Don’t just go for the goal, go for the breakthrough

i dare you to go for the breakthrough

The devil is a tricky little bastard.  He tries to make you think things are “too hard” to keep you from your breakthrough.

 ”it’s too hard to lose weight.”

“it’s too hard to save money.”

“it’s too hard to start a business.”

“it’s too hard to grow my business.”

“it’s too hard to comprehend the bible.” ß-so it collects dust on the shelf

“it’s too hard to blah, blah, blah.”

 To hell with the devil.  I’ve come to learn that whenever I think something is too hard, that’s exactly when I need to press in and go for it. Moreover, I’ve learned that it’s never about achieving the goal it’s about receiving the breakthrough.

Let me explain.

You see, achieving goals is great.  There’s satisfaction in knowing you’ve done something you didn’t think you could.  But when you think about it, is achieving a goal really anything more than just checking things off your to-do list?  Is it nothing more than proving something to yourself and the world?  If so, then aren’t goals purely based in ego?

On the other hand, when a breakthrough accompanies the achievement of the goal, change occurs and  suddenly you are ready for your next level.  Your spirit evolves.  A shift takes place.  Something comes alive inside and it doesn’t need ego-driven outward approval like a goal does.  God is propelling you…

Breakthroughs signal real, deep transformation and the cool thing is, sometimes the breakthrough can happen before you get to the goal.   

how did i let this happen?

Here’s a quick personal story…

My weight had gotten completely out of control.  I looked in the mirror one day and realized that over a 2-year period, I had gained 27 lbs.  I looked and felt like a mess.  I needed to get it together and fast.

Compounding my anxiety was the fact that my 40th birthday was 18 months away and I was NOT going to go into this new era of my life looking crazy.  I needed to be fit, fine and fabulous.  That was my goal.

Knowing that I couldn’t lose the weight on my own, I hooked up with a trainer.  My very first session with John Hall was so frickin hard, I was ready to run from that gym never to return again.

But John refused to let me quit.

Every Thursday afternoon and Saturday morning at 7:00 a.m., for 16 months I worked my ass off .  As a result, I lost the weight, transformed my body and felt better than I had in years.  I had reached my goal.

It wasn’t the goal that changed me though.  It was the breakthroughs.   

Breakthrough #1: I am in total control of my beautiful body and even though I’m 40+,  I don’t have to let it give way to age, hormonal changes or anything else that comes with midlife.  No doctor is ever gonna care for me better than ME.

the goal...reached!

Breakthrough #2: I love my body and it is perfectly created.  Most of my life I had body image issues.  Those are now long gone.   I may not be a “10” according to the world’s standards but I proudly set my own standards.

Breakthrough #3: I am strong beyond belief…in fact, I am unstoppable.

Breakthrough #4: I will listen to my body and act immediately when it sends me a signal that something is out of wack.  No more ignoring my internal signs.

Breakthrough #5: With all of the health challenges I’ve faced and overcome, I know that part of my divine assignment is to be an example and to inspire other powerful (and busy) women around the world to achieve great health.

Look at that.  One goal, 5 breakthroughs.  Talk about getting your money’s worth! 

There were NEVER easy training days with John.  The stronger I got, the harder my sessions got.  Nevertheless, I refused to let the devil make me believe it was “too hard.”  Can you imagine where I’d be (and what I’d look like) if I let the devil talk me out of enduring what I perceived to be “too hard?”

Whenever you have a challenge, wherever you feel resistance, that’s the area where a massive breakthrough is waiting for you.  Sure you can simply set a goal to lose weight, grow your business or read the bible daily but what would happen if you put your FOCUS on the breakthrough? 

What kind of breakthroughs are you looking for this year?  What goals can you set to receive those breakthroughs?
