power of your "WHY"
and it starts with a brief review of
S.M.A.R.T. goals. Refresher? Check out
Lisa's guest post for TechMama's
on Tips For Family Goal
The Bad News is that achieving goals is
difficult. Change is uncomfortable. If you have a goal,
you're going to have to work, get off the couch, turn off Facebook,
say no to drinks after work or go to the gym when you'd rather have
a snack. I know! Bummer! So...
Gimme a Good Reason. That's what we
need to get past the discomfort. What's YOUR Reason? Maybe you
think you already know, that it's obvious.
But Here's a Warning.
Your WHY will be less
effective if it's powered by shame or avoidance, or a "should".
White-knuckling can work for a while but may not stick and negative
language like reason's including "not" and "don't" generally fail
too as Lisa mentioned in Super Power U Episode #4
A Powerful WHY is inspiring or exciting,
reflects where you're headed, where you want to go, the person you
want to be and the life you want generates a feeling of
adventure, pride, accomplishment, contribution, celebration, or
inspiration and makes you feel good
"A compelling reason is exciting, it captures your
attention, it makes you think, I want to do this, I want to go for
it. When you have a compelling reason, you're like, okay, when do
we start? A compelling reason compels you to action, that's why
it's called a compelling reason." - Rachel Hart
