Have you ever set a goal, and then just kept it to yourself?
Did you reach that goal?
I have done it a hundred times. I set a goal, but then I just kinda kept it to myself. Less pressure that way, you know?
That was a bad plan for me, and I am guessing it wasn’t too helpful for you either.
Lately a few people have shared their goal with me, and also with a few others. In fact at the moment the entire Cr8 Fitness family is working on a goal that started out with one person. Our Million Meter Match is all about a goal and working a daily plan in order to reach that goal. You know what? We are doing amazingly. We're just mid point on our time line but over half way there in outcome.
That is because we shared. We shared our goal and we are consequently sharing the work load.
On top of that, we kept track of our progress and shared our successes too.
Turns out that sharing your progress is one of the best things you can do.
Check out this article that shows how participants in a weight loss challenge actually lost about 5x more when they shared how they were doing (including selfies of their progress!)
If you have a goal - Share it.
Like mom always said, sharing is fun!
To your best health,
