Have you ever found yourself halfway through a challenge, feeling disconnected from your original intentions? Or maybe you've experienced setbacks and unexpected events that threw you off track?
Well, fear not, because today we'll explore the art of picking the right container and time period for challenges and how to navigate those dips that often occur. We'll hear from our host as she shares her own personal experiences with challenges, including her popular eight-week self-portrait challenge in the Self Portrait Method community . She'll reveal the secrets to its success and why an eight-week timeframe is the "Goldilocks spot" for creating lasting change.
The goal with a challenge is to create lasting change
Challenges shouldn't be all about achieving a goal and moving on. They should create lasting change. Allow yourself space between challenges to integrate new skills and create something meaningful. Remember, it's about the journey, not just the destination.
Fear not the dreaded half-way point
At the halfway point of a challenge, you may start to feel disconnected from your initial intentions. Don't worry, it happens to the best of us! Take a moment to revisit your foundational principles, intentions, and resources. It'll help you stay on track and refocus
The Importance of Motivation: "I can incentivize, I can inspire, I can try to rally all day long, but at the end of the day, people aren't going to do anything that they don't want to do. You have to be ready."
