Need to stay focused on "MY" goals and stop helping others!

Tuesday, May 17, 2011

I hate to be mean to others but I think it's time!!! I've noticed that everytime I take a step forward.....someone pulls me back 2 steps!!! I use to give an exercise class at church to help out not only my sister but some others in the church as well. Well that didn't work out because everyone was lazy and didn't want to workout! Now that I have myself focused and in the gym more....I have a neighbor that wants me to walk with her "2" days out the week. So I change my classes around at the gym just to walk and where is she???? I shouldn't have to call her on these days to ask,"are we walking today"?? I feel she should call me...plus if its something you want to do, you will see to it that it gets done!!! I've made up my mind that I'm not calling her and I'm changing things/my classes back and I'm going to focus on me once again. I need to stop letting people get in the middle of what I'm doing for myself...I don't know why I keep doing that!!! emoticon

    Aw- take it as a compliment you are doing so well that others are hoping your focus is contagious! I think it's a great idea to focus on you- they need to find their motivations within themselves. I LOVE your Janet background, by the way :) emoticon emoticon

    I would call your friend and tell her that you can't walk with her because you prefer to go the gym on those days. And that she should call you a night before if she wants to walk so that you can schedule her in your routine.

    I had one of those no show but I always went on and walk even if she did not show up at our arranged place. Then she stopped all together.
    Just do what you have to do and avoid being taken for granted.

    Make yourself a priority, others can always join in at your pace:) Feel fearless, your success is nothing than overcoming obstacles and do not lose your enthusiasm to yourself. Now get shaking....:)

    I would definitely agree that sometimes we get caught up in helping others that we lose sight of our own focus. Like you, I have had others agree to work out with me but none of them ever came through. When it came down to actually doing the workout, they didn't have time or couldn't be found. I've decided that I need to keep my commitment to working even if they don't!
