Polaris Global success education program, Beyond Freedom Evolution, can literally be applied to every facet of your life. Proof in point…
Polaris Global lesson: you snooze, you lose!
The alarm blared at me this morning. I swear the clock figured out a way to increase the level of irritability. Urgh. And then the kids were not at all cooperative, I couldn’t find the remote control, and finally I found myself standing in front of my wardrobe staring blankly for ages, when I should have already been out the door.
Then my Beyond Freedom Evolution gear clicks in…
Snap out of it woman!
My schedule today was insane. I knew it. My kids knew it. My stupid alarm knew it. And it started with a six-mile run as part of my half-marathon training. My longest run in a really long time. And I really didn’t feel like it. Really really.
BFE mindset: Just put on your runners, and get in the car and get there. Walk it if you have to, just go.
So I did.
And then when I got there it was a beautiful morning, the river was glistening and there was a cool breeze. It was one of those moments when nature reminds you how beautiful it is. So maybe a little jog, just to the bridge two miles up the road would be doable. And I could walk from there.
And then, as the bridge was approaching and I’m looking forward to slowing down, my favorite motivating song comes on, and pow! Extra power kick, “You shoot me down, but I won’t fall, I am Titaniuuuum….”
I’m at the playground two miles passed the bridge. Yeah! I check in on my little running companion in his pram, who is bouncing and laughing at the ride. He’s having so much fun he’s beaming. Well, okay then champ let’s keep going!
And before I knew it… six miles finished. Scheduled training complete. When I could barely brush my teeth this morning.
Tiny little pieces, one step at a time, and my BFE mindset totally got me over the finish line today.
Sometimes, the step to success really is as small as putting on your shoes.
