If you're like me, and committed to making 2012 The Year of YOU, then you have most likely had days filled with Woohoo! I'm really doing this!, days where you feel more like Boohoo! This is too hard, and then there are those OTHER days...
I call them the Uh-Oh, Oh No, I've hit a dreaded plateau days.
In my own weight loss journey in 2012, I've already encountered my first plateau. (It's ALWAYS the place I've given up in before. Not this time - Woohoo!)
So how are you handling your Uh-Oh, Oh No, Here Comes The Plateau?
Have you shrunk, shut down, caved in, or given up? (And if so, how's that working for ya?)
Or have you chosen to stay expanded, trusting that you WILL work your way through the plateau, and instead of holding your breath, waiting for the Woohoo! to show up, have you LOVED yourself through your plateau?
Let me repeat that.
Have you loved yourself through your plateau?
In 2012, I'm learning that loving myself through the Boohoo! makes it so much easier to move through it and get back to the Woohoo!
The next time you hit a plateau, what if you loved yourself through it?
Here are 3 important tips to keep in mind when successfully working through your plateau:
1. Check in with yourself
On a scale of 1 to 10, how successful have you been in taking action, being consistent, and consciously making choices and changes to reach your goal? If you've legitimately been rocking your process, you'll most likely fall in somewhere between 8-10. If you've been inconsistently rocking it, you may rate yourself between 5-7. And if you've just plain been phoning it in, you may rate 1-4. Regardless of where you're landing on this scale, don't beat yourself up. Instead, love yourself through this process. And invite yourself to step up your game, if needed. By showing up differently for yourself, you may just cause that plateau to vanish.
2. Get real with yourself
Intuitively, you know if your plateau is simply a momentary PAUSE on your journey or if you need to course correct to get where you want to go. So take a moment to get real with yourself. Is this a question of surrendering your need for results today, or is this a matter of doing something different to get your desired result? Only YOU can know for sure. Tune in, listen, trust, and honor the message you receive. Again, no need to beat yourself up, spiral into failure or fear, or GIVE UP. Learning to love yourself through your plateau will help you get back on track.
3. Act accordingly
Whatever messages you received in Step 2, be willing to act accordingly. Do you need to push past a limiting belief, block, fear, or doubt? Do you need to step it up and show up differently for yourself? Do you need to enlist the help of a mentor, coach, trainer, strategist, therapist, guru, etc? If you find that you can't reach your goal on your own, part of acting accordingly will be to ask for help. It's not a sign of weakness. It's actually another show of self love and radical self care.
Remember, if 2012 is the Year of YOU, it can't just be in the moments of Woohoo! You must also be there for yourself when you hit the dreaded Uh-Oh, Oh No, Here Comes The Plateau. After all, it's HOW we weather the Boohoo that will ultimately allow us to experience and celebrate the Woohoo! By embracing this core concept of loving yourself through the ups, downs, and plateaus you experience in 2012, you will reach your goals, emotionally intact and healthier and happier from the inside out.
