Today’s episode is all about taking action and achieving your goals. This is even when you feel overwhelmed by life’s endless possibilities. We’re going to discuss how I signed a six-month contract with myself. Also, how it has helped me create healthy boundaries and achieve consistency when pursuing my goals.
As someone who is always trying to explore new possibilities and seek growth, I find I can get lost in the abundance of options available. It’s like scrolling on Netflix forever, not being able to decide what to watch. I had all this knowledge and wanted to put it into action, but I struggled to find the right direction.
I SIGNED A CONTRACT WITH MYSELF FOR 6 MONTHS
That’s when I decided to sign a contract with myself. I know it might seem like a big commitment, but the beauty of a contract is that it has an end date. For me, signing a contract had a different level of authority than making a promise to myself. It allowed me to create healthy boundaries and put things into motion consistently. I had to find what would work for me, and a contract with a specific timeline gave me that structure.
In my contract, I outlined what I want to achieve in the next six months and how I will do it. I made sure to give myself space for fun things, but I also wanted to be intentional about it. For example, I love reading, but I noticed that I was spending too much time reading fiction and not enough time pursuing my goals. So, I added a clause to my contract that I would only read one fiction book per week. It’s a small change, but it helps me be more intentional about how I spend my time.
The idea of a contract might seem daunting to some, but worth considering if you struggle to find consistency when pursuing your goals. It helps you create a clear roadmap and hold yourself accountable. And, as I said earlier, it has an end date, so you don’t have to commit to it forever.
Today’s episode is a reminder to learn the importance of self-care on your journey toward greatness while tapping into your inner strength and determination to overcome obstacles and reach success. A contract with yourself might be just the thing that helps you find that balance.
