Getting your goals - another tip and quote
Now that you are aware that you must have a compelling desire to help you stay on the path to reach your goals, you may have to let go of some "things" in your life to make space in your life. Just like you can't elegantly stuff a new suit in an already full closet, you can't keep on adding to your already full life. Something's got to go.
Coach's challenge: You need to choose between a full (like in stuffed) life and a fulfilling one. Like between huge meals of fast food or slow, gourmet, makes your heart melt food. Same applies to relationships. Take paper and pencil and list all the "junk" in your life, anything or anybody that does not "promote your growth", even if it's not a "junk" activity or relationship. There are only so many hours in a day. Stop trying to be all things to all people. Be courageous. Be selective in how you invest yourself. Put the useless out with this week's garbage and change the lock on your heart to make sure it does not come back.
