1 Impossible Goal????

Hi Brooke,

I’ve been in Scholars since August and I LOVE it! I’ve grown so much and gained so much clarity in streamlining my life. I didn’t realize how cluttered I was!

I’m curious about my Impossible goal… I’ve been trying to grow my own coaching business for the past 4 years but my learning curve has kept me in the learning/implementing phase and on my rear end. It takes me a long time to complete tasks since all of this is new to me. I’ve gained about 50 lbs, which totally stinks because the niche I work with are frustrated runners! The added weight is a drag and I’ve been toting it around for too long, just like the clutter in my home and mind (which is now minimal thank you to scholars). I have been “wanting” to lose this weight for the past 4 years and did not have the protocol to be successful.

I set my impossible goal to be 115 lbs by December 31st, 2018, which is a loss of 51 lbs. I have not been under 120 since high school. This goal is impossible in my mind and I want to stay totally committed. I’ve lost 5 so far 🙂

When I continue to try to grow my business (on top of work my full time job as a Special Ed teacher) and take massive action to fill an upcoming retreat in May and 10 running clinics over the summer, I end up spending so much time on my computer and the first thing that I put aside is all of my self-care and running. It seems that I don’t have enough time to do it all.

Should I put my business on hold while I focus on getting to my impossible goal of 115? I want to make sure the weight loss remains my priority, or is my impossible goal to reach 115 WHILE growing my business????? You have stated multiple times that we should focus on 1 impossible goal. My hunch is that by focusing on my weight loss I will unlock so much untapped potential along the way and be able to increase my energy and productivity in ways I can’t envision right now…

Any advice on this would be greatly appreciated,
Sarah Richardson
